After a couple tournaments where he showed some signs of being rusty after taking an extended break during the clay court season, Roger Federer played the best match of this grass court season in the championship match of the Gerry Weber Open in Halle, Germany against Alexander Zverev. Federer’s backhand was back in solid form as he dominated Zverev 6-1, 6-3 for his ninth Halle title.
