After a first round loss last year to the retiring Tommy Haas, Roger Federer will give Stuttgart another shot, opening his grass season there in June.
“The atmosphere at TC Weissenhof is amazing. You immediately feel that this club is full of life,” Federer said. “The fans get really going during the matches. On grass, my expectations are naturally high, so, I’m looking forward to once again playing in Stuttgart.”
The 36-year-old Federer is taking the clay season off hoping to parlay it into another Wimbledon title, just as he did a year ago.
Milos Raonic, Hyeon Chung are also scheduled. Federer will then head to Halle after Stuttgart.
