What's with that fraud thing?

I've been here only for a few months, amd I've come across that expressions or some variant. Frauderer.

And, well, me

What is that all about? How can such a dominant player be considered a fraud?

Hater Talk...

I guess it stems from a certain division of GM posters who claim that Roger's diplomatic, graceful behaviour is fake, a fraud. The funny thing is that those are usually the same bunch claiming he's arrogant and an 'ego king' when he just states the truth. Now how's that for double standards?

Humm. Ok.

So basically, it is just trying to throw some shit at the guy even if, based on his character and achievements, it cannot stick...

Thanks.

Re: What's with that fraud thing?

People make unkind words link into the players name. It's kind of like doubles names too. e.g

Frauderer
Federror
Nadull
Djerkovic
Almugro

.Roger Federer.

I think it's more due to the mono thing. Many people didn't buy it back then.

Interesting question. LOL

Look in my opinion Roger is a master of self PR as well as tennis PR, but that's it......He's real

Oh, I though it was one poster in particular who is obsessed with this 'nickname'. You know....the guy who will never be a Fed fan again because Roger allowed Nadal to win Wimbledon.

Yes I know who you're talking about. This person seems to also bear the Brasilian flag. How's it going dear Jen?
