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.”

Dear Rogi
It is so good to hear you are feeling fighting fit and confident. Whatever you are doing with your life I would want you feeling fit,well and not in pain!
A very confident and fit Roger, is a difficult Roger to beat! Come on Roger, Dubai trophy number 6! I want to see the look of disbelief on Djokos face again, that vision is almost as good as the one with Roger holding up the trophy! Good luck and believe in yourself and your body. This year is yours!

Ten Sports has Dubai scheduled for today, but not when Roger's match will be underway.
I'll probably depend on drakulastream again.

And another title for Rafa.
He actually saved 2 match points in the semis against Andujar.

Meanwhile, about 10.5 hours left for Roger's match - can't wait!

1-Hello Roger, how are you? I've missed you very much. It felt like forever, it was like a month or something, but it really was a long time.

Hope you enjoyed the winter Olympics. Switzerland did great, congratulations!
