Roger Federer a four time champion at Halle started his 2013 Grass Court season with a comfortable 6-3 6-3 second round victory over Germany's Cedrik-Marcel Stebe at Gerry Weber Open, Halle.

Roger Federer today was back wearing his trademark bandana. It needs to be stated that during his doubles match with Tommy Haas, he was spotted without a bandana, for the first time in almost a decade.

 

 

1st set


 

Federer broke Stebe's service in the very first game and that pretty much set the tone for the match.


The Swiss Maestro got the double break after the German netted an easy forehand in the 5th game to hand over a 4-1 lead to the 17 slam champion.

How ever, Federer got broken while serving for the set at 5-2.

But, Federer wrapped up the first set 6-3 in 33 minutes when Stebe slammed his cross-court backhand into the net to get broken for the third time in the set.



Here are the first set stats

2nd Set

 

The second set was more or less the same story, as Federer broke the German's serve to get to a 2-0 lead and that pretty much ended the German's hope of a come-back.

The German didn't have the consistency or the fire-power to test Federer's game which wasn't in top form as you will notice from the plethora of unforced errors.

The next 6 games went on service, Federer double faulted on his first match point & then hit a forehand long to give the German a break point, but didn't repeat the same mistake of the first set as he served out the match 6-3, 6-3 in 62 minutes.

 

 

Here are the overall match stats

 

 

 

 

              statsssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssss.

 

Federer now faces another German ranked #156 Mischa Zverev in the Round of 8 on Friday after the German defeated Mirza Basic 7-6(5) 6-3 (who had knocked out Jerzy Janowicz in the first round).

Roger Federer's on court interview (in German) ---------

 

 

 

 

 

Translation (via Thierry H) of today's on court interview -------

 

 

 

"It's never easy to play the first few matches on grass so I'm always happy when I come through the first rounds because otherwise Wimbledon would be just around the corner. It takes away a bit pressure. 
 
 
Cedric had already played a match, it could have been an advantage and that's why I knew about the danger, I had practised a lot with him and he can play very well but my slice worked well against him today so I'm very satisfied in the end.
 
It's very relaxing here, everyone feels it here, not just the players but also the fans, everyone is in a good mood. Of course it's even better when the weather is good which has been the case today and that's why I like to take 15 minutes for the fans, the day has 24 hours so 15 minutes are not a lot, I enjoy doing it.
I'm not here every year and some of the people come from afar and hope to maybe not just watch me play but also to discuss a bit or to ... touch me (crowd going crazy) or to talk to me and I take part in that, that's no problem."
 
"Do your girls say something like your backhand down the line was not good today?"
 
"Today they would probably rather say that the serve was not so good. They don't ask whether I won or lost, not yet at least, it's not far away. But I think they like to come to the practice or to the matches.
 
 
There's a lot to do here, here in Halle. There are different things to do in the big cities but here where it's calm you can go to the forest or go swimming, there's a lot to do and they have fun being away from the big cities where there are lots of cars and it's very dangerous. 
 
 
It's very pleasant here and we enjoy it as a family.
 
I'm looking forward to playing against Zverev, he plays classic grass tennis, still goes to the net. I'm happy there are still a few of these players. So the match will definitely a bit different than today's match against Stebe who doesn't like to come to the net so I'm looking forward to that.
 
 
I played against Mischa once in Rome a long time ago, he played very well there, he is talented, you have to be careful there but I think I have 1 day break so I can still practise a bit and prepare well for the match."

 Press Conference with Roger Federer after the match against Cedrik-Marcel Stebe...

 

 Also Federer was asked about his trademark headband, that he was not wearing it in doubles match.

 

 

 

Federer joked about the appearance of former Austrian left-hander Stefan Koubek alongside his wife, Mirka, in his box during the match against Stebe. Was Koubek there as a coach or a friend?

“I hope he’s just a friend and he’s not flirting with my wife,” Federer laughed. “Otherwise I’ll take care of him later on. No, he’s around and he comes to practise with me in Switzerland or Dubai. We know each other so well and he’s one of my best friends from the Tour. I guess we’re just catching up. No, I’m not working with him. He’s working with an Austrian junior.”
