Federer Advances to Gerry Weber Open Semifinals

Roger Federer blazed out to a fast start Friday afternoon at the Gerry Weber Open, before comfortably advancing past Florian Mayer under a closed roof and sold out crowd in Halle, Germany. The Swiss maestro rolled to a first set bagel, 6-0, before Mayer got on the board and held serve without much trouble.

The 7-time champion didn’t face much resistance either, pushing the second set into a tiebreak before accelerating to the finish line. Federer flicked a casual backhand return down the line for a winner to cap a 6-0 7-6 (1) win over Mayer, and will face Ivo Karlovic in Saturday’s semifinal. The 6 foot 10 Croatian fired a record 45 aces in his three set upset over Tomas Berdych.
