Roger Federer has cemented his status as World No. 3 after winning a record 10th title in Halle, while fellow 37-year-old Feliciano Lopez has shot up 60 spots in the latest ATP rankings after his incredible run to the Queen’s Club silverware.

Federer made history in Halle as he joined great rival Rafael Nadal as the only men to have won 10 trophies at a single event. The Swiss legend defeated David Goffin 7-6(2) 6-1 in Sunday’s final to capture the 102nd title of his career and his third of 2019, which makes him the tour’s leader for most titles this season.

The 37-year-old is the oldest tour-level champion since 43-year-old Ken Rosewall in 1977, eclipsing Lopez by one month as he captured the Queen’s title just a couple of hours later!

Federer is just seven titles off passing Jimmy Connors’ record of 109 career titles after capturing the 19th grass-court crown of his illustrious career.

"It’s amazing. For some reason I didn’t think I was going to make it anymore. Didn’t think of it much. I just thought match-for-match because the second round and quarters were so tough that I never really thought about how it would feel if I won and now it’s reality," Federer said. "[It’s the] first time ever I could win a title 10 times in one place, so it’s obviously a very special moment in my career."

Federer is 68-7 in Halle and has never lost before the quarter-finals in 17 appearances at the 500-level event. He remains at No. 3 in the latest rankings behind Novak Djokovic and Rafael Nadal but will be seeded No. 2 at Wimbledon due to The Championships taking previous and recent grass-court form into consideration for their seedings.

"Every time I’ve won in Halle, I went on to play really well at Wimbledon. It’s never a guarantee of course, but I’ve been on the Tour for long enough to know what it means," Federer said. "Most important is I know I’m injury-free. I’m going to have a couple of days off I guess and then get ready once I’m going to be at Wimbledon practising again. But for now I’m going to enjoy this one, rest up a little bit, and then look forward to the rest."

Despite falling just short in the final, it was also a tremendous week for Goffin, who was appearing in his first tour-level final since the 2017 ATP Finals - a tournament where he beat Federer and Nadal before going down to Grigor Dimitrov. The Belgian rises back into the top 20 courtesy of his run to the Halle final, moving up 10 spots to No. 23.

Meanwhile, Lopez capped a fairytale week at Queen’s Club by winning both the singles and doubles title, conquering Gilles Simon in a third set tiebreak before teaming up with a returning Andy Murray to beat Joe Salisbury and Rajeev Ram in the doubles showpiece.

Lopez arrived at Queen’s with just three tour-level wins under his belt for the season, but he leaves with four more and a 500-level title, which is the second time he’s triumphed at the tournament following his victory over Marin Cilic in 2017, while he was also runner-up to Dimitrov in 2014. The 37-year-old is just the third wildcard to win the Queen’s title, joining Ivan Lendl and Pete Sampras.

“I thought the best moment of my career was when I won this tournament in 2017, but it’s right now,” said Lopez. “He was coming up with unbelievable passing shots and I was a little bit desperate, to be honest. The tie-break is a bit of a lottery, of course, but I’m just so happy to win here.”

Lopez dropped outside the top 100 for the first time since 2002 earlier this season, but he’s rocketed back to the cusp of the top 50 after his Queen’s triumph, shooting up 60 places to No. 53. Simon also earned himself a nice little rankings rise with his run to the final, moving up 13 rungs to No. 25.

Cilic, the defending Queen’s champion, slides further down the rankings to No. 18 after losing in the second round, while Stuttgart Matteo Berrettini makes his top 20 debut after making the semi-finals of Halle.
