Roger Federer claims record ninth Gerry Weber Open title in Halle

28 June 2017

Federer, who won the Australian Open this year, skipped the entire clay-court season to prepare for Wimbledon.

Federer's success was clinched with a 6-1 6-3 masterclass against Alexander Zverev on Sunday. Zverev created his only break chance in the opening game of the second, but ultimately was unable to show why he is regarded as one of the sport's brightest prospects.

After a disappointing start to the grass court season where Federer lost in the first round of the Stuttgart Open, he has turned this around completely.

In the lead-up to the Wimbledon, Roger Federer has warmed up with a record ninth Halle Open title.

This is going to be a fun match between these two talented players, as Zverev is growing up before our eyes and Federer is, well, Federer. "He could have been a little nicer to me", Zverev said. The 35-year-old Swiss first reached the Halle final in 2003, beating German Nicolas Kiefer for the crown.

"Everything has been geared toward that for the past 12 months and I'm happy with how I feel at the moment", Federer said before his match with Khachanov.

Gasquet, a two-time Wimbledon semi-finalist, grabbed the first set against Zverev with a break at 5-4.
