There'll be No Stopping Him Now.

Roger Federer has climbed the last hurdle in his way to becoming the greatest player ever to pick up a Tennis Racket (and boy what an honor that is right?)

Admitedly it was only a best of three sets match in a relatively small tournament BUT Federer has beaten Nadal on Clay. The score was 2-6 6-2 6-0, which means either Nadal was not at his best or (uh-oh) Federer has stepped it up ANOTHER level. Did you feel that shudder going down your spine Tennis Fans?

Previous to this tournament 'R-Fed' had gone a whole four tournaments without a title. Ouch, he must have been really hurting. This also means Nadal's 81 clay court winning streak is at an end.

"It will be interesting to see how we both react in the French Open"

- Was Federers kneejerk robot response to the victory.  Well what were you expecting from him? Relief, ecstasy, emotion? Nah, this is Tennis people...
