Masters title number 6!

27.11.2011 | Tennis, Starseite 3

Roger secured a sixth title at the ATP World Tour Finals thanks to a 6-3, 6-7(6), 6-3 victory in a spectacular match against Jo-Wilfried Tsonga !

 

"I couldn't be more happy, I couldn't be more exhausted," Roger said. "I can't be happier with the way the season has finished."

Roger had to overcome a threat from Tsonga in the middle of the match as his opponent broke our champ as he served for the match at a set and 5-4 up. And also later, as Roger was about to wrap up the tie-break, the Frenchman saved a match point before leveling at one set all.

But as in the first set, Roger broke Tsonga again in the eighth game of the decider and made no mistake when he served for the championship for the second time.

With Roger's triumph in his 100th final today he is now also the alone record holder for titles at the ATP World Tour Finals, leaving Ivan Lendl and Pete Sampras behing him. The title today is his 70th career title!

Roger is now off to a well deserved holiday before taking up his training in Dubai.

Roger,

I was so very happy yesterday! Despite the excellence of your shots, I was most impressed with your composure after the heat of the second set. After a difficult year with some painfully-close losses, I for one was certainly worried; the fact that you were able to meet those challenges and doubts, though, is a testament to your brilliance and resolve. It inspires me to believe you can win in Australia, reclaim No.1, and enjoy a remarkable 2012.

Have a merry Christmas, champ,

Jamie

Well done Roger! I watched you win LIVE. Well done !!

I said the following when Roger was down and some people & some journalists tried to step on him, and I said the same things when Roger was up.

Roger will:
1.win 20 Slams or more totally
2. win 2012 Olympics
3. regain No. 1
4. play till at least 2016 Brazil Olympics
5. win Wimbledon again.

Those who tried to step on him have now winessed his triumphs - they should now behave themselves.

Roger - many congratulations on a truly great win! Towards the end of the second set and during the tie break, my heart was in my mouth somehow as Tsonga appeared to have momentum but it was not to be and you timed it perfectly in the third set to break his serve and then take the match.

Roll on the Aussie Open but first a good rest is due and then more training I guess.

Very best wishes to you, your family and your team who all helped to "peak" your performances.
