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.

Way to go, Roger! Great to see you with the winning trophy at the end of the event! Cool that you’ve tied McEnroe with 77 titles won.

Seems like you & your family had a nice week enjoying Halle on court and off. Wonderful to hear you’re feeling fit & fresh heading into Wimbledon, plus with a little confidence boost with this title too!

Looking forward to seeing you at SW19 ~ Good luck, Roger!
Cheers to you & your girls!
