Federer flying after 'rock solid' triumph (ESPN.co.uk)

Juan Martin del Potro was left to rue a host of missed chances after suffering a straight-sets defeat to Roger Federer in the final of the World Tennis Tournament in Rotterdam on Sunday. "In the first set, I was rock solid. I played great from start to finish," Federer said. "In the second set, it got tighter. I'm happy I was able to sneak it out. He couldn't pull the trigger the way he wanted to. Just like yesterday [against Davydenko], I had a good mindset. I really believed I was going to make it difficult for him, especially on the break points. I know the second set could have been a whole lot different."

Roger Federer extended his streak of winning at least one title on the men's tour to 12 seasons by beating Juan Martin del Potro in the ABN AMRO World Tennis Tournament final. "It's nice to pick up the momentum after the indoor season I had last year," Federer, who finished 2011 by winning titles in Basel, Paris and London, told reporters. "I really enjoyed myself here and saved my best for last."

Roger: I think dubai has one of the toughest draws in years, however each big player on the torunament has already lost to you in the past, time to refresh their memory once more, crush them all and let them know that the champ is here and will be here all year long claiming titles everywhere he plays.

Well, i think your draw at Dubai is a little bit tough, but at least it's easier than the upper side of the draw where Novak and Murray would clash in the semifinal. So work hard champ. Your matches aren't going to be easy, but each win will give u more confidence as it will be against tough opponents.
Good luck champ, and i hope you win the title coz you deserve it.
Greetings from Egypt.

Hope you have started your preparation for Dubai.Please make a strategy to overcome unforced errors to gain crucial points . You need to add more power to your serve and forehand and eliminate backhand errors. we know you can do it
Wish you all the best in Dubai
