Last of Strawberries & Cream – Roger wins…

9 07 2007

wimbledon.jpgSo, Rafael Nadal fails to make an impact off clay – and Roger wins his fifth consecutive title, equaling the legendary Bjorn Borg. The 7-6 (9/7), 4-6, 7-6 (7/3), 2-6, 6-2 victory was a veritable feast of tennis – and at three hours and 45 minutes, it was the third longest men’s single final in Wimbledon’s history. A thrilling climax to the sport’s premier event. Nadal was a worthy finalist, and anything but Federer’s best would have meant the Spaniard would’ve gone home the winner.

A fantastic way to end the tournament, congratulations to both Federer & Nadal, but in the end, there’s only one winner.

Federer’s Fifth consecutive Wimbledon win…
