OK~~~He lost a big match~~~~so~~It's over.
Great post, Minnie
~~(I tried to give you positive feedback.. it wouldn't let me)
It's a tennis match, people, ~~albeit a very important one to Roger and to us, his
die hard fans~~~~~~~~~~~but life will go on ~~
It's not cancer. It's not war. It's not someone you know being abused or dying of hunger or disease. It's not the end of anything, really~~in fact it may be the beginning of something even better~~~~after all, the year's only half over.
Roger seems to be healthy and back to playing his usual game (almost)~~~
I hope he works on his net play..& a couple of other things.I think he will, but come what may~~
He's a caring,intelligent, lovely man~~~with an unbelieveable talent and a marvelous work ethic. He has a strong support system in his personal and professional life.
In the things that really count in life~~~he's a champion.(If he never wins another match)~~
I send only positive energy to him and to you, my fellow fans.
Negativity helps no one, IMO~~~~
I'm still riding the Federer Express~~~all the way to the end of the line~~~which, like you, I hope is a long way off.
Cheers to all,
(Yes, I cried and cried and was miserable for a day or so~~but then I realized that in the scheme of things~~~it really wasn't so important after all)
I am a bit older than most of you & have lived through really great times and really devastating times~~~& I found that being positive pulled me through to where I am now~~~which is a marvelous time in my life.
When I first starting teaching~~I taught literature and a unit on R. Kipling..I taught the poem *If*~~~It's something that I don't think most of us (any of us?) can live up to, but it's asking those who understand the words..to just try. I know a lot of people who carry a copy of that poem in their wallets.
So if I sound like a *cock-eyed* optimist to you~~well, so be it!
And that's my sermon for the day.
