Federer crushes Zverev to clinch ninth Halle title

Federer crushes Zverev to clinch ninth Halle title

Zverev is also looking to become the only player this year to win titles on hard, clay and grass courts while the Swiss is targeting his ninth title here at the Halle Open.

Federer's success was clinched with a 6-1 6-3 masterclass against Alexander Zverev on Sunday.

20-year-old Zverev, who had defeated Federer in last year's semi-final, was no match for the Swiss.

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.

Federer required just 53 minutes as he destroyed Zverev and will be much fancied to continue his superb form in 2017 when he arrives in Wimbledon as the number three seed.

"I really had to fight in defence, but maybe it's not so bad to survive like this on grass".

U.S. police finally catch bank robber dubbed 'AK47 Bandit'
A jailhouse phone call transcript showed Gathercole asked his mother to clear his Montana home of guns following his arrest . On Feb. 29, 2012, the so-called AK-47 bandit robbed the California Bank & Trust on 5455 Riverside Dr.in Chino , police said.

"I thought it was extremely close-especially that second set", Federer said at his press conference.

Federer now has 92 career titles after winning a record ninth title at the Gerry Weber Open in Halle, Germany.

"It is unbelievable how he plays with 35 years".

But he quickly fell behind in the second as Zverev, a finalist previous year, who has already won three titles in 2017, charged to a 4-2 lead and held on to take the set. "I felt good and never let up", said Federer, who dropped just nine points on his serve. It was quite quick, and usually in doubles the points are a little bit shorter.

Roger Federer is coming off a straight sets win over Karen Khachanov that took 23 games to decide. "So I'm happy to react right away and let that be forgotten and actually move on and remind myself I actually can play well on grass".

At Queen's yesterday, Spain's Feliciano Lopez saved one match point before completing a week of upsets in West London by converting his third match point to beat fourth seed Maric Cilic in a marathon final 4-6, 7-6, 7-6.
