  • Roger Federer Reaches Last Eight in Halle

From the start Federer piled on the pressure to establish a 4-0 lead meanwhile local hero Zverev was unable to gain a foothold into the first set.

Roger Federer reflected on a "difficult year" after beating Alexander Zverev to win a ninth Halle title as he provided the flawless platform to build upon for Wimbledon.

Roger Federer says clinching the fourth seed at Wimbledon was not an extra motivation at the Gerry Weber Open. In order to prepare for Wimbledon, he even skipped the claycourt season and in Halle didn't drop a single set.

The 35-year-old lured Khachanov to the net on several occasions, including at 4-4 in the second set and the Russian dumped a forehand volley into the net to give Federer two break points. Federer waltzed to a 6-1, 6-3 victory in just 53 minutes.

Federer - who lost to Tommy Haas at the Stuttgart Open last week as he returned to action following a two-month break - coasted through the opening set.

"It was a very good week for me again making the finals here".

His hard fought three set win means Zverev now goes on to face Roger Federer in a rematch of last year's semi-final, which the German won. Federer served great, placing the first serves nicely, and he played against only 1 break point. "I'm still just very happy how I was able to close it out in the tiebreaker", said Federer, who first reached the Halle final in 2003, when his opponent on Sunday was just 6". The match was the quickest final in the history of the Halle Open. He also beat Federer in the semi-final of this very tournament just past year.

Petra Kvitova, the two-time Wimbledon champion who is making a courageous comeback from injury, will face unseeded giant-killer Ashleigh Barty in the final of the Birmingham grass court tournament.

"It's great to get off to a good start and then remind yourself that you've been playing good tennis all week".

'I'm not sure if I am going to win this tournament again so I want to enjoy it as much as I can'.
