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.

Hi Roger Many congratulations on your fine achievement of 300 weeks at no 1. I do hope it carries on and that you go all the way in Shanghai. Cilic is a very good player though and is a dangerous opponent.

very best wishes to you and your family,

Mike

cont
& Davis Cup team mates--some ways difficult for both of you but other ways rather nice that you shared this memorable match/day.
Congratulations once again to yourself,parents, Mirka and all of your wonderful team.
Nearly forgot as usual loved your interviews thank you.
Hopefully media,commentators and critics read them and thus learn a few things about playing sport and why one plays.
Roger you say that a happy wife is important-- of course happy wife happy life.

Hello roger
What a wonderful achievement 300 weeks as the world's no 1 male tennis player .As Rod Laver said 'you are uncanny--the way that you play tennis,handle enormous pressure and as we all know, remain a wonderful humble human being.
Congratulations on reaching this wonderful milestone--we thoroughly enjoyed the match some great tennis and even though Stan faded in the 3rd set, I could not think of a better player to play against you in this historic match--both Swiss friends
