Tennis - 17 time grand slam champion Roger Federer will make his summer hardcourt debut at the Western & Southern Open in Cincinnati in the coming week where he is the defending champion and a five time champion.

Federer did not play in the Rogers Cup in Montreal this week due to a back injury but says he has now recovered and is looking forward to coming back to the tour.

“Usually I play well before Slams and I’m happy here. I always feel very welcome. It’s a nice tournament. The fans love it here. They flock in from many cities around Cincinnati and you really feel they are here for the tennis, which is fun for us players.”

“I went on a short break with my family, came back and trained really hard. Right after Wimbledon I was thinking, what else can I do? Is it more training? Is it more time off? How can I use those extra 10-12 days? That’s why I added Gstaad and Hamburg to my calendar and then realized I had more time to test racquets, so I did that. Once I went to Hamburg I was feeling great and really eager to play again. Then my back got bad. I carried that over to Gstaad and I was just happy to be playing there. It’s been a difficult past couple of weeks and not the tournament weeks I was hoping for.”

“Right now I need to make sure that I actually enjoy my time on the court and don’t think about a million things and sort of simplify it. The priority is tennis. That’s what it is and that’s what it should be.”
