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.

Many many congratulations Roger the Great for your fifth year end title. You are the greatest. I am so happy, so proud of you. When you play like this, nobody can stop you. Nadal is very disappointed that he could not win this one, he could not do anything against you. Please don’t let him win against you anymore. Your losing head to head against him bothers me very much. I always know and believe that you are the best and always better than Nadal in any court because... (continued)

Always, always, Roger, you can do this, or in best of three matches, against Nadal, in various combination of tactics and strategies. It does remind me when earlier in your career Roddick and Hewitt and Baghdatis could defeat you, but once you gathered all your skills under the command of your emotions, and knew what to use when, they could not defeat you, had trouble playing you, or won against you quite rarely. A similar thing can happen here: you have the tools, power, quickness, strategies.

Better later than never I want to congratulate Roger on this perfect end of the season.
What an incredible week it has been in London and nobody deserved the title more as him.
Unbelievable how fast the year has been - it seems like yesterday that we celebrated Roger's triumph in Australia.
Hope Roger and his loved ones will have a great rest and vacation but afterwards it will be time already again to prepare for the new season which we are all all looking forward to.
