Roger stays the King of Queens!

09.09.2008 | Tennis

Roger won his fifth U.S. Open in a row by beating Andy Murray in the final today! The 6-2 7-5 6-2 victory put him one grand slam crown away from matching the record total collected by American Pete Sampras.

 

"This is a very special moment in my career," said Roger after his victory. "I had a couple of tough Slams this year, including that epic at Wimbledon. To take this one home is incredible. It means the world to me."

 

He powered up his huge game for the first Monday final in New York in 21 years, delayed a day after torrential rain scuttled the weekend schedule. He avenged two defeats against Murray, who would have become the first Briton to win the US tournament since Fred Perry in 1936.

 

"Andy's gone great the past couple of weeks," Roger said. 'We'll see more of him in the future.' Roger took the first two sets and then kicked in his afterburners with two breaks of the Scot to love in the third set, 4-0. He was broken while serving for victory leading 5-1 but put things right a game later on his second match point, as he wrong- footed Murray before falling to his knees in celebration of the reassuring victory.

 

Roger is the first man to win five successive titles at two different Grand Slams, just ended his streak this year at Wimbledon. He improved his Grand Slam finals record to 13-4. The match was his 34th straight win at Flushing Meadows, where he is now 45-4 lifetime.
