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.

It made the heart sing, your victoroy! And before that, the one over Berdych! I found it especialy meaningful, as these "younger"--not by much--players have made comments that made it clear they had no idea what it does what you have done through the years! A very clear and definitive victoroy, Roger! I love it when things are put aright!
