73rd career title!

18.03.2012 | Tennis, Starseite 3

Roger captured a record fourth title in Indian Wells today, beating John Isner 7-6(7) 6-3. 

There was not much between the players in the start and it proved a tough battle with no breaks, taking the opening set it into a tie break. Roger spurned two opportunities to take the set in the breaker before finally doing so at the third attempt with a clinical serve and volley.
In the seventh game of the second set, Roger converted the first of two break points to take a deserved lead. And Roger continued in style to break Isner in his next service game to seal the victory and once again make history. 

Roger has now won 39 of his last 41 matches, has equalled Rafael Nadal's record of 19 Masters 1000-titles and only lies four victories behing John McEnroe (third in the ranking) with a total of 73 career titles.

I'VE SHOUTED THIS OUT DURING YOUR MATCH THE LAST 2 YEARS SEEING YOU IN THE SEMIS IN INDIAN WELLS, AND I DON'T KNOW IF YOU HEAR ME OR EVEN PAY ATTENTION TO THE CROWD,

BUT I HOPE NADAL HEARS THIS. I HOPE DJOKOVIC HEARS THIS. I HOPE MURRAY AND ALL THE OTHER PLAYERS HEAR IT.

I HOPE THE CROWD AND ALL THE PEOPLE WATCHING ON TV HEAR IT.

I BELIEVE IN THIS AND WILL ALWAYS PROCLAIM:

[[[LONG LIVE KING FEDERER!!!]]]

ROGER, ONE MORE THING. DURING BASEL, PARIS, AND LONDON END OF LAST YEAR, GUYS LIKE NADAL AND MURRAY WERE SAYING HOW YOU WON B/C IT WAS INDOORS, HOW YOU DON'T LIKE PLAYING IN THE WIND. I'M SO GLAD YOU BEAT BOTH MURRAY AND RAFA IN THE PAST FEW TOURNAMENTS. AS YOU'VE SAID BEFORE YOU TRY TO IMPROVE YOUR GAME EVERY YEAR, AND YOU'VE CLEARLY MADE CHANGES TO YOUR GAME TO MAXIMIZE YOUR STRENGTHS. EVEN AFTER 16 GRAND SLAMS. YOUR LOVE FOR THIS SPORT SHINES BRIGHT AND IT'S A BEAUTIFUL THING.
