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.

Fantastic! You played a brilliantly thought out and tactical match: you have definitely got the measure of him. Very happy day for you and all your fans - hope you have some rest and relaxation over the next week. Good luck for Dubai. On the point situation: is this to do with winning Doha last year and only going to quarters this year and so they've taken those points away from the 500 he won? Never, mind, extra points anyway; it all counts. Love to our champ, xxxxx
