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.

Women's draw second? How discourteous!

Oh no!!! Yes, I have heard it confirmed. This is a disaster. I only hope Roger is able to rise to his imperious best to hopefully see off Nadal. Then again, it isn't a foregone conclusion that he will make it that way.

Has this draw been confirmed? I have seen differing reports. I can't find anything authentic. If this is the draw, this is a disaster.
