Federer to face Zverev in his 11th Halle final

25 Juin, 2017, 14:42 | Author: Marie-Claire Cellier

Top seed Roger Federer will square off No. 4 seed Alexander Zverev Sunday in the final of Gerry Weber Open in Halle.

The Swiss star, who is preparing for a tilt at Wimbledon after deciding not to contest the French Open, struggled at times and lost a service game in each set, but still managed to claim victory in 85 minutes in Germany.

Eighteen-time Grand Slam victor Federer lost to 39-year-old Tommy Haas at the Stuttgart Open last week, his first match in two months, but is yet to drop a set as he bids for a ninth title at Halle. Roger Federer vs Alexander Zverev live streaming, Halle Open final live streaming and tennis live streaming info follows.

Federer, who won an 18th major at January's Australian Open, skipped the entire clay court season to preserve his powers for the grass campaign. The Swiss then fended off set points at 5-6 before closing out the match in a breaker.

Fourth seed Zverev, who beat Federer in the semi-finals previous year before losing to Florian Mayer in the final, won 4-6 6-4 6-3 against France's Gasquet.

For the 35-year-old it will be his 11th Halle grass court tournament final.

You could make a case for either side, but I'm giving the edge to Federer, as he's just too consistent and still pounces on any mistakes his opponent makes.

Federer also will go for his ninth title in the German city, which would mark the first time he has won a tournament as many times.

"Everything has been geared toward that for the past 12 months and I'm happy with how I feel at the moment", said Federer, who will be going for his 92nd career title in what will be his 140th final. He improved his all-time record at the tournament to 58-6 and is 23-2 on the season. Zverev has played six sets hi last two matches and has shown consistently this tournament he's capable of taking his game to another level when needed.
