Roger Federer News & Form

After a straight-set victory over John Millman in the opening round, the top-seeded Roger Federer had a lot of problems to beat his rivals in the previous two matches at the 2019 Noventi Open. In the Round of 16, Roger barely overcame Jo-Wilfried Tsonga 7-6 4-6 7-5, while he had to play three sets again in the quarterfinal, beating the seventh-seeded Roberto Bautista Agut 6-3 4-6 6-4.

Federer is searching for his 10th title in Halle and the eight-time Wimbledon champion has a 179-26 record on grass in his career. Roger is playing very well this season, recording 30 wins and just four losses while winning a pair of trophies in Dubai and Miami.

Pierre-Hugues Herbert News & Form

Pierre-Hugues Herbert came to Halle as the World No. 43, and he has a 20-13 record this season, reaching the final in Montpellier where he lost to Jo-Wilfried Tsonga in straight sets back in February. Herbert is still looking for his first title at the ATP Tour, and the 28-year old Frenchman is very successful in doubles, winning 15 titles in his career including all four different Grand Slams.

Herbert defeated his compatriot Gael Monfils in straight sets 7-6 6-4 in the first round, while he overcame Sergiy Stakhovsky 3-6 7-6 6-2 in the Round of 16. In the quarterfinal, Herbert won the first set against Borna Coric when the defending champion had to withdraw due to a rib injury. Herbert now has a 13-11 record on the grass court in his career.

Federer and Herbert have never met each other before. As I’ve already mentioned, Herbert is a specialist for doubles, and he’s more focused on his singles career over the last five years.

Federer vs Herbert Betting Tip

The only chance for Pierre-Hugues Herbert to upset the odds here is to serve extremely well and keep his head cool in key moments. Also, the Frenchman will need to be lucky, while he also needs Federer to play really bad.

However, Roger already had a couple of tough matches in the previous two rounds, and I expect him to play much better in the semifinal. After two narrow wins, Federer should beat Herbert in straight sets, so take him at 4/11 with Betfair or 888Sport. It’s hard to earn greater wages when Roger is playing, especially against the World No. 43.
