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.

Hi Roger,

Congratulations on your win. This is the Roger that I have been waiting to see. You really spanked Nadal and your backhand was offensive. You also attacked when you needed to. You played with no uncertainty and the result is a win. I hope you continue on this path next year because you are better than anybody in the TOUR. By the way, I like your old website, maybe I will get used to this one.

(Roger the Great contd.) "It’s been an amazing career. The memories I take away from this are much greater than all the money I won.” Roger, I love what you said. I wish you play forever and ever.

Have a wonderful time off. I will keep watching your matches over and over again and wait for the king to return. My best regards and love to you.

(Roger the Great contd.) because you are the most complete player. There is nobody like you. Your play is so perfect, so beautiful, graceful, artistic and so powerful.

Roger, I read in ATP site, this is what you said, “I have no plans at all – stopping, quitting, whatever you want to call it. Hope I can play for many more years to come. [I] enjoy it and take pleasure out of traveling the world, playing against the best, challenging myself in practice and so forth." (contd.)
