SAMPRAS PAYS TRIBUTE TO FEDERER

ATPWorldTour.com talks to Pete Sampras about Roger Federer's record-tying 14th Grand Slam title.

Q. How does it feel to share your record and once you retired with 14, did you think it would be less than seven years before your record would be matched?

A. I didn't think it would only take seven years to tie it. It feels like I'm in good company with Roger. If there was someone I would want to be tied with and maybe one day my record to be broken, I hoped it would be someone like Roger.

Q. Now that he's reached 14, how many do you think Roger will end up with before he retires?

A. It's hard to put a number on it. But now, I know it's a different sport, he might have his eyes on (Jack) Nicklaus' 18 Grand Slam record.

Q. You had Andre and Roger has had Nadal as main rivals, what do you think it would have been like if both of you were out there playing in the same era?

A. I think when you have two great players, playing at the same time. I think I would have had my fair share of wins, and he would have had his fair share of wins. We have similar temperament and contrasting styles of play which would have made for a great rivalry. Our rivalry potentially would have transcended the sport.

Q. Could you talk about Roger's amazing stretch of reaching 15 of the past 16 Grand Slam finals?

A. It's incredible. I never would have thought that someone would be as consistent as Lendl's eight US Open consecutive finals. But this surpasses it and to do it on all surfaces, it's a reflection of his game and his career.

Q. What about Roger's performance in Paris to complete a career Grand Slam, to pull out two five-setters and win a couple of other tight matches. Did you follow his matches throughout the tournament?

A. I followed his results and saw some highlights. People were saying that he was struggling, but as great players normally do, they find a way to win. I believe in destiny and it was Roger's time to win in Paris.

Q. Will you come to Wimbledon if he's in the final?

A. TBD...

Karol Stopa: Wrócił król, niech żyje król

Tytuł z Roland Garros, jedyny, jakiego mu brakowało w kolekcji, Roger Federer zdobył właściwie przez aklamację.

Gdziekolwiek spojrzeć, gdziekolwiek ucha nadstawić, wszyscy deklarowali, że są za takim akurat scenariuszem. Życzyli mu tego triumfu dawni mistrzowie, eksperci, dziennikarze, zwykli kibice, najwięksi rywale, również Rafa Nadal, gdy już odpadł z turnieju. Paryskie trybuny, wymagające i bezwzględne dla wielu gwiazd, nawet w trakcie pojedynków z Francuzami nie skrywały sympatii do Szwajcara. Od lat jest on człowiekiem sukcesu i ulubieńcem fortuny ze statusem multimilionera.

A tu wielonarodowy tłum, zamiast jak nad Wisłą ściągać za nogi w dół, śni i marzy o jeszcze jednym jego zwycięstwie.

Skąd ta najnowsza fala sympatii dla chłopaka z Bazylei? Na pewno zaczęła wzbierać, gdy płakał z rozpaczy po ostatnich porażkach z Nadalem w Wimbledonie i w Melbourne. To były łzy króla, który nie tylko został strącony z tronu, ale też zaczął tracić nadzieję, że kiedykolwiek tam wróci. Że kiedyś wygra w Paryżu, że zdobędzie 14. tytuł, który zrówna go z Petem Samprasem. Takich upadłych mistrzów często łatwiej lubić niż wtedy, gdy byli na szczycie. Ale samymi łzami sympatii się nie zdobywa. Roger ją sobie wywalczył przede wszystkim rakietą.

On, tenisista kompletny, uosabia styl gry, za jakim się tęskni. Bliski podręcznikowym ideałom, oklaskiwany w każdym zakątku kuli ziemskiej. Powrotu takiego tenisa międzynarodowa publika była spragniona.

Dziś, gdy na ustach wszystkich jest Federer, nie wolno żadną miarą przekreślać albo lekceważyć Nadala. Mimo porażki w Paryżu pozostał wielkim bohaterem. Zwłaszcza dla młodego pokolenia kibiców, które traktuje go trochę jak herosów z gier komputerowych. A oni przecież nigdy nie giną.

Rafa zrobił niewyobrażalne tenisowe postępy, psychicznie jest niesamowicie mocny, tylko ciało na chwilę odmówiło posłuszeństwa. Od początku było jasne, że tenis Nadala - jak kiedyś Lleytona Hewitta - jest energochłonny i na najwyższych obrotach bez przerwy funkcjonować się nie da. Chłopak z Majorki i tak kilka razy zdążył przekroczyć barierę wytrzymałości dobrze wytrenowanego sportowca, zadrwił z określających normy katedr biomechaniki. Teraz się przekonał, że od czasu do czasu i on musi się zatrzymać.

Za czasów Wojtka Fibaka tenisiści omijali szerokim łukiem sale do ćwiczeń ogólnorozwojowych, wielu wybitnych graczy z zasady nie brało sztangi do ręki. Dziś tenisowe przygotowania zaczynają się w siłowniach, a techniki uderzeń uczy się po drodze albo wcale. Co z tego wynika, właśnie widzieliśmy w Paryżu. U pań: monotonne, bezmyślne uderzanie w piłkę, katastrofalne półfinały i bardzo wystudzone emocje w rosyjskim finale. U panów: szwedzki drwal Robin Soderling w finale. Sympatyczny, z pomysłowymi czasem zagraniami, ale budowanymi tylko i wyłącznie na sile. Trudno się dziwić, że triumf Federera przyjęto z entuzjazmem i westchnieniem ulgi. Niech nam Roger gra jak najdłużej.

Federer focuses on title, not records

Five-time champion Roger Federer was relaxed and confident ahead of what could be an historic tournament for him, although any talk of taking Pete Sampras' Grand Slam record was relegated to a mere afterthought – the Swiss 2nd seed wants his Wimbledon title back, with any records that come with it mere icing on the cake.

"The focus is on the first round and the first point," said the genial Swiss, whose match against Yen-Hsun Lu is first on Centre Court on Monday, "but also trying to regain my Wimbledon crown, so that stands over trying to beat Pete's record right now. Once I come down to the semi-finals or finals, hopefully, then that's also going to start creeping into my mind, but right now, just trying to regain my Wimbledon crown would be a dream come true."

Realising this dream is an even more viable prospect with Rafael Nadal, the top seed and defending champion, having withdrawn due to a knee injury. "It didn't come as such a big surprise to me, but it's obviously very disappointing for the tournament, and also for myself. It's a little bit similar to Paris — we played the last four years against each other in Paris, the last three years here at Wimbledon, so we won't see the same finals again.

"It's disappointing for me because I'd love to play him. He's my main rival and we've had some wonderful matches over the years, and especially the one here last year that obviously stands out. It just shows me how lucky I've been that I haven't been injured over all those years."

When pressed later in the interview by the Swiss media, Federer elaborated on this "luck". "I'm a little bit lucky, but getting to all the finals that I have is not normal, not being injured is not normal, and you realise that now. It's luck but it's also planning and preparation," said the 27-year-old in reference both to his training regimen and also his style of play, which is much less intensive than Nadal's, yet no less effective.

Local hero Andy Murray was also high on the agenda throughout the press conference, as can be expected for the Briton's home tournament, but again Federer refused to speculate. "He's a very gifted player. He has wonderful feel, he's a great tactician — I always said that, and he's finally proved it. It took him some time, and that was the disappointing part. I expected him to do better a few years ago, but everything is coming together for him now and he's been rock solid for almost two years now.

"The [British] media seems be making something of our recent matches," Federer ventured to the French-speaking press. "When I lost to him in Shanghai [at the Masters Cup in November 2008], for example, I was ill and suffering with my back, and I still almost beat him, so I'm not about to say that he's the best player in the world all of a sudden."

One person who could claim to be the best player in the world however is Federer himself, particularly having claimed the one Grand Slam crown that had eluded him with victory at the French Open two weeks ago. "It was a great feeling, it really inspired me,” smiled the Swiss. "I was mentally drained because I felt like I had to play four finals at the end of Paris because of the pressure. There was such a relief and happiness once it was all over that for me it was almost impossible to change it all around again and start a tournament from scratch again.
"I spent a week in Switzerland doing nothing except working on fitness a little. I saw my family and friends then I came here on Tuesday. I practised with [Mikhail] Youzhny on Tuesday, Stan [Wawrinka] on Wednesday, [Marat] Safin yesterday [Friday] and [Stefan] Koubek today [Saturday]. I've been practising two or three hours a day and the change from clay to grass has gone really well," said a serene Federer, despite being a mere 15 days away from a potential 15th major.

Wywiad przed finałem Wimbledonu 2009:

R Federer
Saturday, 4 July 2009
Q. You've said several times since you won in Paris, you've been feeling very relaxed. Now that the possibly 15th title is very close, does some of that relaxation go away?
ROGER FEDERER: Yeah, tension always comes back for any Grand Slam final, or final for that matter. Knowing I only have one match to go, it definitely changes your mindset, you know. You don't have to think of maybe a possible match coming after that. I'll have a few weeks off, so I'll just try to give my very best. Records are part of this great match right now, so it's obviously even more of an incentive to try really hard.

Q. In addition to the serve, what do you find most challenging about facing Andy Roddick?
ROGER FEDERER: You know, just his dangerous play, his fighting spirit, his belief. He's also been one of the most consistent players in the last five years. He's basically always been in the top 10, I think. It's nice to see that he's back in a Grand Slam final again. I like to play those classic matches with him. We've played so many times against each other. We're almost the same age. He's improved his game again, I think, which was important for him, and necessary too. So it's going to be a good test for me.

Q. Did you watch much of his game with Andy Murray yesterday? Were you surprised or impressed how well he played?
ROGER FEDERER: I saw not everything, just parts of the match, because I was in press and then I was in transport. So I just saw maybe one set in all. But it seems it was, you know, very close towards the end. You know, a few points here and there. But I thought Andy Roddick was really able to put the pressure on Murray. It was good to see that Roddick could really like, you know, push Andy on the back foot time and time after again. That's what I said yesterday: the better player will come to the finals and challenge me. For that matter I was very happy I was already there. My match went really smooth. I'm really excited about being in the final again.

Q. How much of the pleasure you take from playing Andy comes from your record against Andy?
ROGER FEDERER: Well, it's just that I played him for the first time nine years ago maybe. We've played each other almost in every Grand Slam, except the French. We've had some big matches against each other. I always said that serve makes him so dangerous, you know. No matter what surface you play him on, no matter where you play him, how bad the record is for him, he'll always have that shot just because he can serve so great. It's hard to get a read on it. You know, I've had times where I read it incredibly well. I couldn't believe how well I did read it. And then I had days I didn't read it. That's the strength of a great serve. He not only has a great first serve, but probably has the best second serve in the game. That's what makes it hard to break him. He's good enough off the baseline that he can always make it really a tough match every single time.

Q. If you win tomorrow, you've now won the French Open, you're going to become a parent. Is there a possibility when you get to the 15th Grand Slam title you'll just start to feel your appetite wane a little bit? When are you going to feel you've done enough in the game?
ROGER FEDERER: Look, I mean, it might be a completely different situation, you know, at the US Open when it comes to answering those sort of questions, you know, like how does it feel. But right now I don't know. I mean, I'm just excited that Mirka is feeling great. Awaiting our first child, it's quite something on a personal note. That's great. Also I'm playing wonderful tennis at the moment. Everything seems like, you know, everything's just great. I'm not really worried about my motivation in any way, because I love this game too much. I'd like to stick around for a long time. I don't know if you heard, but Mirka's dream was always that our child can see me play as well. So there you go. I have to play a few more years just because of Mirka. And, anyway, the 2012 Olympics here at Wimbledon is something I'm going to be a part of. I don't think it's going to change a whole lot in the next year or so.

Q. Winning 14 slams is such an incredible accomplishment. They sort of all blend together in a certain way. If students of the game wanted to sit down and say what are your top four or five, they might point to your first win here or the French this year, Wimbledon tying Borg, your first US Open over Hewitt. Which would you say were the top four or five?
ROGER FEDERER: Well, I mean, obviously, you know, every Grand Slam or every victory has its special feeling about it, depending also on how you played coming into the final, how you felt beforehand, maybe what happened in your personal life. There's a lot of things that come into play about your reaction and feeling after match point winning a Grand Slam. Of course, there's milestone wins that you'll never forget, you know. One of them was obviously my first Wimbledon victory here in 2003. That really opened up all possibilities to me that I knew I can be a wonderful player and I can actually have incredible success on the men's tour, after having it already on the junior tour, proving my point by beating some of the greatest players already in the game, like Sampras. That just gave me belief. But then winning the big one really gave me the edge I think. Then becoming No. 1 in the world when I beat Ferrero in Australia I think was a milestone victory as well, because it was always a dream for me to become No. 1 in the world. When I achieved that in 2004 it was a wonderful feeling, like feeling on top of the world. It was great. And then, you know, obviously all those US Open victories against maybe Roddick in the final, especially the one against Agassi in the final. Those are particularly special just because, you know, they played at home. The Agassi one, you know, people were wondering if González he might retire that day if he beats me, for instance, like Sampras basically did a few years earlier. Sort of the atmosphere in the stadium was amazing to be part of. So to come through that one was probably one of my biggest accomplishments as a player, filled me with the most pride. Obviously going for my fifth one here, beating Rafa in five was amazing. There you go. So I guess those are some of them. But I have many more, thank God. I probably even forget a few sometimes now.

Q. The whole of this country wanted a Federer/Murray final tomorrow. Is there a part of you that's perhaps a little disappointed that won't happen for the sense of occasion?
ROGER FEDERER: Well, maybe a little bit, you know. But then again, whoever won that semifinals deserved it more. It's just the way it goes in tennis. Tennis is tough, you know. Of course, I would have liked to play Murray here. But then again, I like playing Roddick, too. I'm just excited I'm in the finals. I always said, Whoever's in the finals against me doesn't matter to me because I'm playing for victory, not trying to beat somebody in the final.

Q. Murray got close. Can you see him winning a Grand Slam in the near future?
ROGER FEDERER: Sure. I mean, he's put himself in a good position with all his wins in Masters, being consistent, you know, having a good record against top players. So things look good for him. But a Grand Slam is not something that comes very easily. It takes a lot of hard work. There's many young and hungry players out there. Rafa's gonna come back for the US Open and so forth. So, you know, it's not an easy thing to do, but he's definitely gonna have his shot.

Q. What do you think that you and the event have missed by not having Nadal here?
ROGER FEDERER: Look, I mean, sort of the tournament goes on. You know, if I or Rafa doesn't win the tournament, somebody will, and there will always be a story. I think the story definitely was Murray in this tournament, you know, because of where he comes from, because of how good his game's gotten, you know, that he had a real chance of winning here. I think that's why Rafa got forgotten quite quickly, to be honest. There was a good semifinal match, that was Roddick, and there you go. It's unfair to a degree. But at the same time you have to move on, you know. I'm sure Rafa will be coming back next year and playing great tennis here. So that's the way this sport works really.

Q. You mentioned the win to put you to No. 1 the first time as being one of your milestone wins. Is there a point of pride in that you can return to No. 1 by winning tomorrow?
ROGER FEDERER: Yeah, well, probably not as much as becoming No. 1 for the first time. I think that's a very special moment, because it doesn't matter if I'm No. 1 for a week or for 50 years, you know, you've been No. 1 in the world. That's what counts to sort of have it on your résumé, being the most consistent player for 365 days. It doesn't matter whether you have it for a week or for a long time. Of course, it's nice to hang on to it, going through life being the best, being called the best by everybody, by fans. When they see you, It's so nice to meet you; you're the best. You're not just really a champion, you're the best at something. That's a nice feeling to have. That's why I hope I can become No. 1 in the world again, hopefully from Monday on again. So for this reason I have to play well on Sunday and focus on Roddick.

Q. I heard you were in the tube the other day, the underground; is that true?
ROGER FEDERER: Not true.

Q. A few weeks ago the story was about Nadal winning everything, you struggling a little bit. Then you won Madrid, you won Paris. Now you're about to regain maybe the No. 1. Tennis seems to change fast. What's your reflection on this?
ROGER FEDERER: Yeah, I mean, there's a good side and a bad side, because it's kind of a very important period in tennis, the French Open and Wimbledon stretch. So if you get injured ‑‑ I think like what Murray got injured as well with his wrist a couple of years ago, and Rafa now a little bit. I don't quite remember now who else got injured ‑‑ but you can lose so many points. Especially him being back‑to‑back champions, Paris and Wimbledon last year, you can't play, you lose four thousand points. It goes like in a hurry. From being invincible, you're all of a sudden No. 2, No. 3 in the world, having to prove yourself. Other tournaments are looming around the corner which you have to defend again. Does that just mean that he's only the second best, you know, or third best just because he couldn't play? Probably not. He deserves to be all the way up there in the rankings, but somebody has to win the tournament. All you can do is put yourself in that position, and I did. Of course, I'm very happy. Shouldn't be forgotten what a great player, what a great champion he is. Stories come about very, very quickly in tennis. At the same time, because they go so quickly, some fade quickly as well. Sometimes it's not fair towards certain players, if you achieved a lot like I did for so many years and then you don't win some tournaments, people say you're already on the decline very quickly. So that's the way this business works, unfortunately. But I hope it just opens some eyes at least these last few months, because they have been very different maybe to what people expected.

Wywiad po finale Wimbledonu 2009.
R Federer - 05 July 2009
Sunday, 5 July 2009

Q. How hard was that compared to other finals you've played here?
ROGER FEDERER: It was difficult, because I thought Andy played great. You know, I mean, I'm obviously ‑‑ I know how it is to play a Wimbledon final. I know how it is to play a fifth set in the final, in a Wimbledon final. But it felt different. It was so different to what I experienced the last few years with Rafa, you know, where it was a baseline game. Today it was a serve and return game, which is more classical for grass. You know, I mean, it's frustrating at times because I couldn't break Andy till the very, very end. So satisfaction is maybe bigger this time around to come through, because I couldn't control the match at all.

Q. What went through your head when you finally won the second set?
ROGER FEDERER: Yeah, I mean, I thought the second set was obviously key to what came after. Maybe being down two sets to love, the way Andy was serving, would have always been a very difficult situation to be in, you know. Even then down two sets to love it's still possible, but it definitely increased my chances of winning.

Q. What are your feelings for Andy now?
ROGER FEDERER: It's hard. Sports or tennis is cruel sometimes. We know it. I went through some five‑setters in Grand Slam finals, too and ended up losing. It's hard, you know. But I think he did great, you know. He's not going to let his head hang down. I think he's gonna come back strong and play great in the States. I think it's one of the best matches we played against each other. Of course, conditions were very quick today. But he played well. You know, I really thought I had to play my very, very best to come through.

Q. You said that as a boy you couldn't have dreamed of this. Was there a point as a boy where the game captured you, inspired you, and you said, That's what I want to be?
ROGER FEDERER: Sure. I mean, I wanted to be a tennis player or a soccer player from a very young age.

Q. Was there a final or something?
ROGER FEDERER: I think the Becker/Edberg final. I don't remember which year because they played a few times. Sitting at home in the living room, watching them play, thinking hopefully one day I can be like them, you know.
That's I guess where idols and inspirations are good. They push you forward. Then along the way you joke around and say it's coming closer. You know, when you win a practice match, you know, you just fake like you've just won Wimbledon, you know. All of a sudden it's really happening, you know. But it's so surreal to think that far ahead, that it's amazing coming through in the end like this today.

Q. A lot of players go through their entire career never winning one Grand Slam. What's it like to win 15?
ROGER FEDERER: That's a good question. I like it. Makes me happy (smiling).
I don't know. I mean, it's staggering, you know, that I've been able to play so well for, you know, so many years now and stay injury‑free. Happy what I'm doing. You know, I mean, of course there is a certain routine that's started to happen the last few years since I sort of became No. 1 in the world. I knew what it took to win the big ones. That's obviously, you know, a lot of experience that comes with it, you know, being there and giving myself chances. Yeah, you know, so it's ‑‑ yeah, it's crazy that I've been able to win so many in such a short period of time, I think.

Q. Your first Grand Slam title was Wimbledon. Now your 15th is Wimbledon. Both titles are memorable. Do you feel destiny or anything?
ROGER FEDERER: Well, I mean, I'm happy I broke the record here in some ways, you know, because this is always the tournament that's meant the most to me because of what we spoke about with my heroes and idols being so successful here. So it definitely feels like it's come full circle for me, you know, starting it here and ending it here. Of course, my career is far from over. But it's also nice to think especially so many legends were sitting there today. You know, especially Pete, you know, who I had a great time with in Asia a short while ago. I know how much the record meant to him and he knows how much the record means to me. In a way, I still feel like we share it, you know, just because he was such a wonderful champion. He still has one up against me here at Wimbledon. It's nice, you know, that he shows appreciation for what I'm doing, and it's just great seeing so many, you know, legends coming out and enjoying my tennis or our tennis today. I don't know how to say. I used to get nervous when a friend would come watch me play as a kid, and then it was my parents, and then it was legends and people I really ‑‑ who meant something. Today it's okay. Today anybody can come and watch me play. I don't get nervous anymore. Today with Pete it was a bit special, you know. When he walked in and I saw him for the first time, I did get more nervous actually.

Q. He got here late actually.
ROGER FEDERER: I said hello to him, too, which is unusual. But I thought, I don't want to be rude, you know (laughter).

Q. When did you actually find out he was coming? It was a will he, won't he, will he, won't he for the last couple of days. Were you given notice he was going to be there?
ROGER FEDERER: Well, confirmation I only got it yesterday during the day, but he promised me long time ago that he would. So I always knew he would keep his word, you know. Yeah, he hoped it was maybe going to be in New York so it's closest to him. He said maybe not Australia, if possible. But I think this works for everyone.

Q. You've reclaimed the tennis throne, winning the French, here, No. 1 spot, without facing Rafael Nadal. Does that take anything out of it in any way?
ROGER FEDERER: No, I don't think it should. Just because tennis, that's the way it goes, you know. Everybody expected Murray to be in the finals. He wasn't there. It's not the mistake of the one who wins at the end. Of course, I would have loved to play him again. But, then again, I've also played Andy now in three great Wimbledon finals, you know, and I think he deserves the credit, too, for playing so well. You never know how he would have played, but it's sad he couldn't even give it a fair chance, Rafa. He had the injury. Tennis moves very quickly, you know. I'm happy at least that I became No. 1 in the world by winning the tournament, not just by him not playing at all, or me playing decent or someone else playing decent and getting to No. 1. That's not the way it's supposed to be. It's supposed to be that you win big matches, big tournaments. That's how you get back to it.

Q. What is going to be your next priorities?
ROGER FEDERER: The next priorities?

Q. From here.
ROGER FEDERER: What do you think? Not tennis.

Q. Do you feel like you're the happiest person right now?
ROGER FEDERER: I don't know. I mean, I'm very happy. I don't know if I'm the happiest person in the world. I don't think so. I think there's many happy people out there. Tennis doesn't make you ‑‑ tennis doesn't do it all for me. There's more to life than just tennis. But I feel great.

Q. Up till this point of your career, do you still have some regrets in your personal life and professional life?
ROGER FEDERER: No. I mean, I think in my tennis life I think I tried as hard as I could. Maybe some regrets when I was a junior. But I think it's important to go through that period of time where you don't know what it takes, so you try all sort of different things. And then you're not professional at times because you're not supposed to be because you're young, you're a junior, you're enjoying tennis. On a personal level, I'm very happy. I'm together with a lovely wife for almost 10 years. It's great, you know. I'm happy it's the way it is really.

Q. 15 slams is such an incredible accomplishment over a long period of time. What qualities are you most proud of that you brought to this achievement?
ROGER FEDERER: To the sport?

Q. No, that you brought to achieving the record of 15 slams.
ROGER FEDERER: Uhm, just the fight, you know, because I'm famous for, you know, being all casual and relaxed out there, not showing much. But, you know, we all know how different it was, you know. So for me to come get the player I am today, I mean, I'm surprised, you know. Just because I didn't expect it first of all. I never thought I could be this consistent, that great of a player with so many qualities, you know. Because I know I have qualities everywhere in the game. I know I have also some deficit, you know, which is normal, too. Unfortunately, you can't practice everything in tennis. We play too many tournaments. So we don't have the chance, you know, to work on our games enough. That would be interesting to see if we had six months off, you know, how could you evolve as a player. But there is a certain calendar, and we got to work with it, you know, trying to play well for the short period of time we can, and then also try to work on the game but also have enough breaks. So it's quite interesting how a career goes. But I think I've handled many things the right way, you know, including the media, my personal life. I'm happy where my life has sort of improved, I would say, because it's so much fun on the tour right now. I love traveling. I always kept things happy. I think that's key, you know, to a long career.

Q. What does it say on your T‑shirt?
ROGER FEDERER: "There is no finish line. Far from done."

Q. How do you feel about being a legend, except feeling good?
ROGER FEDERER: I don't know if you're a legend as long as you're still playing the sport. So let's wait and see.

ATP - ROGER MAKES HISTORY!

In a dramatic encounter that lasted over four hours Roger made history today! He defeated Andy Roddick to land a record-breaking 15th Grand Slam title in a thrilling final in Wimbledon, winning 5-7 7-6 (8-6) 7-6 (7-5) 3-6 and 16-14.

His words after the amazing success were: "It's not one of those goals you set as a young boy. It feels amazing. I don't play tennis to break records, but this is a great one to have." Roger is the first tennis professional ever to have reached the mark of 15 Grand-Slam titles as he broke Pete Sampras' record. Pete followed the epic match in the
stadium today.

It was a hard piece of work for Roger as Andy Roddick pressured him with his strong serve. The two stretched the match all the way and played the longest set in tennis history! Roger was the happy winner today, with Andy surrendering a good loser.

And now Roger regains the world number 1 spot after his glorious victory - way to go!

Federer Beats Roddick at Wimbledon for Record 15th Major Title

July 5 (Bloomberg) -- Roger Federer became the first man to win 15 major tennis titles, beating Andy Roddick in the Wimbledon final that lasted more than four hours and finished on the winner’s only service break. Federer defeated Roddick 5-7, 7-6 (8-6), 7-6 (7-5), 3-6, 16-14 on Centre Court at the All England Club to pass Pete Sampras in the Grand Slam record books. Federer will replace the injured Rafael Nadal of Spain at the top of the rankings on the ATP World Tour tomorrow. Sampras watched the match from the stands, seated beside other former champions including Bjorn Borg. Federer acknowledged Sampras when the American arrived during a first- set changeover. Federer threw his racket in the air as Roddick’s forehand flew out on the first match point. He had squandered six previous break points. The 30-game final set marked the longest in tournament history. The previous record was 24 games in 1954. The record-breaking win, following a difficult season in 2008 during which he lost his top ranking and Wimbledon crown to Nadal, leaves him as one of the world’s greatest athletes. The Swiss won his first French Open last month after losing three straight finals to Nadal, a Spaniard who was ousted in the fourth round in Paris this year and skipped Wimbledon because of knee injuries. “His achievement is more difficult than what Tiger Woods has pulled off,” seven-time Grand Slam champion John McEnroe said, comparing Federer with the world’s top-ranked golfer. “He’s running, he’s playing on different surfaces. Doesn’t Tiger just have to play on grass?” The 27-year-old’s accomplishments brought praise from sportsmen across the world.

Worldwide Acclaim
“What he’s doing over there and what he’s done throughout his entire career has been pretty phenomenal, just his consistency in the slams, the biggest events, he’s always there,” said Woods, who regularly exchanges text messages with his Swiss friend. Federer cemented his place in the history one month after he won his sole Roland Garros championship to tie Sampras’s 14 major victories. The American, a seven-time Wimbledon champion, hailed the Swiss as “the greatest ever” after that match, which made Federer only the sixth man to win each Grand Slam tournament -- Wimbledon and the Australian, French and U.S. opens. “It’s an unbelievable effort to have 15 Grand Slam titles,” Rod Laver, who won all four majors in one year in 1962 and 1969, told reporters at the All England Club before the final. “And, of course, Pete Sampras has got 14, which was an unbelievable effort right there.”

‘Best of Era’
Breaking the record makes Federer “the best of his era,” said Laver, who doesn’t like to compare different times because of equipment changes and different playing styles. “It’s amazing what sort of shots he can come with from impossible positions.” Federer’s victory in Paris lifted the weight of expectation off his shoulders, nine-time Wimbledon champion Martina Navratilova said. “The monkey is off his back,” she told a press conference in London. “From now on, everything is a bonus. It’s going to be fun to see him play the way he wants to play.” “He’s an all-time great,” Bud Collins, a broadcaster and tennis historian for more than 40 years, said in an interview at Wimbledon the day before the men’s final. Like Laver, Collins won’t compare players from different eras. At Roland Garros, Federer took advantage of Nadal’s early exit against Robin Soderling of Sweden. The Spaniard had stopped Federer in Paris in the previous four years, while he also took his Wimbledon crown last year in a five-set final that took 4 hours, 48 minutes and was called by McEnroe the greatest he’d ever seen.

Tears Fall
In August, Nadal ended Federer’s record 237-week run at the top of the rankings and again beat the Swiss in a five-set final at the Australian Open at the beginning of this season. That defeat left Federer in tears during the award ceremony. Federer still needs to get the upper hand over his nemesis, Nadal, to be considered the greatest of all time, Collins said. The Spaniard has won 13 of their 20 matches.

Federer’s run to 15 major titles started six years ago at Wimbledon.
“There are milestone wins that you’ll never forget,” Federer told reporters at Wimbledon the day before the final. “One of them was obviously my first Wimbledon victory here in 2003.” Another milestone was becoming No. 1 in the world in 2004 after winning the Australian Open. “It was a wonderful feeling, like feeling on top of the world,” he said.

Slam Streaks
Federer played in a record 20th Grand Slam final, breaking the record he shared with Ivan Lendl. He’s also made 21 consecutive major semifinals. That record probably never will be broken, other players say. “The consistency in the big tournaments is ridiculous,” said Andy Murray of Britain, who lost in the semifinals to Roddick. “No one will ever match that.” Federer’s victory robbed Roddick of a chance to end America’s longest Grand Slam drought in the men’s game since tennis admitted professionals in 1968. Wimbledon is the 23rd major since Roddick triumphed at the 2003 U.S. Open and no American man has won one since. Andre Agassi had been the only other American male to reach a major final since then, losing to Federer at the 2005 U.S. Open.

Betting Favorite
Federer was the 1-8 favorite to win his sixth Wimbledon title at British bookmakers Ladbrokes, with Roddick at 9-2. Federer’s odds mean a winning 8 pound bet returns 1 pound and the original wager.

His historic run isn’t over just yet.
The Swiss, who is expecting his first child with his wife, Mirka Vavrinec, this summer, wants to compete in the 2012 London Olympics. “Mirka’s dream was always that our child can see me play as well,” Federer said. “I have to play a few more years just because of Mirka. The 2012 Olympics here at Wimbledon is something I’m going to be a part of.”

Jeszcze daleko do końca

Wcale nie kontrolowałem tego meczu, czasami frustrowała mnie własna bezradność w gemach serwisowych Andy’ego - mówi po fantastycznym finale Wimbledonu jego zwycięzca, Roger Federer.

Jak porównałby pan ten finał z innymi?

Roger Federer: Był trudny, bo Roddick zagrał świetnie. Wiem, jak radzić sobie w piątych setach, jak grać w finale Wimbledonu, ale czułem się inaczej niż poprzednio. Przed rokiem walczyliśmy z Rafaelem Nadalem z głębi kortu, teraz była to rywalizacja serwisów i returnów. Klasyczna gra na trawie. Wcale nie kontrolowałem tego meczu, czasami frustrowała mnie własna bezradność w gemach serwisowych Andy’ego. Może dlatego satysfakcja jest większa.

Jaki wpływ na sukces miał wygrany tie-break drugiego seta?

Był kluczem do dalszych zdarzeń. Zdecydowanie zwiększył moje szanse. Czasem się wygrywa przy stanie 0-2 w setach, ale ten wynik postawiłby mnie w bardzo trudnej sytuacji.

Wie pan, jakie są myśli rywala po takiej porażce?

Tenis jest czasami okrutny. Wszyscy to wiemy. Ja też znam to uczucie. Ale myślę, że Andy był wielki, nie może po tym meczu spuścić głowy. Będzie jeszcze mocniejszy.

A jak smakuje piętnaste zwycięstwo wielkoszlemowe?

Lubię to uczucie, jestem szczęśliwy. Złożyło się na to wiele pracy, lata doświadczeń, ale dziś sądzę, że jest to także coś niezwykłego, wręcz szalonego, że mogłem tak wiele osiągnąć w tak krótkim czasie.


Pierwszy tytuł zdobył pan w Wimbledonie, piętnasty też. Odczuwa pan w Londynie jakiś rodzaj sportowego przeznaczenia?

Ten turniej na pewno znaczy dla mnie najwięcej. Moich pierwszych sportowych idoli zobaczyłem właśnie tutaj. Czuję także, że historia mojej kariery zatoczyła pełne wimbledońskie koło. Widziałem na trybunach tak wiele sław, które przyjechały zobaczyć mój rekord. Szczególnie miło mi się zrobiło, gdy dostrzegłem Pete’a Samprasa. Ten rekord przecież dla niego także wiele znaczył. Cieszę się, że oni wszyscy tak mnie docenili. Moja kariera jednak się tu nie kończy, daleko jeszcze do tego.

Zdobył pan tytuły w Paryżu i Londynie oraz odzyskał nr 1 w rankingu bez gry przeciwko Nadalowi. To nie zmniejsza pańskiego sukcesu?

Nie sądzę. Tenis taki właśnie jest. Wszyscy spodziewali się Murraya w finale, a nie było go. Ale to nie jest wina tego, który ostatecznie wygrał. Oczywiście to smutne, że Rafa miał kontuzję i nie grał w Wimbledonie, lecz jeszcze ją dostanie tu i gdzie indziej. W tenisie sprawy biegną szybko.

Można stawiać pomnik

Po ostatniej piłce wimbledońskiego finału pomyślałem sobie o przeznaczeniu, które musi wpływać na nasze życie.

Rok temu Roger Federer, lider męskiego tenisa, przegrał na londyńskim trawniku mecz stulecia z Rafaelem Nadalem i w konsekwencji zaraz potem stracił pozycję nr 1. Reputację uratował na krótko, w Nowym Jorku. Cztery miesiące później w Melbourne płakał na korcie jak bóbr po kolejnej bolesnej porażce z chłopakiem z Majorki i cokół pod pomnik najlepszego tenisisty wszech czasów wciąż stał pusty. Ale wiosną tego roku wszystko się odwróciło. Na pewno znaczenie miały kontuzje rywali albo ich słabsza forma, ale tak naprawdę Federerowi pomógł przede wszystkim własny geniusz. W Paryżu odwrócił losy trzech przegranych już właściwie pojedynków: z Jose Acasuso, Tommym Haasem i Juanem Martinem Del Potro. W Londynie przez cały turniej szedł jak burza, ale w finale poczuł presję i zagrał mniej agresywnie. Mimo to wyszedł w tie-breaku drugiego seta z opresji, z której na dobrą sprawę nie ma wyjścia, a w piątej partii, dłuższej od kobiecego finału, przypominał szachowego arcymistrza zręcznie omijającego wszystkie pułapki.

Federer definitywnie przeskoczył wszystkich sławnych kolegów zgromadzonych w niedzielę w loży królewskiej, a ponieważ zapowiedział, że nie odkłada rakiety, to w przyszłości będzie się mierzył już tylko z własnymi rekordami. Znany z sentymentalnych reakcji Szwajcar przyjął wszelkie hołdy bez emocji. Za to – o paradoksie – łez nie potrafił powstrzymać pokonany Andy Roddick. Chłopak z Teksasu zagrał w Londynie turniej życia. Nie dość, że popsuł Brytyjczykom święto z Andym Murrayem w roli głównej, to jeszcze prawie skradł finałowy spektakl samemu Federerowi i omal go nie pokonał.
