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.

Hi Roger,
As you can see, from yesterday till Today, 46 pages of Congratulations.
You made us very happy for your return.
I guess that you changed many things in your style, and upped a lot your fitness.
I do trust that by next year Wimbeldon, you should be again number ONE.
by the way, it isnt impossible for one simple reason.
Just look around for the numbers 1,2,3 , how are they doing right now.
they depend 100% on their physical fitness, which can never stay the same , even for one year

Hello Roger,
Heartiest congratulations on winning the Paris Bercy title. So good to see the expression on your face after the last ball was hit and the genuine display of happiness. Finally winning this indoor title must make you a happy man. That you win this tournament right now proofs that still anything can be expected of you. I hope you will do well next week in London at the WTF and that you can finish as strong as last year. I wish I could be there.

Always your fan,

Joke

Congrats Roger! Believe me, SEVERIN LUTHI is your real problem. He was not at the tribune yesterday and you won. When he is, it's a bad omen. You'd better fire him.
Go for London and Melbourne!!
