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.

Dear Roger,

Congratulations, Roger!!!
I am so glad of your great achievement.
Since I went out, I couldn’t watch the match on a live TV.
I shouted instinctively with joy when I knew the result by reading the newspaper in the lobby at the hotel.

Roger, always remember that you are the greatest player ever. Keep that in mind and play. Then you will not stop with 9 but you will proceed to three times that. All the best for all your forthcoming matches.

Divya.
