a victory over John Millman considering it as a mini revenge for the US Open
defeat last year, The Swiss played a great match especially after the switching
from Clay season to the Grass without a long break between the two seasons.
Roger Federer revealed how happy He’s to win his first round without any nervous
and the way He managed to play his first match in the grass and how important it is,
besides that, He noticed that the court is faster and that would help him more to play.
“I’m very happy that I won my first round,”
“The last few years I’ve also always played Stuttgart before so this is my first match back on the grass.”
“My first round used to be always in Halle back in the day. I always think any way
you get through is a good way because the next match will always feel different, better and all that stuff.”
“Plus I think with the threat of John, who beat me at the US Open, I knew it was going to be tough.”
“Thankfully I wasn’t too nervous. I had a clear plan, I knew that it was going to be
more difficult for him to dominate the baseline. I also had a heat issue [at the US Open] to be quite fair.”
“Conditions are faster here so I’m able to control the tempo of the match a little bit more so I’m very happy there.
“Played a good breaker, broke at the end [of the second set], saved breakpoints”
so I was able to serve it home myself at the end, that was nice.” Federer said
“So there was definitely some good moments there. From the baseline and all that stuff,”
” It’s only going to get better from here on so I’m confident there.” Roger added
