Re: Fed's tears justified?

its justified, he is an emotional guy, but (no sarcasm), no need to feel so sorry for him, after all, he has 13 slams, while many has none

Rafa! Rafa! Rafa!

Epic movies, like brokeback mountain, are seldom found in the industry or worthy for the mainstream viewer. As often as I have watched the clips of this movie, I always find something more to it. For one, the gay stuff doesn't enter the picture for me, only the dimension of the highest love I have ever witnessed in life or on film.

Re: Fed's tears justified?

I think that Roger was so sad and the tears were out alredy before he could consider that:
*He could be "stealing" Nadal´s moment
*He could look weaked or too emotional
*He could be analyzed and critizied by everybody who has a minute to think about the crying
*He could look bad in the pictures
and so on.
He was devastaded, he cried. Big deal. I cried too and I didn´t loose, I didn´t have Rod Laver by my side, I wasn´t ovationed by a lot of people, I didn´t loose the oportunity to tie an historical record, I wasn´t feeling the support and the sadness of the fans (and I don´t have fans). So I keep saying that we have no right to say if his tears were or not justified.

i think that would be true if he was retiring but he isn't. i think he cried because he lost to nadal and because he's a very confident person, it hurt his pride. hehe. that's what i think.

Re: Fed's tears justified?

Never extend sympathy for this fool. Ever. While on top of the world he swaggered and preened about like an emperor over lesser men, all too ready to pour salt on the wounds of the vanquished. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WUi7Is7H54M

What a delicious moment it is. Fellow Fedhaters, our moment of reckoning has finally arrived. Mwahahah!

Keep fueling the fanboy wars. So much for tennis discussion.

No doubt I feel now what some of the Roddick-angst. Of course their man doesn't have 13 slam titles, so it's much worse. to all Roddick fans.

Re: Fed's tears justified?

Federer's tears only made me appreciate Rafa's personality more. The way he took his loss in Wimbledon 07 and how he handled the situation yesterday showed he is such a great guy with a golden heart.

Re: Fed's tears justified?

It's not the first time Fed has cried after failing to win a final, and yeah, we all know how big this occasion was and how important the win was here but he lost to the man across the net who played a better match than him. Are his tears justified or not? That's just a stupid fucking question, plain and simple. He hasn't done himself any favors by bawling his eyes out like that but really, it's not like this was his plan all along if Rafa won. Is he a pansy? Did he steal Nadal's moment? Who cares. Rafa didn't seem bothered by it, perhaps embarrassed for Roger but eh. I also agree with what Wimbly2004 said.

Vamos Rafa

Re: Fed's tears justified?

When Novotna cried, I felt bad for her. She was leading and she choked. And she wanted Wimbledon so badly.

Federer on the other hand, could have handled himself better. I did feel bad, but really. Be a man, control yourself. It's not like he was leading the entire match. If anything, he was behind. I got annoyed when he refused to stop crying even during the photoshoot. Geez!

Of course not. True tennis fan's support Guccione, who displays what tennis is all about for one or two rounds every grand slam before getting kicked out.
