Such a bizarre score. First double-bagel since 1891.

Fed does the 3-peat. First player to go 4-0 in Slam finals.

I'm speechless. I guess congrats are in order, but I don't think he needs them anymore.

Poor Lleyton, I feel sorry for him. That was a very nice handshake/hug though, he showed his respect and didn't sulk off.

What's so funny 'bout peace, love and understanding?

Federer the best player I've seen

for the record I didn't see Borg, Laver or Emerson

Oh... my... god...

Poor pooor Lleyton Hewitt... he really tried that 2nd set. Federer should be called the Demoralizer on the tour.

remarkable performance, Roger!

Lleyton fought hard but there was little he could do. It would have been nice if he had taken that tiebreak as a "condolence prize," lol.

Re: Federer - Hewitt 6-0 7-6 6-0!

C'mon, it's clear that Hewitt's game fits into Roger's style perfectly. Just like Henman's does to Hewitt. Roger's test was no doubt the Agassi match. Ever since he won that one I knew the title will be his.

Pete Sampras - no yelling, no bad language, no fooling around, no showmanship, no media obsession, no nonsense. He just let his tennis do the talking. Enough said.

I was a teenager when that happened. It was one of the best matches I saw that year. Mats was totally dominant that year; unfortunately, complacency set in, and Mats did not win another Slam. He was a joy to watch, though.

Re: Federer - Hewitt 6-0 7-6 6-0!

well, normally right now I'd be watching the final (which was on delayed telecast here by about 2 hours), which is currently in the first few games, and be able to watch it right through til the second set tiebreak on the edge of my seat, but my fucking dad came out of his room after listening to the radio and told me the score before the game had even started

Just checked the stats and it didnt look as though Lleyton played all that badly....just the service was a smidge down on his last 2 matches, so that scoreline....cant believe it

I might leave this place for a few days and come back when Fedex is done telling us he told us so

A great tournament Lleyton...just came up agains the best....

I didn't know he got to the final of Roland Garros before?
