6 Year end Championships for Federer
Roger Federer wins the final tournament of the season with a 6-3, 6-7(6), 6-3, win over Jo Wilfred Tsonga.Federer always looked the better player displaying his stylish shot making to the packed crowed at the O2 arena.
Tsonga showed his own impressive shot making keeping the 1st set close up until he provided a poor service game to let the former world No.1 break him and then ease to a first set lead of 6-3.
In the second set Tsonga made some poor shot selections to let Federer back into the points.Although Tsonga managed to break the Swiss man when he was 5-4 up with some mighty return of serves, it appeared to be too much for him as he went match point down in the tie break, but with some ferocious forehands he saved it and created a set point for himself.He took it and stormed off to his chair with the momentum.
The third and final set started in the same fashion with both players holding their service games.Tsonga looked the edgier of the two again making some poor shot selections and a few double faults but still managed to keep in contention with pure power.
Classic Federer was produced at the right time as he broke the Frenchmen for a 5-3 lead.Then 40 minutes after his previous match point he created 3 more.He took it with a volley and won his 70th career title in his 100th career final.It was as good as it gets from Mr Federer and his celebrations were jubilant as he took the title along with a nice sum of money.
