Federer, Williams Win Madrid Masters

There will always the complainers with their complaints and critics with their critique; the real winners go on without adding any more of their own to the fuss. Madrid Open 2012 at the beginning was all about rolling eyes and swearing mouths, boiling anger and surrendering declarations however the winners finally came to win their games at the end of it all.

Serena Williams sliced through the game smoothly beating Azarenka in the women’s side while on the men’s side, it was Roger Federer who beat Tomas Berdych. This is his third Madrid Open Title. He now equals Rafael Nadal’s record of holding 20 Masters Titles.

The men’s finals scores were: 3-6 7-5 7-5 to Federer. He has lost only a handful matches over the past couple of months, three out of whopping 48 matches to be precise. He did not get to face either of the two threats: Rafael Nadal or Novak Djokovic this time and the next likely time that he will do so will be the French Open which will begin at the end of this month.

Throughout the whole series, there was no grumble heard from Federer right from his first game to the last. Other top-class players made their entrances and right before their exits, adding a little flame to the blue clay fire. But leaving that aside, it was a champions Masters.

There is new ATP rankings to be released and Federer now moves up to the second position, tipping aside Nadal, after this victorious win.

For now Federer is all smiles as he exclaims that this, like every winning title, is valuable. He said that this win made it even more special because of the fact that he just came off a break. He last played in the Miami tournament and took an exit in the third round.

He also said that he was worried if he would have been able to make it through the first round or not. Ut things fell his way and he now stands holding the trophy.

“I was very realistic coming into this event. Confidence is coming back. I was away and it didn’t take much for me to get my confidence back, especially now that I’ve been playing so well for the past nine months.”

Thumbs up to Federer!
