Roger Federer has confirmed his arrival in Italy via Twitter to the delight of his fans.
The 17-time Major winner had withdrawn from the Madrid Masters to spend time with his family following the birth of twin sons Lenny and Leo.
His agent Tony Godsick previously said the former world No. 1 would make a last minute decision to play the Internazionali BNL d’Italia. Following Federer’s arrival in Italy, this now looks almost certain. His scheduled opening match is a second round clash with Jeremy Chardy.
