Roger Federer made a triumphant return to the grass courts after beating Joao Sousa at the Gerry Weber Open in Germany.

The world no. 2 has reached the last eight of the tournament after seeing off the Portuguese player 6-7, (8-10), 6-4, 6-2.

The Swiss has been victor in Germany six times in the past and he is hoping that this year he will be able to nab his seventh ahead of the Wimbledon Championships later this month.

This was Federer’s first match since he lost to Ernests Gulbis in the French Open fourth round earlier this month. He will face Taiwan’s Lu Yen-hsun in the next round.

The victory will no doubt have come as a relief to the Swiss, whose surprising defeat to Gulbis sparked much speculation about whether he was going to hang up the racket anytime soon.

However, this win will no doubt reinstate the fact that Federer is not ready to retire just yet. 

Whereas Federer safely advanced in Germany, current world no. 1 Rafael Nadal crashed out of the competition at the hands of Dustin Brown.
