Fifth title in Basel

06.11.2011 | Tennis, Starseite 3

Roger captured a record fifth title in his hometown Basel today, defeating Kei Nishikori 6-1, 6-3.

"It's great to win at home again," said Roger. "Kei put up a good fight,. I've known ever since I hit with him as a teenager that he could have a good future. He's had some injuries but he's playing well now. It was a good match and I'm very happy for the win."

Nishikori started strong on his own serve but Roger broke with three winners. He then dropped just one point in the opening set. Roger also raced through the second set and though Nishikori had come from a set down against Djokovic, our champ did not give him a chance of a comeback. He closed the match with his first matchball after one hour and 22 minutes.

Roger will now head to Paris for the last event of the ATP season -  the Masters 1000 in Paris-Bercy. After one week off, the ATP finals in London will end this year's season.

Hello Roger,
How wonderful to watch you play some of your best tennis once again. Congratulations on your 5th title in Basel. I am happy to hear that you are feeling so well. Other top players can learn a lot from the way you take care of your health and fitness.
I hope you can finish the year well and that you will be able to improve your result in Paris this year.

I wish you all the very best for your first match this afternoon.

After a terribly difficult week, the loss of two loved ones in two days, you gave me a reason to smile.
Congratulations on an excellent tournament.
Good luck going forward in Paris, and London.
Afterwards enjoy the holidays, and we will see you in 2012.

Hey Roger,
it's great to see you've won in Basel, at home, again. You played so focused and agressive, so you deserved to raise up the trophy again. I'm really happy for you!

Title number 68 after a difficult season, but you feel confident enough to claim for a place between the favourites in Paris.
Congratulations and thanks for being awesome.
