Roger Federer’s parents, father Robert and mother Lynette, are in Shanghai with the Swiss player for this week’s event.

Federer has revealed that his father asked him to come back to Shanghai.

“They’re having a good time”, said Federer. “They are sightseeing. So this was the first time my dad has seen the centre court and the site. Very impressed, very excited. And I’m happy that they’re here. They are also going to travel with me to Tokyo next Monday.

“They have never been to Japan, my parents. That should also be an exciting trip. And they have just came from Singapore where my sister was, so they are on an Asia tour. They are having a good time”.
