He also enjoyed particular success in 1970, again reaching the semi-finals of Wimbledon, where he achieved a big upset win over defending champion Rod Laver en route, and the semi-finals of the Australian Open. Roger also reached the semi-finals at Wimbledon in 1967. His career-high ATP singles ranking was World No. 11, though he was ranked World No. 8 in 1970 before the ATP rankings began.
