Earlier today Roger Federer arrived in China for the 2013 Shanghai Masters. The Swiss is playing his first event since a disappointing fourth round loss at the US Open to Tommy Robredo.
Federer is currently ranked No. 6 but is 7th in the 2013 standings. With Andy Murray likely out due to back surgery there’s an excellent chance Roger still qualifies for the London Finals.
The 32-year-old Federer reached the semifinals in Shanghai last year. He was a runner-up in 2010. Upon arriving in Shanghai he was greeted at the airport by fans, media and tournament director Michael Luevano.
Federer, who is also playing doubles at the tournament with China’s No.1 ranked player Zhang Ze, will be joined by Novak Djokovic and Rafael Nadal among others when the event begins on Sunday.
