Roger Federer made a stunning start to 2018, winning his 20th Grand Slam at the Australian Open.

And he continued his great form by clinching the Rotterdam Open title before recording his 17th straight win for his best-ever start to a season in reaching the Indian Wells final.

He would lose to Juan Martin del Potro before a shock defeat to Australian qualifier Thanasi Kokkinakis at the Miami Open.

That was the last time Federer competed in a tournament having announced he would skip the clay-court season.

It means Rafael Nadal will likely have a clear run at winning an 11th French Open title starting next month.

But Federer fans are eager to find out when the Swiss star will make his competitive return.

And tennis fans won’t have to wait much longer to see Federer back in action as it will be directly after Roland Garros.

The 36-year-old announced on Facebook earlier this month that he will return at the Mercedes Cup next month, which gets underway on June 11.

“Excited to announce that I will be coming back to Germany for the Mercedes Cup in June,” Federer said.

“Looking forward to seeing you at the grass courts in Stuttgart.”

Federer also made his return at the Stuttgart Open in 2017 having missed the clay season.

But it wasn’t a happy comeback as he suffered a second round defeat to German Tommy Haas.
