"I'm not surprised about the tough match and enjoyed the battle".

"But if not, it's no problem".

"So I'm happy I've got another opportunity to win this tournament I like so much, and of course it will be special to win a tournament for the first time ten times".

Frenchman Pierre-Hugues Herbert, a grand slam victor in doubles who was targeting the ultimate grass-court singles scalp, proved no match for the Swiss master and fell to a 6-3 6-3 defeat.

"I know Pierre-Hugues well".

"I'm in a much better shape physically this year than before last year's final".

Federer wins the Halle Open for the 10th time. A nine-time victor here, the 37-year-old Federer could make personal history by winning 10 titles in a single tournament for the first time. The 43rd-ranked Herbert progressed after defending champion Borna Coric withdrew injured after Herbert won the first set of their quarterfinal 7-5.

Oklahoma gets commitment from 5-star 2021 QB Brock Vandagriff
Friday, Edgerrin Cooper officially came aboard Oklahoma's 2020 class, announcing on Twitter that he was committed to the Sooners. Brock Vandegriff is the No. 1 quarterback in his class and is now ranked the top overall prospect according to Rivals.

"It will be unbelievable for me to face Roger. I have played against Nadal, against Djokovic, against Murray, but never against him", said Herbert.

Goffin, 28, who knocked out home favourite and world number five Alexander Zverev in the last eight, beat Berrettini 7-6 (7/4), 6-3 to reach his first ATP Tour final since 2017.

The Belgian has lost seven of his eight meetings with Federer in the past, beating him in three sets at the 2017 ATP Finals in London.

"You can look at things negatively or positively".

The 22-year-old is hoping to rediscover his form and fitness in time for the beginning of Wimbledon on July 1.

"I had a bit of everything, happiness, sadness, frustration", Federer said after the game. The Italian defeated the third-seeded Karen Khachanov 6-2, 7-6 (4).

Federer has won all nine matches against the Spaniard, his latest sealed with a break when his opponent was serving to stay in the match.
