Mens Wimbledon Finals

Fedex vs Roddick
So how many of you thought it was going to be a wash for Roger playing Andy roddick
Yes he has done the same twice and should be a no brainer
Guess not, This was simply one of the best matches i have seen on tennis ever
yes federer could not break a set of andy roddick and the only time he did he won the championship
Roddick played a great game, the difference in the men was sheer mental calmness and maturity levels to play at ease and not commit errors.
When presented a break point Roger was able to convert, while Roddick had chances in second set at 5-1 tiebreaker, 5th set at 15-40 vs Roger's serves, that he could have easily converted to a championship, but the MENTAL toughness of Roger prevailed
A side note on some historic friendship, i went to watch TIGER WOODS at the Congressional Country club on his final day of the AT&T national PGA and he pulls his cell phone and texts some body before the tee off,
I later realize it was to ROGER saying - Way to go , its my turn now ,
These guys are TRULY in their LEAGUE of their OWN,
Its a sheer talent coupled with the capability to detach themselves from the crowd, attention around and just purely focus on the GAME makes them truly GREAT SPORTSMEN
My sunday July 5th 2009 was a rewarding and fulfilling one , thanks to Roger Federer, Andy Roddick, Tiger Woods and Anthony Kim
