Roger Federer hopes to keep reigning title at French Open

By Greg Hernandez

HollywoodNews.com: Roger Federer begins play at the French Open today where he is the defending champion and the number one seed.

Even though he is the greatest male player in the history of the game and still at the peak of his powers, most experts consider four-time champion Rafael Nadal the favorite going in.

I say it’s never a good idea to count out Federer who is also the reigning Wimbledon champion and won the Australian Open in January. In all, he has won 16 grand slam singles titles – a record.

Federer told reporters Friday at the tournament’s draw ceremony that arriving at Roland Garros this year “felt different because I have so many great memories from this court now, whereas in the past, I mean, I played good matches, but I couldn’t come back and think, ‘This is where I’ve had my most emotional wins in my career.’ I didn’t. They were all at Wimbledon or U.S. Open or other places.”
