Title number 67!

08.01.2011 | Tennis, Starseite 3

Roger made a perfect start into the 2011 season by beating Nikolay Davydenko 6-3, 6-4 in the final of the Qatar Open.

"It does feel great," Roger said to winning his 67th career title. "I can't believe the season is under way and I'm already on the board with a title."

Roger raced to a 3-0 lead and saw another half dozen break-points before he took the first set with ease. The second set proved a tighter affair but Roger took advantage of the first break point that came his way at 4-4 and served out the match. Once again, he did not allow his opponent a single break. It is his third title in Doha after 2005 and 2006.

Our champ will now head to Melbourne for the Australian Open which starts on January 17 - perhaps the perfect date to start his quest for Grand Slam title number 17!

Many congratulations dear Roger on your peRFect start to 2011! Fantastic level of play from you in the Doha final. I love how you book-ended 2010 with the Australian Open to open it, and the World Tour Finals to close it. You've already won the first tournament of 2011. May you book-end this year in similar style to 2010, with a boatload of titles in between, including four Grand Slams, why not? No pressure... I wish you the very best of everything good in the Australian Open. T'es le MEILLEUR!
