Top-ranked Roger Federer survived a big scare Tuesday against unseeded Robin Soderling before extending his winning streak on grass to 25 matches in the first round of the Gerry Weber Open. The two-time Wimbledon champion edged 20-year-old Soderling 6-7 (5), 7-6 (6), 6-4 in 2 hours, 20 minutes in his first match on grass this year.
