In a great and LONG match, Roger Federer won his 15 major today by beating Andy Roddick 16-14 in the fifth set.

Truth be told, Roddick has Federer dead to rites today and SHOULD have won the 2nd set as he was up 6-2 in the tie break but still lost the set. Also, he only lost his serve once in the match and that was the last game of the match.

As happy as I am for Federer, I have to wonder how this plays in Roddick's mind knowing he played a almost flawless match (at least serving wise) and STILL lost.

Anyway, congrats to Federer. Now, onto the Open.

Life is hilariously cruel.

Just an absurd match. Roddick played the best game of his life, Federer looked to be at 80% of his peak, and Roger still got the win. Roger's good; he's real good.

Excellent match. Also cool to see the late arriving Pete Sampras joining the other legends in the stands to watch history be achieved. Rooted for Roddick, but had no problems watching such a classy champion further his own legacy.

And yes, Roddick should be losing sleep tonight over his choke (McEnroe's words) in the 2nd set. Had him dead to rights and let him escape. I "knew" it was over at that point, but stuck around until the end and even had hope that Roddick seemed to be getting close to breaking Federer on serve in the 5th by actually being able to return a decent portion of his serves vs. Federer seemingly having difficulty picking up Roddick's.

Again, good match.
