Federer beats Djokovic in French semis, ends 43 match winning streak!

Roger's back!  


And he's done it against the man who would have taken the number one spot in the world with a victory today.  Novak Djokovic may still yet achieve that ranking later this year but for now, it's all about the Federer Express!


How many more titles can Roger Federer win?  


At age 29, the general consensus seems to be that he at least two more in him.  With 16 Grand Slams under his belt, he'll surely have more.


After witnessing him beat Djokovic in four sets with two tie breakers and an incredible down-the-line backhand, who can really say that's he's limited to just two?  And it seems like Federer's game is still evolving.   He exposed Novak's two handed backhand weakness by chipping short balls and forcing him to pop them out of play.  He's kept Novak guessing throughout the sets with unpredictable shots.


No doubt that Rafael Nadal will be the heavy favorite this Sunday.  But I'll keep my Wilson BLX racquet nearby as I pop bushels of Lindt chocolates in my mouth, cheering for our Roger!
