Roger Federer hopes his "good friend" Tiger Woods returns to the golf course soon. "It's been hard to watch from far away but I would love to see him back on the golf course. It is what he does best," the world's top tennis player tells Gulf News. "What's happened to him has been hard to watch over the last three months right down to when he made his apology. I am sure he's headed in a better direction now." (More Roger Federer stories.)
