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.

Loved the re-discovered attacking backhand crosscourt and down the line shots with plenty of movement in the air. You've been keeping these shots in hibernation over the last 2 years!! It added so much firepower against Nadal pinning and jamming him on his backhand side, with those great short crosscourt winners leaving him stranded. Deuce court wide 1st serve stat so impressive - only lost 1 or 2 points on it throughout whole tournament.

2011 will be great year - stay healthy and happy!

This time the background color of your website didn't changed during unofficial World Championship. I though it would change its color to blue or green. I noticed such changes in color of the background of your website during Grand Slam Tournament.

Australian - Blue
French - Red
Wimbledon - Green
US - Blue
