Two questions, Roger

19.11.2006 | Tennis

Roger, you played a magnificent final. Could you tell us about it?

“From the first two games on I felt this could turn out to be a very good day for me. I hit the balls well; especially backhand long-line where I felt very confident. I was sure from an early point on that I was playing particularly well. After that, I managed to hold a high level during the entire match – which is actually my greatest satisfaction. The way I played from the baseline is actually quite unbelievable, just about everything I tried worked. The final was definitely one of the best matches of my career, maybe even my best.”


With this victory you have crowned a fantastic season. Maybe even your best?

“Yes, absolutely. This has been an exceptional year without injuries and with superb victories. I cannot find the words to describe this season. It would have been hard to have done better that this. I always tried to give my best during every tournament. But, I did manage to surprise myself. I am also happy to have survived this autumn with Tokyo, the Davis Cup and all. To finish off with a victory at the Masters, extending such an important series of victories (29) – that’s the best conclusion of this incredible season I could have hoped for. I will give everything to continue this way next year.”

James looked totally lost. Before your match, I hoped you will start strong and i

roger do you practice any type of mental or spiritual dicipline like yoga kind or something ?, because the most impresive thing from you is your actitude, calmness and consistency at the highest level on the court in any kind of situation.
