Roger Federer sends MAJOR WARNING to rivals ahead of Stuttgart and Wimbledon GETTY

Roger Federer is exciting about his return to action

Federer has been on a break since crashing out of the Miami Open in March.

He is skipping the clay-court season to stay fresh for the defence of his Wimbledon title.

Federer will be back on court at the Stuttgart Open, which kicks off the grass-court season on June 11.

And the Swiss star is excited to be heading to Germany.

“Of course, my expectations are high on grass, and I’m looking forward to playing again in Stuttgart this year,” Federer said.

“The atmosphere at the TC Weissenhof is wonderful.

“You can immediately feel that there is much life in the club.

“The tournament is very well organised and spectators are there in the matches.”

Federer previously revealed his penchant for the Autobahn is one of the reasons he enjoys playing in Germany.

“It’s not far away from home,” he said last year.

“And of course, it was funny to drive once again in Germany on highways.”

Federer has attracted criticism from some former players, including 1970 French Open champion Ion Tiriac, for skipping the entire clay-court season.

But hit back: “In principle, Tiriac is right when he says that players are not allowed to chose where to play and where to not.

“But Federer is in another league. He is the best ever. He is an unbelievable tennis player.

“He did all right, and now that he has chosen to skip the clay-court season should be understood.”
