World number three Roger Federer has found form ahead of Wimbledon with his 10th ever title at the Halle Open on Sunday.
The Swiss maestro knocked off Belgium’s David Goffin 7-6 (7-2), 6-1 in the final to secure a record-breaking 10th crown.
“It’s unbelievable. I never thought when I first played here that I would win 10 titles,” Federer said.
“Often when it went well for me here, I also had successful Wimbledons, so this sets me up nicely.
“It’s never a guarantee of course but I’ve been on the Tour for long enough to know what it means.
“And most important I know I’m injury free. I’m going to enjoy this, have a couple of days off and get ready.”
Federer is an eight-time Wimbledon champion and looms as one of the top contenders for the 2019 title.
“It’s always good at my age to prove myself that I can last five matches in six days and tough ones along the way,” Federer said.
Wimbledon is due to get underway on Monday 1 July, with the draw to take place on Friday.
