Federer: Hero or Villain?

It seems like everyone on this forum is either black or white on the issue of Fed. Some people seem to hate his guts for constantly winning all the time. Others love him for his undeniable talent.

So is he the hero who will usher tennis into a golden age.
Or is he the villain who will destroy tennis by his dominance.

For people who don't like metaphors:

Is Roger good for the ATP's popularity or bad for it?

This is the Agassi/Sampras debate.

Re: Federer: Hero or Villain?

He's probably good for tennis from an international standpoint, and bad for tennis from an american standpoint.

I am not a fan of federer but I certainly don't hate him. Maybe if he wasn't such a nice, well rounded guy.....

So I am a subtle shade of gray i guess.

Re: Federer: Hero or Villain?

Roger's not a bad or good guy, he has no color or personality. So he can't be classified.

Re: Federer: Hero or Villain?

I meant hero and villain metophorically in terms of tennis' growth or diminishment.

Re: Federer: Hero or Villain?

Hero - No
Villain - No
Talented - Absolutely
Good for Tennis - Jury's Still Out - Fans should appreciate his talent and be astounded at how he is able to dominate ... but the general public only ever hear Federer, Federer, Federer ... enough already
Boring / Monotonous - Absolutely

Don't cry because it's over ...
be happy because it happened.
