"Happy to let you know that I will play Geneva and Paris,” he wrote on Twitter. “Until then I will use the time to train. Can’t wait to play in Switzerland again.”

Federer last played in Dubai, where he made his long awaited return to the tour and defeated Dan Evans before failing to convert a match point and losing to Nikoloz Basilashvili in the quarterfinals. He last appeared at Roland-Garros in 2019, and reached the semifinals before falling to Rafael Nadal.

The news means that Federer has officially ruled himself out of Madrid and Roland-Garros.

The Swiss owns a 223-70 lifetime record on clay, with 11 titles. At Roland Garros Federer owns a 70-17 record, which includes his win in the 2009 final over Robin Soderling.
