Wow man, you've nailed it.

Who are you speaking of here? Fed watching Murray implode on center court? Was he supposed to run over to Murray and hug him?

He is not critizising Fed, but the commentators giving Murray a hard time after his loss.

Exactly. If Murray needs emtional support he should have called the Samaritans.

Eugenie Bouchard is clearly more interesting than Rogi, not to mention donning a far more reasonable snozz.

The text at the bottom also says that Fed won his 7th Wimbledon while Murray had to contend with being runner-up for the 4th time; hopefully Murray can win at a least a slam, by which time the world can finally heave a sigh of relief.

Roger Federer

Good stuff.
Like I said before, Go Take the USO this year, Andy M.!

As a genuine old-fashioned tennis fan, I don't give a f*cking damn about the Olympics, so please to any of my favs, don't spend too much of your energy on that sorry kind of a nationalist showdown.
To ALL players: show yourselves to be a genuine Citizen of the WORLD, in stead of any of that 'playing-for-my-country'-bullshit-slavish-garbage...
