Roger Federer - The lengths he goes to achieve success

This has gone far enough. I realise that Federer wants to become the greatest tennis player of all time, but what he's doing really isn't right. Let's look at the facts.....

In the last 12 months, it's pretty clear that Federer's main rival has been Nadal, and probably will be for the next few years. Then, what happens? He is struck down by a knee injury, misses the end of season championships and is set to miss the Australian Open. Now, if this had happened on its own, I could accept this as a normal injury. However, let us go on.....

Marat Safin beat Federer at the Australian Open last year, a defeat which brought great pain to Federer. Ever since then, Safin has been plagued by injuries, and has given Federer an easier passage during the last couple of slams. This surely raises suspicion.

Andre Agassi had the nerve to test Federer to the extreme in the US Open final. Ever since then, he has barely struck a ball in anger.

The likes of Hewitt and Roddick do not cause Federer much trouble, and he has therefore mainly left them alone apart from the odd occasion when he injured them, probably just for fun (that's the sort of guy he is). However, do not be surprised if you see Nalbandian being struck down by a mystery illness days before the Australian Open. I really do feel quite disgusted by this, and feel that the ATP should look into the actions of Federer. No matter how much he wants to win, he should not resort to injuring other players.

ROGER! STOP IT!

Watch Berdych break a leg in Sydney now that people have realised he's a genuine threat.

I am BUOH, warrior of heart and soul.

Quite possibly. Roger will probably plant some oil on the court

adee-gee is hallucinating - lay off the weed boy

Though I think Fed was seen conversing with a witch doctor in South Africa so...

Need ideas for a new signature...

'Mum', Roger won another match. He's a bad person, why won't he stop ? He should use Top Spin and run more, this is boring, no vamos, no injuries, tennis is dear awful. I bloody say.



Get over it.

Ok Adee You are one crazy dude! And let's quote- The games people play and boys will be boys. So can you post a pic of Roger's Voodoo Dolls of these players?
Besides I want to know how you get away with this stuff so often?
