After taking a week off for rest, Roger Federer began his Wimbledon training program. The Swiss announced on his Facebook page that he had his first hit on the grass this tennis season.
“Today I had a nice & easy hit on the grass..first of the year….loved it!” Federer posted yesterday. The note was accompanied by a picture of Federer which could have been taken 50 years ago!
Federer controversially withdrew from the Halle tournament the day after losing to Rafael Nadal in a four-set French Open final.
Federer has six career titles at Wimbledon, just one short of Pete Sampras’s Open Era record of seven.
Last year, Federer was shocked by Tomas Berdych in the quarterfinals for just his second loss at Wimbledon since 2002.
