Halle, Germany, Jun17: Tommy Haas  defeated five-time winner Roger Federer 7-6 (7-5), 6-4 on Sunday to win the Halle grass court title a second time in front of a German home crowd.




Haas, 34, impressed with big returns and achieved the deciding break for 5-4 in the second set with a passing shot en route to victory in 1 hour 35 minutes.

Federer failed to win his 75th career title as he lost his first final of the year from five 2012 deciders.

Haas entered the tournament with a wildcard in his return into the top 100 from a long injury layoff. He captured his 13th career title with his third win in 13 dates with Federer. Haas' first title in Halle was in 2009.
