Why I like Fed so much

Ok i know this is another post about Roger as was my first one but i am not gay i promise :) Before Roger came along Agassi used to be my favorite player, but there was a problem with him. He was basically owned by Sampras. Even though it was such a great rivalry it seemed that whenever it really mattered Pete could step it up one gear and beat Andre. This was well demonstrated in the Wimby finals of '99 when Pete smoked Andre just after he won the French. This also stopped him form winning four grand slams in a row of course, all be it not in the same calender year. So even though i loved Andre's personality it was very frustrating watching him getting beaten time after time in the US Open, three of those defeats came in the final and one was the classic match in the quarters where Pete won 6-7, 7-6, 7-6, 7-6. Whenever Pete was in trouble he would serve an ace, even if it was on his second serve. Pretty boring stuff actually.

Enter Roger Federer. He would only meet Sampras once, but that would be enough to get his point across. Pete couldnt bully Roger with his big serve and volley game since Roger had a big serve and volley game himself, but not only that he had an unheard of quality in his game. In that R16 match at Wimbledon Federer showed that he wont be dominated by a big game, he had all the answers and more. This was enough for me to fall in love with Federer's game. After all that frustration of watching Pete dominate Andre i would finally have my revenge, and it couldnt be sweeter. Pete knew that day he was beaten by a better player. In the interview after the match he was in unknown territory, for the first time in his dominating career he was beaten by someone who had all the answers. How could this be??? I always had the edge on my opponents not the other way around!!!

I was going to put the post match interview with Pete here but i couldnt find it, so i found something better. Just imagine Roger as the King and Pete as the black guy.

What I like are his spaghetti arms, incipient gut, and his effete manner. I like the way he tweaks his hair like a teenage girl in between points. It's important I think for a player to be immaculately groomed just in case he has to rush of to a posh social gathering mid-game.

I love his awe shucks innocent yokel from the Swiss Alps routine too. It's adorable - even when it falls off script and lets his inner darkness seep through.

What I like about tennis are the brutal warriors, those intense souls that simply cannot hide their passion as they scream, sweat, and grunt like damn near every other big, professional, Western culture sport. Such examples of raw talent chase down everything, not with superior movement or balance, but instead while simply sprinting, even while bent over, to arm shots back thanks to the aid of modern technology's "advancement" of the racket. Said technology will, in several years time, hopefully lead to the possibility of passing shots that are hit from outside of the stadium while on one's ass with a handful of ribs... aka by those in full body paint "tailgating" the eventual matchup between buff grinder #1 and buff grinder #2 on yet another slow hardcourt. Then tennis will become like every other sport, complete with Michael Phelps-esque tards screaming during points and talking about how "sick" a particular 80 stroke rally was. Maybe they'll even invent halftimes so they can wheel out one of those machines that shoots hot dogs into the stands.

Until then, we'll just have to deal with the sloppy variety we've been dealt, which includes fat, thin-armed, nerdy looking dweebs with corny laughs, girly hair, too much money, fat girlfriends, whiny spoiled excuses, and no visible sign of gym-physique athleticism to speak of. Never mind how these kinds of athletes, and I use the term loosely, play tennis; it doesn't look "good" and it isn't "cool." Real tennis, please evolve quickly and take over for good! Federer and the like, please quit!

I love Roger's nose. It's so unique and must have its own post code. :haha::haha:

I also like his unequaled graciousness in defeat.

I lover Roger for his peak period(late 2003 to early 2007) when he played the most flawless, dominating tennis ever to be seen. Roger from March 2007-present is not Roger.
