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.

Tsk Tsk, so much for the "new Andy Roddick," he looked the same to me, stumbling and bumbling at the baseline trying to return your balls, he got the same old result.... another loss. Way to go Fed!! It was so nice to hear that support system at the Ope

Dear Roger,

I watched your game live! What a match! Congrats... As I always say: THERE CAN ONLY BE ONE KING :)

side note: when you take a comfortable lead (which you always do), please try and go for the kill, and not let players back into the match
