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 ends victory drought (Los Angeles Times)

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.

Its annoying to see some media (and of course Nadal fans) making a big fuss about Nadal seeded No 5. It has happened many times to top seeds in the past and Wimbledon has been following this seeding system for many years. So why don't they just accept the fact that he has low ranking points than Ferrer (who played consistently for last 12 months) and Nadal was beaten by No 100 last year. Surely Nadal and Co. bring unpleasant atmosphere to this Gentlemen's game, especially at Wimbledon...

Maybe Nadal/ Toni has voodoo dolls of Djokovic and Federer. When he watches their matches he sits on the sofa with doll and needle, then poke to Novak doll's ankle and he twists it on court, poke to Roger doll's back and he can't serve well.
But I also think someone has Nadal doll and poke him in butt often, that is why he pinch that so much :)
