Roger wins Swiss encounter

11.10.2012 | Tennis, Starseite 2

Roger won his second match at the Shanghai Rolex Masters against his friend Stanislas Wawrinka 4-6, 7-6, 6-0. The victory means that Roger has now secured his 300th week as world no. 1!

Wawrinka had a better start into the match, capturing the first set. The second set proved a tough fight between the two friends, with Roger eventually winning the tie-breaker. In the third set, Wawrinka was unable to match Roger's game.

With today's victory, Roger set a new milestone in tennis history: he will be celebrating his 300th week as world no. 1 on Monday.

On Friday, Roger will meet Croatia's Marin Cilic (ATP 16) in the quarter final. Roger leads the head-to-head 3-0.

Congratulations on yet another wish fullfilled for you and your fans, you reached the nice well rounded number of 300 wks at #1. You totally deserved it. I am so happy the 3rd set was quick, credit also goes to Stan for that, and you're not tired and spent for tomorrow. I am so happy and celebrating with you.. Hope all goes your way tomorrow as well.

Congrats on coming through this tough match, Roger! I’m very happy for you! A pity for Stan though, he really played well those first 2 sets, losing the breaker just took the wind out of his sails.

So…300 weeks at #1! Another great achievement which I expect will never be equaled. You give us RF admirers so many happy smiles. Thank you, again, for all the hard work & sacrifices you’ve made year in & year out. We’re all so pleased & proud of you! All the best for the rest of the tourna
