It seems that playing a few lower-level tournaments is Roger Federer's way of slowly gaining momentum and confidence for the big ones. In Stockholm, on Sunday, the Swiss took out Florian Mayer 6-4, 6-3 to capture his 64th career title, tying Pete Sampras for 4th on the all time titles list, behind only Jimmy Connors, Ivan Lendl and John McEnroe. While the win probably says little to what R-Fed's current form is, it's still crucial for the world number 2 to go into the final few tournaments of the season with a vengeance after being handled quite easily by the world's best as of late.
Conrats Rog! Keep it up!
