World no. 5 Federer voluntarily sat out the clay-court season this year to protect his 35-year-old body, leaving the stage free for Rafael Nadal to dominate after Federer took a decisive upper hand in their ongoing rivalry in the early months of the year, beating Nadal at the Australian Open, at Indian Wells and Miami. All three were tournaments Federer won as he made a triumphant return from his six-month absence following last year’s Wimbledon semifinals, when the Swiss star decided his knee surgery in February merited a longer break from competition. Many felt it was the end of his career, at least when it came to peak performance, but Federer’s superb performances on his return, when he not only looked rejuvenated physically but played as if he was revitalized technically and tactically, gave the lie to that prediction.

‘I was terribly surprised to win the Australian Open and to back it up and win the sunshine double in Indian Wells and Miami was a complete surprise to me,’ Federer said in Stuttgart. ‘I think Rafa winning the French Open is less of a surprise because he’d done it nine times before… I was hoping he was going to dominate the clay-court season like the olden days.
