Wow, 6-1, 6-4 beatdown on Delpot. That's pretty sick.

Funny how a guy who just can't play flawless tennis any longer can still punish the rest of the tour.  :whistle:

Slowing down a half step has really helped his game (except for the serve of course!). :\

Olderer owns everyone not named Nadal, Djokovic and Murray. Not bad for grandpa.
Then we will fight in the shade.

I dont think he minds playing Murray and Djokovic. Its only Nadal that causes him real headaches.

agassi won a grandslam at 33......here it's federer ffs, he trains as hard as anyone and still moves so good.......he is not olderer/grandpa, agassi was.......

and so much for the argument of slow courts hurting fed......with this title, it's proved yet again that slow playing hardcourt is right up there with fed's most preferred surface.......and if it's indoors and low bounce too, that's like his dream surface.......
Marian Vajda to Novak Djokovic, "I saw you beat that man like I never saw no man get beat before, and the man KEPT COMING AFTER YOU! Now we don't need no man like that in our lives."

i demand french open to be renamed RAFAEL GARROS

del potro showed glimpses of his old form during french and wimbledon last year but really he's continuing to struggle in a couple of aspects, serve and movement.......

What a nice post! :applause:  Roger actually did look pretty good in this match - better than he did against Davydenko (but then, Davydenko was playing pretty well too and hugging the baseline, whereas Del Po was 5 feet behind the baseline!). 

At any rate - I'm glad Roger won the title.

Actually Agassi last won a grand slam when he was 32y 9months @2003 AO. That's the upper bound. That means Roger has until 2014 French Open to win another grand slam. After that it will be almost impossible, but he will make one last GS final like Agassi @2005 US Open. Imagine a 35yo Roger battling it out against some 24yo young buck.
Then we will fight in the shade.
