Roger Federer took to the court at the O2 arena today to claim the number one – literally:
Roger’s win over Andy Murray yesterday in round robin competition clinched his spot at the top. Here’s what Roger had to say afterwards about becoming the “ATP World Champion” for the 5th time in his career:
Q. How much does finishing No. 1 mean to you, considering you weren’t No. 1 at the end of last year?
ROGER FEDERER: Obviously, that was one of my big goals for this season. And it’s one of the greatest performances I think I’ve achieved, you know. Seeing also what happened, you know, off the court: getting married, having twin girls, reaching all four major finals, you know. Playing so well at the most important moments, it’s been the key this year, and staying healthy. Especially after having a rough 2008, coming back this year and being able to dominate and play at the top when the depth in tennis is so, so great at the moment. I think it’s a wonderful achievement. Of course, it’s official. It’s a wonderful feeling.

A little Federer finger porn:
A view of the pants. You can see that Roger’s gone matchy-matchy with the brown and black. The same color scheme as his warmup jacket/polo shirt on the court. Very fall appropriate.
It’s Roger’s evil twin! Get back!
