Roger Wins Madrid Masters, 10th Title

22.10.2006 | Tennis

Roger won his first Madrid Masters and 10th title of the season with a 7-5, 6-1, 6-0 victory over Fernando Gonzalez.

 

The world number one had to battle hard in the first set but then crushed his Chilean opponent in the next two to claim victory.

 

Roger became the first player in the Open era to win 10 titles in three straight years. He moved ahead of Pete Sampras with his 12th Masters series title second only to Andre Agassi's 17.

 

Roger didn't drop a set in Madrid while winning his 19th straight match and third straight final.

 

"I missed the last two editions because of fatigue and injury and it was great to come here again and win the tournament. It is a great day in my career," said Roger.
