Federer in Aussie Open Final

That was a solid win over Roddick.  Personally, I thought Roddick had a chance at winning at least a set.  Good back-to-back matches for Federer as he awaits the winner of Nadal-Verdasco.  While Nadal is the popular choice, Roger will still have to elevate his game one more level in order to tie Sampras’ record, regardless of opponent.  It seems he’s up for it mentally, so continued best wishes from this end.

I hope Roddick continues to improve.  The change in both physical conditioning and strokes resulted in a solid tournament.  Once the changes have a chance to become more second nature, perhaps we will see an American mount a serious challenge for a major.
