There is no doubt that Roger Federer is the best grass court player ever since he has won the most number of titles in the open era. With winning the last year’s All England Championship, Federer went past his idol Pete Sampras who has seven Wimbledon titles. The ‘King of grass’ took a break from the clay court season for the straight second year and came roaring back by winning the Stuttgart Open. Federer is looking confident and comfortable on the grass and is ready to retain his title and make it nine this year.
The 17 time -grand slam champion Rafael Nadal reclaimed the world No 1 ranking from old rival Roger Federer after the champion lost the final at Halle. The Spaniard hasn’t won at the All England Club since 2011. Since reaching the final in five consecutive Wimbledon appearances from 2006-11, hasn’t been past the fourth round. The two-time Wimbledon champion has decided to play an exhibition event at the Hurlingham Club to tune up to Wimbledon.
