    Federer headlines Wednesday play in Shanghai World No. 1 Roger Federer will make his 2012 Masters 1000 Shanghai debut, set to face qualifier Yen-Hsun Lu late Wednesday. The top seed looks to win his 62nd match of the season.

    World No. 1 Roger Federer leads world No. 62 Yen-Hsun Lu 1-0 in the head-to-head series, having won their only previous meeting at the 2009 Wimbledon Championships. Wednesday signals their first meeting on a hard court.

    Federer returns to competition following a successful effort for home nation Switzerland in Davis Cup. The 31-year-old veteran will be making his second appearance at the Masters 1000 Shanghai, where he finished runner-up to reigning US Open champion Andy Murray in 2010.

    Lu began the tournament with a straight-set upending of Chinese wildcard Ze Zhang. The 29-year-old passed through the 54-minute opener unbroken, 6-0, 6-2. Lu is seeking his 13th tour-level victory of the season.

    Prediction: Federer in straight sets.
