Roger Federer will play at the Rogers Cup in Montreal for the first time since 2011 as he returns to the court after his Wimbledon success.

World number three Roger Federer, who captured his record 19th Grand Slam singles crown last month at Wimbledon, said on Tuesday he will play in next week’s ATP event at Montreal.



In preparation for the U.S. Open, Federer will head to Montreal eyeing his third crown at the ATP 1000 event.

Federer, who holds a 31-2 win-loss record this year, turns 36 on Tuesday – a day after the tournament begins.

The Canadian hardcourt event alternates between Montreal and Toronto with a WTA event every year.

“I’m happy to be coming back to Montreal, as I have not had the chance to play there for many years,” Federer said. “This 2017 season has been very exciting and I am really looking forward to being back on the court.”

Federer captured the Australian Open for the fifth time in his career, then won his eighth Wimbledon title. Federer also took titles at Indian Wells, Miami and Halle.

Federer seeks his third crown in the Canadian event but the first in Montreal after 2004 and 2006 triumphs in Toronto.
