That's what make tennis and golf so different from team sports. In golf, you can have a great round one day, then go out to the same course the next day and have one of the worst rounds of your life. Playing the very same holes. In tennis, you ever see match scores where one player wins one set 6-0 or 6-1, then the very next set loses it 6-0 or 6-1?

That's because typically the players are out there all by themselves competing, and when things start to go wrong, they only have themselves to figure it out. No coaches, no teammates to help pick up the slack. Even with golf you have your caddy who can talk to you about approaches to a hole.

That's when your demons can start to come out and play. When nothing is going right, the answer could be right in front of you but you still can't see it. It's like a bag being pulled over your head and you can't breathe.

Per ESPN, Cilic was dealing with a blister on his foot during the later rounds. He said the blister itself wasn't what caused him to break down, it was the realization that because of the blister, he wouldn't get the opportunity to give his best effort today, in what was one of the most important matches of his career. And the idea of that caused him to break down....

Default Roger Federer gets his 18th Grand Slam win

He's being mentioned as a favorite to take the US Open at the end of the summer. That would give him 3 for the year and 20 total.

A lot will depend on how Murray, Nadal, and Djokavich are playing. But he looked unstoppable on grass. It certainly is possible. Would be an incredible year after sitting out a good part of last year.

Just won #20.

I remember back before Tiger had his fall from grace, Tiger and Fed had a friendly rivalry going about who would win the most majors. I think itís clear at this point.

Happy for Roger. Sad for the way Nadal went out as that would have been a great final. Cilic put up a fight but Roger is the man.

Roger is underrated in terms of his greatness in sports. He is definitely recognized in tennis. However, not only is he one of the greatest tennis players, he may be one of the most likable men to ever play sports.

As great as he is on the tennis court, his foundation is even more important.
Take a look.
