Re: Aussie Open Final
Rafa has figured Roger out. To make the gains on surfaces other than clay is a true feat.
I guess it's inevitable that Federer will eventually win more finals to surpass Sampras, but the competition is getting much better in tennis, which will make it a little tougher to do so.
I'm going to get tarred and feathered for saying this, but Federer played nobody for 3 or 4 years there.
As much as I dislike Pete Sampras, he played in an age of some pretty tough competition- even though he somewhat dominated, on any given day there were players who could beat him.
I'm always surprised at the fact that tennis is not watched more in the U.S. There isn't a more demanding sport, and the things these guys can do with a tennis racket is nothing but amazing.
If you're watchin' a parade, make sure you stand in one spot, don't follow it, it never changes. And if the parade is boring, run in the opposite direction, you will fast-foward the parade. --Mitch Hedberg
