EPIC!!!!  I slept 3 hours. Got up and watched last 3 sets. Roger won final 5 games, 6-3 in the 5th set

In 17', a guy with 17 Slams seeded 17th...Maybe its fitting. Congrats Feds on #18. 

35 yrs 5 months old. He took almost 6 months off to get healthy after injury, and he goes out and wins the Aussie. Awesome.

I'm watching a replay of the final right now. Federer v. Nadal matches are a thing of beauty.

Cheering for Cilic. Never seen a guy break down this early in. Hope he makes a match of it.

Federer just got beat by del Potro.  :surprised:  Roger had double set point in the 3rd set tiebreaker IIRC and couldnt close it out.

Yeah, he had 4 different set points in that tie break. I think the previous two five setters wore on him a bit.

Everyone is cheering for Venus on the women's side, right?

Yeah, the 3rd set of the Venus - Sloane Stephens match was spectacular.

Now rooting for Madison Keys to make it to the Finals.

Roger Federer!!!

Just won his 20th major.  Dude is unreal. Never thought he get here. Even said himself 15 months ago, I think I can get 1 more and get #18

In his prime, over 25 grand slam stretch, he made 21 Finals, winning 15.  Then the next 25, he made 5 finals winning just 1 as Djoker won 11 and Rafa 8.  But now for the 3rd time in last 5 Slams, Roger is hoisting a Trophy at a Major.  At 36.5 years old he won #20

Djokovic has battled some injuries lately, and  isn't the dominant player he was in 2015-2016. Rafa, like Roger, won 2 majors last year, but at times has hard time staying healthy.   Pushing 37 years old, Fed could be the guy to beat at Wimbledon and even US Open later this year

Just watched a replay of this match a little while ago. Man, Roger Federer. So good. Cilic had the momentum going into the 5th set but for some reason got derailed when he lost the first game of the 5th. Roger regained the momentum there and never looked back.
