Roger wins World Tour Finals!

28.11.2010 | Tennis, Starseite 3

Roger defeated Rafael Nadal at the ATP World Tour Finals in London 6-3, 3-6 and 6-1 today, defeating the current number one of the world at the inofficial World Championships! 

 

Roger has won the prestigious season-ending-event five times now after his last victory in 2007. He certainly proved that he is hot for the 2011 season. "I am already looking forward to the training starting beginning of December. The start of the season won't be easy as I will have to defend my title at the Australian Open, my only Grand Slam title this year. And staying uninjured will also be an important aspect," Roger said.

Roger played his absolute best today, attacking with his forehand and serving well throughout almost the entire match. After the two players split the first two sets, each breaking the other's serve once, Roger had the first opportunity to break in the third set when Nadal sent a forehand wide in the fourth game. Our champ then took advantage of a second serve to race the net and Nadal drove a forehand pass wide to give Roger a 3-1 lead. Roger then held serve and gained two break points in the next game. He needed just one to grab a commanding 5-1 lead after Nadal netted a backhand. He then opened a 40-0 lead in the final game before Nadal won a point, but Roger smacked a forehand past the Spaniard, not sure whether it was in or not at first, celebrating his victory as he saw the linesman's hands were still held together.

Congratulations,Roger, for the superb tennis you have played all week at the WTF 2010, and for lifting the trophy. It was a privilege to see you playing your beautiful game at its best again. There are many excellent tennis players out there. But there is only one genius of the game, and that is you. May God bless you with inspiration, serenity & conviction in 2011 & enable you to continue to play your best tennis. Amen. ONWARDS ROGER! Always.

Are you still basking in afterglow? You should be...it was a brilliantly played finals match against Nadal. Congratulations, Rodger. Wished I was there to see it live. A great way to end the season. You must be elated. So happy for you.

Your tennis has reached a different plateau since your collaboration with Paul Annacone. A good marriage (sort of speak).

Hope to see you next time you are in England.

Have a Merry Christmas & Happy New Year !

Hello to everyone, I am just wondering if the final has been downloaded here. I looked yesterday, but there definitely is too much to go through. If it has, I would appreciate if someone would tell me the page, please. Thank you and have a good Christmas and a wonderful 2011.
