Roger Federer became the first man in the ATP Open Era to record 50 match wins at 3 ATP Tour events (Halle, Basel, Indian Wells) as he overcame a dogged serving resistance from Dr. Ivo Karlovic 7-6 (3), 7-6(4) in an hour and 28 minutes to reach his 10th successive final at Gery Webber Open.

Overall, Halle is now the 7th event where in Roger Federer has won 50 or more matches.

 

 

 

 

As expected there were no break of serves in both the sets. In the first set, Karlovic had a couple of deuce on Federer's service, but Federer was up to the task & it was tie-breaker time.

 

 

Before the start of this match, Federer had won 13 of the 16 tie-breakers.

 

 

 

Federer comfortably won the tie-breaker 7-3. Here are the first set stats -----

The second set was no different, just that Karlovic had one break point. Karlovic during the course of the 2nd set (his 20th ace of the match) served his 114th ace of the tournament.

 

With this, Karlovic bettered his own record of 113 aces that he set in February 2007 at San Jose.

 

How ever, the most aces record in a best of three setter tournament still lies with John Isner, he set that record in 2007 Washington (144 aces).

 

 

Most aces in a best of 3 setter tournament :

 

 

1) John Isner - 2007 Washinton 144 aces

 

2) Ivo Karlovic - 2015 Halle 114 aces

 

 3) Ivo Karlovic - 2007 San Jose 113 aces

 

 

Most aces in a best of 5 setter tournament (major/ grand slam tournament) :

 

1) Goran Ivanisevic - 2001 Wimbledon : 212 aces

 

 2) Goran Ivanisevic - 1992 Wimbledon : 202 aces

 

 3) Goran Ivanisevic - 1998 Wimbledon : 184 aces

 

 4) Mark Philippoussis - 2003 Wimbledon : 178 aces

 

 5) Goran Ivanisevic - 1994 Wimbledon :  167 aces

 

 6) Goran Ivanisevic -1995 Wimbledon : 166 aces

 

 7) Pete Sampras - 2002 US Open : 144 aces

 

 

Federer won the tie-breaker 7-4 & with this reached his 10th final at Halle, overall his 130th singles final.

 

 

Here are the overall match stats -----

Federer will play Andreas Seppi tomorrow in the final, Seppi reached the final after Nishikori retired due to calf injury after just 5 games..

 

 

 

Tomorrow's final will be Federer's 20th final on grass court. Federer is 7-2 at Wimbledon, 7-2 at Halle & 0-1 at 2012 London Olympics.

Talk about a "David and Goliath" contest!!

I must admit I find matches which are largely down to a serving contest a bit boring as its aces or missed returns, a lot of walking from one side of the court to the other and a distinct lack of exciting rallies, although there were a few notable exceptions in this match .... as Roger's Hot shot, featured in a post above, clearly shows.

He certainly had his work cut out to figure a way past the mighty serve of Ivo Karlovic and with no breaks of serve in this match it did lead to two rather anxious tie breaks. Thrilled to see Roger seal this victory in straight sets, it was a close thing!

Here are a few pics
