Roger wins French Open!

07.06.2009 | Tennis

Roger beats Robin Söderling and wins the French Open! This title is Roger's 14th Grand Slam title! With this incredible win our champ levels Pete Sampras' record and is one of the six players who completed a sweep of the Majors!

 

Roger produced a near-faultless play and wrapped up a 6-1 7-6 (7-1) 6-4 victory in one hour and 55 minutes.

Roger backed that up with a majestic service game, which he held to love with one booming ace and the most delightful backhand.

After confidently winning the first set, Roger opened the second set with a double-fault but normal service was quickly resumed and an ace down the 'T' helped him take game one with little reason for concern.

At 4-3 up, Roger cranked up the pressure!

Söderling twice kept his composure when serving to stay in the set but Roger was in a class of his own during the tie-break serving four aces and gaining the first of three mini-breaks at 1-1.

The third set was decided in game three when Söderling double-faulted to gift Roger a break in game one.
