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.”

I watched the match and yes Canada deserved the win. Else Christie was expected to take the speed skating gold medal for GB but for the third time in a row this week she was disqualified. Poor girl.

With the gear they wear, it does take a bit of working out at times! I am sure they are ladies under all the padding though. Either way, a bronze was good news.
It was a shame GB failed to take the gold today, but silver is also very good.
Next week is a Roger week. At last! I am hoping we will see a fit Roger, raring to win, with a Stefan tweaked game and technique! Good luck Roger. Hopp Rogi!
