Federer equals Pete Sampras’ record
As I had already predicted, with the ousting of Nadal from the French Open, there was virtually no obstacle left between Federer and the elusive French Open title. Not just that he also equaled Sampras’ record by winning his 14th Grand Slam title. I didn’t watch the match because I knew it would be one-sided and it pretty much was.
Federer: 6 – 7 – 6
Soderling: 1 – 6 – 4
After winning the match Federer (as usual) broke into tears. “Now for the rest of my career, I can play relaxed and never hear again that I never won the French Open.”
Players like Pete Sampras and Andre Agassi said Roger Federer could truly be called the greatest player in the history of tennis.
I wonder what’s the height of men’s tennis? Every decade a player is born who becomes the monster of this game and set tough-to-break records. In my view, Nadal could be the next Federer or Sampras if he come back strongly and register his superb play. Only he can give a tough time to Federer on court.
