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.

What wonderful tennis you played! Congrats on a terrific win for the title! Glad you had a nice time there in Rotterdam after these many years away.

Yes, a great start to the season with hopefully more titles to come this year, Roger.

Looking forward to seeing you in Dubai in a week's time and enjoying more of your excellent talents and your smiling face!

A quick rest and transition to outdoors. Cheers to you and your team and especially to your lovely wife and daughters!

A perfect start to the long hard court season. The backhand slice was more aggressive, the masterful ability to save break points was once again displayed. Another title in Dubai will be a fantasic duo and with this kind of committed performance, it is reasonable.
