Fourth title in Basel

07.11.2010 | Tennis, Starseite 3

Roger captured a record fourth title in his hometown Basel today, defeating Novak Djokovic 6-4, 3-6, 6-1.

"It was a fantastic week, I played well from start to finish. The final was the most dangerous of the week, especially playing Novak. But I was able to pull away in the third set," Roger said.

Both players had the same number of break point chances in the first set, but it was only Roger who managed to convert one of his to take the lead. Djokovic was more opportunistic than Roger in the second and it was soon clear the he was going to tie in sets as Roger just commited too many errors. Very early in the third set, Roger still committed a large number of unforced errors, but this time Djokovic was unable to take advantage. Roger went all the way to treat himself and his home crowd to a record fourth title in Basel.

With his victory in Basel, Roger has now moved past Pete Sampras with 65 career singles titles. Ahead of him are now only John McEnroe (77), Ivan Lendl (94) and Jimmy Connors (109). He will now head to Paris as top seed - as Rafael Nadal will not be playing - for the last event of the ATP season.
