Whilst the rest of the ATP Tour are battling it out in Monte Carlo, Roger Federer was spotted training in Dubai this week – a home from home for the tennis legend – as he gears up for a big couple of months ahead.

A fan posted a picture with the 35-year-old this week (below), believed to be after one of his practice sessions in the city.

Federer is now back in full training mode following a period of rest but he has yet to confirm whether he will play in next month’s French Open.

The 18-time Grand Slam champion has previously stated that he wants to limit his time on clay and focus on going for more glory at Wimbledon – a tournament he has won on seven occasions.

For the Swiss – 2017 has gone as well as it possibly could have done. After famously claiming the Australian Open title, he went onto win back-to-back titles at Indian Wells and the Miami Open.

Earlier this month, Federer participated in The Match for Africa 3 exhibition clash against Andy Murray in Zurich – raising money for his foundation’s charitable work.

And on April 29, he will be in Seattle to face John Isner in the fourth installment of the series.
