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.

Of course we are very happy that you won so handily in Dubai.

However, I am concerned about the errors that you make with your forehand volley.
It needs work! Who agrees with me?

2-Let this triumph fill you with energy. Now have fun at the Madison Square Garden how cool! Make sure to exclusively enjoy it! Relax.

It is great that you were calm at the final, of course sometimes it is very difficult to do, but if you think about it, there's no reason why not to be, all the anxiety and the pressure you may feel have no purpose because anyway you can't solve the situation in advance and when you're actually playing you have the capacity to then work it out.

3-Be free and live in peace don't carry on your shoulders emotions that aren't necessary just take them off, focus on the positive and keep trusting yourself.

It doesn't matter how strong the other players are coming, actually I think it is part of the fun of the competition, to fight against someone who wants to win too and that presents you with a challenge.
