07/27/06 - New York, NY – Defending US Open champion Roger Federer’s website hits a grand slam, according to the editors of TENNIS Magazine, who named it the best overall site for their inaugural “Webbies” awards, listed in the August issue. According to the editors, rogerfederer.com earned the honor because, “The game’s most complete player also has the most complete web site. The excellent feature stories, photos, and cool details put this site in a class by itself – kind of like its namesake.”
