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.

A champion who has the power and wisdom to show common sense in any event, anywere, anytime, whether he loses or wins - that's a true champion.

And it is read in his eyes.

Roger Federer, there isn't any exemplary as a professional player and person. I am
federista, now and forever. Watching their games is a treat for everyone. Every game is a singular emotion, filling our eyes with its sheer magic strokes, serves, backhand, forehand, etc. I hope to see their games for a long, long time yet, I thank God for giving us Federer, and thank you too , Roger.
