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, watching you play the U.S. tournament was sheer beauty in motion. Some of the announcers compare your movement to that of a dancer and it is true. You are the undisputed king of the tennis court. You are also the quintessential gentleman and good

Dear, Roger!
Congratulations and what a relief after the match.
It was amazing win and I'm very happy that you did it.
As you said that was not your best game, that mean that you are not so confident as you are with Roddick, Hewitt the guys you played

Congrats Champ! Never in doubt (even though there were plenty of doubters on the forums I'm a member of). Take a rest and then on to #13!
