Re: Fed's tears justified?

it's fucking awesome that he cried, that's how bad he wanted it, that's how much it meant to him. If he was a pussy he would have found a way to justify the loss to himself, to tell himself just getting to the final was a great accomplishment, blah blah blah. Nothing wrong with crying, and he didn't steal Rafa's thunder for christ's sake, Rafa will go down in history as the 2009 Australian Open Champion, the first spaniard to ever win it, blah blah blah, and a USO away from a career slam, he can spare a little limelight for five minutes.

Re: Fed's tears justified?

All my respect for Roger went flying out the window today. Him breaking down in tears after the match was akin to a ten year old boy crying after being beat in a game of monopoly. His tears stemmed from being bested by Rafa yet again. He can't handled being number two and he most definitely can't handle losing, especially to Rafa. Yeah, he can surely dish it, but he's not man enough to take it.

We all know Federer has a history of temper tantrums that's been well documented. It was a real big problem in the juniors and It even spilled over into the early stages of his professional career. Federer has went on record talking about how hard it was for him to get past it. What happened after the final was Roger regressing into his familiar role as a bad loser. Seeing Roger balling like that revealed a lot about his character and I'm not impressed.

Re: Fed's tears justified?

I don't think he could help it. I find it hard to imagine that if he could help it, he would have chosen to break down and cause a scene. He's never given me serious tool vibes before. So, I find it hard to fault a guy for bawling when he clearly couldn't help himself. I don't find it hard to giggle at the uncomfortableness of it all, though.

I lack direction.

Chocking makes me sad.

LOL. You think being a match away from an historical achievement and fulfilling a dream that he has had since he first started playing tennis is comparable to a game of monopoly? :retard:

Football is one of the few areas of life where even if you're untutored, you can go to a ground and see George Best beat three men, and you can realise, 'I have seen genius.'

a temper tantrum?! he was distraught. he had just battled for over 4 hours against his biggest rival in front of his idol, and had lost. he knew that all the criticism he had managed to deflect after the USO would come flooding back, and he would have to face endless comments about the end of his career and the start of a decline.
and he's not allowed to cry?

I don't understand your view at all.

ROGER & JANKO & LE MAGICIEN & Stan & A-Rod & Novak & Rafa

I don't agree. When you work hard for something and give it all you got, it hurts like hell if you fail. I haven't been to a GS final, but I can imagine how he felt.

Re: Fed's tears justified?

cut the crap that he is human and bla bla bla

the tears were pathetic , he has got 13 GS and will eventually get to 14 and more, it was just a tennis match and not his retirement

have some fucking empathy, all of you who criticise him for displaying natural human emotion.
I totally agree with you.

Re: Fed's tears justified?

Rafa should pay him back when he beats Federer next time, and celebrate like crazy his win and his achievements.

Fed is not #1 anymore and he should learn to deal with it!!!

Re: Fed's tears justified?

He is a pussy and a mean one too.

Roger had all the advantages,
A cupcake draw,
His pigeon getting the open roof
An extra day rest while being number 2.

I am glad Rafa is the Fed blocker. I loved it!

For all those who think this wuss cried because the loss was just so monumental, remember this is not the first time. He is a girly man. Here is the wuss with Henman.

Re: Fed's tears justified?

I honestly don't think Roger could help it, all of his emotions just came flooding out. He reminded me of a hormonal youngster who just can't control it. I did feel terribly sorry for him and for Nadal. I thought Raffa looked guilty and really sad tbh. His eyes said it all as we all know how much he admires and respect Fed. I don't think this was premeditated on Roger's part to deflect attention away from Raffa. I actually think Fed is a really emotional person even when things are going well for him. I found it uncomfortable to watch as I thought Fed will never live it down.
