How about this:
ROGER FEDERER: Well, you know, Andy is a great player, you have to play really great to beat him, and I managed to do that today. I wouldn't say he doesn't have the tools to beat me, or to beat anyone else for that matter, that's doing him a great disservice, he's won a slam, he's been #1 in the world, even last year at this tournament he had match point against me. And I think a big reason why I have been able to have such great results is that I am so consistent, but I am hardly invincible, and that's been shown several times throughout the year. Those weren't just off days for me, I was simply outplayed. So yeah, there are answers to my game, the question is simply whether players will be able to play well against me consistently. And I certainly think they can, I've lost matches to most of the young up-and-comers, they all have a lot of talent, a lot like me at their age. I had trouble with consistency early on in my career as well, so yeah, I always have to train hard, worry about each match, never take anything for granted. There isn't a single match I can win by just showing up. And of course with Rafa, there isn't much to say, he's certainly shown that he has the talent to beat me consistently, every match against him is so tough, I just managed to find my rhythm today and everything worked the way I wanted in the second set. So yes, I'm very happy with my results the past two days, hopefully I can keep it up tomorrow.

Ah...common sense...: a rare commodity valued by those who idolize the Sultan of Smugness, the High Priest of Hubris...Mr. Federer. Don't call him Roger; only those individuals like El Tigre who travel in his rarefied airspace can call him by his first name
. I get the impression that Mr. Vain (see this link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KX-de...eature=related
spends many an evening watching and re-watching his top shots on youtube. Believe you me: if Mr. Federer is ever asked what a perfect evening for him would be for him, he would be "being home, watching my wonderful, amazing play at last year's [insert tourney except RG here], which I might add is a result of my hours of long work...long work that no one else in the history of tennis, or anything for that matter, has ever put in for the love of themselves...um...I mean their craft"
sawan is going to be very impressed with this thread when he returns.
I have returned to find that, as Martin Luther King said, "Keep hope alive!" After I read the comments by you, RFK and others, I am pleased to find that when the "great and powerful Rog" speaks and acts like Mr. Nice Guy, there are proverbial Totos ready to reveal the fraud behind the curtain...a la the Wizard of Oz.

Actually, that is not photoshop...but an artist's rendition of Nostradamus' predictions about the coming of the, translated in the ancient tongue, "Ego King".
Rafa would be a sad man today if he knew he had ignorant fans like RFK and Sawan
You're right...our exposure of the hoax that Mr. Federer is the living embodiment of class needs to go the way of the Santa Claus myth. The Children who are follow the Pied Piper of Hauteur need to grow up...and recognize the rightful heir to the throne of tennis royalty: Rafael Nadal.
Forgot to mention. Mr. Federer, like Mr. Gore before him, now claims that not only is he a genius on the court, but off...and that it was HE who created the Internet.
