*~~*.Roger FEDERER in SLOW motion or Tiger WOODS best SHOTS-> which is more exciting?



Howdy folks

Just found some nice footage of Tiger Woods & Roger Federer at their best [in my opinion].. You`ve probably seen these clips from youtube before ..

Anyway my question is>> which is more exciting... Tiger pounding 350-metre drives onto the green over a lake or Federer with all his skills on display

Since my eyes are a bit slow I feel I need to watch Federer`s tennis in slow motion~> which i believe is the best way to appreciate his talent .. Whereas I prefer to watch Woods when he`s hitting a shot that no other pro golfer can

Here are the clips..

Tiger`s signature shots:

Federer`s full arsenal in slow mo:

*Alternatively you can listen to some music with Federer`s glory moments montage:

PS>>.. There`s another clip i want to post here because i think it`s pretty amusing: the Japanese it seems have only just discovered Roger Federer, since he won last month`s Tokyo Open!! For anybody who understands a bit of Japanese this will be interesting~ especially at the end when the two main presenters speak as if they`re hearing Federer`s name for the 1st time. Also they love to talk about age in Japan = seem to be amazed that he`s only 25yrs old! The clip is vaguely related to the thread since Federer talks briefly about Woods.. Also it`s just a nice little interview*@@*.

Personally, Golf seems too boring for me


So, 1000% Federer

~~ Okie dokies that`s fine & I`m sure most people around MTF will agree with you ... However I was wondering if seeing Tiger Woods at his best is boring for you ... Have you ever played golf

Watching a tennis player who has to move in order to hit a moving tennis ball that may have both spin as well as velocity is far more exciting than watching a guy standing still hitting a golf ball that is laying motionless on the ground or sitting a tee--no contest.

I think you can look at my signature and guess which I picked!

I think Tiger Woods is a fine athlete, but I am in no way into golf.
sorry.

Thanks for the videos, though.

I've never played golf before, so it's hard for me to appreciate Tiger's shots. But I know what it's like to play tennis, so it's much easier for me to see how incredible Federer really is from those slow motion shots. Such great balance, focus, and control.

Anyway, thanks for the videos. The slow motion one is great.

Apples and oranges.

I prefer tennis, obviously, that's why I post here.

But Tiger is extraordinary.

You`re welcome

My interest in tennis began as a spectator~>> living next to Kooyong in Melbourne & watching McEnroe, Wilander, Edberg, Lendl, Cash in the mid-1980s at the AO`s old grass court venue

Then I became obsessed by golf >> especially after meeting Greg Norman in 1991..

In 1997 I was fortunate enough to meet Tiger Woods at the Aus Masters pro-am... a few months latter he won the US Masters by 12-shots & now we can`t afford to see him play Down Under anymore..

Since I moved to Japan golf became too expensive ~>> so I turned my attention back to tennis ... Agassi`s refusal to lay down to age, Hewitt`s patriotic passion & Federer`s supreme command of the game finally made me appreciate that tennis is the overall better game! ... However when I become an old man I`ll probably revert back to golf since it`s less of a physical challenge to compete... However skills wise golf is no piece of cake~>> the way Tiger plays is unhumanlike, of course Federer isn`t from Earth either

I watched that slow mo video while Unchained Melody was on the radio. I cannot tell you how strange that was

Anyway, they are both great sportsmen. I'm not much of a golf watcher, however.

Enough said! And I'm a Tiger fan. No contest whatsoever.

What is all this fuss about JesusFed/Woods? What's next? 2007 Poker Champion is dating Sharapova? Go to non-tennis to lick golf, a game for rich fat guys

What a dumb thread.

Well, considering this is a TENNIS FORUM that consist of TENNIS FANS. I have a hunch that tells me the majority, if not all the people on this forum (must I repeat: a tennis forum that is) are going to enjoy watching tennis shots more than golf shots, but maybe that's just me.

To really compare Fed video should contain his incredible shots like against Roddick in Basel, Nalbandian in RG this year or against Henman in USO 06, plus some great rallies/defense, with a good music. The slomo vid is great but a lot of returns and random shots. Tiger shots are insane.

"I asked a bloke in the front row if he liked the serve-and-volley stuff," said Rafter. "He said he did but asked if he was going to get to see any rallies. 'Not today, mate,' I told him."
