Like at Wimbledon, Roger Federer decided to start his US Open tuneup very early, so he was seen training at Flushing Meadows already yeasterday, five days before the start of the last Major event of the year.
Along with him, Severin Lüthi and Stefan Edberg, who is also already in New York!
Again, Team Fedberg had the first hitting session with Australian Lleyton Hewitt, who will play his last Grand Slam tournament next year at the Australian Open, before stepping away from the Tour. Federer also practiced with David Goffin on Friday and Stan Wawrinka on Saturday.
Here are some pictures of Federer's training sessions and of Stefan and Roger having a chillout walk around New York last Wednesday.
Below, you can also watch a couple of hd videos of the entire practice with Hewitt, under Stefan's eyes, that were filmed live and posted on Youtube by user Hugo Legend. (mc)
