16th Grand Slam title!

31.01.2010 | Tennis

Roger showed a terrifc display against Andy Murray today, capturing his 4th Australian Open and 16th grand slam title 6-3, 6-4, 7-6(11).

 

"I'm over the moon at winning again. I think I played some of my best tennis again of my life these last two weeks," Roger said during the award ceremony. "So this obviously a very special moment sharing this with you guys. You get the best out of me."

 

Roger needed just two hours and 41 minutes to join Andre Agassi as the only man to capture four titles at the Australian Open (Agassi was also the last father to win a grand slam title - in Melbourne 2003). With a total of 16 grand slam titles, Roger is now two clear of Pete Sampras on the all-time grand-slam leaderboard. He will clearly remain on the number one spot for quite a few weeks to come!

 

It was clear right from the start that today's match would turn out a hard fight. Roger scored an early break, but had to accept his opponent breaking straight back. It was a tight moment from there, but Roger grabbed a decisive second break in the eighth game with a forehand winner before comfortably serving out the first set. The second set was clearly in Roger's hand, never giving away the lead he secured with a break. When Roger's intensity dropped slightly in the third set, Murray looked on the way of coming back. The Scotsman did not face a break point until he was serving to take the match into a fourth set, when Roger finally hit back with a break. Murray squandered five set points in the tension-filled breaker, and, opportunities lost for the Scot, Roger finally finished his tiring foe off on his third match point when the fifth seed netted a backhand.

Hello Roger,

I don't know if you ever read your emails, but you should really look at this one. On YOU TUBE, there is a super video of some of your magnificent shots at the AO. The song with it is 'YOU RAISED ME UP". The link is on the forum, but I
