2015 HALLE: Federer Wins 86th Career Title, Record 15th On Grass

As I expected, Roger Federer won his 8th title at Halle by defeating Andreas Seppi in the final 7-6(1) 6-4. It was Federer's 86th career ATP tour title and 15th career  grass court title. He improved to 12-1 over his Italian competitor and is now 15-5 in grass court finals and 86-44 in finals overall. It's the current World #2's fourth title of the year, following wins in Istanbul, Dubai and Brisbane.

Federer becomes the third player in ATP history to win a tournament 8 times. Rafael Nadal has won Roland Garros a record nine times and also has won clay court titles in Monte Carlo and Barcelona 8 times each. Guillermo Vilas won his hometown tournament in Buenos Aires 8 times as well. Federer has won Wimbledon 7 times. So far!
