Default Roger Federer creates history

Roger Federer has won the Musketeer Cup and has etched his name in the history books. He is now the sixth player to win all the 4 grand slams. The last person was Andre Agassi.

Roger is now tied with Pete Sampras with 14 wins and is looking in top form going into Wimbledon in two weeks time.

He played well in the final and was in full control through out the game.

Go Roger go.

Anyone saw the prize distribution ceremony after the match ? Superb coverage !

Specially when the Swiss National Anthem was being played and on screen there was the Swiss flag and a super imposed super tight close up of Roger Federer with tears flowing out of his eyes and streaming down his cheeks !

Classic moment .

Roger Federer is now the greatest...

... after Sampras, Ivanisevic, and Agassi, in that order.

Sampras Serve'n'Volley was better than Federer IMO. Sampras still had the greatest 2nd serve of all time. No way any clay courter was going to maul Sampras on grass courts like Nadal did to Federer. Sampras was virtually invincible at Wimbledon.

Federer has better game than Sampras overall especially on Clay Court where Sampras was outright horrible.

Am not sure about the order because Ivanisevic has very limited play (powerful serve and not very reliable volley), where as Agassi is far better and consistent player than Ivanisevic.

Ivanisevic on his day can beat anyone and when he loses his cool , he can lose to anyone

An amazing entertainer .

Yes & the way they interview the players & make them talk to each other is splendid.

I don't like Federer at all. He is a cry baby in my book. A sportsman cries once, maybe twice in his career. This guy cries at every grand slam.

I do like him very much but i too don't like when he acts like cry baby so often.In-fact he also made a very strange comment after his Aus open loss.He has at post match presentation,"O'man this (losing to nadal) is killing me."
