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.

My dearest Roger, I'm so happy to see you winning again. With this victory, I hope you've killed all your inner demons and you understood that no one, absolutely no one can stand in your way when you have the right mentality.

Set your eyes on the majors next year and improve your galactic record. And remember, the whole world is behind you, you are so loved and appreciated by every single tennis and sports fan in the world!

God bless you, my dear!

Other than your brilliant tennis, your mental toughness stands out the most in this tournament. You are really inspiring. What can I say. You are doing all the right things that a person can do.
