Roger Federer winning French Open trophy

Roger Federer was already among the best in history of tennis but he lacked something which could make him THE BEST and it was the French Open title. However, the Swiss Maestro’s long wait ended as he put his hands on Coupe des Mousquetaires on 7th June 2009.

Federer defeated Swedish player Robin Soderling to win the French Open and become just the sixth male player in tennis history to win all four Grand Slam titles. The Swiss star should stay thankful to Soderling for his entire life as he cleared his way by beating Rafael Nadal in the fourth round.

Federer had been defeated by Nadal in the four previous French Opens, losing in the semi-final in 2005 and then three straight finals from 2006-08. However, even destiny wanted Federer to win French Open this time and complete his dream as Nadal bowed earlier.

He celebrated in his trademark style as he fell on his knees straightway after winning the last point with tears of joy flowing down his face. What Federer said after the match showed how badly he wanted to win the French Open and how happy he was after finally winning it.

The Swiss Maestro said, "This was my greatest victory. I can now go the rest of my career without worrying that I would never win the French Open."

That 2009 French Open titles also brought him equal to Pete Sampras’ record of 14 Majors and then after one month he grabbed his sixth Wimbledon to break the record.
