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.

@KEMNA,

I recently read Agassi's autobiography "Open", and I have to say he's a really endearing, straightforward and down-to-earth guy. He comes across as a thinker about the little things in life, and an interesting story teller.
Sampras somehow doesn't have that appeal for me - he just says the usual and expected thing about most things.
Agassi also has a really pleasing game although I was too young to appreciate it when he was playing.

@KEMNA I heard that Djokovic won in straight set . second set tie breaker.

Hey guys, Novak and Andy played a match in New York yesterday for the World Tennis Day. Anyone know who won???

Unfortunately Sampras lost to Agassi (who played remarkable well I have to say, but personally I am not a Agassi fan, don't think much of him).... Never saw him play (except one repeat of a Wimby final), but to me, there is just something wrong with that guy....

It’s about Matt Cronin’s brain surgery, he wrote it. I like very much his articles, fingers cross for him. (In this article he mentions Rogi, but only him, that’s why much respect for him). Do hope within some months he’ll be healthy again.

All the best for the 'BNP Paribas Open Indian Wells'.

@VISHAKHA & SHATIR
Do you know which channel will telecast IW in India? This time I'm not getting any reference.
