6th Halle title!

16.06.2013 | Tennis, Starseite 3

Roger celebrated the 77th title of his career and the first of this season after a 6-7(5), 6-3, 6-4 victory over Mikhail Youzhny in Halle today.


"I feel fit; I feel confident. I'm excited about what's to come. I'm very pleased with how I played this week," Roger said. He was put under constant pressure until the middle of the second set, when Youzhny double-faulted on break point and Roger then went on to take the set. He took a 4-3 in the third set after a fantastic backhand to later seal his victory and a perfect start into the grass season after just over 2 hours.

With his 77th career title, Roger is now even with John McEnroe on the all-time list after Jimmy Connors (109) and Ivan Lendl (94). Our champion will aim at extending his record of 17 Grand Slam titles at Wimbledon starting in a week's time.

Strange that the webmaster hasn't posted the latest draw! Also one half of Roger is in Germany still and the other half in the UK according to the website! lol

Let's not worry unduly! Anything can happen before the quarter finals! Rafa could experience another 2nd round loss for example!
