Have Faith Fedfans...Roger is still kicking and strong

The post topic is kinda disheartening...I mean I shouldn't be telling any Federer fans to have faith in our Idol..We have been with him the whole time. When he was at the top of the world and now when he is struggling a bit.But we have to hang in and i am sure he wont disappoint us


I started this post a long time back as you can see above.....even before French Open Semifinal. When Rog played immensely awesome match to break Djoker's Streak of unbeaten matches..I mean that match was one of his best ever games. 30 was just around the corner when he send a powerful message to his Rivals that he can still beat the best. I think this year he had realistic chance to beat Rafa in FO final too. The fighting display he showed should have at least took the match to 5 setter. Alas it was not meant to be. So all we Fed fans waited for Wimbledon. The start was pretty impressive but he fumbled in a Routine Q/F against Tsonga who became the first man to come 2 set down to win over Rog in Grand Slam event. I mean who would have thought that possible!!!!

It was a bitter set back and US Open added more salt to the wound, when in the straight second year, Djoker saved two match points to Edge Roger out in 5 set thriller. As usual the tongues of Fed Haters started wagging, declaring he is been done for. How he no longer can compete against Game's best. I mean common guys, he was still world No 3. Ask any other tennis player and he will tell you if he ever had such a year, he will consider himself Lucky. But since we are talking about Roger Federer here no one gave him any chance.

Rog took a well needed 6 weeks break and came back strong as ever in Basel and he also won the trophy that has been missing from his cabinet, The Paris Masters and while doing so he again set one record. He is the only man to compete in All master Finals. He now is just 1 shy of Rafa's no. of Masters title won. It seems whenever Roger looks anywhere one or other record tumbles.
Then Came London. Here all the other top players were feeling the effects of the long season where once again Roger showed how you can manage your season to get the most out of your Body. I mean he was the Oldest guy in the draw and looked most fresh. He won all of his matches in this year's Finale and he got the most astounding victory over Rafa. the scoreline was 6-3,6-0. He now has bageled Rafa on all surfaces where in his worst defeat to Rafa came in 2008 FO final.

With the Finale win, he has become the most successful player to win the year end tournament ever. He surpassed Sampras and Lendle's 5 titles each. This has been truly the very strong end to his year 2011, which has been not as phenomenal year as  the standards he has set and we are all expecting from him. Lets see how AO 12 pans out. Djokovic already feeling the heat of the wonderful season which he had and looking at these young players like Rafa and Djoker you come to respect Roger for the way he has handled his carrier and have kept his body more or less injury free. I don't have to write anything about his masterclass game. For me he is the true genius and Tennis becomes such a treat when he is playing,orchestrating the whole thing.

This victory in Finales and especially the Rafa route has been truly satisfying. With the high note, he has shown that 30 is just a number!!!!
