Thumbs down Poor Fed, still can't get his due in the American media

If anyone subscribes to the NYTimes online, they usually post a picture of the winner on the front page. Maybe they did so earlier today, but there is no pix of Fed now. It is 9/11 after all, so they have a pix of a couple embracing in remembrance at Ground Zero.

Further down the page however, is the headline for the US Open: At 35, Agassi Gives All but Falls to Younger Star Right below the summary is a secondary link with the headline, Roberts: Here's Hoping Agassi Plays On

You go to the Sports Page and, who has 2 pix to 0? Agassi of course, waving to the crowd. You go to the Tennis page, and there's Roger!...shaking hands with Agassi whose facing prominantly in the photo, you see the back of Fed's head.

DickE said earlier today that maybe both Agassi and Fed will be on Letterman tomorrow.

Re: Poor Fed, still can't get his due in the American media

well, fed doesn't need to win the american press. US doesn't dominate tennis anymore anyway. so why push to win them over when the rest of the world is in awe with him?

Well, even Fed has said you know you've made it when you come to NYC and win the USO.

That's sad, because when Sharapova won last year at Wimby, she took up the whole front half of the newspaper, she was the hurricane of last summer.

Even Kim got a nice photo and wrap up.

Well if they refer to Federer solely as a Younger Star and don't even mention his name you know something is wrong with the NYTimes. Agassi playing at 35 is not bigger news than Federer winning back to back Wimby/USOpen two years in a row. That hasn't been done in the Open Era. I wonder if they ever mentioned it in 2004 when he won 3 majors?

Roger Forever !
