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.

Beautiful and class tennis from Roger...............As always i thought you will loose the service games after first break in the first set. But you did it like Nadal... Great determination after a long period. I wish you become Number one position very soon with atleast two grandslams.. All the very best dear Roger for the upcoming tournaments mainly against Rafa nd Novak..You do your best always. Everything will come on track....God bless you.. God knows the best tennis who plays.come on Roger
