I became a fan of Roger's when I saw him play the final of Miami vs Agassi. I was really impressed with his game, but at the time I suppose he was too inconsistent and maybe not mature enough to beat Agassi.
I never followed him closely though until he beat Sampras at Wimbledon. I used to feel about Roger the way I feel about Safin; so much talent, but total headcases. Now I'm so proud of his achievements. He really living up to his potential (unlike Safin) and although men's tennis may never be 'dominated' like Pete did, Roger has the potential to still outshine the others.
He truly is amazing, isn't he? That's why we love him!
I hope the crowd appreciated all he went thru this week to win it for them!
Rest time now for a couple of weeks before Toronto. Can't wait!
Hopp Rogi! Go Gonzo! Allez Gasquet!
