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.

Saw your match this morning via Tennis Channel. So happy you grabbed the 2nd and final set from Youzhny . . . I know you'd be ready for Wimby, didn't you say "the best is yet to come?"

Congrats Roger, I'm a new member at your site, but a long-time fan. I live in USA (Vermont) and really enjoyed watching your matches at halle this past week...with a fitting ending "you holding the winners trophy" Back in 2006 I took my family down to NY city to watch the great match you won against Andy Roddick in the US Open final. We took many PICs and is a highlight for my entire family. We're all behind your continued efforts, and look forward to you extending your Grand Slam totals...

Fantastic Roger...so happy for you: No.6 at Halle! We should all love to see No.8 at Wimbledon - and I believe you can do it again. Have a nice little break, love you always, xxxxxxxxxxxx

Good luck for Wimbledon, ALLEZ :).
