He Did It!!

–from www.rolandgarros.com

Roger, that is. Roger Federer won the French Open today in Paris, finally receiving the Coupe des Mousquetaires, presented by his friend and former rival, Andre Agassi. He won against Robin Söderling of Sweden in three straight sets: 6-1, 7-6, and 6-4. Söderling started badly today and Federer took advantage. By winning today, Federer won his first French Open title and tied Pete Sampras’ record for number of slams won (14). So now I have two free weeks until Wimbledon.

During the second set today an intruder jumped onto the court and looked like he was trying to throw a flag over Roger or something. Actually, the guy was trying to put a beret on him. I was watching and it happened very fast. Security chased the intruder who then jumped over the net. A security guy from the other side of the court then knocked him down and he was carried out.
