Roger Federer Clinched Record 15th Grand Slam in Wimbledon 2009

Wimbledon has experienced another classic men’s singles final tonight as Roger Federer defeated Andy Roddick in a five-set thriller. The score line: 5-7, 7-6, 7-6, 6-3, 16-14- is enough to indicate the kind of competitiveness two competitors featured in the game. With this title, Federer has clinched his 15th grand slam title, and thus, breaking Pete Sampras’ record 14 grand slam titles.

Roger Federer ended up losing last year’s classic Wimbledon final to Rafael Nadal, but this time, the Swiss great did not make any mistake. He held his nerve under huge pressure and produced some excellent moments that you would like to remember for the rest of your life. Well, Federer also had made bad mistakes which do not go with his class, but still you have to be full of praise for this Swiss.

Well, it would be unfair if I do not spend some words for Roddick. I would just use the words excellent and outstanding for the performance of the American star. From the very beginning of the game, Roddick looked pretty much confident and did not let Federer dominate the game. Especially, his forehand shots were so perfect in the game that I think he is the one of the best forehand players of these days.

Roddick took the first set 7-5, despite facing intense competition from Federer. The Swiss star took the next two sets by the same margin 7-6 in tie-breaker. Roddick then came back in the match winning the fourth set 6-3, the least competitive set in the match. A number of unforced errors cost Federer the set, and thus, leading the match to the thrilling fifth set.

It seems all the excitement and enjoyment were left for the fifth set. Both Roddick and Federer appeared with their sturdy look. At one point, it seemed the last set would go on forever, with both players failing to break the opponents. Federer once went very close to win the match when Roddick was serving, but the American bounced back showing his never-give-up mentality and held his service. Well, I would say that Federer could have won the final set some earlier, had he not made some awkward-looking unforced errors while Roddick was on serve.

Anyway, it was Roger Federer who took the final set 16-14 to win his 15th grand slam title. The best part of Federer’s game was his excellent aces which earned him a number of points in the final set. Overall, Roger Federer once again showed that he deserves to be the greatest male tennis players of all time.
