Wow, what a/an (best adjective ever) player..3 consecutive Wimbledon and US opens..only player in tennis history to accomplish this…some more records to be broken in coming years..can anyone beat him?? Nadal can come close (he beat him in French) but Nadal makes Federer to player even better..At 25, 9 Grandslams..he’s all set for the highest no. of slams…Roddick has gotten big serve compared to Roger but in tonite’s game Roger got more no. of aces than Andy…Roger’s backhand is great but not the greatest still he got more backhand winners..and he need not improve his forehand..its beyond best..No double faults in final (wow!!!)..i can’t stop appreciating his talent..

Before the game he said that he got an incredible record at US open and has variety in his game..wow..great confidence…would like to watch his game live (of course not on TV) atleast once..

Roddick found his game back with his new coach/mentor Jimmy..but he got to do more homework when he plays Federer..

It looks like Federer got bored with his opponents (except Nadal)..no one is giving him a challenge…he’s making more errors than before..

Some people compare Fed with All time great, Sampras..but to me Federer went beyond Sampras..what you guys think?? I dont think its too early to say that..9 slams are more than enough…

Anyway, its good that we are in the same generation as Federer to see him playing and appreciating him..

Will see what else he has in his game..probably start playing leftie..

People like Serena and Venus got bored after winning a few tournaments and started concentrating on other things. This guy’s desire to win is amazing and he has the game to back it up. He reminds me of Steffi Graf.

I really don’t think Sampras was the best player ever. He was very very talented – no doubt about that. But best? Hmmm… I don’t know. The best player, male/female I’ve seen (since I started watching tennis) definitely has to be Steffi Graf. She had no kind of preference for any kind of surface, having won all four Grand Slam titles multiple times, ending up with 22 titles. She also won all 4 titles in 1988 and the Olympic gold medal too. Sampras never won the French Open (in fact, he never even made it to the finals) and neither has Federer (so far). If Federer manages to win even a single French Open title, I’ll have no hesitation in acknowledging that he’s the best male tennis player. Until then, I’ll say it’s Bjorn Borg (11 GS titles), who never won a US Open title, although he played the title match four times.

“The best player, male/female I’ve seen (since I started watching tennis) definitely has to be Steffi Graf”

-Yeah, thats true..she was the best back then and even now no one comes close..Hingis was doing great but unfortunately, she had problems..I thought she would be the next Graf..

“If Federer manages to win even a single French Open title, I’ll have no hesitation in acknowledging that he’s the best male tennis player.”

-Hmmm..Federer is getting better on Clay..
05-Lost in Semis
06-Lost in Finals.
07-Winner???
