That was epic indeed, for me as a Fed fan.
Even though you probably post it to make fun of him, your hero Rafa knew better and consoled the player he respects so much.
Thanks for posting.
And here's another one. One of the most rememberable moments of Roger's (and Rafa's, of course!) career. I loved it!!!
Rafa showed so much friendliness, understanding and consolation for his heralded opponent there, just perfect, and I will love him for ever for his heartfelt hug with Roger, showning that he - understood.
It's just too sad that quite a lot of IDIOTS claimed all of this kind of idiocy that 'Roger stole Rafa's big moment' and bullshit like that. I still cringe at the comments at that, the complete misunderstandings.
If anything at all, it was rather the opposite - Rafa, unwilfully so, got his chance to show his ... "well, a chance for Rafa to show his quality!"
- and yes he bloody took it there, right on the spot. And rightfully so, showed his greatness as a GS champion by showing his commisseries for his defeated opponent. Like true Knights of Honour do!
An embarrassing yet wonderful scene. Kudos to them both!
