Coric beats Federer to win Gerry Weber Open

Borna Coric Roger Federer

The Croatian outsider, ranked 34th, also ended Federer's 20-match win streak on clay, which stretched to June a year ago.

The victory means Federer will slip down to world number two when the ATP rankings are released on Monday.

Borna Coric ended Roger Federer's 20-match winning streak on grass by beating him in the Halle Open final while also bringing to a halt the Swiss maestro's reign as world No.1.

The 21-year-old then broke Federer in the sixth game of the final set when the Swiss sliced a backhand long, before claiming only his second ATP title. "It just didn't go my way", Federer said after the match, as per the Express.

Coric, who defeated second-seeded Alexander Zverev in the first round, saved two set points in the first set tiebreaker.

SpaceX's Rocket Wins Certification, $130M Contract
ULA used to monopolize similar missions for the government until SpaceX landed its first military contract in 2016. This makes the Falcon Heavy "the cheapest enormous rocket" that the Air Force has ever contracted, notes Quartz .

However, with some improved performances during the recently-concluded clay-court season as well as his first final appearance since his win at Eastbourne previous year, Djokovic only looked at the positives ahead of Wimbledon.

Coric moved out to 5-2 and completed his upset on a second match point a game later as Federer's volley hit the top of the net.

This was Federer's first defeat on this surface since he lost to Tommy Haas in his opening match of the 2017 grass-court season.

The Croatian withstood a Federer assault in the 11th game, which lasted for almost 10 minutes and featured five deuces.

Federer, who has 20 Grand Slams to his name, is aiming for his ninth success at SW19 with the tournament getting underway on July 2.
