What’s in the news
Roger Federer has, of course, completed the career slam, so he’s better placed than most to comment on which is the hardest to win.

So it’s got to be the French Open, right? After all, Rafael Nadal basically owns the trophy to the point that Federer has stopped bothering to even turn up.

SO that’s got to be the hardest to win, right? Maybe not…

“[The US Open] is maybe the toughest to win out there and everybody plays well on the hard courts, that makes it even more difficult and everybody’s back,” said Federer.

“I’ve come very close in recent years. Not the last two because I just haven’t been healthy but this year I feel really good about my chances.
