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.

Desde Colombia, dos de tus fans, leales, adoramos tu tecnica y tu deportivismo te saludamos y te felicitamos por este nuevo triunfo en el torneo de maestros. Eres un ejemplo de ser humano, por tu deporte, por tu sencillez, por tu carisma.
Gracias a la inspiración que nos diste, decidimos, aunque un poco tarde (tenemos 57 y 48 años respectivamente) tomar clases de tenis. Estamos muy felices practicando este deporte, con nuestra hija menor y con una nietecita a la cual ayudamos económicamente.
