7th title in Wimbledon

08.07.2012 |

Roger won today’s Wimbledon final against Andy Murray 4-6, 7-5, 6-3, 6-4, capturing his 17th Grand Slam title and regaining the no. 1 spot in the world ranking!

"This is a magic moment for me." Roger said after the match, holding the trophy. "I couldn't be any happier. I had a tough time in the last years. This victory is just coming at the right time."

Roger equalled Pete Sampras' record at the All England Club with a seventh Wimbledon title. He also equalled another Sampras-record by regaining world no. 1 tomorrow: 286 weeks on top of the ATP world ranking. "This is unbelievable: Sampras is my hero", said Roger.

Murray had a better start and broke Roger in the first game of the first set. Roger made a lot of unforced errors and seemed a bit nervous. The second set was much more even. After the players returned from a rain interruption, Roger was unstoppable and converted his second match-ball after 3:24 hours of play.
