Roger Federer will play French Open again in 2020

Roger Federer has confirmed that he will return to Paris for Roland-Garros 2020.

Roger Federer, the 2009 champion, returned to the terre battue this summer following two years away from Roland-Garros, reaching the semi-finals with a captivating campaign.

"I will play the French Open and I probably won't play much before that," the Swiss told CNN regarding his summer schedule next season.

"Because I will need some time away from it. I will need some time with the family, we need vacation, we need a break.

"Especially if I'm playing the Olympics (Tokyo) and all that. So I'll probably play the French, Halle, Wimbledon, the Olympics, maybe Cincinnati and then the US Open.

The 38-year-old could arrive in the French capital level in the all-time list of Grand Slam champions with perennial rival Rafael Nadal.

The Spaniard currently holds the Roland-Garros and US Open titles, moving onto 19 majors in New York back in September, just one behind Federer's haul.

Building on the Australian Open's conclusion, Roland-Garros is set to provide the arena for another monumental fortnight in the record books.
