Re: Fed's tears justified?

Again, people. You're missing the point. This is all about bending over without the necessary precautions.

Next time Fed will take some KY and he won't cry.

That Rafa won the title is all that counts. To forbid Roger his tears is beyond words. Tears are emotions and natural.
Ditto. I can not believe that STILL some guys criticize others for crying, very cruel! and archaic...

Roger probably knew that he had balls it up, and was angry with himself for all the missed opportunities. Also everyone seems to be still treating him like the favourite to win, so it is a renewed shock to him when he doesn't . Anger and shock always make me cry rather than pain, and cry uncontrollably which can be embarrassing but totally unstoppable. (I'm female but still)

Rafa wouldn't have cried but Roger did, everyone is different and react in different ways, its in poor taste to judge someone for crying. In a way it's refreshing for a man to be so open with his feelings but in others it makes people feel uncomfortable.

If bitching about him makes people feel better it reflects worse on them than crying does on Rogi
Totally agreed. Rafa has cried many times after winning. I remember his first French Open win... NO BIG DEAL!!!

I think you are missing the point. Few people are criticising Roger for crying. What criticism there is, is about whether the crying was occuring at an appropiate time. I don't think anyone could seriously have any problems with a player, be it Federer, Nadal or someone else, crying after a huge win. The circumstances here however were quite different and I would certainly regard a debate as being quite reasonable.

Definitely. Not many people close to me died yet for me to cry so much.

Err...you cannot always control at what time and at what place you start to cry....

---

I'm far from being a Federer-fan (I sometimes find his interviews arrogant and his gamestyle doesn't appeal to me) but for me, seeing him cry when he just was denied a Slam record and after he lost anothe Slam final to his main rival was really no big deal...if anything it made him look human and sensitive and that is not a bad thing!

So the answer is a BIG FAT YES.

Re: Fed's tears justified?

I'm shocked and disgusted at some of you! Seriously, do you think he wanted to ball his guts out there? He was fighting them while sitting in the chair and you just knew at some point, there was going to be an eruption. He had absolutely no control over it.

It's baffling, here we have a phenomenal tennis rivalry between two fantastic players, one is probably the greatest of all time with the other being the greatest clay courter and moving his way towards greatest player, yet so many of you have major hate on one or the other. Why can't you just appreciate the tennis? They obviously have great respect for one another and for the game, too bad the same can't be said about some people on this board.

ok.
Here is my issue-

Would you agree crying/sadness/upset is an emotion?

How often does emotion surface at the most appropriate times?
I mean that is laughable, its human nature.

When he stepped back his whole jaw was quivering...(i have been that upset) & it is usually a bit of a hysterical reaction and it makes it that much harder to control. When you start having involuntary movements it is hardly your choice.


So Sorry the is no conditioning or strength training to be done in this area.

Re: Fed's tears justified?

Losing the Wimbledon final, the #1 ranking and now this match, you can tell the guy is just losing it by his recent behaviour, not only talking about the crying on the court today but also the constant "goes" he's having at other players. Then again it's understandable considering he dominated the tour for four years, he's just not used to coping with defeat.

You're right, I forgot that, but he added Rafa and the odious Djokovic to his favourites didn't he? I cannae remember. Kinda gets to me though that no one else, tournament organizers, press etc are treating Rafa as the No.1. He still seems to be in 2nd place. Not good. Even Rogi admits that Rafa is numero uno.

I'm sure he didn't plan it, but when others have shown themselves to be gracious losers when he was in his ascendence, it would behoove him to do the same.
Having grown up in Britain, I am used to stiff upper lip and all, don't get me wrong. I just think, it wasn't planned it was spontaneous and you cannae berate him for that.

I do agree that at RG the ceremony was subdued, as with Wimbledon. And that is awful, Rafa is a worthy winner, and he is so cute and humble. But I think at RG they couldn't believe what had happened, and at Wimby, centre court was kinda sad for the end of an era. Roger's dominance has been so extreme that Rafa's continuing disposal of him makes people do a double take. I don't think these instances were provoked by Federer though. At RG he made a joke, same with Wimby (something about the kitchen sink if I recall).

p.s I wasn't directing the bitchy comment at you personally
