i picked your post apart and carefully explained, again, to you what i was saying and you still return with the misinterpretation that is in your head.
i give up. i don't know how else to explain it to you. i really don't.
Probably because you don't actually understand what
I'm saying, even though it's incredibly simple.
What i said has nothing to do with federer playing badly as federer did NOT SAY he lost because he played badly. please re-read the article in the OP.
He said " sometimes i lose because the opponent played better than me." my posts have been about this "sometimes". in my opinion, federer is implying that there are other reasons or excuses for his other losses. you know the ones that are not covered by this "sometimes." these are the discredited players i'm talking about.
Yes, I know that. I guess I have to spell everything out to you, using as simple terms as possible:
1.) Federer said he sometimes loses simply because his opponent plays well, i.e plays at a level above Federer's 'normal' level.
2.) This implies that at other times he loses because he plays below his normal level, i.e plays badly: for example when he doesn't make enough first serves or makes too many errors with his forehand.
Conclusion: Federer is claiming (or implying) that sometimes he has lost because he has played badly.
And the question I've asked several times, which you haven't yet answered, is what's wrong with that? What's wrong with admitting that you're sometimes below your best (for whatever reason) and sometimes lose as a result?
i then pointed out the double standars which would allow people like you to defend such choice of words when MTFers don't seem to like it when players try to make excuses for their loss. they simply just want them to say the other guy played better than me and move on. Not only "SOMETIMES"but "ALL" the time.
In a technical sense, a player always loses because his opponent played better. That's why he lost! The question is why
were they the better player, and Federer is indicating that at least sometimes this is because the other player is below par. That's what the "sometimes" indicates.
From that it doesn't follow that the reason was injury. In any case, MTFers object to Nadal's injury 'excuses' because they believe they're fake, and attempts to 'justify' Nadal's poor form. They don't deny that Nadal sometimes is in poor form.
By the way, saying you lost because you played badly is discrediting the other player. ask serena, she has come into a lot of hate for saying exactly this. this is because you are saying the other guy didn't really win because he played really good or better than you instead he only won because you were crap. if you beat someone would you want them to say it was because they played badly why you won?
If it's true then it's just a fact you have to live with, or you're only deluding yourself. Note that Federer never singled out any specific players, though, and his whole point was to emphasize those times when his opponent plays well, and the press don't
pick up on it.
