Philipp Kohlschreiber possesses a dazzling one-handed backhand, which he used to great effect against Andy Roddick in the third round of the 2008 Australian Open. The German’s 6-4, 3-6, 7-6 (9), 6-7 (3), 8-6 win over the then-world No. 6 is one of his career highlights. Kohlschreiber has won five ATP titles on three different surfaces, claiming the 2011 Halle championship on grass three years after falling to Roger Federer in the final. The German won his second Munich title in 2012 and reached the Wimbledon quarterfinals three months later. On May 24, 2014, Kohlschreiber beat Ivo Karlovic to claim his fifth career title at Dusseldorf.
