Title no. 71!

19.02.2012 | Tennis, Starseite 3

Roger showed a great display today to defeat Juan Martin del Potro 6-1, 6-4 in the final of Rotterdam to secure his first title of the year and 71st career title. 

"This title marks a great start to the season," Roger said. "My team made a lot of sacrifices. It's been an amazing week for us. The first set I really was rock solid, while in the second it was more tight and he had his chances," Roger said. A break in the sixth game of the second set was enough edge for Roger to bring home the victory and his second title in Rotterdam after 2005.

After a week's break, Roger will continue his quest for 2012 titles at the ATP-500 tournament in Dubai which starts February 27. He reached the final there last year, but was defeated by Novak Djokovic.

A belated Congratulations on your win against Del Potro. You played a brilliant match. With the repertiote of shots in your arsenal, Del Potro was never able to get a rhythm to his game. Semi final match with Davydenko was a good pre-curser.

Hmmmm...Rotterdam could chip-in a bit more money for a better trophy. Don't you think ?

I have been 'off-the-grid' in South Africa. No computer.

With you always.
