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.

Nice response from Youzhny when asked if Roger's game declined:
“I don’t like when somebody starts to talk about he’s not the same,” Youzhny said. “What do you mean he’s not the same? He’s the same good.”
Well said Youzhny... Roger is Roger...
