Federer kicks off grasscourt season with win over Millman

Roger Federer began his preparations for next month’s Wimbledon Championships with a 7-6(1) 6-3 victory over unseeded Australian John Millman in the opening round of the Halle Open. Competing in his first match since being beaten by eventual champion Rafael Nadal in the French Open semi-finals, the Swiss proved too strong for Millman in the grasscourt tournament. World number 57 Millman, who had beaten Federer in four sets in their previous encounter at last year’s U.S. Open, put up a strong fight in the opening set but was no match for his opponent at the contest wore on.
