Roger Federer has indicated that he's ready to return to tennis after a month of family time when he plays starting in just over a week at his home Basel Indoors event.
Despite American speculation that the world No. 1 might pack it all in until January when he begins the Australian Open run-up with a New Year's Eve exhibition in Abu Dhabi, Federer laid out his most current plans on his Facebook page.
"I've been back practising and training now for some time and all is going well", said the 15-time Grand Slam champion who has been spending time with his wife and new twin girls born three months ago.
"I feel much better. I'm looking forward to playing my hometown tournament in Basel".
Federer made his last appearance on court in a Davis Cup win over Italy the weekend after losing the US Open final to Juan Martin Del Potro, himself now injured and resting in South America after failing to impress in the autumn.
Federer said that his time away from tennis has been well-spent: "I've also had a chance to spend some amazing time with my family. Myla and Charlene are doing great".
"After training yesterday, Mirka and I took them for a walk along Lake Zurich. I am always excited to be back in Switzerland!"
