When I have played well at Halle I have usually played well at Wimbledon
“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.”
Federer added: “It is great to have won seven times here. It is very special and I hope to come back here next year, when it is a 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.”
