7th title in Wimbledon

08.07.2012 | Tennis, Starseite 3

Roger won today’s Wimbledon final against Andy Murray 4-6, 7-5, 6-3, 6-4, capturing his 17th Grand Slam title and regaining the no. 1 spot in the world ranking!

"This is a magic moment for me." Roger said after the match, holding the trophy. "I couldn't be any happier. I had a tough time in the last years. This victory is just coming at the right time."

Roger equalled Pete Sampras' record at the All England Club with a seventh Wimbledon title. He also equalled another Sampras-record by regaining world no. 1 tomorrow: 286 weeks on top of the ATP world ranking. "This is unbelievable: Sampras is my hero", said Roger.

Murray had a better start and broke Roger in the first game of the first set. Roger made a lot of unforced errors and seemed a bit nervous. The second set was much more even. After the players returned from a rain interruption, Roger was unstoppable and converted his second match-ball after 3:24 hours of play.

Roger,
you are so incredible as a tennis player, as a gentleman, as a humanist, and as a great person. Congratulations on another victory, and another GS title. You have set up the new tennis standards, and the new chapter in tennis history. You can be so proud of that, and we (your supporters) can be so proud to live in your time, watching your best tennis. And also watching you celebrating again. :) We wish you all the best for the upcoming London Olympics. Good luck, and make us proud again!

Dearest Roger

I admire you deeply and I am incredibly happy for this title of yours. It was very emotional seen that you could share this Grand Slam with your daughters, which was a dream you had expressed a few years ago.

You have been a legend for quite a good time now, the legend just got bigger. Many congratulations, champ! Enjoy the moment.

I look forward to the Olympics and the US Open!!!!!!
