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 Somnath and Sdanu, love the way you both talk technical about Roger.
I am learning a lot from it.

Mark my words, not only will Roger win Wimby, but he will also win RG !!!

Hey dear friends. So nice to hear that you haven't forgotten about me !!! Also from you Somnath Bhai. How are you all? Guess we are all excited huh? Roger did not play great at the Dubai final, but he won. He also needs those kind of matches. But oh my God, did you see the SF? I saw it like 3 times. They both played amazing, but ofcourse our Roger was much much better. Now onto IW. Cannot wait to see Roger and Dimi in action.
Right now I'm watching Sampras vs Agassi. Hope Sampras wins.....

"He's the greatest player of all time and he'll never give up and give you anything for free," Berdych said. "I knew that and thought I was ready for it, but my execution wasn't good enough to hold it to the end."

Good to hear Berdych too calling Roger 'The GOAT'!
