After having spent a day at home on Monday, Roger travelled on to Wimbledon yesterday in order to prepare on the ‘holy lawn’. "Roger is head and shoulders above the rest”, said Pete Sampras. Roger is heading for his third title in Wimbledon. He is very confident on grass after his third successive title at Halle at the weekend, where he defeated Marat Safin, giving him his 29th win-in-a-row on the surface, a run which has only served to boost his confidence even further as he chases a 30th career crown. "I'm happy about the title in Halle, it's a kind of relief. Having dealt with the defeat in Paris so well, this was surprising for me," said Roger. "I feel confident about Wimbledon, but there can always be a tough draw, there can always be a shock loss in the first round. I don't really think about it, that's what I was more concerned about last year defending my first time Wimbledon title. Now it's easier for me to deal with the situation." Twelve months ago, Roger overcame a first set loss to see off Andy Roddick in the Wimbledon final but the American also warmed-up for the third Grand Slam of the season in style clinching a third successive Queen's Club title.
