Re: Federer takes on role as backroom power broker (ATP future and situation)

these people are so desperate to claim anything. This article is just an article , actually it's more like a press release. Federer needs all the media brainwashing that he can get. Just this week he said that he deserves to be number 1 no matter what. The man always takes digs at other top players when he is safe through the media but he would never say so in their face. He deserves to be ignored and ostracised no matter what the media tries to say.

It's hilarious how the first page is only Fed fans. The other haters are warming up the caves.

Yeah, right, that's exactly what he said

Roger Federer says Novak Djokovic deserves the year-end No. 1 ranking. The Serbian reclaimed the top spot last week after losing it to Federer when the Swiss won Wimbledon. Djokovic is guaranteed to the end the year at No. 1, regardless of what occurs at the ATP World Tour Finals.

"The real number one, we know who that is going to be, it's going to be Novak, so I think there should not be any debate around that," Federer told reporters. "Number one, you don't get there by chance. The rankings are something that show you how you've played over a 365-day period.
I mean dude, honestly, if you're gonna hate at least don't make up stuff that doesn't exist.

2. is isolated for the orientations against younger top-players (Murray will always back Nadal, and Nadal and Djokovic shared common wills/interests)

3. this kind of "coordinating job" when you don't give the main orientations is not very cheerful

4. he has many other things to do, is the most interviewed player by far for instance, and he's a father of two young twins

but apart from being concerned in the future of the Tour and feeling that after Ljubicic left this job, not many others could have done it, I think he actually likes and is interested in such kind of things, at least he said so.

And more impressively he seems to be very good in organizing oneself, managing a very busy schedule and separating his mind into several parts. This is surely the thing which impresses me most (Roddick also said he was impressed by that actually) as I think very few people understand how busy he is and how many different skills it implies.




Daaaaaaamn, that felt good.
Exactly how to handle a hater.

Ah, appeal moderation? Wanna know what appeal moderation did to me?
LOOK AT ME!
LOOK AT ME, BOY! THESE ARE THE SCARS OF APPEAL MODERATION!
Take a good long stare, you know you want to.
You're not even man enough to look at my face.

Appeal moderation isn't pretty, you have to watch your friends go to dust.
Appeal moderation is always hungry for your soul and sweet emotions.


First and once godly-worhispped appeal moderator.

Haters are getting sloppy. This way it's not fun anymore. The haters are just joking right?! Or do they seriously hate a person (Roger Federer) that much.....

Re: Federer takes on role as backroom power broker (ATP future and situation)

OMG now we know why he lost to Shangaï! Spending so much time out of court with tiresome political struggles!

Proud supporter of El Tio , the greatest genius alive!

Alchimists transform iron into gold. Boriiiiiing!
Movie-makers transform dreams into reality. Yeah, whatever...
El Tio transforms Dull into a multiple GS champion! Daaaaamn!

El Tio has the keys to weather, court speed, draw making, umpires' decisions and perception of time between points, top players' fatherhood, and my libido!

This signature is in no way ironic. Please don't ever let El Tio think that, for my sake!

This is really good.

Hopefully Roger continues his great work, and resolves other issues to do with the ATP.

I still think he needs help from the other top players, I mean, they need to be on the same wavelength, and then we may get somewhere.

hey hater, Federer has been like this for years (thus why he has so many Stefan Edberg awards)

There's nothing to hate here, sorry about that

Oh poor federer , everyone just hates him and who wouldn't with that snarky smug smile of his?
Why don't you quote it all ?

''The real No. 1, we know who that is,'' Federer said, referring to Djokovic. ''I don't think there should be any debate around that. The rankings is something that shows you how you've played over a 365-day period. OK, it might all change again in two months at the Australian Open
That's about as typical of federer in making grandiose assertions, speaking in authoritative way and talking out of both sides of his mouth. Even his soft stetements are very dubious.
