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.

Congratulations ! Again ! You played an excellent tournament. Sublime serving, great returns, graceful volleys and powerful forehand and backhand shots with minimal unforced errors. Well done.

Now... on to London. Hope to see you at the semis & final @ the O2 Arena. Good luck at the Masters'. By the way, have purchased your Leonardo Da Vinci tickets @ the National Gallery yet ? With you...always.

Great analysis from Peter Bodo about the "Roger on fire" !

Roger I am a tennis player I love many

Congrats Roger!! Without dropping a set!!! You come out on top each time you play aggressive, focused, and serving well. And that's exactly what happened this time. Furthermore, your unforced errors were amazingly minimal. I don't know whether lesser unforced errors could win matches, but, I know for sure, unforced errors could ruin matches & break hearts aplenty. Good luck for London as well... With love, Gladson... your all-time fan & friend... take care...
