Federer reaches the 15th Halle Open semi-final

Struggling to overcome the Bautista Agut 6-3, 4-6, 6-4 after 1 hour 53 minutes, No. 1 seed Roger Federer participated in the 15th semi-final in his career. He was only 15 matches the final of Halle Open.

After the first set of victories in the dominant game, Roger Federer faced fierce resistance from his Spanish rival in the next two sets.

The 9-time champion has struggled to save 4/5 break-points. Eventually he won the final victory after successfully breaking Bautista's late game.  During the match, Bautista Agut scored 26 winner and 27 mistakes, while in Roger Federer respectively 34 points and 24 errors.

At the upcoming semifinals of the 2019 Halle Open, the Swiss player will meet Pierre-Hugues Herbert, who has won the ticket to the next due to the opponent giving up. After losing the first 5-7 sets, Borna Coric holding the reigning champion was withdrawn by a back injury. This is also the reason why 22-year-old players must request medical care while being led 4-5.

Roger Federer is only 2 victories from the 10th title goal in Halle Open.
