Let's have a look at the draw. The Swiss would also be looking to improve his confidence before the Championships at Wimbledon next month.
Karen Khachanov, who has been in and out of form in recent times, is seeded 3rd in the tournament and he will face Damir Dzhumur in the first round.
Will the Swiss Maestro regain his title, or will there be a new and a young champion just like we had last year? Federer could face the winner of the battle between two Frenchmen Benoit Paire and Jo-Wilfried Tsonga for a place in the quarter-finals.
In the first round, the Swiss will be facing the John Millman, whom he lost to in the fourth round of the US Open last year.
If all goes to plan for the Swiss Maestro, he might possibly face yet another stiff challenge in the form of Roberto Bautista Agut, who would have to battle past Taylor Fritz and Richard Gasquet to reach the quarters.
Alexander Zverev could face his compatriot Philipp Kohlschreiber in the second round and possibly Goffin in the quarters. Bottom half While the top half seems to be filled with some experienced campaigners, it's a different story in the bottom half where there are less accomplished players.
