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.

Whoohoo Roger, 300 weeks confirmed, wonderful and really puts you out on your own and joining the females in the 300+ club!!! Great win, sorry for Stan but he was actually outplaying you for nearly 2 sets so very well done to you. Hope you are feeling very well physically, thought your movement was suspect a lot of the time today, hope your back/hip aren't bothering you. Lots and lots of love and best wishes to you and Paul. Good luck for tomorrow. xxxxx

Way to go Roger. 300 weeks and counting. Don't Stop Now! Show them who is the No 1 of all time (and lift that trophy at the end of the week BTW)

CONGRATULATIONS, DEAR ROGER!!! That was a very tough match, and we know Stan is a very dangerous opponent. You certainly looked a bit rusty the first two sets, but we admire you for that exact ability - to hang in there, dig deep, give your best, and come through! I'm sure it bodes well for the rest of the tourney. Congrats on that unique achievement, 300 weeks at No. 1, no male tennis player has ever done it before! My hero!
