Roger Federer skipped the French Open due to a back problem and is working towards being fit for Wimbledon which starts on June 27.  He began his bid for a ninth Gerry Weber Open title with a 6-4, 7-6(3) first round win over German wildcard Jan-Lennard Struff on Wednesday.The Swiss top seed, still without a title during an injury-hampered 2016 season, kept his cool during a contest which featured only one break of serve. 

Federer, who missed the French Open due to a back problem, fired 15 aces en route to setting up a last 16 encounter with Tunisia’s Malek Jaziri. Second seed Kei Nishikori’s title bid at the Wimbledon warm-up tournament ended in the second round after he pulled out with a rib injury before his second round match against Germany’s Florian Mayer. “I’m very sad to not be able to go on playing,” Japan’s Nishikori, who needed treatment during his first-round win against Lucas Pouille, told the Halle tournament’s official website.
Nishikori said he was confident the injury would improve before the start of Wimbledon on June 27.
