Roger Federer had to work hard in his first game
Defending champion in Halle from 2019 roger Federer finds himself on his favorite grass court surface. The Swiss was away from the tour for 14 months due to an injury and had very few appearances in tournaments this year.

Federer had a challenging first-round match in Halle against the world number 90 Belarusian Ilya Ivashka. In a very tight first set in which both players held their serves, it took a tiebreak to separate the two players as Roger won it 7-4. The same scenario continued in the second set until the 12th game when Federer his opponents serve to win the match.

Felix Auger-Aliassime looking in good form on grass
Aliassime didn’t have an encouraging clay season. The world number lost in the first round of four major tournaments on clay this year including a first-round defeat in Roland Garros against Seppi. He had a much better run in Stuttgart on grass as he reached the final and lost to Marin Cilic in straight sets.
In his first-round match against Hurkacz, Aliassime had a commanding win against the Pole. The Canadian didn’t lose his serve in the match while breaking his opponent’s once in each set to claim the match and set up a meeting with his idol Roger Federer for the first time.

Roger Federer vs Felix Auger-Aliassime Prediction
Federer had a tough first-round match against a world number 90 player. That may raise some concerns about whether the Swiss is on top of his form. But Roger’s experience will definitely play a big part in this match and we can expect a better performance from Federer.
Aliassime has just one loss in five games on grass this season and that might raise his confidence against arguably the best-ever player on grass. The Canadian must serve as he did in the first match and needs to attack Federer’s backhand as much as possible.
We think it will be another difficult match for Federer but he still can win these kinds of matches. In the end, Roger’s experience may play a big role to decide the outcome of this match.
