Is it normal for a tournament director to be so into a player?

I, mean, seriously . . . this guy's always lookin' like he's about to give up his first-born son to Fed.





Are there other examples of tourney directors being so in favor of a player?

He's their prized asset; brings the crowd which equates Money

Bjorn Borg:

French Open W (1974, 1975, 1978, 1979, 1980, 1981)

Wimbledon W (1976, 1977, 1978, 1979, 1980)

3 Channel Slams; 4 Consecutive RG; 5 Consecutive SW19

Re: Is it normal for a tournament director to be so into a player?

Yeah, that's just not right for the tournament director to be ass-kissing Fed. I thought it was weird enough that they named a street after him when 1. Federer isn't from Germany and 2. Federer skips this tournament all the time. I don't think I've seen this much ass-kissing from a tournament director before.

rafa cheated his way to another rg
by making them stop play
now that takes skill

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

Indeed, the first stop was asked for by... (the answer is not RN). But you just don't care, do you? Noyhing that doesn't fit your prejudice ever counts, does it? And the whole match was only about the 3rd set, wasn't it? I mean, you've probably been watching tennis for years now, but had never seen the player who ends up losing cruising to take one of the sets, had you? He took the third 6-2, so that is proof enough for you that the other 3 sets were just mistakes, isn't it?

You need to open your eyes, there's more out there than what you see in your dreams. All losers do their best to turn winners into mere losers who got lucky.

Re: Is it normal for a tournament director to be so into a player?

So why don't you talk about the ATP officials being so into Rafa? Like the guy stopping the match every time Novak was winning. Please get a life

Federer obviously helped the tournament a lot and as a result gets the credit for his participations.
