Roger Federer is ready to conquer the title of the 10th Halle Open

Roger Federer went to Halle (Germany) to prepare to conquer the title of the 10th Halle Open in his career. Wanting to win Federer will have to overcome challenges Alexander Zverev or Borna Coric.

Roger Federer has been crowned champion nine times in Halle Open. In turn from 2003, 2004, 2005, 2006, 2008, 2013, 2014, 2015, and 2017. In addition, the Swiss "Federer Express" also won the runner-up position in 2010, 2012 and 2018.

Recently, Roger Federer arrived in Halle and he was welcomed by the Organizing Committee of the tournament as a long-time relative. Roger Federer excitedly: "This is a very familiar place for myself. I always feel healthy here. Here, I am fresh, I have peace of mind. And now I don't have any physical problems”.

In this year's Halle Open, Roger Federer is currently targeting a very clear goal. It was the 10th title of Gerry Weber Stadion. But surely, that will not be an easy task for him. Because the "Next Gen" rivals like Alexander Zverev or Borna Coric are gathering together. These players are planning to conduct a counter attack once more.

In last year's tournament final, Borna Coric defeated Roger Federer with 7-6 (6) 3-6 and 6-2. At the 2016 tournament, Alexander Zverev also won Roger Federer in the semi-finals with 7-6 (4) 5-7 6-3. Both players for this "Next Gen" series appear in the Halle Open this year. Meanwhile, reigning runner-up Roland Garros 2019 - Dominic Thiem did not attend the tournament.

According to an announcement from the Organizing Committee, the Austrian player decided not to play at the Halle Open this year. The reason is that Dominic Thiem is feeling tired after the clay season. Dominic Thiem lost to Rafael Nadal in the Roland Garros final a few days ago. 

Halle Open 2019 (ATP 500) will start the competition from June 17 at Gerry Weber Stadion, Halle, Germany.

Round 1: John Millman (Australia)

Round 2: Jo-Wilfried Tsonga or Benoit Paire (both from France)
