Federer renews with greatness at the US open

Federer renews with greatness at the US open

09/09/08 | by yevez | Categories: Life of pleasures, Sports and Games

For a while this year I thought that Roger Federer would never win a grand slam title again. Well I’m happy that he proved me wrong last night when he succeeded in the challenge of winning a 5th US Open title in a row. His fluid style and perfect movement was back during this tournament to the pleasure of his many fans. It’s still Rafael Nadal’s year but Roger is back on the hard court.

Fed beat Andy Murray in straight sets in a good demonstration of what it is to be a champion. He had to be even better to beat Novak Djokovic in the semis on saturday. His serve was not as destructive against the scottish but he was on the offence side throughout the match always looking for the winner.

Murray on the other hand seemed a little flat at times and he probably tweeked his knee sometimes during the second set. In that same second set he was robbed of a break point that could have changed the match when a line judge missed a call. As the players were in the middle of a fast paced rallye Murray didn’t stop the play to go to the challenge system, too bad, even great champions need a little luck at times.

Way to go Roger and as you said to the interviewer who was harassing you with that question 27 years old is still very young and we wish you many other grand slam titles, this could be needed if you don’t want to see Nadal beat the record in no time. (14 grand Slam titles held by Pete Sampras)
