Ok, let's make one of those threads, but having Roger as the subject:

1 - You think Roger lost because you weren't watching the game.

10 - You don't mind losing your first ever real bet on tennis (cough, £10 on Rafa to win, cough) because it meant that Roger beat him on clay, in a final - woohoo!

Maybe I should try this at a Grand Slam next!

SUKTUEN

24. when you use your hand like your playing an invisible wii during play
25. when you squeeze the bjesus out of your hands when he's about to be broken
26. when you keep on coming in and out of the room to check the scoreline 'cause watching it becomes to intense
27. when your whole months mood is based on his defeat/victory
28. when you celebrate his apponents unforced errors
29. when you read every Federer story in Google news even though they're repeat by reutuers
30. when you re-read archive stories that praise Roger
31. when you scan youtube for any new videos/commercials
32. when you've saved the federer forum MTF as your bookmark
33. when you stay up late (US open) or wake up in the crack of dawn (OZ) to watch his round 1 match
34. when you're pissed that he lost an exhabition
35. when you can't be bothered to watch other matched 'cause no one plays like roger
36. when everyone you know stares at you everytime he appears on the TV screen
37. when you get pissed if a commentator slams Roger's game ...''oh yeah how many majors have u won a hole'
36. when you (I actually did this) tell your boss to stop talking when he’s playing
37. when you swear you’ll never get so emotionally attached to his matches to realise its worse
38. when you think he’s personally tormenting you by playing badly
39. when you watch highlights 7-10 times
40. when you respond to every criticism of Roger like you're his lawyer and he’s up for the death penalty
41. When you're AT WORK but contributing to a you know you’re a Federer fan post..

cool bird1
06-02-2009, 11:02 AM
39.You look down after a match a see that the lovely fingers nails you had done yesterday are now in ruin as you have bitten them all off.

40. If he is playing a tight match and some poor souls walks into the room wanting to talk to you and they leave with no head as you have bitten it off.

41. When you scream at Roger through the TV cus he has given away a sloppy service game and swear you will never watch any if his matches agin. Then the next second you are screaming like mad for him to break back.

42. You dread the day he decides to call it quits.

tennis2tennis
06-02-2009, 11:05 AM

37. when you get pissed if a commentator slams Roger's game ...''oh yeah how many majors have u won a hole'

:haha:


38. when you think he’s personally tormenting you by playing badly

:bigcry: I feel like that sometimes too, but I forgive him. :awww:


39. when you watch highlights 7-10 times

Same here. I've lost count how many times I've seen that FH of yesterday when he saved BP. :hearts:

And I'll add my own:

44. When you can feel the big butterflies inside you and feel nervous about his match which is more than 24hrs away.

I didn't read it yet but I loved it as well and starting reading from the beginning but I have to finish. The most things are the same for me but I'm going to add some




I love the white one :drool:

I've always loved Lindt, even when Roger was known only by his family/friends and some swiss who believed in him.
I love the red Lindor, The Cresta and the milch Excellence more.


#62: you wait for hours in the cold to say a few words to him
I would change it a little bit for me

#67 When you wait for him for hours only to see him practice one again and hoping to guess the court because in Italy you never know when and where is he practicing
#68 When you see him hitting, smiling and being funny and you don't know if to focus more on his tennis or on his charm and you melt getting totally confused.
#69 When you are there close to him playing his 1st round match and you want the time to stop forever, so you can enjoy all of him but you never want him to lose a game and when he wins a point you know the match is going to be fast but but you want the best for him, knowing after you're going out of the Paradise
#70 When you realize, after having seen him live, you miss him terribly and watching him on the PC o the TV is not enough for you.
#71 When he's winning easily and you watch at him, thinking, how can you be so amazing forgetting about the match.
#72 When he's winning and impatiently you wait to see him smiling and signing the camera
#73 When he wins an important match and for you it's enough to read all his happiness.
#74 When he's not playing well and you know he's going to lose but you hope he finds suddenly his best tennis to overturn the match.
#75 ...and when he doesn't and on the match point to defend he makes a mistake you turn off the TV before he riches the net because you can't see the sadness in his eyes
#76 ...or when I don't do it and you see it it hurts more than the stupid match
#77 When at RG 2013 you follow live the draw and they tell Djokovic goes with Nadal you make a shriek as if he won the slam yet

It was a very strange funny thing. I couldn't see the warmup before the 1st round match and had not the worst seets to him hitting but as it was becoming dark I wasn't able to see the details about his face but I noticed he hadn't his hair so I thought he put them into the bandana. It was strange for me that they didn't move out. So the match finished and the oncourt interview was mute (maybe some technical issues). After I called my mum who told me about it and I still couldn't realize how short they were and when after I saw the pictures online I couldn't believe but seeing him the day after changed anything. It's amazing to be there and appreciate him any look he has. It's still strange sometimes seeing him. He seems a new commer.

Let me add a similar one

91. Not being able to sleep after he won Wimbledon. I woke up during all the night and I was smiling and thinking "So it's the truth. He won it (for the 1st time live for me)"
92. And the opposite when I can't sleep after a tough loss and when I wake up during the night with the tears.

Yeah.
Last Year SF in Roland Garros against Dokovic. It was such a weird match. He should've won. He was in the first two sets in advantage but somehow lost the sets. I couldn't sleep and i was wondering what is better for him: If Djokovic wins RG or Nadal? I checked the ranking points and in the end i was sure, he regains the number 1 spot by winning Wimbledon again.
And he did! On my birthday :worship:

I 94. When you wake up in the middle of the night sensing Roger is playing, and you check the live scoring on your phone all the time even if you are supposed to sleep since the next day you are working. When you whisper "come on!" and fistpump silently when Roger breaks trying not to wake up your wife who's sleeping next to you. :)

I remember the 2012 USO quarters against berdych, I woke up and checked the score, Roger was about to lose the first set tiebreak. He loses the second set and goes down a break in the third, I thought "ok, it's over", but I just couldn't let Roger go. Roger breaks back and I quietly say "come on", Roger wins the third set and I fistpump under the blanket. Then Roger loses the fourth and I am so sad, it's 4 am and next day I had to work. All this happened while my wife was sleeping peacefully next to me. :)

I remember that terrible night. I woke up.
It was raining and lightening.
The satellite was off due to the rain and was coming and giung away.
When I woke up he was already 2 sets down and they were playing the middle of the 3rd so I decided to stay until Roger would win it and he did. Afrer I decided to stay until Roger breaks Berdych and he did it in the 1st game but there was the break of Berdych and at the end I stayed all the time between some image and the live score. On the mp the images were back. So he lost and I was telling why now?

I came back to sleep but I remember how sad I was and I couldn't fall asleep for a lon time.
The next day of course the head pain and the sadness were my companies :(

@Tony - sorry for the OT but I'm a fan of Dimitrov as well since the AO in 2011 - What period of the year was it for you?

In the beginning of the Year (January 2011), there was an article on eurosport. They interviewed Nadal. One question was which Youngsters will become a factor in the future. He did mentions Grigor, Harrison, Tomic and co. It was the first time i noticed his name. Then the Wimbledon Match against Tsonga was the next 'Aha-Effect' (Who is this Guy?). Since then i follow all of his results :)
