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.”

BRAVO ROGER! I and all your fans are just thrilled for you. Alas I could not see the final but heard it was a great match, and also not losing your serve, or a set. May your feet now lightly dance in Wimbledon and I will be rooting and praying for you eve

Roger, Thanks for a great Father's Day (in the United States). "Ace" grabs Halle without dropping serve. Meanwhile, "King" of clay beats the "Djoker" at "Queens." I'm sure the great poker player Pete Sampras was happy. I look forward to another epic battl

You bravely risked the chance of a disappointing loss on grass after only a few days after being in clay-mode and your courage was rewarded.
Now you have adjusted to grass, have matches under your belt, are high on confidence, in possession of another t

Roger, you are simply amazing.

Winning French would've been a good one but in the end, the class, history and tradition is at Wimbledon!!! :-)

This is your turf and no matter how good Nadal is on grass as well, you are the grass King and no one can
