Thumbs up Roger Federer has won all the big hardcourt titles now.

He joins Andre as the only player to win all the outdoor hardcourt masters and the two hardcourt slams. Discuss.

Roger is gonna erase all evidence that Andre was the best player of time.

That's why I was excited about this win, after last year performance I was in doubt that he would ever win Cincy. This complete the picture, both slams and all the master series on HC.

Stan Wawrinka & Roger Federer


Gael Monfils & Jo-Wilfried Tsonga

Hard to say which aspect is more incredible the wins, the game, the demeanor? There's also the incredible wavy hair and deep brown eyes to think about.

Roger Forever !

it is a record and I want to go out on a limb and say it is not beatable
But I used to think that about Pete's 14 slam record and I don't know anymore if I can believe that that's not beatable

Re: Roger Federer has won all the big hardcourt titles now.

When I think of impressive things about Federer, that spidery mess on the top of his head is not the first thing that comes to mind.

Only one other player has won all the outdoor hard TMS events besides Agassi and Federer, and that is the Changster. He was a finalist at both hardcourt Slams, in the same year no less, but couldn't deliver on either occasion. I think Federer was only able to win here because of his post-Wimbledon break; yes, Roddick won in Canada and Cincy back to back two years ago, as Rafter did in 98 and Agassi in 95, but I remember how much Roger complained about the scheduling of these two events back in 2003 when he came here on the back of that tough loss to Roddick.

ROGER FEDERER: Yeah, I remember this one time when I went on a vacation on the Maldives. That was in the year 2001, I think. I went to this spa. I went to walk around with my girlfriend. I walk in, and we want to book a spa. This guy goes, "AHH, I remember you. You beat Sampras. I saw you on TV." That was like, really, how can you remember me? This guy has probably never been off his island and still knows me. I was a little bit shocked. Then I went to play tennis with him because he was actually the tennis teacher. It was nice.

Q. Were you naked at the time in the spa?

ROGER FEDERER: No. It was at the front desk. I didn't walk in naked.

Never won in Canada - in fact, did he ever reach the final there? I'm not sure.

Monte Carlo, Rome, Madrid, Paris. Notice a pattern there? I'll start a thread about it in the Federer forum...

All Roger needs to do is get into the finals, then it's over. He can play like shit all week but come Sunday we see a different player out there. And he knows all that matters at the end of the day is winning the title, not really how you played along the way.
