Fedrer has done it finally!

PARIS – Oh, how Roger Federer savored every moment with his first French Open trophy.The day has come for which Federer had to wait for three years, he could not hold his tears and kissed the clay with his knees bend. He raised it overhead. He cradled it in the crook of his elbow. He closed his eyes and kissed the trophy. He examined the names of other champions etched on its base. Even in a downpour on Court Philippe Chatrier, as heavy, gray clouds blocked any shred of sunlight Sunday, that silver trophy sure seemed to glisten.Finally, the lone major championship that had eluded Federer was his. With his latest masterful performance, Federer tied Pete Sampras' record of 14 major singles titles and became the sixth man to complete a career Grand Slam.
