On Sunday, Federer won his 10th title in Halle after defeating David Goffin 7-6, 6-1 in the final.

Federer, 37, beat David Goffin 7-6 (7/2), 6-1 to secure his 102nd career singles title and remain unbeaten on grass so far this season.

"It's the first time ever I could win a title 10 times in one place, so it's obviously a very special moment in my career", Federer said.

There are only two men in the Open Era who have won a single tournament for ten times, the first one being, Federer's arch-rival, Rafael Nadal, who has amassed a colossal number of titles on clay for a single tournament (Roland-Garros (12), Monte-Carlo Masters (11), Barcelona Open (11)).

"Every time I've won in Halle, I went on to play really well at Wimbledon".

Federer would like to increase his record 20 career Grand Slam title with a Ninth Wimbledon title next month.

En route to his victory on the German grass, Roger Federer played two daunting matches against Jo-Wilfried Tsonga and Roberto Bautista Agut.

"I was able to run away with the lead getting the break early on in the second and I think that maybe calmed down my nerves", Federer said.
