these people are so desperate to claim anything. This article is just an article , actually it's more like a press release. Federer needs all the media brainwashing that he can get. Just this week he said that he deserves to be number 1 no matter what. The man always takes digs at other top players when he is safe through the media but he would never say so in their face. He deserves to be ignored and ostracised no matter what the media tries to say.
Whether you love or hate Roger, he's still the most popular player in the world by a wide margin There's no one that attracts crowds or fills arenas like him.
He has a great personality, and he praised Novak vociferously for his year end #1. A journalist at the WTF Press Conference asked him: "Nole is the Year End #1, but will you feel like the REAL #1 if you win WTF?" Fed answered that the real #1 is determined by the rankings, and Novak fully deserves that spot. He was gracious and classy as usual.
