All I can say is was I right or was I right? Roger Federer just made history by winning the French Open as I knew he would. He played superbly - served well and Soderling did not have the game he used against Nadal. I was surprised by how well he spoke at the trophy ceremony because I have heard a lot of negative things about Soderling in that he does not have a lot of friends on the tour and that he isn't the nicest guy. However I felt he was very gracious in defeat and displayed a great attitude. I'm sure we tennis fans will be seeing a lot more of him. It was such a wonderful moment to see Federer win, and I have to admit that I too had tears in my eyes at the end of the match. How lucky were those who were there in the stands to see Federer tie Pete Sampras record! It was great that Andre Agassi was there to present the trophy - another great player in his own right.

I think Robin's game will work well on the grass - I know his specialty has been carpet/ indoor prior to now. But he hits such a flat ball, it would slide on the grass and be nearly impossible to return.

I was happy for Fed. I only called Soderling a bum because he was one of the many ATP also-rans. Robin's runner-up speech was classy and funny. Fed also said that he wants to see Soderling play as he did all the time not just for RG 2K9. Robin better have a good Wimby or these results are for naught.

Roger Federer has created the history as this win has ensured the Swiss maestro's legendary status in the tennis fraternity.
Federer has been in phenomenal form from the past one month, pocketing the 15th Masters series trophy with a win over Nadal in M... and then coming through some gruelling matches against Tommy Haas and ofcourse the thriller against Juan Martin Del Potro in the semifinals of French ...thriller against Juan Martin Del Potro in the semifinals of French Open.
With stakes backed by such strong wins.

The talented man from Sweden proved to the world that his win over Rafael Nadal in the fourth round was not a flash in the pan. Infact, his come from behind victory over Fernando Gonzalez in the semifinals only gets him the spot in the 'A' league.

But this match witnessed a total domination from the Swiss Maestro, who never looked in trouble and completed the victory when his Swedish opponent netted a return of serve. And as Federer dropped to his knees with big tears running down his face, those most definitely were of joy and victorious elation.

Fantastic! I had tears too. Actually, I agree with everything here including the thoughts on Soderling - I'd like to see more of him. But to the man of the hour, we could all tell how much he wanted it, with the tears during his national anthem. I feel that a huge burden has been lifted off Fed and now he may go on a tear - watch out opponents at Wimbledon and the USO! Congrats to a true champion!
