Player To Watch: Roger Federer
FedererDefending champion and World No. 3 Roger Federer eyes his 18th major title. If he's victorious, Federer will become only the second player to win the same Grand Slam eight times in the Open Era, following Nadal's history-making triumph at Roland Garros. Since his first Wimbledon title in 2003, the seven-time champion has won at least one major every year except in 2011. Earlier this month, the Swiss right-hander won his first tournament of the season at the Gerry Weber Open in Halle (d. Youzhny). Federer has 13 titles and a 121-17 record on grass, making him the most successful active player on the surface. The 31 year-old holds a 5-0 FedEx ATP Head2Head lead over his first-round opponent, Romania's Victor Hanescu.
