I've been playing & watching tennis since I was 8. That's over 35 years I started playing when Ken Rosewall and Rod Laver were dominating men's tennis back in the late 60's. Then came Jimmy Connors and later John McEnroe. Others along the way included Bjorn Borg, Ivan Lendl, Andre Agassi and Pete Sampras. I've been watching Roger Federer lately and I have to say, I've never seen anyone that plays the game as perfectly as he does. Execution seems effortless and text book. He doesn't lose his cool and pulls the rabbit out of his hat when necessary. Today's match against Andre Agassi in the US Open Finals was a perfect example. After losing the 2nd set and driven to the tie breaker he stepped it up and blew Andre away by realing off seven straight points to take the third. I've seen interviews with Andre Agassi, and I'm of the opinion that he is one of the most intelligent sports figures today. Very smart guy. Here's what he says about Roger. "Hes the best Ive ever played against. Pete was great. No question. But there was a place to get to with Pete. You knew what you had to do. If you do it, it could be on your terms. Theres no such place like that with Roger. He plays the game in a very special way that I havent seen before." Is Roger Federer the best tennis player ever? IMHO, the answer is yes.
