Roger wins part I

19.11.2008 | Off Court

Roger beat James Blake in the one set they played at the exhibition in Kuala Lumpur (Malaysia): 7-6 (10-7), but he had to rally from 1-3 down. In the other singles match, John McEnroe defeated Björn Borg 7-6 (13-11).


"It has been a tough season with lots of traveling and I could just sleep for a month," Roger said. "I felt fine during the game, but obviously after a hard season I would need some time off. I'm glad we are at the end of the season and I will take it easy for a few weeks."


Roger and Borg then teamed to play McEnroe and Blake in doubles, and the Americans won 7-5.

On Thursday, the four champions will play the second part of the exhibition in Macao. After that, it's finally off to a more than well deserved holiday for Roger...

I really really wished I could be there. That's was so close to me (live in Hong Kong). I hated myself for missing the chance, and it's probably the only chance that I can see you play live. Disappointed that you won't appear at the event next year. But o
