Roger Federer wins Australian Open in epic final against Rafael Nadal

That was next level tennis. Both of them with nothing left to prove, just playing their hearts out.

The crowd was wild. They love Rafa. But they adore Roger.

And Roger's speech:

"I'm out of words and Rafa said so many great things. I'd like to congratulate Rafa on an amazing comeback.

"I don't think either one of us believed we'd be in the finals in Australia when we saw each other at your academy four, five months ago. And here we stand. I am happy for you. I would have been happy to lose to you. The comeback was perfect.

"Tennis is a tough sport. There are no draws. If there were I would have been happy to accept one tonight and share it with Rafa."


When you compare 2009 to 2017, it feels like the completion of an arc.
