Re: Fed's tears justified?

I understand his crying. I'm surprised he didn't do it before.

Another Game for Milos

was it really rafa's problem...? does it not add to rafa's acheivement that a man cries before his feet...? won't nadal take some secret pleasure from dismantleing federer...? now owning 3 of the 4 slams... which is all that federer ever acheived at once...

Re: Fed's tears justified?

I thought it was somewhat wimpish. At least if he had begun with "I'd like to congratulate Rafa...." rather than get all introspective about another devastating loss, then it would not have been such a problem for him. I love Rogi though and nice of Rafa to say those things although you can be sure he won't give away any GS finals to stop his rival crying again.

Re: Fed's tears justified?

"I'm going to make this moment all about me somehow. Hmm. How can I? Maybe I'll punch Rod Laver? No! Maybe I'll take off my clothes! No...that's criminal. WAIT! I'VE GOT IT! I'll cry! That will show them all! Man, I'm incredibly devious! It's all about me again yes!"

Um....or perhaps that's not what happened.

Re: Fed's tears justified?

What a way to rob Nadal of his moment. Feds boo-hooing makes it awkward for Nadal to celebrate his huge accomplishment the way he should be allowed to. Considering the greatness of Fed, I can't justify it one bit. Man up for freaks sake!

It's normal to be gutted after losing a Slam final in 5 sets.

Re: Fed's tears justified?

I kinda felt sorry for the guy but hey Roger its not the end of the world,you have a loving girlfriend and an obviously loving family lots of money lotsa fans who adore you there is always another time.I think what made him cry was the fact that Rafa has beaten him once too many times and he doesnt seem to have an answer on how to beat the spaniard thats whats up.
I really like Roger and hope he wins the FO before he retires.
Its okay to cry Roger no shame in that,it shows us how human you are
Good luck ballerina!

Re: Fed's tears justified?

Who are we to say if the tears where justified or not? are you kidding me? I don´t think he wanted to show how much hurted this defeat, he couldn´t held his tears, it was heartbreaking.
I can´t vote in a poll like this, he just cried because he felt it, he was really sad and he couldn´t helped. He couldn´t leave the place and cry in the shower, you have to be very brave to do something like this. Rafa won, congratulations to him, but live Roger alone. He lost like a man, I can´t be prouder as a fan.

Ugh. Who do you think you are? Such ignorance. So crying doesn't make you a man, showing emotion??

Roger was upset, he obviously wanted this so badly and came very close once again, he had Rod Laver there and the other champions and the crowd was cheering for him, he appreciated it, and obviously the occasion just got to him. I'd like to see you not get emotional if you were in Rogers shoes!

It just makes him even more endearing. It was such a nice moment Poor Roger He's such a champion.

Poor 13x GS champ multi-millionaire Federer. The fact that Nadal had to comfort him instead of him congratulating Nadal was low.

Sampras GOAT

FC Porto. Arsenal.

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

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.

Federer always has been a pansy.

The ATP deserves a better class of player, and I'm gonna give it to 'em - Djoker

Re: Fed's tears justified?

I haven't see that kind of emotional breakdown at a trophy ceremony since Jana Novotna lost to Steffi Graf when she melted down after a set up and serving to go up 5-1.

And yeah, I agree that probably Federer didn't want to humiliate himself in public like that, but still.... He's beaten ever so many people at slams and in slam finals too. I'm sure they wanted it just as badly as he wanted it today, however they managed to remain gracious in defeat. If any one of his opponents in a grand slam final had broken down like Federer did today, I'm sure that they would have been laughed at by most of the posters here. Maybe he couldn't help it, but how is it that others do manage, but he can't? Also, why is it that when Federer cries, it's somehow evidence of just how wonderful he is when those same posters would have laughed at Andy if he had broken down after his bitter losses to Federer at Wimbledon?

When he beat Nadal at Wimbledon the year before last, Nadal wept bitterly in the locker room, but managed to be gracious at the victory ceremony. I'd like for Nadal for once be able to be happy at a slam victory ceremony rather than having to be tiptoeing around Federer's feelings.

Re: Fed's tears justified?

its clear some of you have no souls and have never had your emotions move you to tears. it's obvious you haven't because the emotion federer showed after the match today is something you can't control. some of you people need to get a life or atleast look at your ugly mugs in the mirror. pathetic bunch on here.
