Roger Federer "Attacked" At French Open

Roger Federer

A man wearing a Barcelona shirt and holding a flag disrupted the finals by rushing towards Roger Federer and tried to put a hat on him during the second set in front of stunned spectators at the 2009 French Open on Sunday (June 7), in Paris, France.

“All of a sudden I heard the crowd, and I looked over and he jumped over the fence or something,” Federer said afterward. “That gave me a fright, just, like, seeing him so close right away.” After the incident, Federer, 27, beat Robin Soderling in three sets and now that he has tied Pete Sampras at 14 majors.

“Now the question is, am I the greatest of all time? We don’t know, but I definitely have many things going for me because I’ve finally won all four Grand Slams and I’m particularly happy reaching Pete‘s 14,” he said.

I hope that guy gets a few weeks in jail to think about his stupidity. It’s a good thing for Roger that it was nothing serious. And did say that the news conference after the match that this isn’t the first time something like this has happened during one of his matches. It’s the THIRD TIME! I guess Roger’s just so damned good it brings out all the nutjobs…

@Passing Through:
Is it just me or does that attacker look a little like Andre Agassi?! I can’t quite remember his name right.

It was a pure moment of horror.

Roger rulez!

FEDERER ROOOCKS!

Jared, you should get more informed. That’s not a Barça t-shirt but a Swiss one (you can actually read Suisse on it and you can also see the swiss flag on his socks) The scarf he’s carrying is indeed a Barça’s souvenir and so is the hat he has on the other hand, it’s named barretina and it’s a typical catalan hat :)
thanks for the info

I Love Roger
Go Roger in WImbledon

Why did this have to be the main story. Jared being an ass as usual.

I LOVE ROGERRRRRRRRRRRRRR!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

best of all time.

so now Barcelona is in Switzerland? the shirt says Suisse…

Always has to be some listillo being silly .. and has touched the poor Federer stand …

Congratulations Roger Federer!!!! You’re a class act and a great champion.

The incident with the guy who jumped onto the court was scary. Who knows what could’ve happened but thank goodness it was just an idiot clown.

That crazy guys name is jimmy jumper.He is known for pulling those stunts.He always does that at important finals

roger played good,but Soderling its not a big rival…and in wimbledon,nadal will be there so….good luck,federer,cause nadal its a BIG rival

GO FEDERER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
