Roger Federer Nervous For Clay Court Season
Roger Federer plays a tour-level singles match on clay for the first time in three years next week, and he appears to be nervous about it.
The 20-time Grand Slam tennis champion said he's "not confident" about returning to a clay court because he's "forgotten how to slide." Federer heads into the Madrid Open, a tournament he has won twice before while it has been contested on clay, in good form having lost just twice in 2019 so far.
Qualifiers for the Madrid Open are already underway but Federer will not play until the second round of the tournament proper.
