French Victory


The ceremonial first tear escaped during the playing of the Swiss national anthem, down his left cheek, followed by more. Finally, the French Open was played Sunday by Roger’s rules, No. 1 being: there is crying in tennis.

Sports of The Times - Open Emotions From Federer -

Well deserved win for Federer at Roland Garros (French Open). This completes Roger's Grand Slam trophies with the one that eluded him for so long. It is a moment for history tying Pete Sampras's record of 14 Grand Slam titles.

The debate is on again of who is the greatest player to ever play the game. With this victory eyes are on Roger again. Funny how lately he was discounted with his game in decline. The tears that came down his eyes in victory and loss says it all: he is human; we are human; we have our winning moments and losing moments. Today is a winning moment and well deserved one.
