Boris Becker once said re: loosing (and I'm paraphrasing): it's only a tennis match. Nobody died. I remind myself that whenever Roger looses a match.
Exactly it's only tennis these athletes are playing out there at the end of the day. As a fan and a great admirer of Federer's game it is disappointing to see him lose, however one can't do much about that outcome. For the most part Federer usually wins when he is playing well, not so so much these days. Nonetheless, just enjoy the tennis and if you really are a tennis fan, there's more to tennis than just Federer. Nevertheless, Federer makes tennis all the much richer and enjoyable.

Do not accuse a man for no reason—

So long Marat Safin, C'mon Lleyton Hewitt,Viel gluck Tommy Haas, Bring it on Marcos Baghdatis, Gut Spielen Nicolas Kiefer, Dale Fernando Gonzalez, Dale David Nalbandian, Davai Nikolay Davydenko and Allez Jo-Wilfried Tsonga

Because this bears repeating. As a Fed fan, I am never disappointed IN him. He's given everything and more that one can expect to this game. I'm disappointed
FOR him because I know how badly he wants it.

Just watching him play is enough to me.
