Tomorrow is the day.Will he?Or wont he?Will he make history?Will he prove his detractors wrong?Will he finally take home the title that has been eluding him?We’ll only know tomorrow how much of an iconic player he is.Yes I am talking about ROGER FEDERER.
This is the fourth consecutive French Open final that he has reached and every time he has missed the title by a whisker.And for the last three years Rafael Nadal has been a bane in his way at the Roland Garros
This year,however,with Rafa out of the reckoning,we have reasons to believe that Fedex might treat us to an historic fiesta.This title will give him two honours.One he will have won his first ever French Open,the only Grand Slam that he has not won till now and two,he will have created history by winning 14 Grand Slam titles in all.Something that is attributed to only Pete Sampras.
However,the person who stands between him and his destiny is Robert Soderling,who,by the turn of fate,crucified Nadal in the fourth round.But,of the 9 previous meetings he has had with Federer,the latter has always emerged victorious.Thats an incredible respite.
Being a die-hard Federer-fan myself I have my money,my bets,all my stakes on him.For me,he is right up there.He is the best.I remember how dejected he looked after losing to Rafa in the marathon Wimbledon final last year and then again this year at the Australian Open.Gosh!I was crying as I watched him break down on TV.
Hopefully this year he will be all smiles and bringing smiles on our faces too.I have my fingers crossed!
Go Federer go!Tell them you are the greatest!
EDITED TO ADD: And he did it!Way to go,Fedex!
