Federer and Haas: Street tennis to kick off MercedesCup

Stuttgart,

The two superstars kicked off the MercedesCup with a surprise street exhibition in Stuttgart.

The 18-time Grand Slam champion already arrived on Sunday in Stuttgart and immediately held a public practice with best buddy Tommy Haas on the premises of the MercedesCup. But that wasn’t enough for the two of them as they hit Stuttgart city centre playing an improvised game of tennis on the Schlossplatz.

Said Federer after the exhibition: “I’ve played tennis at a lot of different locations all over the world, also together with Tommy. It was very special to kick off the MercedesCup here in the center of Stuttgart.” Haas had similar things to say: “It’s always special to play such exhibitions with Roger.”

After a bye in the first round, Federer will make his first official appearance at Stuttgart’s Weissenhof on Wednesday. And who’s the opponent? Of course it’s Tommy Haas, who won his first round match on Tuesday against Pierre-Hugues Herbert from France 6-3, 4-6, 7-5. Federer feels in great shape and “that’s of the utmost importance if I want to go far in this tournament.”
