The dream comes true!

08.07.2007 | Tennis

Roger emulated the legendary Björn Borg when he captured his fifth successive Wimbledon title with a 7-6 (9-7), 4-6, 7-6 (7-3), 2-6 and 6-2 win over Rafael Nadal in a thrilling final today.

 

It was Roger’s 11th career Grand Slam title, taking him within three of Pete Sampras's record of 14 and was his 54th consecutive grasscourt win. "Each win is special but to play a champion like Rafa and equalling Björn's record it makes it very special," said Roger who was later warmly embraced by the man whose Wimbledon record he'd just equalled. He added: "Rafa is a fantastic player who will be around longer than me so I'm happy to win again before he takes them all. It was a close match and I told Rafa at the net that he deserved it as well. Today I was the lucky one."

 

"Roger has had an amazing season and to win five Wimbledons in a row is fantastic," said Nadal, the triple French Open winner. Roger said: "I was drained mentally and physically. It was a huge occasion, the record was on the line... It just adds up and puts more pressure on you."

 

"To have Borg, Jimmy Connors, John McEnroe, Boris Becker sitting there watching... I will take very special memories of this final."

To all of Roger's fans:

We all suffered last Sunday almost in the verge of losing our "Man" from the threshold of greatness . . . but he persevered and when he hoisted that trophy, my thoughts were with you all - and when he cried, we too cried with hi
