If you’re a Roger Federer fan, then we’ve got a great news for you. At 34, the Swiss ace has shown no signs of slowing down, which seems to have bolstered his mindset to extend his on-court longevity, as he’s signed a two-year contract with the Mercedes Cup in Stuttgart, implying that he would go on at least until 2017.

Notably, the next year’s tournament here will be Federer’s first appearance in Stuttgart since the erstwhile Stuttgart Masters in 2001, and he didn’t shy away from agreeing that the event’s atmosphere exert a pull on him and that he always wanted to be a part of it.

“I watched the first edition (last June) on television, it had a great atmosphere,” Federer told the tournament’s official website. “I’ve always wanted to play Stuttgart, but it was always the wrong time after Wimbledon. Now that they’ve moved dates, the chance to play the Mercedes Cup is very exciting – I can’t wait.”

The tournament is scheduled to be held from June 4-12, 2016 on the grass courts, serving as one of the tune-up events for the prestigious Wimbledon Championships.
