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.
