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.

 

Roger

There is no need to apologize for withdrawing from Halle. You are a big boy, you know what you are doing otherwise you wouldn’t be where you are now. So keep it up. Say hello to your biggest fan Mirka and don’t forget to thank God for her existence. Achie

Hope it has sunk in by now that you are the champion at Ronald Garros and hope you are feeling rested and having a fantastic time. Take care and its fine if you can't play at Halle. Good Luck for Wimbledon which I believe you will be the cha

I was glad to hear that you decided not to play Halle. Rest, relax, have a bit of a honeymoon!! Lifetime Grand Slam winners should be able to celebrate a bit at least. Then, go a win No. 15 at Wimbledon and 16 at the Open (where I already have tickets)
