The Swiss overcame Colombia's Alejandro Falla in two tie-break sets to win the German tournament for a seventh time.

Federer is after his eighth Wimbledon title and 18th Grand Slam at SW19 later this month.

He has been victorious at Halle two years in a row after last year's triumph over Mikhail Youzhny.
