Sweet 16 for Roger Federer

Who is this guy? Is he from this planet? Is he human? Is he real? What is he made up of? Flesh and bones?

I doubt it.

With his 16th Grand Slam and 4th Australian Open championship, he has reasserted his greatness on world tennis.

People who don’t follow tennis for squats, you are missing out on history. Stories will be told about him. Legends will arise. Folks will recall these days and proudly say, “I was there”. We are witnessing the greatest phase in tennis history. He is possibly the single most dominant athlete in world sports today. We are audience to one of the greatest individual sportsperson ever to walk the face of this planet.

What Bradman is to cricket, Federer is/will be to tennis.

How else can you explain his performances on a tennis court? Or can you?

Players who loose to him must bow in respect. They were Federized.

As the master of ceremonies said yesterday, “Murray, you brought out the best in Federer. Not sure if you really want to do that.”

Words of wisdom for sure. Why would someone want to bring out the best in him?!

Nothing fazes him. Not the youth of his opponents. Not the pressure of maintaining supremacy. Not even the distractions of being a parent.

Federer is in a league of his own. And he is far from finished.
