Is Roger getting more emotional?

hey there,

it feels like over the last couple of months roger's gotten way more emotional out there, hasn't he? he's screaming more, fist-pumping, pumping himself up much more and his facial expressions seem like there actually is some sort of emotional core in there. he's not the rock anymore he used to be for the last 4-5 years and appears very "accessable" these days, like an actual human being. :eek:

i think it must have do to with the fact that he lost his "untouchable"-status and has been downed this year, if you will, which makes him fight a bit more than he needed to in the past.

i like to see him this way, what do you think?

Hate it :sad:
I take it as the clearest sign possible that he's struggling :crying2:.

Seriously?

He's an emotional guy. Much more entertaining to watch when he lets it be released on court, and of course these wins mean a lot to him now he's edging towards Sampras' record.

Tyrell: The facts of life. To make an alteration in the evolvement of an organic life-system is fatal. The coding sequence cannot be revised once it's been established.
Roy: Why not?
Tyrell: Because by the second day of incubation, any cells that have undergone reversion mutations give rise to revertant colonies like rats leaving the sinking ship. Then the ship sinks.
Roy: What about E.M.S. recombination?
Tyrell: We've already tried it. Ethyl Methane Sulfonate is an alkylating agent and a potent mutagen. It created a virus so lethal the subject was dead before he left the table.
Roy: Then a repressive protein that blocks the operating cells.
Tyrell: Wouldn't obstruct replication, but it does give rise to an error in replication, so that the newly formed DNA strand carries a mutation and you've got a virus again. But, uh, this - all of this is academic. You were made as well as we could make you.
Roy: But not to last.
Tyrell: The light that burns twice as bright burns half as long. And you have burned so very very brightly, Roy. Look at you. You're the prodigal son. You're quite a prize!
Roy: I've done questionable things.
Tyrell: Also extraordinary things. Revel in your time!

seriously? you prefer the non-living tennis-god? i don't know. he seems like a nice guy these days whereas there have been times where he seemed rather untouchable - on court as well as off court. i think by showing more emotions he'll have more fans than in the past. opening up will be a good thing for him in all sorts of ways.

you're probably right about the struggling though.

First the forgetfulness, and now he's overly emotional. Could it be menopause?

Seriously.
I understand they mean a lot to him now, but given the sucess he's had when acting like a robot it's hard for me to prefer him fistpumping all over the place (obviously we're not quite there yet)

Why is it surprising that I prefered him when he was untouchable on the court :lol: And I really can't give a crap aout him making more fans, he already has plenty enough :inlove: he even managed to win over the NY crowd too now :worship:

yeah but you're fedtard while i'm ok with roger but don't love him. ;)

and i believe it's great for tennis to see him let it out on court. it's eating him alive obviously during these harsh times, otherwise he'd keep up his non-emotional game, i guess.

That I can understand :lol:

As long as he doesn't start com'oning all over the place I'll be OK anyway.

He's always been an emotional man, but perhaps he's expressing it more. I attribute the reasons to the Olympic Gold in doubles, less pressure, and a refound passion in his game.

He's enjoying tennis much more now which is a great thing.

Fed's own response:


Q. You've been showing more emotion in this tournament than in years past here in New York. Can you kind of describe some of those cries you had out on court, what language they were in, and what you were feeling at that time?

ROGER FEDERER: No, I mean, look, I mean, I'm in good spirits at the moment because the Olympic gold definitely helped to sort of, you know, not be more happy on court, but maybe more outgoing, because I'm always like this, especially in the practice, you know.

So I guess for a while I put my head down in the matches and just tried to keep that unbelievable run I had going instead of trying to disturb myself with, you know, any sort of reactions really. Maybe it's a time where I can show a little bit more and it comes out.

So for me it's not a big change, because I practice more than I play matches. It's normal, really.

I actually love it that he's more expressive eversince the olympic. it's pretty entertaining actually :D. it makes him look more human also, warmer and more... I don't know the suitable word, more real, perhaps :).

The way he shouted "CHALLENGE!!!" and his "Come on!!" and when he shouted "GIVE ME ONE, PLEASE!!" in the last match... he's seriously all kind of love. And the crowds in USOpen adore him evenmore for that :)
