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.

This was a huge victory ! Winning the 02 reinforced Roger's position as the most solid, most skilled and as the best tennis player on the planet !
He had said that on a good day " he could beat them all " the press laughed !
But Roger came through, knocking them all down, one at a time in his inimitable
style. He saved Nadal for the "piece de resistance " and ASTOUNDED THE WORLD.
WE FANS ARE JUBILANT ! we never doubted our beloved champ and he rewarded our trust.
HE OVERCAME ! THANK YOU ROG

Yeah Roger. I was soooooo happy to see you win!!!

You played a great match and totally deserved the win. Back to your winning ways I see and closing the head to head against Nadal ;) I knew you could beat him and I knew you had the game, you just had to believe and play aggressively which you did.
