‘Injury-free’ Roger Federer sets sights on Wimbledon after winning 10th Halle title | Tennis | Sport


Compared to the past three years, Federer has had a much busier schedule after deciding to play on the clay.

But the added workload has not slowed Federer down, reaching the semi-finals at the French Open then winning in Halle.

After past problems with his back, the Swiss star says he will be arriving at SW19 with no injury concerns.

And the 37-year-old believes his win in Halle bodes well for success next month in London, where he has won eight times.

“Every time I won in Halle, I’ve gone on to play really well in Wimbledon,” Federer told the ATP.

“It is never a guarantee of course but I’ve been on the tour long enough to know what it means.

“Also most importantly, I know I’m injury free. I’m going to have a couple of days off I guess and then get ready once I’m at Wimbledon.

“For now I’m going to enjoy this one, rest up a little bit and look forward [to Wimbledon].”
