Federer Takes the French Open

Roger Federer won the French Open this afternoon in three quick sets, but the tennis match against Robin Soderling was far from uneventful. Before securing his 14th Grand Slam and tying Pete Sampras for the record, Federer had to deal with a wild spectator rushing the court and, strangely enough, attempting to place a hat on his head. The scary moment—security was slow to react—was quickly pushed aside after the second set and Federer won 6-1, 7-6 (1), 6-4, cementing his status as the sixth man to win all four Grand Slam championships.
