Roger Federer needed no reintroduction to Roland Garros, but the Swiss superstar is happy to fly under the radar.

Federer, who turns 38 in August, is challenging for the French Open title once again after giving the clay season a miss for the past three years.

The change to his schedule has seen the all-time great pick up three more Grand Slam titles and avoid the debilitating injuries that threatened to end his career in 2016.

He has elected however to return this year and hit the ground running by dispatching Italian Lorenzo Sonego 6-2 6-4 6-4 in just an hour and 41 minutes in his first-round clash on Sunday.


With long-time rivals Rafa Nadal and Novak Djokovic duelling in the Italian Open last week – as Federer withdrew from the quarter-finals – the world No.3 is for once not up among the outright favourites to win the tournament.








Watch why Federer believes this is a good thing above.
