After winning his first title in 10 months in Halle, defending Wimbledon champion Roger Federer said he earned a much-needed confidence boost heading into the grass-court major.

“I’m just very happy how I played this week and excited about what’s to come now,” he told reporters after claiming his 77th career title. “Because I feel confident, I feel fit and fresh and that’s very important at this point in the season... I’m not absolutely satisfied with the first six months. Maybe if I had changed my tournament schedule I would have won more titles but that wasn’t the goal.”
