Former world #1 Roger Federer had little trouble defeating German 'giant killer' Daniel Brands 3-6, 6-3, 6-2, in the first round of the German Tennis Championships 2013, an ATP 500 event, currently underway in Hamburg.

This was the first match for Federer, after the Swiss opted for a larger 98-square inch racquet. In the post-match presentation, Federer was asked about the performance of the new racquet.

“I’m pleased how it’s playing. I kind of knew it from practice, so it wasn’t like just jumping into the water, but I’m very happy that under match conditions I was feeling comfortable with it. I’m satisfied.

“I’ve been very close on numerous occasions to change racquets in a bigger way. But then very often, time was the issue. Maybe also just the records of Grand Slams - I was always keeping on playing quarters and semis - so then it was also a bit more difficult to change it because of the time.

“This time around, all of a sudden I just had the extra 10 days, two weeks I was looking for, and I really was very serious about it. Wilson flew to Switzerland and we went through the whole process and I was very happy how things went over there,” he added.

Federer also didn't refrain from the fact, that the decision of switching the racquet by him, was made after his second-round loss to Sergiy Stakhovsky at the Wimbledon, earlier this year.

The top-seed next plays qualifier Jan Hajek on Thursday.
