What can I say, Roger Federer is the man. A total of 15 Grand Slams and counting.

I just can't get over the fact people were writing him off after losing a few Grand Slam final matches and not winning every other normal tournament. He was still reaching the final's and putting himself in position to win at Grand Slams.

Everyone seems to enjoy someone falling from grace. I find it kind of sad how people enjoy reading about people who have set the bar so high that when they eventually fall, they get joy from watching and reading it. I always had hope in Federer because his numbers proved otherwise. He wasn't the same old Roger we were once used to but he was still better than the majority of players out their on the court.

Too bad Nadal wasn't there standing in his way. Think about this, Nadal might not be the "next one" due to health issues. Knee problems at such a young age can derail this young career before it truly blossoms. Just look at Nadal's game, it is based on running around trying to hit back everything that is thrown at him.

I predict Roger will reach that elusive 20 Grand Slam titles.
