Happy Birthday to Roger Federer who turns 32 on Thursday (August 8). The Swiss who’s been battling a chronic back injury which forced him out of Montreal is already in Cincinnati where he’s been practicing.
The defending champion was on court Wednesday with 20-year-old American Denis Kudla who tweeted a photo of himself with the 17-time Grand Slam champion and what appears to be Federer’s larger, black colored racquet.

In search of a sixth title, Federer will play his first match in Cincinnati on either Tuesday or Wednesday. It’s one of three tournaments Federer will play in North America all year after Indian Wells and the upcoming US Open.
As a 31-year-old the Swiss won just two titles in Cincinnati and Halle, and didn’t make a Grand Slam final. Let’s see if 32 can be a better year!
