Roger Federer will return to the tour in Toronto, where he is looking to win a third Canada Masters title

Federer has been resurgent this year, with the addition of a new coach in former Slam legend Stefan Edberg, and a newer larger racquet. Almost immediately it started paying dividend with a run to the Brisbane final in the season opener, and most recently he came within a blade of grass of lifting an eighth Wimbledon title.

The off-season will give him some much needed time with new family members, twin sons Leo and Lenny before he returns to hit the two Masters 1000 series events ahead of the US Open.

First stop will be Toronto, where he will try and get in a deep run. He won in 2004 and 2006, falling in the finals in 2007 (to Novak Djokovic) and again in 2010 where he lost in two tight sets to Andy Murray.

Having skipped the Masters in 2012 and 2013 he will make his return at the prestigious event, and then will join the rest of the ATP elite as they move on to Cincinnati where he will try once more for an unprecedented sixth title in the precursor to the US Open.

There, Federer was untouchable between 2005 and 2008 before Juan Martin Del Potro broke the chain in 2009, and since then Federer has gradually fallen earlier and earlier, last year losing in the fourth round.

Federer firmly believes he still has more Slam wins left in him, so can he make one more tilt in New York?

The Rogers Cup starts on 4 August and the Cincinnati Masters on 11 August. The US Open takes place between 25 August to 8 September.
