Federer rebounds after defeat at Wimbledon

HAMBURG, Germany - Roger Federer rallied to beat Daniel Brands, 3-6, 6-3, 6-2 on Wednesday at the German Tennis Championships in his first match since his second-round loss at Wimbledon last month.

Using a bigger racket for the first time, Federer served three aces in the opening game but still lost his serve and ultimately the set to the German. The former No. 1 broke once in the second set and twice in the decider to reach the third round.

The 17-time major champion is a four-time winner in Hamburg, the city where he won his first title in 2002 to break into the top 10.

After losing at Wimbledon to Sergiy Stakhovsky - who failed to qualify for the main draw in Hamburg - Federer dropped to No. 5 in the rankings, the first time in a decade that he’s been that low.
