ROGER FEDERER VS ALBERT RAMOS-VINOLAS PREVIEW
Roger Federer will be aiming to get his season back on track after struggling with a back injury at the US Open last month.
In his opening match in Shanghai, he faces a unique situation with Ramos-Vinolas being one of the few players he doesn’t have a winning record over.
He said: “I love being here. It is a great event with a lot of history now for me. It’s a fast court. I think it suits my game well too.
“Of course, when it is fast you better be careful and sharp, especially in best of three.
“The weather has been good, practise been going well. I’ve been busy, arrived here early and I’m ready to go.”
