恭喜Federer,生涯第15座大滿貫賽冠軍到手(圖片來源:Reuters)

大仙也喜歡網球很多人都知道,今天沒有足球比賽,來談談剛結束的溫布頓。

昨晚和眾多噗友一起看溫布頓,雖然各自有擁護者,但毫無疑問,我們看了一場偉大的比賽!費德勒(Roger Federer)歷盡千辛萬苦,耗了4小時16分鐘,才以5-7、7-6(8)、7-6(7)、3-6、16-14戰勝難纏的羅迪克(Andy Roddick),奪取破紀錄的個人第15座大滿貫賽冠軍獎盃,以及7年來第6座的溫布頓冠軍。

大仙最愛的是納達爾(Rafael Nadal),也希望羅迪克能圓夢,但對於費德勒驚人的意志,仍不得不豎起大拇指。他在男子網壇幾乎已經達成前無古人的空前成就,但他今年8月8日才要滿28歲,在往後的幾年,肩上已經毫無壓力的費德勒,究竟還能到攀升到什麼樣的境界,能將男子網壇的紀錄推高到何種程度?都將是網球迷很想知道的答案。

球迷更想問的是,在當今網壇,除了納達爾,還有誰能阻止費德勒?

媒體形容羅迪克是「09年升級進化版」,在本屆溫布頓也確實只有羅迪克能給費德勒帶來威脅,在前6輪比賽,費德勒只在第2輪對德國人科許雷伯(Philipp Kohlschreiber)在搶七決勝局丟了一盤,其他都是直落三過關,但A-Rod硬是在決賽將戰線延長到第5盤。

A-Rod首盤率先破發,7-5先聲奪人,不過費德勒在5-5平手時,曾在第11局出現4個破發點但都沒有拿下,反倒在自己的發球局被破,丟掉第一盤。

其實A-Rod非常有機會贏得生涯首座溫布頓冠軍,第二盤的搶七決勝局,A-Rod一度取得6-2領先,擁有4個盤末點,但都被費德勒奇蹟式的救回,尤其是6-5領先時的一記網前反手扣殺出界,讓A-Rod氣勢為之一挫,反讓費德勒反敗為勝拿下第二盤。

所幸第三盤A-Rod仍沈得住氣,在自己的發球局始終保持冷靜,雖然互保發球局,而且在搶七決勝局再讓費德勒拿下,但A-Rod還是很有耐性,第四盤也破了費德勒的一個發球局,將比賽逼進第五盤。

第五盤的故事已經變成一場耐力、韌性、專注和意志的考驗,雙方一直在自己的發球局力守城池,直到第30局才出現第一個賽末點,而費德勒也把握住千載難逢的機會,一舉拿下冠軍。

冠軍到手那一刻,Roger驚喜大叫(圖片來源:溫布頓官網)

這場比賽破了不少紀錄,包括:

•溫布頓男單決賽史上最長long Game(第5盤不打搶7):16-14
(舊紀錄為13-11,分別是1954年Jaroslav Drobny對Ken Rosewall、以及1958年Ashley Cooper對Neale Fraser)
•溫布頓男單決賽史上最多局數:77
(舊紀錄為62,是去年納達爾Rafael Nadal大戰費德勒的決賽)
•費德勒第15個大滿貫賽冠軍,史上第一
(舊紀錄為14,由費德勒和山普拉斯Pete Sampras一同保持)
•費德勒發出50個ace,破個人單場紀錄,只差一次就追平卡洛維奇(Ivo Karlovic)的溫布頓紀錄
•費德勒連續21個大滿貫賽至少打進準決賽,紀錄仍在延續中
(舊紀錄只有10,由Rod Laver和藍道Ivan Lendl所共同保持)
•費德勒第20個大滿貫賽決賽
(舊紀錄是和藍道共同保持的19個)

另外還有即將追上的紀錄:

•費德勒個人第6座溫布頓冠軍,超越瑞典球王柏格(Björn Borg),直追7座冠軍的山普拉斯
•費德勒連續7年至少贏一個大滿貫賽冠軍,明年有機會追上柏格和山普拉斯共同保持的連續8年紀錄

網壇人士都對費德勒讚譽有加,以下都保留原文,有興趣的可以看一看。(他的好朋友老虎伍茲有混在其中)

Rod Laver "Roger's got too many shots, too much talent in one body. It's hardly fair that one person can do all this - his backhands, his forehands, volleys, serving, his court position... the way he moves around the court, you feel like he's barely touching the ground, and that's the sign of a great champion."

Pete Sampras "I'm a fan of how he plays, what he's about... he's a class guy on and off the court. He's fun to watch. Just his athletic ability, what he's able to do on the run. I think he can and will break every tennis record out there."

Bjorn Borg "He simply does not have any more weaknesses left in him. It is such a pleasure to see him play. To me, Roger Federer is the right model for anyone aspiring to be a tennis player. It is such a pleasure to just watch him play. His shot-making has got better and I doubt there is any shot he cannot make in any part of the court."

Jimmy Connors "[In the modern game], you're a clay-court specialist, a grass-court specialist or a hard-court specialist... or you're Roger Federer."

John McEnroe "He's the most gifted player that I've ever seen in my life. I've seen a lot of people play. I've seen the (Rod) Lavers, I played against some of the great players - the Samprases, Beckers, Connors, Borgs, you name it. This guy could be the greatest of all time. That, to me, says it all."

Mats Wilander "I'd like to be in his shoes for one day to know what it feels like to play that way."

Tim Henman "I don't think there's anyone that hits the ball like that. Sure, if you take Roddick's serve and (Andre) Agassi's returns and my volleys and (Lleyton) Hewitt's speed and tenacity, then you've probably got a good chance against Federer."

Tiger Woods "What he's done in tennis, I think, is far greater than what I've done in golf."

Tracy Austin "I've never enjoyed watching someone playing tennis as much as Federer. I'm just in awe. Pete Sampras was wonderful but he relied so much on his serve, whereas Roger has it all, he's just so graceful, elegant and fluid - a symphony in tennis whites. Roger can produce tennis shots that should be declared illegal."

Serena Williams "Roger is obviously a pinnacle athlete across all sports and he just does a great job. He's so graceful out there. I love watching him play. I learn so much from him."

Andy Roddick (on Federer's 21 consecutive grand slam semi-finals): "It's almost impossible. That's one of the most impressive stats that we'll see in tennis."
