Angry Oh no!!!Another disgusting Federer-Hewitt or Roddick final:(((

God damn it!!!I really want Federer to lose this Ginepri match in order to have an interesting TMS Cincy final but unfortunately somehow he wins again. Luck is always at Federer's side when he is playing bad. For the organizers I have an offer. Please cancel the final, make the ceremony and give the Cup to Federer))

Re: Oh no!!!Another disgusting Federer-Hewitt or Roddick final:(((

We'll see.

If Federer were to either a) play brilliantly tomorrow or b) play another terrible match but somehow get through, I wonder how the crowds would react to his achievement. They might recognise it as a triumph of mental strength, but they certainly wouldn't be applauding him for his tennis this week.

ROGER FEDERER: Yeah, I remember this one time when I went on a vacation on the Maldives. That was in the year 2001, I think. I went to this spa. I went to walk around with my girlfriend. I walk in, and we want to book a spa. This guy goes, "AHH, I remember you. You beat Sampras. I saw you on TV." That was like, really, how can you remember me? This guy has probably never been off his island and still knows me. I was a little bit shocked. Then I went to play tennis with him because he was actually the tennis teacher. It was nice.

Q. Were you naked at the time in the spa?

ROGER FEDERER: No. It was at the front desk. I didn't walk in naked.

i dont think he or anyone else should care how the crowd reacts. he doesn't have to prove he can play good tennis. he is well and truly past that point. so if he wins the tournament people should just realise it means that he can win top level tournaments when playing at his worst and respect him for that. and maybe laugh at hewitt or roddick for losing to him again.

if he wins the tournament that is....

Re: Oh no!!!Another disgusting Federer-Hewitt or Roddick final:(((

I seriously doubt that's the kind of thought process running through their minds. Both of them must be itching to get another chance at him, especially Roddick. If he gets through, it'll be only his second ever match with Federer on American soil.

Funny how nobody complains Rafa winning all these tournies, and he has played the most tournies than any player out there

I'd take the latter, give him the cup already because his tennis has been

I'm not suggesting he should care, but the atmosphere in his matches has been as flat as a pancake. Granted, Federer is not someone who brings people to their feet most of the time anyway and I have no problem with that, but the lethargy of his play has been reflected in the crowds. After all, this is one event where people have not seen Federer's best in recent years; this is the first time he's actually gone deep into the draw, and some of the crowd must be wondering what on earth all the fuss is about him.

Just a thought, this doesn't make me a Fed HATA and I still hope he can win tomorrow, of course. But it isn't every week that you can get to the final of a TMS event without having to play a single Top 30 player.

True, true. The sparse turnout is definitely a cause for concern, in fact it may be what's causing the poor level of play, rather than vice versa. Not necessarily in Federer's case, I think that's just poor form, but some of the other day matches have been a little tedious too.

I looked it up and realised, before anyone complains, that Rochus is in the Top 30. At number 29. But still, of all the Top 30 players you could draw...
