I never thought when I first played here that I would win 10 titles,” Federer said.After being dragged to three sets in two of his first three rounds in Germany, Federer looked set for another tough fight when world number 33 Goffin earned three consecutive break points at 2-2 in the opening set.However, Goffin failed to capitalise on those chances as his opponent took the set to a tiebreak where he switched gears to take the early lead in the contest.Federer broke quickly in the second set and did not allow Goffin back into the match, becoming become the oldest tour-level champion since a 43-year-old Ken Rosewall prevailed in Hong Kong in 1977.Wimbledon begins on July 1 with Federer seeking a ninth title at the tournament.For sports news, updates, live scores and cricket fixtures, log on to indiatoday.in/sports.
