Fans are equal. You said there are Fed's fans that can put anybody off while it's also true for me at least that there are Nadal's fans that can do the same treat and maybe even worse. It's the truth that Federer is still quite safe with his No.1 position. And you don't even know how some Nadal's fans will react and what they will flood the forum with to put you off when Nadal actually climbs to the No.1 ranking. You never know people's espeically fans' potential. He can play on hard court, I'm not denying that. You also don't have to remind us of their bad match-up. Again we should know better than you.
And can you pick up specific fans here posting regularly in Federer's forum who often talks shit around? If you fail to find more than three, then you'd better shut up here in the Federer forum. Save your words for those whoever deserve them. If you want to teach a lesson about how we Federer fans should behave, it's the wrong place.
Sorry for the unpleasant words here. I'm just saying, admit it or not, most Fed fans are pretty good fans, thinking of Roger's achievements already.
Hi, yanchr. I don't know where to start.
First, I've been Fed's fan since September 1999 when I saw him beating Pioline in Tashkent. Long enough, I think. So I have no idea what you or anybody else here know better than me. Also I've been playing tennis myself since 10 yo, and I dare to think that I understand the game of tennis a little bit.
. Probably you mistakenly took me as a Nadal's fan. I have a lot of respect for his results, but very little little appreciation for his pigbull style.
Second, I didn't intend to offend anyone. In real life I always say things like I see them, why should I be different here? I don't keep track of who is posting where. I decided that if I want to say smth to Fed's fans, I'd better do it here, than at the MTF. I didn't want to point a finger at anyone, I'm sure they know their names.
Third, I know that Fed's fanbase is a group of nice people with a few rotten apples who are unfortunately very loud and stupid at the MTF. It's true that some Nadal's, Roddick's fans are no better, if not worse. But if your neighbor comes home drunk every night and beats up his wife, it doesn't mean you should follow his example. As a dominant No1, Federer is naturally hated the most; a lot of people would love to see his fall. So in my opinion, it wouldn't hurt if Fed's fans behaved smart and left comments like " Federer is the king" for this forum. At least for now.
Why for now? Because there's some uncertainty with his nagging injury. Because for the first time there is a real danger for his No 1 ranking. Because he's 24 yo. lol. I beleive that 24-25 is a bit of a crossroad for a tennis player like Roger. The body of a professonal player at this age is a little worn out already and doesn't recuperate as fast as at 18-19. He has to set his priorities. It might mean that he'll be concentrating on Slams only. It might mean that he''ll have to give up on no1 ranking. Only time will tell.
Ok, I'm done with explanations. The draw in Cinci looks OK to me. The most important thing is to stay healthy.
