First title in Paris-Bercy

13.11.2011 | Tennis, Starseite 3

Roger captured the 69th title of his career thanks to a 6-1, 7-6(3) victory over Jo-Wilfried Tsonga at the ATP-1000 tournament in Paris today!

 

"I've been waiting for this for a long time," Roger said. "I'm really happy to have finally made it."

Roger played Tsonga for the sixth time this year and clearly took control this time, winning the first five games before closing out the first set in just 30 minutes. The second set went without a break. The tie-break was all Roger, who won the first four points and opened a 6-1 lead before finally ending it on his third match point.

Roger is only the seventh male player in the Open Era (since 1968) to win 800 matches. Furthermore, next to the 802 wins he has a total of 18 career Masters titles.

Roger will carry a 12-match winning streak into the ATP World Tour Finals, which open next Sunday in London.

Roger, mille félicitations! This is shaping up to be a truly wonderful end to 2011. Two titles in a row (soon to be three, I hope) and the two best awards - fans' favourite once again (of course) and the Stefan Edberg Sportsmanship Award, which you deserve more than any other. Your fellow players took the right decision this time. Congrats!

C O N G R A T U L A T I O N S ! ! !

Your performance the whole tournament was terrific, you simply play like what you are "THE BEST OF ALL TIME"; with such a high level you can beat anyone you want... best wishes for your next challenge.

Ferrer is the weakest of the 8. And Tsonga again, no offence, but I am quite tired of you vs him, it's like 09-10 season and drawing Soderling over and over again. You need to beat Nadal, because Tsonga can produce a one-match stunner and it better be against Nadal and not you. Glad Berdych and Murray are in Djoker's half. He should 'shoulder' that responsibility ;)
