Fed: Doubles didn't help me at Olympics

This is hilarious. A tennis magazine account tweeted that Fed said this time around the doubles at Olympics didn't help his singles "unfortunately". Wawrinka retweeted that!!

Re: Fed: Doubles didn't help me at Olympics

Seriously? They lost in R2, it's NID that it didn't help his singles play as 2008 did by giving him confidence for the USO.

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

Poor Stan. He stoically takes whatever snide-eye Roger throws his way.

I don't actually understand the comment.
In 2008 he lost before the medal rounds in singles; here he got a silver.

Roger Federer * Greatest Of All Time

Re: Fed: Doubles didn't help me at Olympics

Yeah maybe it didn't help him but why did Federer think he must say it ? So people can blame his failure on Wawrinka or what? And how did it help in Beijing btw?

No doubt hideously out of context.

Re: Fed: Doubles didn't help me at Olympics

I don't get it. If it's about them winning in 2008 giving him confidence for USO then I fail to see what's funny about it.

Educating MTF clowns one post at a time.
So many fanboys to troll, so little time.

Favourite tennis matches: 2011 US Open Final & 2012 Australian Open Final, starring Novak Djokovic & Rafael Nadal, showing us just how far science can take humanity.

The US Open Final was especially enjoyable, with 'Why are there white spots all over my body?' Djokovic and 'Why am I sweating boils?' Nadal embarked on a titanic battle, concluding with the inferior player, Nadal, entering a sort of delirious state of psychosis. This allowed him to, while showing very little fatigue, consume inhuman amounts of energy, before he literally ran his legs from underneath him. This is truly the stuff dreams are made of.

It probably is. What's funny is not whether Fed said it or not - we'll get the transcript soon enough - but that Stan retweeted it! Poor Stan - anything Rog says goes.
