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.

When asked Fed that some have called for Wimbledon to adjust its seedings to move Nadal up to the top 4, pat came the reply:
“Ferrer has played rock solid the last 365 days,” Federer said. “What are you going to say? Rafa hadn’t played that much. That’s how the rankings go. But in probably a month or so, Rafa is going to be the top two — or three. So he’s going to be patient right now.”

Terrific response! Ranking points are awarded for the hard-work put in over 365 days not j

Has anyone noticed the that during the second set 3/2 for Fed , when youzny was serving? They totally messed up the points and Roger would have broken right then and there?? They kept giving Roger's points to Youzny and vice versa right up until deuce....but by then if count properly..it was Rogers break! Anyway, you made it anyway Roger!! So happy!!! LOve Janice
