ROGER FEDERER NEWS

Roger continues to break records as the 37-year old remains strong in his career. 

 

This past week, he solidified 101 Career Titles after winning the Miami Open. Jimmy Connors is the only player who has the Swiss Star beat with 109 titles to his name. 

 

Let's take a closer look at some of the numbers and accomplishments to get to 101. 

 

While we don't always see Roger on the doubles court, 8 of these titles have been due to Doubles Victories. 

 

He has won titles in 19 different countries at 31 different tournaments.

 

Roger has 20 Grand Slams titles and 27 ATP Masters 1000 titles. 

 

He has won both Basel and Halle 9 times; has won Wimbledon and Dubai 8 times; has won Cincinnati 7 times and has 7 Australian Open titles. 

 

57 of his wins in the finals have been against top 10 players. 

 

67 of these titles resulted in straight set wins. 

 

His first title came in 2001 when he was ranked 27 and just 19 years old. 

 

69 of these titles came from hard court tournaments; 18 were won on grass; 11 won on clay and just 2 won on carpet. 

 

Since turning 30, Roger has won 33 of those titles, proving age and experience sometimes do prevail. 

 

This year, Roger has already captured 2 titles (Dubai and Miami).  

 

Roger will take a couple weeks to recharge his batteries and will be making an appearance during clay court season, with his next tournament to be Madrid!

 

Stay tuned as it will be exciting to watch as his year unfolds and see how many more records the Swiss Maestro can break in 2019. 

 

 

March 31, 2019 -- Miami, FL Roger does it again and adds yet another title to his resume today after winning a decisive final at the Miami Open. Facing big serving John Isner, Roger raced to a quick lead and took the first set with little issues. In what seemed to be one of his easier matches of the week, Isner later called the trainer to help address a foot injury that was clearly hindering him. Staying focused with his eye on the prize, Roger maintained focus and did what he needed to do to get the 6-1, 6-4 win in just over an hour. This is his 4th Miami Title, 28th Masters 1000 Title and 101st Career Title. "It was a dream start, relaxing my nerves [to break in the opening game]," said Roger. "What a week it's been for me. I'm just so happy right now. It's unbelievable. I played here in 1999 for the first time and here I am in 2019. It means a lot to me."
March 29, 2019 -- Miami, FL Experience prevailed over youth in both semifinals at the Miami Open on Friday. After John Isner took out the Canadian teen, Felix Auger-Aliassime to seal his final spot in Miami, Roger later faced another young Canadian, Denis Shapovalov, in the second semifinal. Looking nervous against the veteran, Roger proved too strong and confident and took the match routinely 6-2, 6-4. He reaches his 50th Masters 1000 final, which is the most of any ATP player. He will face John Isner for the chance to win his 28th Masters 1000 title and his 101st career title. “I enjoyed it. I think I played very well. I had to. Because I think when you let Denis play, he's got some serious power, and he gets rhythm going. He can really put you in uncomfortable situations,” Roger said. “So I think I did well, and I'm very happy how I played.”

"There were really long rallies, tactical points. The big points went my way and that was the difference," said Roger. "I'm serving great this week and hope I can keep it up in the next round."
