Gerry Weber Open, Halle

09.06.2009 | Tennis

Dear fans


I am sorry to announce that I have decided to withdraw from this week's Gerry Weber Open in Halle, Germany.


I sincerely apologize to the tournament organizers, my competitors, and my fans in Germany. I only hope they will understand that I still feel emotionally overwhelmed and exhausted by the incredible events of the past few days. It is hard for me to admit, but I simply cannot imagine giving my best effort in another tournament right away and I don't want to risk injury if I am not 100% prepared. I need to rest and recuperate.


I look forward to returning to Halle in 2010 to go for my sixth title. It is one of my favorite events on the ATP World Tour.


I also want to thank all of you for your unbelievable support these past two weeks. You are the best, and you helped me make a dream come true.

Don't worry Rog, better to miss a tournament than to risk an injury.

By the way, great first French Open victory. Saw the match as my mum recorded it. Giving Robin a master class on how to play tennis, you're a legend.

Any way, keep it up and stay h

Regarding videos, the one of Roger at 19 was nice and this one is also so sweet about Roger and Mirka - Roger looks so handsome and Mirka just gorgeous. What a lovely and loving couple they are:

Well Roger this decision is well taken because after a very hard two weeks physically and mentally you need break for one week so be prepared for the Wimbledon and ready to face the hard competitions and win against them like you fought with the hard comp
