Question The 2006 Clown Era

Seriously. Using the following MTF excuses, how could Roger Federer be considered the greatest player ever if everybody else is such a no-talent clown? Let's look at the list (comments compiled using MTFers own words):

2006 CLOWN ERA LIST
2nd - Nadal, R. - nothing but a junk dirtballer
3rd - Roddick, A. - one dimensional, is nothing without his serve
4th - Davydenko, N. - no weapons; King of Mediocrity
5th - Ljubicic, I. - only plays his best during Davis Cup
6th - Robredo, T. - hahaha!
7th - Nalbandian, D. - out of shape headcase
8th - Blake, J. - Mr Nice Guy can't bring the goods in the big tournaments; still hasn't won a five-setter
9th - Baghdatis, M. - no weapons to hurt anybody with, lacks killer instinct
10th - Ancic, M. - beat Federer a million years ago, so what
11th - Haas, T. - pretty boy is world's worst No. 2 ever

Clearly, there's no depth or talent here. It's like Roger's stuck on the short bus. So if everybody sucks, who is Roger supposed to be measuring his own greatness against?

Congrats to Andy Roddick, 2017 Hall of Fame!

You should use your braincells to some more useful purposes.

Both of them.

The Wit and Wisdom of the Tennis Journalist, Indian Wells 2004

ROGER FEDERER: Yeah, I remember this one time when I went on a vacation on the Maldives. That was in the year 2001, I think. I went to this spa. I went to walk around with my girlfriend. I walk in, and we want to book a spa. This guy goes, "AHH, I remember you. You beat Sampras. I saw you on TV." That was like, really, how can you remember me? This guy has probably never been off his island and still knows me. I was a little bit shocked. Then I went to play tennis with him because he was actually the tennis teacher. It was nice.

Q. Were you naked at the time in the spa?

ROGER FEDERER: No. It was at the front desk. I didn't walk in naked.

Why post this garbage. As Sjenster so aptly implied. If you want to go around telling others to confine their stupid threads about one player to player forums then do that yourself as well.

Champions deserve whatever they win playing within the laws of the game

And to think she put so much effort in culling supposedly Fedtard responses....tsk, tsk

You might as well have created a "Federer sucks because he is winning in this weak era" and received the same number of responses to this thread.

"Clownish" is the right way to describe this thread.

Need ideas for a new signature...

I agree with some of the definitions, but this is utter nonsense.

Inspired by Rafatards, Fed haters are now no longer going into hiding mode after their favorite's loss and Federer's title. Instead they are coming out in droves to degrade Federer, even without hesitation sacrificing their own favorite to one-dimentional-serving-machine status.

Re: How can Federer be considered "the best ever" is everybody else is such a clown?

Besides the fact that I'm also a clown, do I not make a good point?

I've been purusing the Federer threads for a while and basically the consensus amongst the fans is the same: everybody else sucks.

How will we ever know how great Roger is if everybody is such a hack?

This thread didn't require a whole lot of effort. Just my two braincells!

Isn't that what a lot of the Federer fans have been saying about Sampras' era?

Shall we note two other clowns who can not even stay in the top 10 now but somehow managed to humiliate your supposed GOAT in usopen finals?

No not really.

That's not at all the consensus. A fairly high percentage of Federer fans such as myself respect Rafa, Roddick and most of the guys on tour. This thread has been created with the use of gross selective reading.

Put simply, no. It is what maybe one or two of the hundreds of Federer fans on this board have been saying. More selective reading, quoting and typing.

Still recovering from the torching that Andy suffered at the hands of Roger ? Would this be your idea of venting your frustrations ? I mean, obviously this thread has nothing to do with any of the other 10 players of which you've for some unknown reason decided to mention in this post. There's something that I find a bit peculiar about this type of erratic behavior.

Anyway, everyone is entitled to have their own opinion, which in turn would mean that at times some toes are gonna get stepped on, I'm sorry if you just can't accept that and move on with your life.

You've reduced yourself to the lowest of lows, you've badrepped, you've cried as if you were a 10 year old and now your shenganigans continue. Remember your posts a few months ago in which you cried over the fact that you felt as though certain fans of Roger were living vicariously through his success ? Lady, stop your fucking constant mopping around.

Roger is not only the best ever of his era, but one of the best ever of all time, he deserves to dominate players like Roddick because he's a superior player, anything else would simply be uncivilized.

No, you dont. Neither are you funny. So I dont consider you a clown.

You just seem very frustated, I recommend you to take some time away from these forums and tennis and then come back.

On the other side I totaly understand you, we all had these kind of moments (I specialy used to have them in soccer when my favorite team lost, sometimes I totaly lost my reason and just wanted to mock with my rivals)
