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.

During 2004-07 and slowly the youngsters caught up in the years after... But still they struggle till date to dominate him... That's why he's the King of Tennis...

I liked the way Youzhny replied when asked about Roger's game not being the same:
“I don’t like when somebody starts to talk about he’s not the same,” Youzhny said. “What do you mean he’s not the same? He’s the same good.” He said "Now there are some other players who are playing at that level. Before Federer's level was very high, now there are some other players who reached that level."
So true. Well said Mikhail! It's a no-brainer that Fed played at an unseen level during 200

Malisse beat Ferrer in straights at the Topshelf Open in Netherlands... He is good on Grass. He took a set off our Champ last year and almost beat Delpo at Queens. 30+ old are doing great this Grass season.
