Federer: Roland Garros is nothing comparing to Wimbledon

http://www.timesonline.co.uk/article...622169,00.html

"If I could choose between winning Wimbledon or Roland Garros, I would always pick Wimbledon. And, looking a long time into the future, if I was to win Wimbledon 10 times but never managed to win the French Open and was then given the choice, I would pick an 11th Wimbledon title rather than a first French.”

I agree with him. How can one even compare..

It doesn't sound like Roger at all!

*cue indignance, spitting of feathers and livid outrage*

The French open isn't nothing, but Wimbledon does indeed rule.

heh Having read the whole article only now, you have to wonder how much the fact that he was being interviewed by a British journo influenced his answers.

Do you really think that Sampras would choose a RG title over his 7th Wimbledon? No way..

Everything he said was okay, and said with true intentions.

Only the thread title was misleading

I don't believe him.

Safin: His Royal Dork-ness
Hewitt: Mowing a lawn near you
Kuerten: tennis in the shape of a heart

Quite possible. The only thing that holds some people from naming Pete the best player ever is the fact that he's never won RG.

really??

but i think it's good for him if he wins the four slams to prove to the world that he's capable in winning on all surfaces

Re: Federer: Roland Garros is nothing comparing to Wimbledon

Wimbledon indeed has by far a greater meaning for Roger Federer than any other GS, but i don't believe him either.
Winning Wimbledon 11 times rather than 10, should be more important to him, than beeing one of the few players in history who won all GS on all surfaces??

"This is not about class, colour or races,
let’s get around and see different places,
put a smile on those distant faces,
wipe away your sorrow with no traces."


All the best to the members of the FedererExpress
