It was an enthralling affair this clay court season, but now it is time to turn our heads towards the grass courts. With The Championships Wimbledon 2017 looming up ahead, the players have to adjust their style of play as fast as possible, as the six tournaments leading into the grand slam, get underway this week. We take a look at some of the players and key aspects to look out for on the grass courts this season.
The Maestro’s homecoming
Roger Federer’s long break, after missing out on the entire clay court season, is coming to an end as he gears up to start his bid for a record eighth title in London. Tommy Haas and Federer, kick started the tournament in Stuttgart a few days back after they played mini tennis in the center of Stuttgart at Schlossplatz. Federer addressed the press a few days back, and said that he is well prepared and can’t wait to get onto the grass. He also congratulated Rafael Nadal on his record tenth title, and also went on to add that with the French Open title in his back, Rafa has a boost of confidence that he needed right before the start of the grass court season. Federer also made it clear that right from the start of the year his goal has been to bag another one of those pineapple trophies at Wimbledon, and that he has been training hard throughout his break during his clay court absence. He will face Tommy Haas in his first round, who is one of the eight Germans, who are vying to give Roger a stiff competition.
