Hence Federer = tennis, as confirmed by both fans and haters.

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.

No it's not. Federer = the dictatorship that is MTF.

Something completely different.

Tsonga was far from too strong and too good; except for a few games in the second set Gasquet never showed up for this match. Very disapponted in Richard who so far this season has shown very good focus and fight but that all went out the window in R4 of GS against a top 10 opponent.

If tsonga plays the way he did against Gasquet, Roger will have a cake walk to semis.
However I expect Jo will step it up, he really didin't have to play any better to beat Richard.

Worst thing about this era is that exciting players like Tsonga and Berdych have become boring to stay within the top ranks and it's paid off. In the past, Tsonga would be a dangerous floater who would win a slam or two with his flashy game, but now he's just a boring grinder from the back of the court waiting for his opponent to choke. The Tsonga of 2008 AO is gone, we can probably mark that point (when he lost to Fakervic) as the moment when tennis became what it is today...awful.

Wilander was very scathing of Gasquet, accused him of 'giving up'.
