Roger Federer has won the Gerry Weber Open for the seventh time today.
He had five aces in his win over Alejandro Falla. Federer won 7-6 (2), 7-6 (3), and saved three of the five break points in the final match in Halle, Germany.
“I’ve left a little bit of my heart here,” Federer said after his ninth Halle final. “I’m very pleased now to go to Wimbledon.”
This was Fed’s 14th title on grass, as he gets ready for the approaching Wimbledon tournament. It is also his 79th championship overall.
The 32-year-old is 46-5 in 12 appearances at this tournament since making his debut 14 years ago. He has also won all seven meetings against Falla in his career.
“He’s the king of kings of tiebreaks,” said Falla, who defeated 2011 champion Philipp Kohlschreiber in the semifinals. “Overall I played very well throughout the whole week and I want to keep it up.”
