We’ve reached the decisive day with Roger Federer and David Goffin fighting for the Noventi Open title in Halle. Join us while we take a look at the best value bets for this Sunday’s final at the Gerry Weber Stadion.

<div><h2>Roger Federer (1) vs. David Goffin</h2><p><a href="https://www.oddsmarket.com/tennis/world/atp/halle-germany/goffin-vs-federer-3829552/" target="_blank" title="Check Federer - Goffin Betting Odds"><strong>Sunday, June 23, Halle</strong></a></p><p>Roger Federer continued his quest for a record-extending tenth title at the Noventi Open on Saturday with a 6-3, 6-3 win over Pierre-Hugues Herbert in just 62 minutes. The world No.3 did not face a single break point and lost only five points on serve against Herbert to reach his 13th final in Halle. Federer survived two tough matches in the last couple of days and this is his first straight sets victory on this tournament since his opening match against John Millman. Despite Roger’s outstanding record on this event, the 37-year-old suffered a disappointing defeat to Borna Coric in last year’s final and hopes to go a step further this Sunday at the Gerry Weber Stadion.</p><p>Federer will next take on David Goffin, who ended Matteo Berrettini’s eight-match winning streak on Saturday to reach his first ATP Tour final in 18 months. Goffin has struggled for form in 2019 but is slowly rediscovering the tennis that took him to number seven in the world. Known as one of the best counter punchers in the game, the fast court conditions in Halle suit David’s style with the Belgian winning 39.20% of the points played on his opponents’ serve this week. Adding to this, Goffin fired an impressive average of 0.60 aces per service game on this event and saved all three break points he faced in the match against Berrettini in the semi-finals.</p><p>This will be the ninth official meeting between these two players. Federer leads 7-1 in their head-to-head but Goffin won recorded one of the biggest wins of his career in the semi-finals of the 2017 Nitto ATP Finals with a three-set victory against Federer.</p><p>Looking now at the odds for this contest, the bookmakers are expecting a straightforward win from Federer with the Swiss as the heavy favourite at 17/100 (1.17) with <a href="https://a.oddsmarket.com/record/v?c=153&amp;a=8ec6399a-9df1-4c52-b272-39e6428836a6&amp;f=1" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Join Betfair &amp; Start Playing Today!">Betfair</a>. Despite Roger’s outstanding numbers on this surface, Goffin is a very tough opponent on these conditions. David’s footwork and court speed are phenomenal, two of the most important things to be successful on grass. The Belgian No.1 has also a very good slice serve and it’s never easy to break him on these low bouncing courts. On the other hand, Federer has struggled to find his range and rhythm from the baseline at the Gerry Weber Open. The 20-time Grand Slam champion lost a set against Jo-Wilfried Tsonga and Roberto Bautista Agut and also needed to play a tie break on his first-round match against Millman. With this in mind, our suggestion is for you to add the Over 21.5 games to your <a href="https://www.oddsmarket.com/tips/" target="_blank" title="More Predictions &amp; Free Tips">betting tips</a> at 22/25 (1.88) with <a href="http://a.oddsmarket.com/record/v?c=155&amp;a=6a145d2b-505f-491b-a70e-2f5f31742828&amp;f=1" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Play at this A+ Rated Bookmaker!">Pinnacle</a>, a line that was covered in three of Roger’s four previous matches this week in Halle.</p></div>
