Federer is the greatest

He already has 4 slams, plus he's won 3 slams in the same year something that Sampras and Agassi never accomplished. In a few years he'll be past Agassi and going for Pete's record.

Plus, he has a 4-3 record over Agassi and 1-0 record over Sampras. Roger Federer is the greatest and by the time he's through he will leave all the other so-called champions in the dust.

Even now, you see people like Agassi and McEnroe bow to him and speak highly of him as if he's in another league. Agassi saying that for him to beat the King, he has to play perfect and the king has to have an off day. McEnroe saying that his wish as a tennis player would have been to be as good as Federer.

Roger Federer is the ultimate. Roger Federer is tennis. Roger Federer is success. Roger Federer is GOD.

Wow. 1-0 over Pete, and that was the time when Sampras was going downhill anyway.

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.

Re: Federer is the greatest

I wouldn't say he is the greatest. Time will tell. But He is by far the most talented player I have ever seen. I don't think any body would have a chance if he plays like he did in 1st and 3rd sets today.

Re: Federer is the greatest

He certainly is one his way to greatness and definitely my favourite ever. If he surpasses Pete's GS total or not we will need to wait and see but Roger is number 1 for me! I will keep praying too Dirk

Re: Federer is the greatest

Even if he doesn't win 14 Grand Slams, I still consider Federer to be the best ever. The way he plays the game is just amazing, he totally dominates the points by taking the ball on the rise consistently. And every Federer match I see shots I've never seen anyone else play, he's just godly

Re: Federer is the greatest

Well I don't think anyone could beat Sampras at his best. Nope, not even Roger. So what are the Federer fan-girls and fan-boys going to come up with next? Federer is going to win more than 14 GS titles? He's going to triple bagel Roddick in a GS Final? Sigh...

Re: Federer is the greatest

Awesome Roger…

There are so many Threads open about this, but Federer was amazing.
It is incredible the way in that Roger grows when has to play a final.
Great season!. Big Championship!

Hello, have you even seen this match? Roger has every shot in the book, he can easily beat Sampras at his best. Maybe Sampras could reach one tiebreak, but that's it.
