Reaching For the Hall of Fame

03.10.2004 | Off Court

"You can't even aim to do something like that, simply because it cannot be planned!". These were Roger's words after his 6:4, 6:0 victory in the final against Andy Roddick in Bangkok. It was not just Roger's tenth victory this season, three Grand Slam titles inclusive, but also his 12. final-victory in a row. Only the legendary Björn Borg and John McEnroe have gone this far before him. Roger seems to be playing in a ligue of his own. For his opponents it is not enough to just have an excellent serve - especially as Roger seems to have developed a sixth sense for the corner he has to go for. So Roddick did not look much different from Hewitt in New York, fighting against an artist playing tennis, performing the right shots when he needs to. And these shots seem to be a level higher than what the opponents have got. Roger even made it to the doubles final next to Yves Allegro, proving once more of the excellent state he is in.
