Roger Federer wins at grass-court tournament over Alejandro Falla

By Aubrie Reichardt,

During the Gerry Weber Open in Germany on Sunday, Roger Federer won the final against Colombian, Alejandro Falla.

The final score was 7-6(2), 7-6 (3), giving Federer his seventh title. This wasn’t Federer’s first win over Falla. In fact, Federer has now won seven games out of the seven times the two have faced against each other.

Federer’s first win of the season didn’t happen here. Previously, he won Dubai’s title back in February and is now looking forward to a possible eighth title in the All England Club, reports Sky Sports.

The match between Falla and Federer reportedly lasted one hour and 28 minutes, with Falla leading the first half.

Falla may have lost the title, but the 69th ranked player was the first Colombian to reach a grass-court tournament final, according to the Los Angeles Times.

Out of Federer’s 12 years of attending the tournament, this was his ninth time in the final.

For the women, Ana Ivanovic took home not only a 37th win, but her third title of the year on a grass-court.
