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.

Hello Roger,

Congratulations on your 5th title in Dubai and playing an excellent tournament once again. I am happy to see that the old rule still applies: confidence comes by winning and winning gives you confidence. It is a pleasure to watch you in such superb form, staying calm and winning convincingly. I can't wait to see well you will do this month in the USA.
I wish you great fun for the Exho in New York and all the very best for Indian Wells.
