Federer’s time at French Open

June 6, 2009

Over the past week, I’ve been really disappointed by the poor performances of some of tennis’ biggest stars at Roland Garros.
I mean, Rafael Nadal is supposed to be unbeatable on the clay. And Venus Williams? The No. 3 seed again couldn’t get out of the third round, despite having her own apartment in Paris.
And now, the women’s final features two Russian players no one in the United States cares about, let alone being able to pronounce their names. While the men’s final has basically been conceded to Roger Federer.
Sure, his opponent in the final is the same Robin Soderling who eliminated Nadal just a few days ago, but there’s no way Federer will let the Swede get the best of him. Not with history in his grasp.
You see, if Federer wins the French Open title, he will complete the career Grand Slam, becoming just the sixth man in history to win all four Grand Slam titles. He would also tie Pete Sampras‘ mark of 14 major titles with the win.
So, maybe we won’t get to see Federer-Nadal like we had all hoped. Or even Federer-Andy Murray. But at least we should all get the opportunity to witness history Sunday.
