Roger makes history!

05.07.2009 | Tennis

In a dramatic encounter that lasted over four hours Roger made history today! He defeated Andy Roddick to land a record-breaking 15th Grand Slam title in a thrilling final in Wimbledon, winning 5-7 7-6 (8-6) 7-6 (7-5) 3-6 and 16-14.

His words after the amazing success were: "It's not one of those goals you set as a young boy. It feels amazing. I don't play tennis to break records, but this is a great one to have." Roger is the first tennis professional ever to have reached the mark of 15 Grand-Slam titles as he broke Pete Sampras' record. Pete followed the epic match in the

stadium today.

It was a hard piece of work for Roger as Andy Roddick pressured him with his strong serve. The two stretched the match all the way and played the longest set in tennis history! Roger was the happy winner today, with Andy surrendering a good loser.

And now Roger regains the world number 1 spot after his glorious victory - way to go!

Thank you for your post. I agree with you.

To criticize Roger Federer to the degree that some of the tabloids have is SHAMEFUL - and the Federer fans know it - so do non-Federer fans if they're really honest with themselves.

Want to add one more player....

James Blake is greatest because he has 3-2 Head-to-Head record against Rafael Nadal..

First

about the " head to head "

Nadal leads 9/2 on clay, Federer leads 2/1 on grass, and on hard the result is 3/3

AND

Nadal is a lucky player, because there are lots of clay tournaments in the year ( ATP 1000 -ATP 500 and RG also ) but there
