Default Your favorite Roger's non-slam title

So... I was talking about this topic with one of my friends.
We know Roger has won a lot of titles (and possibly he'd win a lot more!), and then we talked about the non-slam titles.
I remember the Fedforum had a cool thread about your favorite slam, so, what about the non-slams?

Which is it?

- 2002 Hamburg
Beating former world no1 like Safin and Kuerten (including bageling the brazilian on clay) to reach his first big trophy.

- 2003 Year-end championship
Unbeaten, beating World no1 Roddick and Agassi (2 times, including a bagel) in the final, in their own country at Houston.

- 2005 Miami
Coming back from 2-6 6-7 6-6 in a Masters final vs his nemesis Rafa Nadal.

- 2006 Basel
Finally winning his home tournament after a lot of times playing there.

- 2007 Hamburg
FINAAAAAAALLY beating Rafa on clay for the first time, including a sweet bagel.

- 2009 Madrid
Beating his nemesis on clay again, this time no bagel, but doing that in his home country.

- 2010 WTF
First time beating all of the fellow big 4, including Nadal in the final, all in the spaniard's best year of tennis.

- 2012 Cincinnati
Beating the "Hardcourt King" Djokovic, including the first bagel of the rivalry. Without losing a set, also without losing serve in the whole tournament.

It just HAS to be IW 2012. Winning it after such a long time AND against his most annoying rival on such courts AND after fighting through an illness. After this title, I truly started to believe RF was going to get that #1 back. It was awesome.

tough one. have to say Houston TMC 2003, esp rr and final vs Agassi. When you see how he demolised his peers and bagelling Andre in the final, i think everyone knew this was the Fed Express taking off. there were some shots he hit against Agassi i have never seen before. after the final, i rem Cahill saying that Andre told him in the locker room that Fed was a genius and that he was going to change the game.

Maybe you have to go back and think, Why have I started playing tennis? Because I just like it. It's actually sort of a dream hobby that became somewhat of a job. Some people just don't get that ever."

I liked the win on blue clay, which made him the only player to win 10+ tournaments on clay, grass and hard

Default Re: Your favorite Roger's non-slam title

this year it's Indian Wells, because Cincy he had already won in last years, and Madrid the same and also it as not that representative.

Winning a MS1000 tournament on a slow hardcourt he had not done since 2006 and also he defeated Nadal in such a convincing way

All time : 2003 YEC because imo it's where everything began, more than in Wimbledon 2003, because it seems it's really the moment where his game and mental did completely click and from then on he kept on winning and crushing opponents left and right.

And other reason : it's the tournament where I discovered Roger and found interest back in tennis after several years with less interest in it

WTF 2010 also was great, yes

Default Re: Your favorite Roger's non-slam title

Nice 3d. Thanks viruzzz for the idea.
So I voted "OMG! I can't decide!! so much peRFection. ^-^"
but they are 2 very special from the emotional point of view.

The 1st is the WTFs of 2010 - it was the 1st big win of Roger I was viewing since I've started following him and the other is the Basel title in 2011 and all came after in 2011. It was maybe more special because after USO so many things was changing and I had missed a lot Roger in his long stop before Basel and seeing him win it and getting emotional, see and read his happiness in his eyes was like I was blessed by one of the most beautiful feelings I could feel and there was the following of P-Bercy he hasn't never win before so other big emotions. After any time he wins or not for me nothing changes about the champion he is but reading his happiness when he realizes that the MP is a winner of the match and so he goes close to the net with that happy face and at the end he rises a trophy is the best I can feel and if he loses before or in the final I can't see his sad face.

Viruzzz dude, you haven't included two of his most relevant and recent victories in the poll. IW 12 and Bercy 11.

Also, I really think you should open the AO thread this year. Your username will antijinx all the jinx flung at Roger in GM, and at 32, he needs all the luck. Go for it!
