10th anniversary no. 1

02.02.2014 | Tennis, Starseite 1

Today marks the 10th anniversary of Roger first becoming No. 1 in the Emirates ATP Rankings on 2 February 2004. The abiding memory is of Roger dropping to his knees and raising his arms in celebration. It was 9:30 p.m. in Melbourne, on 30 January 2004, and he had just beaten his rival for No. 1 in the Emirates ATP Rankings, Juan Carlos Ferrero, in the Australian Open semi-finals. The victory proved to be enough for Roger to become the world’s premier player for the first time. Roger confessed, “I wanted to enjoy this moment. You only get to be No. 1 once.”

It's just 10 years of first No. 1 and still in top ten. That's fantastic work!!! GOO ROGER!!! GOO!!!

@CJM,

Absolutely! The question only seems to be how he will do against the absolute top ranked guys like Djokovic! If he plays free and relaxed tennis like today, he's definitely my favourite to beat Djoker!

Thank you.
I was just going by the closeness of the score and that the last two games, Roger was close to breaking Becker but did not quite manage it and then was taken to having to save break points in the last. It suggested that Becker was playing a lot better. The good news is Roger was in control and did it in two! Looking at that video of his tweener and accompanying shots, Roger was (and is ) magic. He certainly is moving well again and very quickly! That is good news!

@CJM,

There was no fightback by Becker in the second set.
Roger comfortably held serve every time and threatened Becker's serve when he missed his first serves.

When he was up 2 match points, Roger made 3 unforced errors to offer a break point, but quickly snuffed it out and closed out the match. Complete domination by Roger, and can't really complain about anything today!
