Default Roger Federer is insane

Anyone watching him right now? He's destroying Roddick. I wouldn't bet against him winning all four this year.

CNNSI Sportsman of the Year: Dwayne Wade.

The equivalent of what Federer just did to Roddick would be Wade leading the Blazers to a play-off sweep over the Mavs, Spurs, Suns and Pistons.

The guy is not only the greatest tennis player of all-time, hes one of the greatest athletes of all-time.

Nah, he's like 12-1 all time vs Roddick. A sweep was expected, no tennis player is in the same league.

Federer should retire. OK, we get the point, you're good at tennis, now give someone else a chance to win something.

lol you are so right. When you start dominating, it just makes you want to stop. And plus other tennis players dont want that to happen because they do want o beat him.

That was just crazy last night. I still don't know how Dwyane Wade got SI Sportsman of the Year.

I bet Roddick felt confident before the match because he managed to beat Federer in some stupid exhibition match couple weeks ago.

I think if Roger eclipses Sampras' record most people will say he is the best of all-time. Better even than Bjorn Borg. Guy is just too good, doesn't even look like he's trying that hard out there.

Is anyone near Federer's talent level? The man is some kind of machine.

I'd like him to win the French Open to silence those who say he's not one of the greats yet because he's not won a major on clay. I don't understand this line of thinking because he clearly is a superb player on all surfaces.

I remember watching Roger when he was just an up and comer. It was obvious once he got it all together he'd be a champion.

I woke up in the middle of the night, turned on the TV and realized the match was starting, but figured I'd look at some porn right quick and get back to it later. By the time I had rubbed one out, Roger already had it in the bag. My jaw dropped when I saw the 6-0 second set

Nobody has ever or will ever reach Federer's level. The guy is just ridiculously good. The only time i'd ever bet against him is against Nadal in the French Open, but even then i'd be scared to lose my money.
