Federer: "I won't watch but I hope Rafa wins."

Saying that when Rafa winning would, for some people, indirectly demean his own achievements is a very nice gesture in my opinion.

Also, on Nole: "The guys who overlooked Djokovic don't know anything about tennis."

Quotes from @TennisReporters and @SIOpenSource on Twitter.

Will Federer regain the #1 spot and break Sampras's record for most weeks at the top?

Roger // Rafa // Raonic // Söderling // Goffin // Ivo // Wawrinka // Baker // Delpo

Re: Federer: "I won't watch but I hope Rafa wins."

of course he wants Rafa to get his CGS, he knows history is in the making

Rafael "The Matador of Spin" Nadal
Roger “The Magician of Precision” Federer
Del Potro, Ferrer, Haas, Zeballos

Poor Fed.

I was watching the SF with some fedfanatics and boy they were sad at the end.

One of the girls shed a tear and all..

I don't believe he said that. Show me the source. Fed would never pick sides like that, especially against a player of Nole's calibre. Stop stirring

Not too kind on Nole. Fed should be and is above those people you mention, just the same as Rafa.

Probably best to take a break from MTF whilst the haters (none of which are tennis fans) flood the place.
