Re: Sorry players' interviews. Death of Tennis Mourning Thread.

I believe these tennis pundits and fans rant forever.
fans LOVE to talk about federer's "inner holiness"

they do SO ONLY when it doesn't TOUCH upon the "inner motives" of his shows of "niceness".

what federer has been doing with players that HE KNOWS can THREATEN him -- is use that"charm offensive".

it is like a politician "visiting" his rival's turf just to give a sign that "i know what YOU'RE doing -- and just REMEMBER -- I'm the best"

in a charming way of course.

i won't be surprised if a lot of these "visits" somehow "touch" upon "shop talk" by way of "how are you" designed to filter out some perceived "thinking approach" to help figure out "how this guy ticks".

the federer speeches about Toni Nadal, the remarks coming from HIS camp abetted by Ivan his friend... the spotlighting of Nadal's "one dimensionality"...etc..etc.etc..

these are all part of a federer "feel my presence" game of psyching out potential threats and render them ever-so-slightly distracted about THOUGHTS of "kindess" ...."federer is my friend"...."he cares about me"...."he visited me".....

ways of DISARMING threats before a shot is made -- and by then .... it is too late.

clever is roger, ain't he? you watch -- IF gasquet EVER defeats roger and has a record like Nadal as Gasquet grows up and gets stronger and fitter --

you'll see reports touting Roger's "kindness" visits.......

he's really doing it as nothing more than SCOUTING MISSIONS HIMSELF -- this "student of tennis" roger......who admits to "studying my opponents" long before matches.

give him credit for studying HARD but there is NOTHING magical about it.
