Roger Federer begins grasscourt season with win over Millman in Halle

"The victory must always be the goal here in Halle".

Australian Millman dug in early on and reached a tie-break without facing a single break point, instead putting Federer under a little pressure in front of a nervy crowd.

The nine-time Halle Open champion, Roger Federer has arrived for Germany's largest ATP tournament and the Swiss legend is closely associated with the tournament and officials in Halle, also he is proficient in their local tongue.

Playing Roland Garros for the first time in four years, Federer surged to the semifinals falling to archrival Rafael Nadal in a blustery Episode 39 of their iconic rivalry.

The 120W super flashcharge is a huge improvement over the previous tech, though we are not sure when to see this in real usage. The 4,000mAh battery of the iQOO smartphone takes only 45 minutes to reach full capacity through its 44W fast charging tech.

"The grass-court season is extremely short", said Federer.

"I'm doing great. I'm happy with where my game is. It would be just incredible to win for a 10th time", he said. Federer has a hotel room with a view overlooking the Noventi Open's Court 1. When friends come here, they cannot believe that you can watch tennis from the hotel. So, this is my first match back on the grass. "You have to stay awake and concentrated". "It's totally cool to see your friends and rivals from the balcony during their match", said Federer.

The 20-time Grand Slam champion said he played clay season, in part, to stay sharp and accumulate match play for grass season where he's aiming to capture a ninth Wimbledon crown.

"John is always a tough opponent who doesn't give anything away".
