Rojer Celebrates 200th Match Win

Toronto, Canada

Jean-Julien Rojer reached a milestone on Tuesday at the Rogers Cup in Toronto, recording his 200th match win as he teamed up with Horia Tecau to defeat Feliciano Lopez and Jurgen Melzer 6-4, 6-4.

“It felt good, I honestly didn’t know until I got off the court,” admitted Rojer. “It feels nice. I was obviously only concerned about winning this match after a long week last week. That’s never easy.”

Rojer and Tecau won the Citi Open on Sunday, their second title in their past three tournaments, and their fifth title of the season overall. They came into Toronto at No. 7 in the Emirates ATP Doubles Team Rankings.

“Luckily for me, I’ve had great partners along the way and I’ve enjoyed my time with each and everyone one of them, and they helped me to reach 200 wins,” said Rojer.
