Roger makes it nine!

11.09.2006 | Tennis

Roger controlled every facet of play in the final of the US Open, celebrating a 6-2, 4-6, 7-5, 6-1 victory over Andy Roddick for his third major championship this year and ninth of his career.

Asked to rate his own play, Roger commented "It was absolutely fantastic. I have played great matches throughout the whole tournament." Tiger Woods was a guest in Roger's box, having promised to attend the match should Roger reach the final.

Roger is now the first man since Ivan Lendl in 1985-87 to win three consecutive U.S. Open titles - and the only man in tennis history (even before the open era) to win Wimbledon and the U.S. Open back-to-back three years in a row.

And he did it in such impressive fashion, out-acing the big-serving Roddick 17-7 and compiling a 69-33 edge in winners. Roger won a stunning eight of the last nine games.

Just managed to watch the final - recorded on Sunday and you were fantastic. Your game was incredible and you did indeed make history. My kind heart meant that I had to spare a thought for Andy; I have never seen such hopeless disappointment expressed

Dear Roger,
Food for thought:

4 Wimbledons
3 US Opens
2 Australian Opens
....
1 Roland-Garros ?

I wish the prophecy will fulfill itself !!!!!!!!!!!
Keep being as hungry as you are for all your fans around the world (a fast growing population!)

I had no doubt that you will win
But I must say that, in the final I think Andy Roddick played the best match of his life, and he would have beaten anyone else that day....Except you.....

Dearest Roger,

What is there to say that hasn't been said? You know who you are, what you have achieved, and that's one of the many things that make you so special - you don't hide from yourself. But I love praising you over and over again, even if I
