Angry Are you bored of Federer?

I am extremely bored with this crap. He is playing extremely well I admit it but his existence is not good for tennis fans except Federer fans of course because he is losing only on the clay court tournaments. Other than that he is winning every tournament he enters. For example I probably won't watch the semifinals and the final in this year's U.S OPEN because the winner will be him by beating "come on!!!" Hewitt 6-3/6-4/6-1 and grandfather Agassi 6-2/6-4/6-3 with some boring matches because he can beat them even one-handed I claim that he is more dominant than last year's Michael Schumacher on F1. Even Schumacher let some other winners last year. Also other ATP players except Nadal are responsible for this situation because they don't believe they can beat him. They may be wright because of the H2H record against him but they should believe I think. Only Nadal believes he can beat him that's why I'm a fan of him. (Even a consistent Safin believes beating him is near impossible) I hope he improves himself in the hardcourts and later in grass so we can see some good matches between them. But for other players (we can say except a consistent Safin) the situation is getting worse and I don't think it will be better. Among the players near his age don't have any chance of beating him. It will be the young players that is going to beat him when they become matured. What are your thoughts?

Re: Are you bored of Federer?

Of course tennis would be more exciting and interesting without him, but unfortunately we can't change it. I just try to do something else than watching tennis when Federer is playing.

Now that would be better, why should Fed lower his level so that the rest can win

Re: Are you bored of Federer?

It depends on if you like the player dominating. For instance, if this was Andy, I couldn't deal with it. Can you imagine having to see those Mojo ads all tennis season Well, I somehow survived the Pete years (yuck) but that's because women's tennis was better when he was dominating.

Re: Are you bored of Federer?

so its federer's fault he is playing far better than anyone else is capable? u guys would prefer a lower level of play just becoz there will be more 'champions'? what kinda logic is this? why dont u guys go watch any recreational league games?

Before you wave the smilie:
The poster did not imply that Federer should lower his level but she/he said "I wish they'd all play like Federer".
That's actually a compliment and not a slur.

Domination in any sort of sport tends to be boring for a lot of people except if that sports person happens to be your favorite.
Many people hated the Merckx domination, the Hinault domination, the Indurain domination, the Sampras domination, the Armstrong domination, the Schumacher domination and some people don't like the Federer domination.
Is that a reason to tell the original poster to "sod off"? I can understand that you have a problem with threads like this but can't you come up with something positive to say about Federer instead?

I'm a bit of a Schumi fan but I found last year boring as hell. Don't get me wrong, I like to see him winning but I prefered the years with Damon Hill or with Hakkinnen when they offered him a tough rivalry.

Re: Are you bored of Federer?

Yep I'm bored but I won't go on about it. Just for the record though, if one of my favourites was the one dominating yes I would get bored with that too. I just don't enjoy dominance.... but it doesn't last forever. Schumacher is pretty much nothing this year afterall.

Re: Are you bored of Federer?

all good things will eventually come to an end, federer won't dominate forever

even if you are not a fan, you have to admire his skill and ability on a tennis court - it's once in a generation stuff

Re: Are you bored of Federer?

i think it's good for the game in a way of seeing if he'll beat the record books (aka: sampras)
