    Roger proved himself the greatest of all time yesterday by winning the French Open and tying Pete with his 14 slams. Well, he proved his worthiness without a coach which is a very hard thing to do. How many people have the strength to fight Acasuso, Tommy Haas and Del Potro the way he did? He deserves every bit of this happiness and he needs to win the Wimbledon 2009 to be on top of the mountain. He is one of the best players ever to play this game and Pete and Agassi confirmed this yesterday. Way to go, Rogi!

    Sorry, Andy — you got this one wrong. The on-court intruder was NOT quickly apprehended. To the contrary, he was able to hang about Federer for FAR too long and could have injured him easily. The security was slow to respond. So slow as to allow the intruder to nearly get across the court, over the net, and halfway to Soderling. It was a total security failure, despite the fact that no one was injured. The sluggish response from the personnel had all the classic signs of decreased vigilance due to an assumption that nothing was going to happen.

    can we REALLY say he’s the best ever? i would argue that he was the greatest at a time where his competition was at an all-time low. seriously…go to atpwordtour.com and look at rankings. he’s great, but not the greatest

    Just Sayin: Did u even watch the whole tournament? Yes, Nadal, Djokovic, & Murray were all eleminated early but it just put added pressure on Federer & he was feeling it. He was on the verge of losing 3 times in the tournament & somehow came through. That’s the mark of a true champion – he managed to win when he wasn’t playing well & under intense pressure.

    He’s been called the greatest for years & this just cements it. He tied Sampras’ record of 14 Slams with the French, which Sampras never won (Federer has now won all 4 grand slams). Yes, his game has declined the last couple of years. That’s because he’s gotten older & the younger & fresher Nadal has taken over (it happens in all sports). However, he’s still managed to stay #2 & still continually makes the finals in majors.

    Sampras, Agassi, McEnroe & other tennis experts all say he’s the greatest & I’ll take their word over yours :)

    SCAR2, i will grant that Federer has an exquiste game — indeed, the prettiest i’ve ever seen. his back hand is seemless. he has no weak shot. and now that he’s utilizing drop-shots, he’s approached perfection. still, nadal brings the big guns and that fantabulous ass (sigh). together with his talent and his tenacity of a bull terrier…. well, i’ll have to reserve judgement on “the best ever” honorific. i thought sampras was the best (that wretched repug), what with his traditional serve-and-approach game, and i was wrong.

    right now, federer is a tennis god, but rafa makes my heart beat faster.
