12th Grand Slam title!

10.09.2007 | Tennis

Roger won his fourth consecutive US Open championship and 12th overall Grand Slam title today! He defeated Novak Djokovic 7-6 (7-4), 7-6 (7-2), 6-4 at the National Tennis Center in New York and is now only two Grand Slam titles short of Pete Sampras's all-time record.

 

"Of course it's great to have been able to capture this title once again. I was rather nervous before the final and I know that Novak plays excellent tennis," Roger said after his victory. "It is the largest stadium in the world and also the hardest to win in. Right now I'm just glad it's over and I can party with my team, go to bed and rest for a few days."

 

The 20-year-old Djokovic, appearing in the final of a major for the first time, was unable to convert seven set points over the first two sets. Roger won the title on his second match point.

 

Roger is the first man to win four straight US Open titles since professional players were admitted to the tournament in 1968, the start of the Open Era. Bill Tilden won the event six years in a row from 1920-25.

 

Enjoy the party, Roger!

Roger,

I am in awe of you everytime you grace a tennis court. You are like a god of the courts. The way you glide, and the power you possess both physically and mentally is mesmerizing. It's amazing how you can step up your game at the right moment. Yo
