Yes, Yes, Yes, Yes, Yes, Yes!!!!!!! I love you, too!!!!
Great people are here!!!!! Thanks, indeed!!!!:wavey :

Re: Fed's tears justified?

He did congratulate Rafa, the difference is that Roger is an honest person, not an obsequiousness as another players. Too praise is false, all this guys wants to win. Rafa´s speech of: "Roger is the best, Roger is better than me, I love Roger, I have a picture of Roger in my door´s room, I´m just lerning, I have to improve a lot, Karanusic is favouriter than me, I though I was going to loose, I was so tired, I couldn´t even crawl" is annoying. I don´t find this humble. Sorry, I don´t want to be mean with Nadal, is a good guy, but I found Roger more sincere.

That's just wrong, Nadal is a great guy. I'm a fed fan. You have to consider Uncle Tony - He has always praised Federer and effectively told Rafa to model himself on him off the court. That's not a bad thing. IMO of all Tennis role models, of all sports, Federer is probably only second to Woods in terms of "role model".

Federer also happened to be a brilliant Tennis player too.

Federer is justified to cry. He works hard, expectations are so high (still). And he keeps losing in the Final in 5-sets to the same guy.

Re: Fed's tears justified?

I mean, for what it is worth, when that match ended I almost started crying. Then again, that was because I was angry and the match started at 3:30 am where I live, so I only got 2 hours of sleep and was in a really bad mood.

As I said, I didnīt want to be mean with Nadal, maybe is his personality I donīt know. But I donīt think people is being fair with Roger. In tennis and in life, is allowed to cry, and we are here saying if itīs right or not.

Re: Fed's tears justified?

Nice to see Nadal making loads of new fans because of his 'classy behaviour' at the ceremony

see, Nadaltards should at least thank Roger & his 'little episode' for giving Nadal the platform to display his classiness

Re: Fed's tears justified?

Well, it really spoiled the glorious moment for many, including myself.

He is not to blame if he could not control his emotions and it just happened. Which is likely what really happened.

What is a real shame, an utter shame on him, is the post match interview. Crap like (from memory, not quoting) "Anything can happen in a five setter, not always the best player wins". Or "I try to serve more to the lines, Rafa just tries to has his serve in, that's why I DF", or "he has advantages, I wish I was a leftie" are not the things you say when you accept your defeat. He is being childish, and lost in denial. The best player wins the fifth set, specially if the score is 6-2. Rafa 1st service always seeks the lines and corners. And we have not seen a #1 leftie since MacEnroe.

Compare that with Nadal interview after Wimbledon 2007. He was mentally and phisically destroyed, and it took him almost 10 months to win again. Yet he was all praise for Roger and never suggested anything about a fifth set not being won by the best. Or take Roddick from his own finals.

Nadal career prediction: 6 RG, 2 Wimbledon, 1 Australian Open, 1 US Open, 2 Master Cup, 20 Master Series, 65 titles.
(Predicted before RG 2008 when he had 3xRG)

It's no different that what Nadull always does. Nadull has an excuse for every loss.

Re: Fed's tears justified?

This thread doesnīt even make sense. He was humilliated in the French Open, he lost his opportunity to win 6 consecutives Wimbledon Slams and now he disappoints himself and his fans when he was so close to achieve Sampraīs 14 Slams record. The pressure was too high, everyone was there (the Legends), it was the moment and Federer couldnīt do his job. There were many factors that contributed to the mental breakdown of Fed. I cried with him because you could really feel the pain of Federer, he really wanted to lift the award, but he couldnīt... If this is not enough to make a man cry...

And of course, there are the accusations of Fed ruinning Nadalīs ceremony... He even took the opportunity to speak before Nadal, in that moment of despair, of sadness, he respected his opponentīs moment. I donīt have any doubts that Federer regreted crying, but the man of ice couldīnt control it. He loves to win too much. And who can blame him?

Thumbs Up for Nadal, even tough i donīt sympathize a lot with him he showed true sportsmanship in that awkward moment. It must have been really strange to Nadal to see Federer in that mindset. The moment of the hug was truly unique.

It spoiled your moment? I guess you forgot two people play the match, one lost and one won. For Federer it evidently meant more. For Nadal it doesn't matter he can play for another few years at full (or better) health. He will play atleast 12 more grandslams.

For Federer every loss brings him a barrage of haters, a barrage of "he should retire!" and a media journo's giving him pressure. Every loss brings "Federer can't beat Nadal". "Federer too old". "Federer won't break record". "Federer isn't GOAT". To be honest I would cry every time I lost if there was that kind of pressure.

Re: Fed's tears justified?

Federer was supposed to be a stoic type, the same in sharp pains and in joy. But he repeatedly teared down this image of himself and now again... and it's always AO where the most embarassing scenes happen

Grand Slam Season as of 2008:

Australian Open
Roland Garros
JOKE SLAM
U.S. Open


Right word in the right moment - a glass of watter in the desert.
