Federer Takes the Win, Makes History

The only thing more appealing than watching two attractive men interact, is watching two attractive men (who are among the world’s best tennis players, no less) fight it out on the court.

Even though Federer lost to Rafael Nadal during the finals at the Australian Open earlier this summer, the matches that followed seem to have proved that his early bad luck was only temporary. Yesterday, 2009 French Open winner Roger Federer made tennis history as he beat Andy Roddick after a grueling four-hour, sixteen-minute match at Wimbledon. The scores, 5-7, 7-6, 7-6, 3-6, 16-14, broke tennis records.

While we’re proud of Federer for winning a good fight and keeping us at the edge of our seats for four hours on Sunday, it’s always disheartening to see our favorite all American boy lose. Its even harder to watch cameras zoom in on Roddick’s face, full of disappointment.

“Sorry Pete, I tried to hold him off,” Roddick proclaimed to Pete Sampras, who was watching the game that once belonged to him from the bleachers.

Well, we say: turn that frown upside down, Andy. The US Open is only a month away. A little home-court advantage never fails. Winners win, and you’ll always be a winner in our hearts.
