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.

Genius Federer again. Federer was fantastic in the finals. He played superb tennis. RN had no answers to the Roger's shots. Roger is amazing, fantastic, superb, genius, smart and best player on the planet. Federer proved again that when he is in his best form he can been any player on the planet. He has really improved his game, shots like Aggressive backhand crosscourt winners, Forehand winners, well disguised drop shots which stunned Nadal in the final.

Best of Luck RF for the 2011 season.

Though, Fed has lost many matches against Rafa, & H2H is 8-14 (2331 points to 2361 points); the difference in total points they have won till date from all 22 matches is only 30, that makes 7 game points only. So, H2H doesn't reflect exactly what it is in fact in their number of winning points. 30 pt difference could happen in single match.

Another interesting fact is that Roger has won more points in 3 of his lost matches 1. Aus Open 09 2. Rome Masters 06 and 3. Dubai 06 (All final)
