Third Madrid title!

13.05.2012 | Tennis, Starseite 3

Roger captured a third title in Madrid after defeating Tomas Berdych 3-6, 7-5, 7-5 in the final. It is Roger's 74th title overall on the ATP Tour!

 

"It is amazing to win here again," said Roger. "It has been a tough tournament. Tough to move, but you've got to try to make the most of it. Here there was some good tennis and some bad tennis, but you see that in all tournaments."

It was a rough, windy road to Roger's fourth title of the 2012 season. After ups and downs in the first two set, Roger had to save himself from 0:30 down several times, but eventually breaking Berdych to take a 5-3 lead. But the Czech came back with a break right away and Roger made use of the very last chance for a break to wrap up the match after 2 hours 36.

Roger now counts 20 career Masters titles, tying him with Rafael Nadal for the most all-time. Furthermore, our champ will overtake Nadal for No. 2 in the world as of tomorrow.

I'm able to watch you everywhere with my new lap-top.
I'm hitting all the balls together with you!
I'm running back and forth and sideways with you!
I'm sometimes having difficulty to breathe,
But never give up.
You have a goal now.
To gain #1 spot again.
I will feel #1 like you.
I'm in Rome with you,
I'm in Paris with you,
I'm in Wimbledon with you..
And of course
In the Olympics with you.
You will be on the top again.
And I will share it with millions.
But I am 59
Not much time
