63rd tournament title!

22.08.2010 | Tennis

Roger celebrated his fourth Cincinnati Masters and 63rd career title with a 6-7(5), 7-6(1), 6-4 win over Mardy Fish today.

 

Roger is only the fourth player to capture four titles in Cincinnati (after 2005, 2007 and 2009).

He dominated the first set but was unable to convert any of his four break-points - taking the set into a tie-break. Everything looked good as he took a 5-4 lead, only to slip two mini-breaks behind and then let his American opponent serve for the set. It was then Fish who had the only break-point of the second set, which he in turn did not profit from. Roger was at his best in the second tie-break of the match, leaving Fish no chance at all. It looked as though the final set would again lead to a tie-break, when Roger thrilled tennis-fans with several stunning points, securing a break to take a 5-4 lead and finally the match.

 

Roger certainly proved that he is ready for the US Open which starts on August 30th!

Congratulations Roger. The best way to prepare for US Open is defending a last year's Cincy title. Take a rest, and then slam them all.

We want you to capture the 17th grand slam in New York. Good luck at Flushing Meadows.

Congratulations on your fantastic win over Fish!!! It was certainly a very close match and both served exceptionally well to hod serve!!! So nice of you to say that both deserved to win as it was only one break of serve that actually made the difference!
