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!

I recorded the match and watched it again last night. I'm dumbfounded how you manage to have won the 1st and 2nd sets. When Noval was serving for the 1st set and you were 0-40 down and still won on a hardcourt is just beyond a miracle and only a genius li

there was never a doubt in our minds that you would win. even after the canas & volandri victories, & knowing that the psychology of your opponents would start to get to you -- we believed, especially during the slams, that you'd prevail. your record & ex
