Roger Federer to Play in an Exhibition Match Rather Than Mexican Open

Roger Federer is all set to agree for an exhibition match to take place at Mexico next year, as he is unable to make it to the Mexican open due to fixture congestion. Federer has never been part of the Mexican open in the past, but the organisers have been extremely keen to rope him in. After a few years without major titles, Federer has made a return to successful tennis by winning two Grand Slam titles in 2017. This places him at a major advantage in terms of taking part in young and upcoming tennis tournaments around the world, while he also retains the big-name charm.

Mexican Open is all set to be one of the major tournaments for tennis in this part of the world after having been founded in 1993. It has come along with since then. Yet, Federer has a handful of tournaments on his hands for 2018. One of those names happens to be the Dubai Tennis Championships, which is scheduled to take place in February. Incidentally, this is also the time when the Mexican championship is held. This makes it difficult for Federer to be both tournaments at the same time.
The Dubai Tennis Championships has been an integral part of the Roger Federer tennis calendar since the event began in 2002. In order to appease the organisers at Mexican Open, Federer is reportedly set to take part in an exhibition match. While it may not be on the same planet as the international competitive event, it will at least help bring Federer to Mexican soil.
