Second title without dropping serve

16.06.2008 | Tennis

Roger not only celebrated his fifth victory in Halle and his 55th career ATP title yesterday, but also his second tournament victory without dropping serve! He held his serve 49 games in total. The first time had been in Doha in 2005 Doha with 43 games.

 

This was Roger’s comment after the match: “I guess once you take the decision to commit and come somewhere, you hope for a good week. But there is never a guarantee. I was just hoping not to have a bad tournament in the first couple of rounds and then look back on maybe four days. It would have been really tough for me loosing on grass again for the first time and having just lost in Paris the final. It would have been a rough few days not having gotten through to the semis or finals. For this reason, I am really excited the way I played, never dropped a service game throughout the week. I think the first time in my career I achieved such a thing by winning a title. So, I couldn’t be more happy. I beat quality players and also my level of play was very good. So, I’m really pleased with my performance.”

Hi Roger,

This is good news, but remember winning Wimbledon will be the ultimate prize - winning it for the 6th time. Rest up and stay focussed all throughout in London.
