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!

Himalaya,
Great posts, well done!

Roger is the most complete player, the best on most surfaces, against most style of players. That is why we have slams.
Regarding other eras and players, its conjecture, but for me Roger is the best of the best there

Main point to note down is that Nadal has lost Grand Slam matches to 11 different players and even lowly ranked player when he was at the top of the world or 2nd in the world. It justifies that Nadal is not capable of holding different styles of play. He

Even having 13-7 head to head record against Nadal, Roger is better than him without doubt for the following reason.
