It's a great Monday, made even better by the news that Roger Federer won the Masters 1000 tournament in Indian Wells, California in the early hours of this morning.

My wife and I woke up at 4am this morning to watch Roger Federer take the court against the giant John Isner in the final.
Roger Federer has been playing great all week, beating Denis Kudla, Milos Raonic, Thomaz Bellucci, Juan Martin Del Potro and Rafael Nadal en route to the final.
Roger Federer will turn 31 in August and he is still as fit as a fiddle, playing and beating the best in the game. It was thrilling to see him hitting winners so cleanly off both the forehand and backhand wings. He was so dominant on serve, out-aceing Isner.
These are the glory days and we hope Federer will back up his great current form with a few more majors in the coming years. I know that one day he will hang up his racquet and the tennis world will lose the greatest player of all time, but for us fans, we dream that he will keep playing, keep winning, and that his retirement will never come!
Based on his form this year, his retirement is not even a thought. Roger Federer is playing sensational tennis, is fitter than ever, and I'm so excited to see what he does at Roland Garros, Wimbledon, the Olympics, the U. S. Open and the end-of-year masters in London.
For now, Roger Federer is heading to Miami for next weeks tournament. I'm loving the tennis and having the privilege of watching the great Roger Federer thrill us with his beautiful game!
Keep going Roger!
