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.

The whole tennis world, not just Roger's fans seems, thrilled by his resurgence. When he seemed down, it really began to dawn just what it would mean to lose him.
Now it's interesting that even with Nadal's 13 slams and talk of will he equal Roger, there's more acknowledgement of all Roger's other records that Nadal will never equal and I think a genuine recognition that Roger really is the greatest.

☆ I think the opposite of what some say, Nadal and Djokovic have to strive to get beat our champion and not the opposite, our champion always plays a lot and without much pause or easy draw like others, our Roger is always dangerous and ferocious on the court, others players know that when facing our king faces a quarry beyond its light, talent and brilliance. ☆

Dear Rogerrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr,

It's ALWAYS nice to see your win, it's such a pleasure! You need to adjust your game as per the weather (conditions created by opponents) and play to win

@TONYN,

Good link, and exactly my thoughts! When I heard the so-called ITPL would go on for 20 days I thought no way Roger would sign up for it.
And I remember reading somewhere it's best of 5-sets, not a single-set exhibition game!

@Noch,

Well, I did thoroughly enjoy Agassi's book.
He's candid enough to demystify his success in Tennis, and successful Tennis athletes.

Absolutely admirable and well-rounded person is Agassi. (at least as far as a "normal" person can be!)

SHATIR Agassi's autobiog is a whole different kettle of fish from Nadal's. the man is witty and can laugh at himself and had a good writer to help him. the one message in Nadal's is that tennis is all suffering and pain - the horrible Spartan ethic.
