Woods Lauds Federer Before His Victory

SHORTLY after Roger Federer won his record 15th grand slam title at Wimbledon, Tiger Woods sent the Swiss a congratulatory text message.

"I think it was 14-all when we were all on the putting green, and then I went to the range and I heard that he had held and then he broke to win," Woods told reporters. "Great job. Now it's my turn", he said before he teed off. The American then went on to win the AT&T National tournament.

Woods said he and Federer occasionally prod each other with competitive banter of text messages.

Last month, Federer won his first French Open, while Woods won the Memorial Tournament, at about the same time.

"He won the French and I won Memorial, so it was kind of let's do it on the same day, let's do it again today," Woods said of the tone of messages. "His (wins) are a hell of a lot bigger than mine, though. He won two slams and I won two tour events. Hopefully I can get the majors now."
