Federer announced in January he wanted to play on the clay this year after avoiding the surface in the past two seasons.

And the Swiss will play his first match of the clay campaign at next month’s Madrid Masters.

That is likely to be his sole warm-up tournament ahead of appearing at the French Open.

Federer begun his training on the clay on Monday and appeared in good spirits as he got his socks dirty.
