Roger Federer: "Dear Fans I will be playing Rotterdam in 2013 and am very excited to be defending my title and playing in the 40th anniversary event. The tournament will be held February 11 to 17, 2013 in Ahoy Rotterdam in the Netherlands.The ABN AMRO World Tennis Tournament is one of the ‘special’ tournaments for me personally on the ATP World Tour. Hopefully I will become the first player with his name on the boarding for the third time."

Richard Krajicek on the participation of Roger Federer: "After his victory in February, Rogers return was on top of the wishlist of everyone involved in the ABN AMRO World Tennis Tournament. We are very proud that we have agreed on his participation which we can announce today. The sold-out sessions when Roger played, the atmosphere in Ahoy when he was practicing or signing autographs and all the wonderful reactions from the fans, made the last edition very special. For our upcoming anniversary, we wanted him to return to Rotterdam. With his participation the tournament already promises to be a great party."

It is striking that these were the two best attended editions. Last February Ahoy Rotterdam even welcomed a record number of 115,894 tennis fans. In 2013 the Swiss could be the first player in the forty-year history of the tournament conquering the singles title for a third time.
