Federer Struggles With Difficulty In The First Game On Grass
Federer Struggles with Difficulty in the First game on Grass. Roger Federer has trouble qualifying for the second round of the Halle grass tournament.
The nine-time champion won 7-6 (1) 6-3 against Australian John Millman in his first competition on the grass of the year,
who surprised him last year at the US Open in the fourth round.
Federer got only two break points against the number 57 in the world and used one of them.
In the last game, Federer had to make an effort, and after an opportunity for a break for Millman,
the 37-year-old Swiss made three points.
Federer’s next opponent is Frenchman Jo-Wilfried Tsonga,
who defeated fellow countryman Benoît Paire in two sets.
Last year Federer lost in Halle in the final of the Croatian Borna Coric.
At the simultaneous tournament of Queen’s was not played today.
Due to bad weather, the entire program was moved to Wednesday.
