Roger Federer Begins Title Defence With Straight-Sets Win

Roger Federer completed a straight-sets win over Jan Lennard-Struff as he started his bid for a fourth straight title at the Gerry Weber Open. The defending champion has enjoyed a dominant reign at the grass court tournament and defeated Struff 6-4 7-6 (7-3) to extend his lengthy winning run in Halle. 

Federer only claimed a single break throughout the match, breaching Struff's serve to secure the opening set. The spirited German extended the second set into a tie-break, but could not hold off the Swiss star and an overhit forehand sealed his fate.

A back injury forced Federer out of the French Open and he will be hoping to bolster his fitness on grass this week before heading to Wimbledon later this month.
