Roger Federer practicing in Paris, Roland Garros 2010

Roger Federer is back in Paris! The reigning French Open champion and world No.1 had a full day's practice on Wednesday, having a hit-out on Philippe Chatrier court followed by another one away from prying eyes on No.2 court. The Swiss maestro enjoyed a few rallies with Croat Ivan Ljubicic, who is back to full fitness. 2008 women's winner Ana Ivanovic was also practising in the stadium on Wednesday, as was fellow Serb Novak Djokovic. The Williams sisters were also out on the courts, but Venus had to cut short her early-morning session to have the base of her back massaged. Father Richard was in attendance and had that trademark wry smile of his, which would seem to suggest that there was nothing to concern the elder of his two tennis-playing daughters in terms of fitness.

Having fun in practice:
