Officially Number One

04.05.2004 | Tennis

Roger was officially crowned world number one on Monday in a ceremony on centre court at the Telecom Masters in Rome. He was handed a very special trophy by ATP Europe director Horst Klosterkemper. The trophy, made by Waterford Crystal, bears the names of past world number ones. It is always awarded by the ATP during a major tournament - this year it was the turn of the Telecom Italia Masters. "I have realized a dream becoming number one," Roger told the centre court crowd. He is the 24th number one since the ranking began, and the first Swiss player to make the grade. And today Roger once again demonstrated why he deserves the trophy – beating Börkmann 7-6, 6-3.
