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!

JUST A FLIMSY THOUGHT!

OUR MIGHTY FED WAS SUPPOSED TO COLLIDE IN A BLOCKBUSTER SEMIFINAL AGAINST RAFA NADAL BUT IT DIDN'T HAPPEN. THAT WOULD HAVE BEEN THE FIRST FOR THE LONGEST TIME THEY'RE GONNA BE MEETING BEFORE THE FINAL. SHOULD'VE BEEN VERY IN

Congratulations Roger!
I like very much the fact that you come to the net especially on key moments of the game! With your great hands and sense of the game this should be ( it proved already ) a great weapon against the hard hitters of today's game. Con
