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.

Hey Champ, looks like your mental block against Nadal is slowly vanishing. It's a very positive sign for us fans. But still not completely gone that is evident in the second set. It should have been straight sets. I'm sure you are working towards it. Just look at him as another top 10 player when you play him. He doesn't possess gifted tennis artistry like you does but can fight till the last point. That's what you need to work on. Don't get frustrated and give up the set. Enjoy your vacation!

You were great, champ! Two the last matches were the best in this year. Maybe the match against Djoko was better than the final because of your constant performance. -Now you've proved that your backhand drive can be better than Nadal's forehand and backhand drive altogether. Good luck and skill for the next season. Keep the fire burning!
