Şampiyon, bu oyunun en iyisi, tenis tarihinin kendisi, Roger Federer, Rafa Nadal'ı, hem de evinde, Madridliler'in önünde, toprak kortta yenerek ATP World Tour bünyesindeki 2009 Madrid Open'ı kazandı.
Ben daha ölmedim dedi, bunu bekliyordu O'nu sevenler ve Nadal'ı sevmeyenler. Yüzyılın en büyük rekabetlerinden birinde defter yeniden açılıyor, sırada Roland Garros var, Federer'de tek olmayan.
Turnuvanın resmi sitesi, Nadal'ın yenilgisi sonrası, yaklaşık 20 dakika kendini kapatmak zorunda kaldı, ne de olsa Madrid.
Federer breaks Nadal streak for first 2009 title
World No.2 Roger Federer won his first title for 2009 at the Madrid Mutua Madrileña Madrid Open defeating Rafael Nadal 6-4 6-4 and breaking the Spaniard’s 33-consecutive clay court match-winning streak.
Federer served six aces and broke Rafa’s serve on both occasions when he had the opportunity, fought off four break points on his own serve and won 63 points to the world No.1’s 58 during the course of the one hour and 26-minute match.
Tournament top seed Nadal was gracious in defeat. “Roger was much better than me and deserved to win today,” he said immediately after the match, “the surface was faster than the courts I’ve been playing on recently and suited him better.”
And the world No.1, who defeated Novak Djokovic in a marathon semifinal on Saturday, said that fatigue had not been a factor in the final.
“Playing four hours was not a problem for today,” he said.
