This is Roger Federer's 14th title on grass (holds the record of most number of titles on grass in the open era) & overall, his 79th career title. Also, this is the first title that Federer has succeeded to defend since World Tour Finals, 2011.

The 30 year old Colombian gave Federer a tough fight. Federer got the 1st break in the 8th game, but Falla immediately broke Federer to make it 5-4. The first set went to a tie-breaker & Federer won the tie-breaker comfortably 7-2.

 

 

This was the 10th tiebreaker that Federer won in 2014.

 

 

 

2nd Set

 

 

Federer broke Falla's service in the opening game, but the Colombian got the break back in the very next game.

 

After that, there was no service breaks & the 2nd set also went in to a tie-breaker & Federer once again comfortably won the Tie breaker 7-3. This was Federer's 11th tie-breaker win of 2014, he is now 11-10 in 2014 tie-breakers.

 

 

For the first time in his career, Roger Federer won a final match in 2 tie-breakers.

What an ideal gift for Father's Day! Roger Federer lifted the trophy at Halle for the 7th time and with this victory chalked up his 79th Title on the ATP Tour!


BqLis87IMAAKLIb.jpg


The pundits hinted that a victory for Federer here was almost a done deal, add to that the his head to head with Falla was 6-0 in his favour. I must admit this made me a bit anxious, hoping that Roger would be able to keep up the momentum of crisp game play that he had achieved yesterday against Kei Nishikori.

In reality the result was anything but a foregone conclusion. In the first set Roger was struggling with his serve a bit, double faulting once, and was getting frustrated with himself for missed shots at times. When he failed to serve the set out at 5-3, tensions rose here on the sofa, and on court no doubt!

In fact both sets went to tie break. Alejandro Falla played well making Roger work hard for his victory.

But luck was on the side of Roger Federer and there was no mistake today when the winning point had been played ;)

As preparations for the presentation ceremony were under way, Myla Rose and Charlene Riva were brought to join Mirka and Severin Luthi in the players box. So sweet to see Roger waving at his family and the twins excited to see their Dad.

quotes from Falla's presser ------

 

 

Q: Before you joined Roger on the bench. What was the topic of the discussion?
FALLA: He was asking me, what I was going to play next. I told him I will drive to s’Hertogenbosch tonight and play there. He asked me who I play there and I told him I’ll play Melzer in the first round. He was telling me he’s going to Wimbledon, he’s going to get some practice. He’s just a very nice guy, he’s an amazing player, he’s an inspiration for every tennis player and not just for the tennis but for the kind of person he is.

Q: Were you nervous at the beginning considering that was one of the first finals in that atmosphere in this stadium or was it more of a motivation?
FALLA: What I see when I play Roger is how people love him when he walks on the court. It’s just amazing how the crowd makes him feel. So, you feel that a little bit but when you start warming up … Maybe the first or second time when I played him I was more nervous. But now I’m kind of used to it because we’ve played a lot of times. So, it doesn’t make me nervous.

quotes from Federer's presser ------

 

Question: Congratulations. I wanted to ask you from a kind of London point of view. Aren’t you a bit bored of winning Halle that much? When are you going to come to Queens?

 

 

FEDERER: I will not come to Queens ever as long as it is in the same week because I have a contract here for life. So, I will always come and play here. I played in Queens in ’99 actually. That one time I lost 6:3 and 6:0 and never went back (laughs). That was my Queens experience. But it’s a nice tournament as well. You can’t have it all. It’s going to be the same week in the future too because they are both moving up from a 250 to a 500 series. They are going to keep the same week. So, I guess all the players are going to split between Halle and Queens in the future as well. But clearly I’m very pleased to go to London now for Wimbledon.

 

 

 

Q: In a tournament like this close to Wimbledon are you in a close touch with Stefan Edberg? Is he watching your games? Did he give you some tips like: play more at the net?

 

 

FEDERER: Well, he was here Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday of this week and then he went back. I haven’t been really in touch with him since because I have Severin here, my coach. So, we were talking a lot how I should play. But clearly Stefan gave me a lot of input during practice and how he sees me playing. So, I’m trying to fulfil all the wishes of my coaches. I try to come up with the right playing style. And Stefan will be in Wimbledon starting in a few days and then we’ll spend three weeks together. Then, my coach will also join me later in the week but he’s gone back to Switzerland quickly. But I’m sure he was watching as much as he can.

Falla just sums up why so many love Roger today.

Indeed Roger Federer has matured like a fine wine, even Moët and Chandon, to be an experience to be savoured and deserving of respect

Federer on his winning

 

 

"I've come here to win the title, to play beautiful tennis and to have fun...Next year will be 15th tournament, that'll be amazing for the organisers and the spectators, it will be very important.
So if I have won the spectators' hearts, too, that's even more wonderful.I want to thank the fans for coming here every year, 14 years now. It's important for the organisers and of course for the players"
 
“It is great to have won seven times here, it is very special and I hope to come back here next year, where it is a [ATP World Tour] 500-series event.”
“I really enjoy winning titles. It is what I play for, to play and receive a standing ovation at the end. I am very pleased with my performance. I work hard and travel the tour to win these titles and not lose in the quarters or semi-finals. With all the success I have had in the past, I need to aim for titles. I think I deserved the title this week.
 
“In the past, when I have played well at Halle I have usually played well at Wimbledon," said Federer. "They have been two of my most successful tournaments, so I hope that this title will bring me luck again. Last year it didn’t work out, but it did many times before. So I hope it will be back to the good old days.”
 
“Falla fought back when I served for the first set and he also fought back when I had won the first game of the second set. Things could have been trickier and tougher, but overall it was a close match in quick conditions. I was able to serve and volley a little bit and I served extremely well in the tie-breakers, which was the difference at the end.

Admirable play by Roger with Nishikori followed by Falla. He deserves every win. Falla quite rightly mentions how he is loved by his fans when entering the court. Congrats.
