Roger Federer is hoping to maintain his good form on grass at Wimbledon after winning his seventh Halle title.

The Swiss, who will be aiming for an eighth title at SW19 this month, sealed a 7-6(2) 7-6(3) victory against Colombia’s Alejandro Falla in Sunday’s final in Germany.

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.”
