5th title in Dubai

03.03.2012 | Tennis, Starseite 3

Roger showed a great display today to defeat Andy Murray 7-5, 6-4 in the final to secure his fifth title in Dubai and his 72nd career title.

"It's beautiful winning this" Roger said. "I've had a great start to the season, and a great finish to last season, so I hope I can keep it up. But there are a lot of guys who are going to play tremendous as well."

It has been a tight opening set and both players were in excellent condition. A break in game no. eleven was just enough to take the opening set after 52 minutes. In the second set, Roger scored an early break to take a 3-1 lead but Murray responded with a re-break shortly after. After another break on Murray's serve at 4-4 Roger was then able to serve out the match, which he did with his second matchball - winning the Dubai trophy for the fifth time.

Next up is the BNP Paribas Showdown in New York on Monday where Roger will play Andy Roddick.

I knew Rog could do it, even against Djoko.

I hoped he could do it for his own plans.

I watched him do it Live on TV.

I'm happy he succeeded.

Well done Roger!

Long ago I said; and I still say Rog will:
1. Win Wimbledon again
2. Reach 20 GS Victories at least
3. Win Olympics this year
4. Play till 2016 Brazil Olympics

All of you who support and more importantly believe in Roger, say YEH!!
