I don't hate him... I just like controversy & attention.

Federer is a competitor. I don't think any competitor loses on purpose.

Of course not. Roger's too professional to do that.

If he tried to lose, he certainly didn't show it...
You surely didn't see the match if you suggest that!

Re: Did Federer lose on purpose in order to avoid playing Nalbandian?

LOL! You guys really make me laugh hard, ja ja.

Come on....I know he maybe didn't want to face David, but if things were given like that, I'm sure he would have tried hard to beat him......but come on...to lose on purpose? and at home? NO WAY!

Aren't all love stories destined to fail?

I'm sure he didn't lose on purpose. Professional players, and specially the best ones, the Top 10, never lose on purpose (or they souldn't)
