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…

    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

    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.

    i’m with sally….
    when barcelona is in Switzerland??…maybe you shoul look a map,but if you dont have ,like miss north california said….¬¬…thats clever!
    and the best is not talk and comment this,because this guy its what he want,and its not the first time that he do it.

    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
