Record seventh straight Wimbledon final!

03.07.2009 | Tennis

Roger is just one more win away from making tennis history! He advanced to his record seventh straight Wimbledon final today, defeating Tommy Haas 7-6(3), 7-5, 6-3.

 

"I'm very happy with my performance and it's unbelievable to back into another Wimbledon final," Roger said. "I've had a lot of pressure over all the years, so this is just another great match, great opportunity for me to get into the history books."

 

Tommy Haas held the pace during the two-plus hour match, but Roger was simply superior. A victory in Sunday's final would give our champ his unprecedented 15th Grand Slam title, which would break a tie with Hall of Famer Pete Sampras. Roger said he would be happy if Pete came to Wimbledon to watch him try to break his record. "He might come around, he might not. It's his choice. I'd love to see him because he's a good friend of mine. Very honored of course that I share the record of 14 with him."

 

If Roger wins, he will be the third player to win six or more Wimbledon titles. William Renshaw and Sampras both won seven. He will face Great Britain's Andy Murray or American Andy Roddick on Sunday.
