Since I haven't had my say yet, heartfelt congrats to Fed. I mean, I know I talk a lot of shit and whatever but really, if you actually pushed me on it, I mean about 1% of it. It's just tennis for goodness sakes.
And this was a great storyline. For Fed to capture his 14th Slam with the trophy that has eluded him so, yeah, good stuff. I personally don't like his game and I think he's put on this pedestal by fans and journos as being the epitomy of a sportsman, which I totes disagree with, and for the record I do think it matters that he didn't beat Rafa to do it (wasn't the knock on Fed always that he couldn't be GOAT if Rafa dominated him? Not that he didn't have the career Slam), but I know he's a nice dude and if there's one theme from this RG it's that Nice Dudes/Dudettes can come out on top. So cheers to Fed. I raise a cup of fair-trade organic coffee in a compostable cup to you. Because that's how I roll.
Oh, but while I'm at it? FUCK YOU ROBIN SODERLING! And I 99% mean that one.
On to grass!
