Second-seeded Roger Federer looked in his vintage form as he scored a straight set victory against local favourite Floarian Mayer with 6-4, 7-5 scoreline in the pre-quarterfinal match of 2012 Gerry Weber Open, Halle on Thursday. This victory must have come as a sort of respite for Federer, who lost in straight sets to Novak Djokovic – at Roland Garros semis. Six Wimbledon titles winner, Roger Federer likes to play on grass and amidst present state of affairs, it seems that only Nadal or Djokovic can stop him on this surface. Well, Federer will take on Canadian tennis sensation Milos Raonic in his quarter-final encounter on Friday and we can expect some interesting tennis action.
Sixteen Grand Slam titles winner Roger Federer has certainly passed his prime, but the way he has been able to maintain his consistency on tour – which is something incredible in many ways. Obviously, a player of Federer’s stature knows how to take that one vital step at a time. Federer has an impressive 36-5 win-loss record this season with 4 ATP World Tour titles – including two Masters trophies. The Swiss ace is bidding for his 75th career title and sixth Halle trophy.
Federer’s opponent is twenty one years old Milos Raonic who has won three ATP World Tour titles so far in his small career. The Canadian has a very good 25-8 win-loss record for the season so far and he has been improving consistently since making his debut on the ATP World Tour.
In head-to-head, Federer apparently leads with 2-0 against the Canadian. Last time they met earlier this season in Madrid Masters, where Federer topped Raonic in three set.
