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.

Good Job Roger. I love you. However, I really hope you can raise your level in order to win wimbledon. It's still not your best tennis yet. To win wimbledon, you need to hit harder, run more and put away your elegant for a while. We all really want you to be the 8 times wimbledon champ!! good luck!

it has been said you don't have to play great to win, just play better than your opponent. so i don't care how he played, he won. he's played better and lost. i'll take a win any kind of way. so great job by roger. now we will hear the yapping about ranking if he drops to #5. pete won his last USO age 31 ranked #17 in 2002. never played again. june 2003 ranked #28. that timeline for roger = 2012 age 31 ranked #1. june 2013 ranked #3. both born in aug. 71 & 81. roger compares fantastic.

Hey Rog,

Congrats on the first title of the season. As your fan, it is a huge relieve seeing you lifting another trophy. At first set, I thought this would be another one that slip from your grip again. You made too many mistake in the first set and I hope that you will address to those this week.
I hope to see you lifting another Wimbledon trophy. I hope that you will play good and consistent through out the Wimbledon tournament especially when you meet those big guys. Good Luck and rest we
