Eyeing a 17th career Grand Slam, second at Roland Garros, Roger Federer was on the practice courts yesterday at the French Open in Paris.
“I am excited to be in Paris for Roland Garros. I just finished my hit and am walking past the wall with all the players signatures who have played on center court,” he posted on Facebook.
In an abbreviated clay court lead-up, Federer won the Madrid title and was a semifinalist at Rome last weekend. When Federer last won Madrid in 2009 he also won the French Open a month later.
Last year Federer lost in the French Open finals to Rafael Nadal.
The tournament is set to begin on Sunday. The draw will be made Friday. Seeded third, Federer will either be projected to meet Novak Djokovic or Rafael Nadal in the semifinals.
