Roger Federer has sent a message to his fans around the world ahead of his tennis comeback.
He said on Twitter: “So here we are, about to take off for my flight to Doha.
“It’s been a year since my last travel to any event. I am very excited.
“It’s also a moment where I can thank all the people involved who made this possible.
It’s been a long and hard road, so I’m not at the finish line yet.
“But it’s good you know. I feel like I’m in a good place, I’ve been practising well.
“Just really pumped up, I hope you guys are going to tune in to watch it.
“I hope I see you again very soon. Take care everybody.”
