    Federer shifts attention to grass in Halle The clay-court season has come to a close as the ATP World Tour heads to Halle, Germany for the start of grass season at the Gerry Weber Open. French Open finalist Roger Federer looks to win his sixth title at the tournament.

    World No. 3 Roger Federer makes his return to grass-court competition after finishing runner-up to World No. 1 Rafael Nadal at Roland Garros. The 29-year-old enters into the Gerry Weber Open as the top seed, hoping to capture a sixth title at the event.

    Federer is located in the same half of the draw as (3) Gael Monfils, (6) Florian Mayer and (7) Alexandr Dolgopolov. Other competitors in the section include: defending champion Lleyton Hewitt, Andreas Seppi, Philipp Kohlschreiber, Robin Haase, Pere Riba, Ivan Dodig, Jarkko Nieminen and wildcards Dustin Brown and Tommy Haas.

    Federer is scheduled to open his campaign against Hewitt. The nearest seed to the World No. 3 is Dolgopolov, who looms as a possible quarterfinal-round opponent. Passage through the early rounds could set a semifinal meeting with Mayer or first-time entrant Monfils.

    Former champion Tomas Berdych is slated to top the bottom half of the draw this week. The 2007 champion has been placed in the same section as: (4) Mikhail Youzhny, (5) Viktor Troicki and (8) Milos Raonic.

    The Czech will begin his effort against Ruben Bemelmans of Belgium in the opening round.
