Before he takes off for his meeting with Medvedev, the World Number five, Roger Federer revealed his excitement to play on the clay surface month to Tennis Channel, where he will be making a return after three years. I must say the a year ago has been unbelievable for him...

In the opening set, the fourth seed converted two of eight break points received and won 74% of first-serve points.

The second set wasn't as competitive, Federer easing home and finishing with 35 winners compared to the Serbian's 18.
