trophy watch: all roger, all the time

Even with Roger Federer‘s late-2007 hiccup (which saw him lose back-to-back matches for the first time since 2003), the Swiss and World No. 1 came out on top this year.

He beat sixth seed David Ferrer 6-2, 6-3, 6-2 to win his fourth Tennis Masters Cup title in five years.

Another record: Roger collected $1.2 million and a Mercedes-Benz C-Class for the win, putting his 2007 prize money pot at $10 million plus — an ATP record.

Earlier in the week, Federer also picked up another trophy by clinching the year-end No. 1 spot for the fourth year in a row.

davis cup: sa watch + guga watch

September 23, 2007

It’s nice to see Guga Kuerten taken out of reserve to play the doubles rubber with Andre Sa at this week’s Davis Cup.

These Brazilians faced Austria in a Word Group Play-off tie. Jurgen Melzer and Julian Knowle won the match 6-1, 6-1, 6-4, which put the Austrians in next year’s World Group (aka the main Davis Cup draw).

I love the yellow socks. Nice touch!
