Exclamation Death threats towards Roger Federer? :O

This is really bizarre, but Ben Rotenberg and and the 'FedererNews' Twitter account posted something about that. Apparently the security has been tightened.

Hope that's crap, but i just hate to hear stuff like this. Surely that's his last Shanghai tournament, I don't expect him to come back there.

Read something about this on RF.com as well. It seems the RNtards aka Fedhaters are really getting desperate.

This shouldn't surprise anybody who's ever seen MTF.

John McEnroe used to get these as well. Some people in the world just can't get over other people's talent.

ATP - Shanghai > Roger Federer menacé de mort


jeudi 04 octobre 2012 à 14:02


Roger Federer est arrivé à Shanghai il y a quelques heures. Mais le séjour en Chine du numéro 1 mondial n'a pas commencé de la meilleure des manières. Et pour cause : il a fait l'objet de menaces de mort. Explications.

Tout a commencé le 25 septembre dernier quand un internaute surnommé "Blue Cat" a publié sur un site de sport chinois très consulté le commentaire suivant : "Sachez que je vais tuer Roger Federer". Cette annonce était accompagnée d'une photo du numéro 1 mondial gisant au sol, décapité. Puis les menaces se sont répétées quotidiennement si bien que la police chinoise et les organisateurs du tournoi de Shanghai ont été alertés. Ces derniers se sont expliqués sur l'affaire. "Nous enquêtons. Federer est arrivé en Chine et nous avons déjà renforcé les mesures de sécurité autour de lui. Nous espérons que ces menaces ne sont que verbales mais on ne peut en être sûrs. Nous devons donc sécuriser le joueur et sa famille. Nous avons ainsi pris la décision de ne pas laisser le public s'approcher trop près du court à la fin des matches."

Par mesure de précaution, le Suisse n'a pas atterri à l'aéroport principal de Shanghai mais dans une enceinte plus petite, à Pudong. Dans l'après-midi, il s'entraînera à huit-clos.

I hope not, better he keeps playing there. It would send an unfortunate precedent otherwise. Don't let these kind of "people" win.

Seems like a poor attempt to make him skip the tourney. But really takes all the meaning out of sports...

It's unfortunately nothing new for top athletes. The worst example was the Monica Sales incident years ago in Germany, which is why credible threat or not you have to take them seriously and get security. It goes with the position at the top of sports.

I'm sure it was not his first such threat nor probably his last. It shouldn't effect him that much.

Re: Death threats towards Roger Federer? :O

Wait, does that mean if I send Federer death threats he won't come for Wimbledon or the World Tour Finals? Maybe I should have done it this year so he would have missed the Olympics too.

(Joking before I get a ridiculous ban for something like this, the person who sent death threats to him is an absolute piece of shit. I actually wanted to see Murray give the old man another beat down in Shanghai.)
