Roger, the Great

For a year and a half now, I have been frothing at the gills, exhorting Roger Federer to come to net, to serve and volley, to play more aggressively.

Good man, he finally listened to me.

Yesterday, in defeating And Murray handily in 3 straight sets, he became the first tennis player of any of the 12 genders to win five Wimbledons in a row and five US Opens in a row.

He was magnificent and a joy to watch.

What can I say? He's Swiss; us Swiss tend to be a bit conservative and hold back.
I'm glad he listened to you :)
