At Last!


While strolling the grounds of Roland Garros with my two companions last Saturday, I said that as much as I like Nadal, I wouldn't mind seeing Roger Federer finally hoist the French Open singles trophy. The Swiss player finally broke through in Paris today, with a straight-set win the championship match, ending years of frustration at this event. It was pretty thrilling to see Federer rise to the occasion the past two weeks, coming back from perilous positions in a few of his matches, to claim this prize. I have to say it's probably not quite the same storyline it would have been had he beaten Nadal for the Roland Garros crown, but certainly Wimbledon will be a lot more interesting (assuming Nadal's knee holds up such that he can mount a defense of his title).
