The fact that this Grand Slam win comes five years after he won his last makes the victory very sweet for the Swiss Superman.

Nadal fought very well. Of course, a Federer-Nadal encounter is expected to go down to the wire.

Had the Spaniard won, it would have been his 15th and he would have surpassed Pete Sampras as the man with the second highest number of Men’s Singles Grand Slam victories. Nadal was obviously dejected by the loss.

Usually, the victor often gets so busy with the win that he forgets the pain of the one who he defeats. But Roger Federer is no ordinary victor – he is the God of his game, an equivalent of Sachin Tendulkar in cricket.

As Nadal looked on in anguish, Federer had these beautiful words to say:

 

Federer knows very well how great Nadal is having tasted defeat at the Spaniard’s hands himself on many occasions. The 35-year-old knows that the 30-year-old Nadal will certainly win more Grand Slams.

This is a stellar example of sportsmanship. Federer’s words indicate that rivalry can be very healthy. And since Nadal, too, has said nothing but praises for Federer whenever asked, they prove that the greatest of sportspersons are like great warriors – they do not hate, they respect each other.
