Federer outplays Zverev to win ninth Halle crown


Eight-time champion Roger Federer and Alexander Zverev clash in a battle of generations on Sunday, June 25 (Monday in Manila time) in the final of the Halle tournament with the Swiss superstar looking to make a mockery of their 15-year age gap.

Zverev is regarded as one of the world's most promising young players and climbed into the top 10 earlier this year after winning three tour titles.

"I as very calm out there, even in hard moments".

The 18-times grand slam champion, who skipped the claycourt season to prepare for grass after winning the Australian Open and titles in Indian Wells and Miami, is in ominous form and won in Halle without dropping a single set all week.

Federer gave himself a rest during the clay-court season after his triumph in Melbourne and did not afford the world number 12 even the slightest opportunity to challenge for victory. "It could be somewhat similar to how I played today".

Richard Gasquet defeated Robin Haase 6-1, 3-6, 6-1 while Karen Khachanov got past Andrey Rublev with a 7-6 (8), 4-6, 6-3 in other quarterfinal matches.

While speaking about his opponent Federer said, "It was all a little uncertain because I don't know him that well". So credits to him, he played an unbelievable match. In the victory, Federer won 71 percent of his first serve points and 58 percent of his second serve points.

The big-serving 35-year-old, ranked 32nd in the world, had lost on a tiebreak in his only previous final appearance in 2014, blowing a match point on the way, and he said: "I can not believe I have finally won this tournament". Khachanov then missed two set points before Federer took it to the tiebreaker.

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.

He will now play the victor of the other semi-final between Frenchman Richard Gasquet and local favourite Alexander Zverev.
