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!

Wonderful win, Roger! Davydenko was playing well, so all the better. It all builds on last autumn. I can't see anyone beating you at the Australian Open except you yourself! The rest haven't the ammunition, not even Rafa, if you play well. I've always believed you only lose if you don't play well rather than the other person really beating you and that applies in your games with Rafa too.

Poor Rafa, though, sorry he was feeling so ill at Doha.
