He couldnt help Ok so why not afterwards say something like.....

But he's not sorry he dosent care its all about him all the time. Like the Murray favorite thing the guy took such offense. People don't think he's the best anymore, he should deal with it.

Sampras GOAT

FC Porto. Arsenal.

Del Potro. Murray. Nalbandian. Soderling. Useless Gil.

Yes, if he could.....but, think a lot....., there was a prize-ceremony!!!
But, those "somethings stupid" are you dreaming at night?

Re: Fed's tears justified?

Can't remember last time I saw anything as pathetic as Fed crying yesterday. Those WImby tears with JMac were kind of understandable more or less. It was Wimby, Feds ground so to speak, and it was the first time he lost something that big that he already had. I mean he could always say to himself I lost AO on account of mono or bad chicken or whatever. FO was never his in the first place so...

But this! I dunno,... I was like 'WTF is that?!' Could you be that much sorry for yourself, that your ambition (and there doesn't seem to be a bigger one AT ALL in the world) is to be unfulfilled? I mean you had it for sooo long, streaming the likes of Roddick in the finals and making fun of him, all from the upper hand position, than those remarks (Rafa a 1D player and so on)... than those rationalizations of his, that always leave the impression he thinks as if it was all up to him...

And as if that wasn't enough so he cries. BWAAAAA!! Call your mommy and sob to her cause youaint to be the GOAT! How freaking pathetic! Worse than when Blake Carrington found out he was his own father!

And Nadal.... now I'm really not fond of the word "class". In my language it associates me with something that my grandpa (a WW2 vet) told me people who though had it - were hanged... but this guy - Nadal - total and complete class. No comparison really. Reading Tony's interview the other day at Bodo's it all makes sense. It even appears Rafa actually felt sorry for Fed, like that hug and all was for real. How cool is that?! Totally cool.

reliability...

Just different points of view. He alredy said in the ceremony "I don´t want to have the last word, this guy really deserve it" or something like that, I think that was enough, and maybe not everybody believes that he took Rafa´s moment.
I don´t think is that easy being Roger Federer, to be dealing with all the things he has to deal with, too much pressure, it must be awful. Rafa is still in the pink part of the history, as Roger in the begining, let see what happens in a couple of years.
I still remember the press and a lot of people saying that Sampras was done, and then he shut everybody up.

Re: Fed's tears justified?

What an old fashioned discussion! Why are men not allowed to show their feelings?? I love Roger for not hiding his tears. It shows how much this tournament means to him. To see that a player leaves his heart on the court makes tennis special! And receiving the trophy showed that Rafa is a great player but when he put his arm around Roger's shoulder he showed that he is a great champion also. Roger's tears didn't ruin Rafa's ceremony but made it even more special

Re: Fed's tears justified?

Argh.

Nadull has no personality. I wonder how people have the guts to write something like that.

Was it pathetic that Frauderer cried? Yeah it was. Especially because he had the match in his hands and gave it away. Was it out of place? Of course. He should have cried during the match, after losing what? 15-16 break points?

but is tennis only about roger winning? so he cannot accept loss or praise his opponents. his feelings all about himself not winning the 14th....

he should show a little bit respect to his oppoonent, congratulate rafa.

so yes roger is a human, that's why he should be able to have a bit self control

You will learn as you mature kiddo.

Personality isnt about fancy TV interviews at Lenos, or crying --- "showing your emotions on a plate"... its about character. Its about knowing where you stand and who you are, and not being succeptible to changing of personality due to diff circumstances. That means you are who you are, you are a person, not a clown who changes faces to please somebody.

reliability...

You could tell by Laver's face that he wasn't happy about Nadal winning. Laver lavishes praise on FedererToo true! It was written in his face!!! - since when has he done the same to Nadal? It's like Laver said recently...the artistry has gone out of the sport. Men's tennis is going the way of the women's, just simply clubbing the ball. The only difference is the added topspin.Yes, ugly to see, but mortally efficient What rubbish professional tennis has become in the space of only ten years.

Re: Fed's tears justified?

I'm not reading through 12 pages, so sorry if this has already been said.

Fed couldn't speak and they were going to have Nadal speak first, but Federer mustered up enough to speak first, saying that Nadal deserved to speak last as the champ and he didn't want to ruin that for him.

If that doesn't show that Fed's heart is in the right place, you are living under a rock.
