Roger Federer beats Mikhail Youzhny to win Halle title (BBC Sport)

It is the first time since 2007 that Federer has come back from a set down in the semis and final to triumph at an ATP World Tour event. "I have won a lot in my career but not recently," said world number three Federer, whose last tournament win came in Cincinnati. "I was satisfied with my game in the past 10 months. Maybe people thought I was playing badly but that was not the case. "I was playing well but when it mattered the others were just better. Today it worked well."

Roger Federer comes back against Mikhail Youzhny to win in Halle (The Guardian)

Before beating Mikhail Youzhny for the 15th time in a row to lift his sixth Gerry Weber Open in Halle, Roger Federer said: "Winning tournaments is everything." It was a Bob Paisley-esque evocation to tempt fate and the Swiss delivered. Federer overcame an uncertain start to win 6-7, 6-3, 6-4 in just over two hours and he is in good, although not devastating, shape to defend his title at Wimbledon. Whether or not he can reproduce his German form in London is uncertain because the familiar contenders grouped around the world No3 at the summit of the game are probably playing more consistent high-end tennis.


Federer claims sixth Halle crown (Fox News)

Federer lost to Rafael Nadal in his other final this year last month in Rome. He was a quarterfinal loser to Jo-Wilfried Tsonga last weekend at the French Open, but was able to turn around his season on his favorite surface. Grass has always suited Federer well. Seven of his record 17 Grand Slam titles have come on the famed lawns of Wimbledon, where he will return later this month as defending champion. Federer, who is now 6-2 in title matches in Halle, improved to 121-17 on grass.

Roger Federer found the perfect place to end his title drought — a small town in western Germany that has a big tennis stadium and a street named Roger-Federer-Allee leading to it.

I think Roger can handle Berdych if he's fit and focused enough, but will be a very tough match since Berdych plays a similar aggressive style and goes for his shots to the lines. See the Madrid finals last year where a determined Fed pulled the match from Berdych towards his side after a long tussel. If he lapses, then Berdych will steal it. Whereas he is comparatively ok with Tsonga or DelPo... But I predict Murray will be a tough block this time... but Roger will rock again...

Thanks, it's good to have a laugh every once in a while. Let's hope for a decent draw for Federer tomorrow. My thinking is if Nadal does not draw at least two of Janowicz, Rosol, Isner, Raonic, Gulbis, Dimitrov, Haas, Wawrinka, Novak, Murray or Tsonga, then the draw is rigged.

Nadal fans should accept his 5th seed, that's his ranking now, they must deal with it. He will be rusty in the first few rounds because he did not play a pre-Wimby grass tournament. So let's hope he faces some toughies in the first week. For Federer, I just hope he does not get Berdych, I think Tsonga he will want revenge for FO loss and will be motivated but Berdych's forehand to Federer's backhand isn't a good match on grass.
