Hellooo everyone, it's the day you've all been waiting for; it's grass season time and that means a return to the tour for Roger Federer, who has missed the clay, and is hopefully ready to follow on from the incredible start to the season.

Roger meets his friend Tommy Haas in the second round of the ATP 250 tournament in Stuttgart. They've met 16 times before, over a period of 17 years, and Roger leads the head-to-head 13-3.

We're just waiting for the conclusion of this very tight encounter between Philipp Kohlschreiber and Steve Johnson, and then we'll be getting underway.

Annnd that's just done, with Kohlschreiber coming out on top. Hopefully Roger and Tommy will be out within the next 15 minutes!

Hopefully everyone loves grass season as much as me; nothing like some serve and volleying!

There's an official-looking man checking whether the court is slippy; it should only be a bit of sweat if so!

They're showing Roger's match point from the Australian Open on Eurosport, and I thought I wouldn't be crying today!

Here we gooooo! Players are coming onto court.

Fergus Murphy asking the players if they have any questions, I think they could do the speech themselves at this stage! But Tommy wins the toss of the coin, and he'll serve to start us off.

A shoutout to the longevity of these players; Roger is 35, and Tommy is 39 years young! I have no doubt they're both going to bring us some BEAUTIFUL tennis today.
