Federer in France at last

Finally Federer has done it... Roger Federer was not only playing Robin Soderling at Roland Garros on Sunday. He was also playing Pete Sampras, Rod Laver and even Bjorn Borg, who was watching from right behind the baseline. Federer sank to his knees on the red clay and bowed his head. Finally. He won the one major championship that had eluded him and he tied Sampras' record of 14 Grand Slam championships.

Just two months ago we watched Federer mangle his racket in an uncharacteristic display of frustration at the Sony Ericsson Open. Another loss and more declarations that Federer was finished, surpassed by Rafael Nadal, who had beaten him in the epic 2008 Wimbledon final and supplanted him at No. 1 after a 4 ½-year reign.

But now he has shown that he is holding his game and took place on the shortlist that he is the sixth man to win all four Grandslam tournaments...
