Roger Federer - French Open Champion

current song: Did You See Me Coming? by Pet Shop Boys

Roger Federer... in GDR blue... won his 1st French Open title... his 14th major. he now has a career slam... winning each major at least once.

in the 1st game Federer broke Soderling's serve. actually, 1st game a gift from Soderling... he double faulted on break point. Soderling now a verb. stat showed Federer's majors record against opponents ranked outside the top 5... a perfect 111-0. commenting on Nadal's loss to Soderling, Mary Carillo: Roger's never been Soderlinged. Federer went on to win the 1st set 6-0.

bug eyed moment at the start of the 2nd set. freak from the stands made his way towards Federer. security tackled the psycho. set went to a tie breaker. Federer served aces... kicked ass... won set.

announcers talked about Federer's new weapon... a forehand drop shot. I call it a forehand slice. awesome in today's baseline game.

Federer went on to win the 3rd set and the match. awesome.
