However, the 17-time Grand Slam champion will make his comeback on court even before that.
According to bolamarela.pt, the Swiss will feature in the International Premier Tennis League (IPTL) that is scheduled to be held in December this season.
Federer, who hasn’t played a match since the Wimbledon this year, has been an integral part of the IPTL, a team exhibition event that is held across five countries, Japan (December 2-4), Singapore (Dec. 6-8), Philippines (Dec. 9-11), UAE (Dec. 13-15), and India (Dec. 16-18).
The Swiss maestro led the Indian Aces to victory in the inaugural tournament in 2014, before moving to UAE Royals in the subsequent year.
Besides, Grand Slam champions Maria Sharapova and Ana Ivanovic will be among the other marquee players to feature in the third edition of the IPTL.
