Classless, of course and as usual, but no media will report on this, since Federer's fake image has to be maintained. Had Djokovic been the one who said it, however, he would have been crucified.

Being in his situation after a beatdown in the first two sets, there wouldn't be many on this world who would react differently.

He said "please", what more do you want?

After all, history only tastes bitter to those who expect it to be sugar coated

Re: Federer says 'Get out of my face, please' to a camerman

That's perfectly normal, changover are here to rest and to focus, not to be disturb by cameraman who can use in 2016 a great functionality called "zoom". And he added "please" so I'm fine with it.

But Chris Kuerten is also right, the video would have been more spread if it was an other player, or at least noticed by commentators.

Well, if you put it like that it's impossible to compare since no one will ever be in a similar spot. But it's a very rude thing to say to someone who is just trying to do his job, like Federer was trying to do as well.

It's like the cameraman saying to Federer ''Get out of my face, I'm trying to get a shot of Djokovic''

Re: Federer says 'Get out of my face, please' to a camerman

A lot of Djokovic/Nadal fans are going to say 'if our guy did that, he'd be crucified, this is clear bias', and if thats true then they'd be right. Showing human emotions when your losing is perfectly natural and it doesn't make you a bad person, it means you're not a robot.

I love all aspects of TENNIS.

Federer - The Artist
Murray - The Tactician
Nalbandian - The Ballstriker
Llodra - The S/V

It's perfectly fine in general, but Federer always seems to vent his anger on cameramen, ball boys, opponents, journalists and umpires, which crosses the line. If he just had an explicit Haas-esque monologue with himself I wouldn't mind.

Re: Federer says 'Get out of my face, please' to a camerman

Oh come on Andreas, Nadal has been in so many humiliating losses last year and yet not such incident took place. Roger's ego and image doesnot let him have it.

Nadal has everything tennis has to offer.
A loss in every round to career slam. Not many can say this.

And now to the wonderful addition of achievements- The Wooden Spoon.
Djokovic def. Murray def. Raonic def. Monfils def. Kuznetsov def. Sela def. Verdasco def. Nadal

Camerman was just doing his job. He wasnt rude or anything like that.

“Does Djokovic resemble myself?” Agassi said. “No, he is even better. He defends really well, while I struggled more in that element of the game. Novak looks totally relaxed when defending, completely calm and the quality of his return is incredible. He is also extremely flexible in his game, which is facilitated by his ability to anticipate his rival’s moves. That is why I think he is a much more versatile player than I was and he is also much more athletic.”

I'm still not that convinced that it's classless or anything, otherwise almost every tennis player would be classless too if losing a match. Already had to collect some awkward moments, you know one has to get used to it in that job like we've experienced. Not everyone is a Frank Dancevic.

However, you're right with that part about the media attention. Would it be the other way around, we've already had multiple threads a few minutes after the incident.

Not everything I write should be taken seriously.

It is not classless not to like close-ups taken from a meter or less.

I remember his finger strapping incident from the last season (don't remember exactly which GS) when he also asked cameraman who came next to him sitting on the bench "does it really have to be that close ?".

You can zoom-in on the face or finger from 2-3 meters also.

I dont mind him saying that as long as they dont portray him in the media like Maria Theresa. He is definately not what they want him to be.
