The Fed

I had the chance to watch most of the Roger Federer- Tommy Robredo quarterfinal match at the French Open today. On clay, Fed’s worst surface, he was clearly practicing. Clearly. In the quarterfinals of the tournament he needs/wants to win most. Bear in mind that Robredo is Spanish, something of a clay specialist (all his tourney wins have been on clay) and top 10 in the world. That practice cost him a set but he’s hopeful that it will lead to a Sequential Slam and a genuine opportunity to win the calendar year Grand Slam.

If Fed wins in Paris he’s indisputably one of the top 5 players in history; if he wins the Grand Slam, most everyone will anoint him as the GOAT.

Thanks for the workout, Tommy.
