Fed's tears justified?

Obviously he was gutted.

But seriously could he not have held his tears in until after the ceremony??
Making Nadal feel bad for winning was uncalled for imo.

Go Andy!

Re: Fed's tears justified?

Nadal understood that Federer was only crying because he knew he'd have to go home to fat Mirka and get flattened tonight. I'm sure he took no offense.

Re: Fed's tears justified?

Wow i cant believe how anyone would think that
I actually cant believe how he held up all the times he lost to Rafa. Especially last year at Wimbledon.
Hw would never do that.

Re: Fed's tears justified?

Why can fans never just be satisfied with a victory for their favourite player and instead have to bitch about this and that the whole time?
That Rafa won the title is all that counts. To forbid Roger his tears is beyond words. Tears are emotions and natural.

Re: Fed's tears justified?

wtf? he was devastated, he'd just lost a match he could have won, to the guy he can't seem to beat lately, in front of his childhood hero, and he was physically and emotionally drained. he didn't cry after Wimbledon, let him cry now. I think it's quite clear that he wasn't trying to steal Rafa's thunder

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

Re: Fed's tears justified?

Roger never really felt bad for so many players that he beated repeatedly over the years. He always enjoyed the moment with smile. I dont know if you noticed but Rafa tried to calm him down and thats class. Federer was arrogant most of the times and didnt have any mercy.
Even after the match if you read his comments he is still arrogant.
Doesnt take a lot to see what a person he is. I never felt sorry for him.
And I am not writing this cause I hate him, this is the truth and I believe everyone who isnt fan Federer can see it.

I agree with you actually. I respect Roger for showing emotion.

My point is how uncomfortable the winners ceremony was it should of been a joyous ocassion , but everyone seemed really subdued because Roger was crying. I think he could of composed himself better.

Go Andy!

It's funny how you say that anyone who isn't a Federer fan can see it, and yet, people who actually have had contact with Roger for more than 3 hours at a time behind a tv screen have nothing but wonderful things to say about him. They don't have to say complimentary things about him (a la Sharapova), but they do anyway. I guess that says what a person he is. Oh wait, I guess you with your superior insider knowledge know that he is an evil, conniving person who tries to steal others' moments of glory.

I think he obviously tried to hide his tears (what person in their right mind wants 20,000+ people in a stadium and millions others watching to see him cry?), but he was just too physically and emotionally exhausted to try and hold them back. When you're that drained mentally, you can try all you want, but the tears will come.

Re: Fed's tears justified?

hm... roger was just thinking about himself all the time. he should have just congratulated rafa and then cried like hell in the locker room like what he did in wimbledon.
instead he behaved like a spoilt kid.. so selfish....

nevermind, this is who roger is. he couldn't handle loss in a hc slam to rafa

rafa looked embarrassed and felt sorry for winning...

i feel sorry for rafa

I´m sure his life is not all about tennis. He´s obviously just very dedicated to it, and he had a chance to equal Pete´s record. Of course it was an emotional moment, and there´s nothing wrong with that. He was genuinely moved, I really don´t think he was trying to steal Rafa´s moment.
