Roger Federer has arrived in Halle for Gerry Weber Open

The six-time winner was greeted before the Gerry Weber Sportpark Hotel by tournament director Ralf Weber with a cake in Halle. Federer was incorporated from his last year's success. "It's a good feeling to be back here. In a place that gives such a beautiful memories," said the 32-year-old Swiss, who arrived with his entire family, wife Mirka, the twin daughters Myla Rose and Charlene Riva and the recently born twin sons Leo and Lenny.

Federer joins with the Gerry Weber Open Lifetime Contract, ie that the 17-time Grand Slam champion will always compete in Halle Westfalen up to end of his career.

Federer took time after French Open for both intensive training sessions as well as time with his family.

"Yesterday I hiked with the family in the mountains," Federer said. He had even sent for his huge social media fan base a photo from a train. "I am fit, healthy, fresh and of good courage," said the Swiss, "of course I really want to defend my title. But I've seen how strong the field this year is, which is very hard."

Federer completed his first two-hour training session to get used to the lawn - his favorite surface in the afternoon, on which he celebrated the biggest success of his dream career with a record seven Wimbledon crowns.
