March 19, 2017 -- Indian Wells, California
Adding another title to his list of accomplishments this year, Roger was crowned the 2017 BNP Paribas Open Champion today. Having skipped the tournament in 2016 due to an injury, Roger looked fresh and ready for battle today as he faced off against Swiss compatriot, Stan Wawrinka. Executing his serves and driving backhands through the court for winners in the desert heat, Roger came away with a 6-4, 7-5 victory. He faced just one break point throughout the tournament.
"For me, the dream run continues," he said. "The fairytale of the comeback that I have already shown in Australia."
"I'm not as surprised as I was in Australia, but still this comes as a big, big surprise to me, nevertheless, to win here again and beating the players that I did and the way I did. I mean, couldn't be more happy.
This win puts Roger at 5 Indian Wells titles and it marks his 90th tour-level crown as well as his 25th ATP World Tour Masters 1000. This win as a 35-year old also makes Roger the oldest Masters 1000 Champion (previously held by Andre Agassi after winning the 2004 Cincinnati title in 2004).
Up next for our Swiss star is the Miami Open. Play begins on March 22, 2017.
