So didjya hear? In a small respite from cricket domination in the world of sport Roger Federer beat Robin Soderling to bag his record-tying 14th Grand Slam Championship at the French Open today. Federer’s 6-1, 7-6 (7-1), 6-4, win over Soderling marked his first French Open title, (the only major tournament title he hadn’t won yet, he’s been the runner-up in the previous three French Opens.) It was his 14th Grand Slam title overall, tying Pete Sampras for the record of the most major tournament titles in mens tennis. Federer is just the sixth male player to complete the personal Grand Slam.
On a totally random note doesn’t he look A LOT like Arbaaz Khan? Not that I think looking or acting like the grumpy Khan brother is much of an “advantage” but who knows he did manage to marry the super hottie Malaika Arora. Maybe he can pull a “Hollywood” and bag a Bollywood film like Shane Warne (he’s probably got some time to kill till Wimbledon anyway.)
Check out this totally adorable sorta smile I captured off the TV. Very romantic hero-esque na?
