Roger Federer became the 3rd man in the ATP Open Era to win a tournament 8 times as he overcame a stiff resistance from Andreas Seppi 7-6 (1), 6-4 in 1 hour & 42 minutes to win the Gerry Weber Open for a record 8th time.

Roger Federer is now the 3rd guy in the ATP Open Era (after Rafa Nadal - 9 Roland Garros, 8 Monte Carlo & Barcelona & Guillermo Vilas - 8 Buenos Aires titles) to win a single tournament 8 or more times.

1st Set

 

Seppi started from where he left in that Australian Open 3rd round match. He was very agressive and even had 2 set-points in the 10th game but the Swiss maestro saved those with two aces. Seppi's service too was top notch and he didn't face a single break point in the entire 1st set.

 

Federer's 1st service came to his rescue when ever he was in slight trouble. Federer was flaw-less once again in the tie-breaker. He won the Tie-breaker 7-1. This was his 6th successful at this year's Gerry Weber Open.

 

 

Overall, this was Federer's 26th successful tie-breaker (out of 35 Tie-Breaker played) since he turned 33 on August 8th, 2014.

 

 

 

& this was his 38th successful tie-breaker out of the total of 64 TB's that he has played in 130 finals so far.

 

 

 

Here are the first set stats ----

2nd Set

 

 

 

 

 

As these stats clearly show you, Federer wins almost 87% of the finals after winning the 1st set. Federer played a much better 2nd set. Seppi though was very competitive for the first 7 games. He saved three break points in the 8th game. But, relentless pressure from Federer & the pressure of serving to stay in the match was too much as Federer ended the match with an overhead smash to clinch his 8th title at Halle, 86th career singles title.

This will be the 4th time in Roger Federer's career when he's heading to Wimbledon (previous 3: 2003, 2004 & 2005) with at least one title win on all three surfaces. (Clay, Hard and Grass court).

 

 

 

2015 is now the 12th year in the last 13 years (with the exception of 2013), where in Roger Federer has won 4 or more titles

A fitting end to an encouraging week on the grass for Roger. This photo says it all as far as I am concerned :)
