I am so psyched about Roger winning. Yes, we are on a first name basis. Although I was a bit disappointed at how Robin Soderling played this match. I'm not so sure he played his A-game but Roger certainly did! He won the match, 3-0. Can you believe that? Three to Love? Soderling scored nothing. He almost caught up on the second and third set though... almost. Roger nailed 16 aces even my brother could not believe it. Oh well, French Open 2009 IS for Roger Federer! He became the sixth man to win all Grand Slam titles! Another one of my all-time favorites, Pete Sampras won his 14th Grand Slam at age 31, Roger is only 27. I guess he'll up Sampras by a little bit more titles in the future.
I guess this one's a bit too fanatic. This guy leaped out of the crowd and ran up to Federer! Crazaay.

Andre Agassi was present at the awarding ceremony and was the one who handed Roger Federer his Championship trophy. I think Agassi was looking great as ever! It was emotional and sweet how tears streamed down Roger's face. We waited long for this win! He may not have won this championship against Nadal but it wasn't his fault, Nadal lost earlier than expected in the tournament. Roger Federer deserved this win! I defended this fact to my brother who kept on saying that it would be a much better match and much deserved win if it was Nadal he defeated. Yes, it might be a better match but it does not necessarily mean that it would be a much deserved win. Nadal lost! Nadal lost against Soderling and now Federer defeated Soderling. It is a very much deserved win! My brother said nothing after that. I know that he knows Federer played amazingly well throughout the tournament. He was even surprised with how many aces Federer nailed during this championship match alone. I guess his pregnant wife brought him moooooooooore inspiration. :)
The Winning Scores:
Federer 6 7 6
Soderling 1 6 4
Can't wait for Wimbledon and US Open!
