Strange enough, because it's not like this is happening beyond his control. He basically surrendered those matches and the #1 ranking.

Re: Fed's tears justified?

Roger .

Now he knows how everyone else on the tour feels like. He's won 13 Grand Slams, it's not as if he has been a runner-up 13 times and was trying to nab his 1st Slam.

Yeah it's always tough to watch an athlete lose it emotionally after a loss, but for fucks sake keep it together and don't spoil Nadal's incredible achievement. I think this loss sunk in much more deep and he's realizing he is nowhere near as good as he used to be; things will not come so easy anymore and it will be a constant uphill battle.

Re: Fed's tears justified?

I say justified. I am dealing with a lot of self-imposed pressure and have had a few breakdowns lately because of it. This man is chasing history, was so close to getting #14, and just crumbled under the immense pressure. I just wanted to give him a

My thoughts exactly. I felt sorry for Fed (and I am not a fan of his), but just think it's a shame that Rafa felt the need to start his speech saying "I'm sorry" and was made to feel bad for beating Federer, who seems to think it's his Godgiven right to win a slam. Rafa totally and utterly deserved that win, he played amazingly and had to back up a gruelling semi. Fed was just beaten outright and needs to learn to deal with that. I'm sure other people he has beaten in finals have felt the same when they have lost - for them, it was probably their one and only chance they will ever have to win a Slam. I'm sure Rafa was completely gutted after coming so close at Wimby in 2007, so now Fed is just experiencing what all of them have experienced. He has been lucky in his career to have beem largely healthy and injury free, and has the talent to have won all that he has, and for sure he will win more Slams and beat the record. There is no problem in shedding a tear or 2, but just think it's a shame the whole ceremony had to revolve around him (much like everything else in tennis does), and that Rafa couldn't celebrate how he perhaps would have liked.

The circumstances here however were quite different and I would certainly regard a debate as being quite reasonable.
Crying at an appropiate time? How is that? "I feel bad but I better cry later in my hotel room".

Re: Fed's tears justified?

Hi, I am new to the forum but found this topic really interesting. First of all I am a fan of both Roger Federer and Rafa Nadal; and, believe that both are the GOAT where no one at this moment could come close to their achievements. I think Roger tried to hold back his tears, but once tears start to flow its hard to stop them. I honestly feel that he believed he could have beaten Rafa because hc is not Rafa's strongest surface, so he was shocked to see how well he was playing. At the same time however, I do feel Rafa's celebration was subdued due to Roger emotions. If Rafa would have celebrated more outwardly, then people would look at him and go "he's only thinking about himself" or "he has no feeling that Roger was crying". Yeah Roger won 13 GS and people had to sit back and watch him celebrate, but to each his own. If I was playing in a GS final and lost, I would probably be kicking myself in the butt, becaue who knows when you can make it back to the final, even if you are a Federer or Nadal. Criticism could go both ways. Yet you should not be ashamed of feeling angry or crying, and not ashamed of celebrating openly. It all has to do with what is proper at that moment. But hey, people eat up sob stories like hotcakes :-).

Re: Fed's tears justified?

I just rewatched the trophy ceremony, and he did take away from Rafa's moment.

That's twice now Rafa has had subdued celebrations, to mark amazing achievements, because of Federer.

Would Rogi have the same thought for Rafa's feelings? Unlikely.
