Is Fed disliked or his Fans?

Roger doesn't bother me or other so called "Fed haters"

Some of his fans do.
Anytime he loses they have an excuse and they whine and cry.
If someone does good against Fed (Nadal) they insult the player (steroids)

I can never put myself in a group with the above people because they are the most childish and insecure tennis fans.

I enjoy the sport and no one can win every tournament.
Fed fan plz realize this.
If Nadal beat Fed does not mean Nadal is "evil" or on "steroids" or a "dirtballer" or that "clay sucks" and is "third world"
I can't cheer for a person who drives the above fanaticism which tries to undermine his competition.

The ATP deserves a better class of player, and I'm gonna give it to 'em - Djoker

RIP TENNIS JUNE 7, 2009


Do what must be done.
Do not hesitate.
Show no mercy.

Re: Is Fed disliked or his Fans?

so?

every fanbase has a range of fans. roger just seems to have more here than other players, so there seems to be more fans of his that you are not a fan of.

Re: Is Fed disliked or his Fans?

It's not all of the fans obviously but whenever I go into a match thread that involves Federer and he's not playing right at his highest level, I always have to read about how Federer wasn't playing at his best (or some other excuse) whereas I don't notice that happening in threads about other players. Whenever he's not playing his best (which he shouldn't be expected to all the time), they use it as an excuse for the other player's achievements. It occurs even in matches where he wins convincingly and is mentioned in detail.

Edit: I'll add also that I haven't really noticed many Fed haters and that the threads related to him on MTF don't make any difference to what I think of him. (I enjoy watching him to an extent but don't really cheer him on.)

Of course his fans aren't disliked. I'm the most popular guy on this board.

For example, when he lost the final in Shanghai: Instead of the media congratulating David on his win, they commented extensively on Roger's loss. They were so distracted by all the records being broken, replaced, whatever, that they neglected to check out the action happening on court. Even the commentators were caught up.

Yeah, I was pretty annoyed with that. I mean, it was a huge achievement being one of only four players to beat Federer during the year and every single article that I read that wasn't from Argentina hardly gave David any credit. Federer got fatigued about two and a half hours later but it was a very tightly fought contest in the first two sets which could have went either way but the match itself wasn't commented on much. The articles were almost written as if anyone could have beaten him that day. (Admittedly the last sentence is an exaggeration but I'm thinking of that article from The Guardian in particular)

The media treated David as an afterthought (if they thought about him at all) and just proceeded on with Roger, Roger, Roger. Don't get me wrong, I like Roger-a lot. But the spotlight should have been on the winner, and it wasn't.

I actually think the thread starter has a point. If I'm honest, it's mainly Federer's "fans" that make me dislike him.

Some of his fans make me wanna , but that's the case with almost every fan base on the forum, right?

I guess it´s just that sometimes you feel there are many (fed trolls)
And, on the other hand, there are great Fed fans that are usually nice to other fans and they are good posters, but they can´t handle the situation when he loses.
Of course, there are Fed fans that are totally and they understand that he´ll lose once in a while

I can name a few right off hand who bitched, whined, and trolled the board all day long when Roger lost the Shanghai final. It was a total disgrace to his real fans.
