Federer wins Tennis Masters: Somebody stop him!
Posted by Sports Snob on November 20, 2006
Federer has beaten Blake and won the Tennis Masters. Anyone had a doubt about the winner?
This guy is incredible! He has won everything in sight, except the French Open, beaten everyone within sight and is so far ahead of his nearest competitor that people are constructing a beast from players across ages to even compete.
I don’t see how the next season is going to be any different. There isn’t a competing compatriot. He is pretty much playing against himself and his demons (does he have any?). Federer has to beat history, inconsistency and Nadal at the French, at best. If he does these next year, he will be hard to bet against as the greatest player to play tennis in the Open era.
I mean, he will then only need to play doubles as an individual to prove himself.
PS: Nirmal Shekar writes about Federer here and Keats makes such an obvious choice to describe the Swiss maestro’s game. Nice article.
