Sixth Dubai title

01.03.2014 | Tennis, Starseite 3

Roger celebrated his sixth tournament title in Dubai after a 3-6, 6-4, 6-3 victory over Tomas Berdych today.


Roger started well and broke Berdych's serve early in the opening set - but then suddenly started to struggle, dropping his own serve twice and losing the set. In the second, he fell behind as he dropped his serve once again. But that was the moment when he flicked the switch to fight back, eventually securing the second set. In set number three, he displayed fantastic tennis in the crucial moments and secured another break, holing the lead to win the match.

With 78 titles Roger is now trailing only Jimmy Connors (109) and Ivan Lendl (94). He has won at least one title 14 years in a row, equaling Lendl’s record.

Hey PICKA, mark my words, Roger will be the male Date-Krumm !!!
Playing till he is 45 !!!

He will play longer than Connors and he wants his daughters to be old enough to cheer him and to know what he is doing....

But on the other hand, he does have to contend with the young guys - Dimitrov and Pospisil, the big servers - Isner and Cilic, and Del Po or Berdych.

Looks an exciting draw for Roger! 6 matches to play of which at least 3 should be easy.

With Roger ranked outside the top 4, in every tournament, 3 of the "Big Four" will be in one half of the draw.
Again, it's Djokovic who has a simpler draw, and Murray, Roger and Nadal are crammed in the same half.

I see there's potential for an all-Swiss QF. There's potential for some great games - Gulbis/Dimitrov lined up to meet. Surprised that Delpo's playing; I thought he'd be out with that wrist.

I'm happy to read that you're feeling good and still pain-free Roger, that's the most important thing for me. I hope you have a great tournament - Indian Wells is one of my favourites - all the best for your upcoming matches champ, have fun...love, xxxxxxxxxxx
