Lu to face top seed Roger Federer on Centre Court today

AN UNENVIABLE TASK: Taiwan’s Lu Yen-hsun starts up against the five-time Wimbledon champion, a player who has collected a total of 14 Grand Slam titles

By Tony Phillips  /  STAFF REPORTER

Lu will be making his Centre Court debut today, but it will be his sixth Wimbledon where his best performances remain runs to the second round in 2004 and 2005.

These days he works with Dirk Hordoff, the coach of German veteran Rainer Schuettler, who was a semi-finalist last year.

“Like most Asian players, he is a very hard worker,” Hordoff said. “He gets his confidence by working hard. While he is always very fair to other people, he is very self critical.”
