Roger Federer is ready to make for his comeback from an injury and committed to playing at the 2016 Miami Open. The tennis tournament is scheduled from March 23 to April 3 in Key Biscayne Florida in the United States.

Just days before Federer also shared on his social media account his tennis training as he tries to get fully healthy for his next tournament.

The 17-time tennis Grand Slam champion is raring to get back into the action after knee injury and surgery right around the 2016 Australian Open, where he lost in the semifinals to rival and World No. 1 Novak Djokovic in four sets, 1-6 2-6 6-3 3-6.

The Miami Open is just the third tennis tournament for 2016 for Federer. He lost in the final of the Brisbane International in Brisbane, Australia to start the year to Canadian Milos Raonic in straight sets, 4-6 4-6.

Federer has a record of 8 wins against 2 losses this year and has already earned $552,325 prize money despite missing the tournaments in Rotterdam (ABN AMRO World Tennis Tournament), Dubai (Dubai Duty Free Tennis Championships) and Indian Wells (BNP Paribas Open).

Federer is aiming for an 18th tennis Grand Slam title at the age of 34 years old and 18 years as a professional player. The Miami Open will be one of the warm-up tennis tournaments for Federer as he prepares for the next Grand Slam tournament on schedule, the 2016 French Open at Roland Garros scheduled from May 6 to June 5, 2016.
