Gstaad: Serb Janko Tipsarevic continued a luckless 2013 run as the third seed was knocked out in his opening match at the Swiss Open 6-2, 6-2 by Dutchman Robin Haase on Thursday.

The stage was set for the return of Roger Federer to the court at the high-altitude Alpine village, with the tennis icon having last played Gstaad in 2004 when he won the title.

A decade and a half ago, a pony-tailed, teenaged Federer made his start on the ATP Tour with a wild card into the event, losing in the first round to Argentine Lucas Arnold.
