HALLE, Germany (AFP) - Roger Federer is hoping to kick-start his tennis season on the Halle grass this week as he goes in search of a morale-boosting first tournament success this season.

The 31-year-old top seed has not won a single trophy this season but is still the all-time most successful player in the Halle ATP tournament's 20-year history.

He won it for the first of five times in 2003, the same year he landed his first Wimbledon title.

"I would like to lift my first trophy of the season in Halle... it would give me a confidence boost," said the Swiss.
