COME ON FEDERER
« on: 2009-06-05 19:09:41 »
Not sure how many of you are Tennis fans, but today I witnessed an amazing recovery for Federer, aiming to be one of the few who have won all 4 grand slams and equalling Pete Sampras' 14 Grand Slam Wins.  Federer is already widely accepted as the greatest Tennis player of all time.

That match was one of the most awesome Federer experiences I have ever seen.   Go On Federer!  Do the business!

Well done roger federer.....made history in tennis.  Equalled the 14 grand slam total by sampras and became only the 6th man to make a career grand slam.

The undisputed King.

And then, at the age of 35, he goes on to win his 18th Slam on his 100th Australian Open match, which made him the second oldest Slam winner of the Open Era (after Ken Rosewall, 1972).  Stunning.  He also beat four top 10 players along the way, which is a joint record (had only been done 3 times before), as well as beating three of the opponents in five sets (had only been done 2 times before).

It's more than just the greatest tennis player now.  There is an argument he is the greatest sportsman of all time.
