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.

Keep it up Roger!! I must say I am very pleased with how you are going back to mixing up the slice to setup your shots. Overall, I would say this helps your game the most when playing the top players...especially the ones that need to get down low to deal with that shot!! Keep it up and all the best in Dubai.
