Do you like this story?
I don't care what people (read as anti-Fed) would say about this but Roger Federer is now officially the Greatest Of All Time, a monicker that people have always been uncomfortable associating the term to him with.
He has equalled Pete Sampras' record of 14 major titles but he has done something that Pete has never done, he has conquered the Roland Garros, a tournament that has almost always been associated with Spanish claycourters.
I've been a Roger Federer fan since he upset Pete Sampras on that fateful match at Wimbledon 8 years ago. People have described his brand of tennis as poetry in motion and since then, everyone has been hooked on and in awe.
To Roger, congratulations! All your fans love you!
Rafa can take the number one ranking as long as he can. Andy can now appease his countrymen by winning his Wimbledons. Novak can mimic other players for as long as he wants, as long as he doesn't fake injuries midmatch. Roddick can finally add to his 2003 US Open. I absolutely care not. Why? Because Roger is the Greatest Ever and all contradictions can now be put on my comments page.
