FEDERER TAKES HALLE TITLE FOR SEVENTH TIME

0

HALLE WESTFALEN, Allemagne: Switzerland’s Roger Federer won the Halle grasscourt tournament for the seventh time on Sunday (Monday in Manila) with a 7-6 (7/2), 7-6 (7/3) victory over Colombia’s Alejandro Falla. Federer, 32, the defending champion and world number four, was too powerful for the world number 69 as he claimed his second success of the season after Dubai in February. It was Federer’s 79th career title—and 14th on grass—and provided the Swiss with a timely boost ahead of his bid for a record eighth Wimbledon crown in a weeks’ time.
