I can see Andy take down Federer more in the final than I could see him take down Rafa. Andy said this week that he just doesn't fear playing Roger anymore and I believe him - I doubt any final rematch in Melbourne would look anything like New York.

Meh - let's face it, it's likely to be very hard for whoever ends up in the final four. And this being Australia, a few surprises must be factored in.

Re: The Pre-AO Anxiety Chat Thread

I find people invoking God over sport really irritating - it's one reason I don't spend much time in the Fed forum.

thanks, could be useful for TT. There's not much chance of me backing him against anyone in the Aussie Open draw though

His fans will get defensive that it's not like he said anything way out there, his detractors will paint him as arrogant and playing mind-games.

I think he'd be better batting away questions about other players and their things, but that's just my opinion. His fans can hardly complain if he keeps feeding the media with lines, even if fairly non-controversial, about other players. Of course people are going to jump all over it and take sides. That's what the media does, that's what fans do. He doesn't have to feed into that, but he chooses to do so.
Not that I like defending him, but can I just say.....tennis is pretty irrelevant in most people's lives. Let's put it this way. Not once has Federer been in a newspaper here because of something he's said. Yes a few hundred people on MTF might make a big thing of it, but in the grand scheme of things hardly anyone gives a shit. Not just in this country, but most. Roger could come out tomorrow and say he thinks he's the son of god and he'll never lose a tennis match again and most people wouldn't care.

Re: The Pre-AO Anxiety Chat Thread

what is god for if not helping your favorite team/player win? i mean, once in a blue moon he guides a jumbo jet safely into the hudson, but most of the time he's dealing with grand slam draws and wildcard playoffs.

Totally agree on this - her arrogance is fine. If Roger had a huge squidgy butt that barely cleared the sidewalk, Adam would love him too.

In fact I'm seeing a pattern here. Male, female, if it has a big butt Adam likes it
