Date and time of Roger Federer's first match in two months and a half have been revealed. At the Mercedes Cup in Stuttgart, on Wednesday at 3:00 PM the Swiss player will face the German Mischa Zverev, who defeated another veteran, Mikhail Youzhny, in his first match.
Federer leads head to head meetings 5-0, he never lost a set to Zverev and it will be their fourth match on grass. Last year Federer defeated Mischa both in Halle and Wimbledon. This week so far in Stuttgart it rained a lot, hopefully the weather, as admitted by Federer, will be better in the next days.
Before Federer, in the late morning Milos Raonic will play against Mirza Basic in his first match since Madrid. Lucas Pouille will face the local wild card player Rudolf Molleker.
