Roger Federer is ambitious “The title has to be the target in Halle.”

With a good feeling he will start into the week. “It would be amazing to get the title”.

Federer is very close to Germany´s biggest tournament. “I am injury free and I feel the grit. I love to play in this place. And that´s why I start here with a very good feeling.” The swiss is currently world number 3 and could win his favourite tournament for the 10th time tis year. It would be the first tournament he could win 10 times.

“It was great to reach the semis at a Grand Slam [Roland Garros]. And this at the first time in Roland Garros in the last 4 years.” After the French Open Roger Federer rested for two days and feels good now. “I like this intuitive, aggressive game. It´s always a tightrope walk. Matches are often decided in a few points. You always have to be awake and very concentrated.”

His first opponent will be John Millmann. The 29 year old Australian is current 56th in the ATP.
