Let's face it - Fed can't be arsed for ATP 1000!

Although in Cincy he really did care and took it to Murray & Nole to take the title! So I'm not absolutely certain that he won't pick his spots.

Re: Let's face it - Fed can't be arsed for ATP 1000!

It's funny how things change, I remember the days when Federer was pilloried for being great at the tour events and flopping time after time in the Slams. He was the king of winning small tournaments and then crashing and burning in the first round of the big ones, and now we've done a complete 180.

By the way, the guy who doesn't care about Masters Series is equal second this year for MS titles. As pointed out in another thread, this "doesn't care about the other events" rubbish has never once been offered as an excuse by Federer himself, and is simply a disguise for the fact that he's now average and extremely vulnerable over best of three sets.

The Wit and Wisdom of the Tennis Journalist, Indian Wells 2004

ROGER FEDERER: Yeah, I remember this one time when I went on a vacation on the Maldives. That was in the year 2001, I think. I went to this spa. I went to walk around with my girlfriend. I walk in, and we want to book a spa. This guy goes, "AHH, I remember you. You beat Sampras. I saw you on TV." That was like, really, how can you remember me? This guy has probably never been off his island and still knows me. I was a little bit shocked. Then I went to play tennis with him because he was actually the tennis teacher. It was nice.

Q. Were you naked at the time in the spa?

ROGER FEDERER: No. It was at the front desk. I didn't walk in naked.

He cares about clay masters, but the others......not so much. Since Sept06 he's made 5 indoors/hard masters finals, won three (21 events in that period). Same time he's made 12 slam finals, and won 7 of them.

Typical Fedtard logic, when he wins he was trying, but when he loses he wasn't and doesn't care.

That's probably because hardcourts over best of three is the best possible scenario to face him, being the most equal surface, with the greatest number of contenders, over the shortest distance.

Blimey o'riley, I agree with you for once. He was actually fined for tanking in his early days, I doubt he wants to invite the same suspicion now that he's at the pinnacle of the game.

Some things are impossible to disagree on.

for people who think Fed never adjusts to other peoples games

hehehe- EVERYONE fears the GONZO FH




God is Love. To know Love is to know God. So ask yourself if you hold any hate for another in your heart how can you have room for Love, room for God

Re: Let's face it - Fed can't be arsed for ATP 1000!

Boring, don't come up with this crap because everybody knows he is losing because he is not as good as he used to be in best of 3 format. That's it. Still, he is much better than most out there.

didn't he lose to Cañas back to back in IW and Miami a couple years ago?

Well, that's the moment when Fed started declining in my opinion. He was still very good that year, winning 8 titles, but he never became what he was before those two losses to Canas.

Re: Let's face it - Fed can't be arsed for ATP 1000!

dont agree with that, there is no reason he shouldnt have given a good account of himself for this event as he'd played 1 tournament in the last 7 weeks and has the off season around the corner as well

for the #1 player to keep losing these 3 set matches from winning positions and in such gutless fashion is worrying - its a deeper problem than saying he doesnt care about the event. if that was case why didnt he just lose 6-3 6-2.

Re: Let's face it - Fed can't be arsed for ATP 1000!

far too many times when he wins the 1st set he goes to sleep in the 2nd... returning like an idiot - if he can even be arsed reaching for the serve in the first place

you cant put it all down to smaller events coz the signs of these kind of things started to show in the US Open Final as well

Re: Let's face it - Fed can't be arsed for ATP 1000!

To be honest, I'll worry when he starts losing in early rounds at Slams, but now? I enjoy his play and marvel when he plays well and enjoy his play and laugh when he's FedError

Spot on. And then he's too proud to do that. If he didn't want to play he would have stayed home and paid the fine, as a way to say, "I don't agree that we are forced to play tournaments we don't want to", in line with his proud character.
