Roger Federer Completes the Career Grand Slam

7 Jun

He floated by Robin Soderling fairly easily in three sets (6-1  7-6  6-4) to win his first ever French Open title, and to add one more to up his career total to fourteen.  At this point, it’s hard to argue against Roger being the best ever.  He’s now tied with Pete Sampras for the most career titles ever, he’s won everywhere, and he had a ridiculous stretch as the #1 player in the world.  His grace on the court, his shot-making, and his class off it has forever made me a fan.  I hope everyone out there loves his play too.  He’s cemented his legacy as a consummate professional, but his genuine tears of joy today also showed many of his haters (however many remain) he is NOT a robot out there.  He’s simply so determined, he won’t let his emotions get the best of him inbetween the lines.

Go Roger!

    I really wish Federer would have won his record tying 14th Grand Slam title against Nadal, but in any case, he finally won his elusive French Open title. In my humble opinion, Federer is the best of all-time.
