A grass act

It is Roger Federer again, in all the heat surrounding the worldcup football we forgot this champion player who won his fourth successive Wimbledon championship.

If that is quite a feat to accomplish, then how about winning 47 matches on the trot on grass courts.

The man Federer beat in the finals is no less than the Clay court master Mr Nadal. A great match between two champion players ended with Federer winning 6-0, 7-6 (7-5), 6-7 (2-7), 6-3 in four sets.

Federer missed a milestone created by the legendary Bjorn Borg in 1976, winning the title without dropping a set. Nadal did well to take the third set to tie-break and win it to deny another feather in Federer's cap. Want to know about more on the champ? Go here
