OK, starting from you
, and then I decide if I follow suit
I did not say that I'm in control of his matches. It's easier to forget a loss if Fed did not control the match/did not have an opportunity to win.
It's definitely not easier. 05AO came to mind, and will be there forever.
OK, to make it more clear, if he loses because he doesn't play well or has some physical problem and his opponent has a better day, it's easier to for me take. If he plays ok and loses what he is supposed to win, I get pissed but can get over that quite quickly. If he plays well and loses because he gets outplayed, that's what I find most difficult to accept.
But all in all, as Roger is my outright and only fav, I hate it every time he loses no matter how and why he loses and find it hard to accept. And it will remain the same
Since he only lost around 5 matches each year for the past three years, basically I have had some very good life following him and a lot of enjoyment watching him play. There will be tougher life ahead of me and all of us but watching him play is still such an enjoyment and I love it so much, so anyways I'm happy I was a fan at the very beginning, though like you said I won't allow myself to repeat it after Roger retires
