Now THAT is SO cute! :angel:

Yeah, Rogi's good with moths too [from last year's AO!! he was serving and saw this moth flying on the ground and you could see him eyeing it -- a ball kid removed it and he resumed serving, with a little smile!] ;)

lol! Rogi!! He's so cute!! I wish I had seen that!!! Ooh, ILR, I'm jealous!

01-27-2003, 08:02 PM
533. He's useful for dethroning multiple Grand Slam champions at important moments, then losing the next round to one of your own favourite players (see right)

534. There is an extremely funny picture of Roger presumably pumping himself up, mouth agape and eyes pinched tightly, that actually makes him look like he's yawning: :D

01-27-2003, 08:08 PM

621. Roger became the best European Player voted by the ATP!!

01-11-2004, 05:09 PM
Dont know if this 1 is great.
622. Playing doubles with Navralitova!!

that lost still angers me how he could of lost!!

01-12-2004, 04:24 AM
Yeah I've seen far too much of that from Roger. I hope he changes in a big way. But he is not the only great with embarrassing losses.

01-12-2004, 04:27 AM
Yea, Smapras has had his, & im sure McEnroe has as well.

01-12-2004, 06:31 PM
Yep, McEnroe's worst was from 2 sets and a break up against Lendl in the 1984 Roland Garros final. He went on to win Wimbledon & the USOpen afterwards, and only lost 3 times that year. Pretty devastating loss, in perspective, beats anything Roger has done.

01-12-2004, 11:07 PM
Ahh, that must have been a terrible loss for McEnroe considering, he never won RG & that was one of his only 3 losses?? I hope Federer dosnt do that in a GS Final, or any GS Match for that matter!!

Mrs. B
02-04-2004, 06:45 AM

631. If you once jumped on the Roger-Federer-Train you won't leave it anymore (hope you understand what i mean... ;)
632. in the last ten days he reached No. 1, he won the AO trophy and is switzerlands Daviscup-Hero after winning against Romania...

02-10-2004, 06:50 AM
hey, welcome here ste!!! :wavey:

02-10-2004, 08:39 AM
Hee Clara, I so agree with that. Forst time I saw him I also noticed what a beautiful hands he has, so fitting with the artistic air he carries :D

02-10-2004, 05:30 PM
hey, welcome here ste!!! :wavey:

Hi Jazzy and of course hi to everyone else.. :wavey:

02-11-2004, 07:57 PM
Here's another good reason:

633. He beat up on that dirty Marat at AO! :devil:

Action Jackson
02-12-2004, 06:53 AM
634. He was good enough to win a Slam without having a coach.

02-12-2004, 03:38 PM
Hee Clara, I so agree with that. Forst time I saw him I also noticed what a beautiful hands he has, so fitting with the artistic air he carries :D

Actually I saw a sweet pic of Rogi when he was about 18 and the first thing I noticed about him [besides his bare chest... ;) ] were his beautiful hands... he has such lovely fingers... he is indeed an artist w those hands... :angel:

P.S. "dirty Marat" tangy?? I'm sorry Marat had to lose another OZ Open F but I'm ecstatic that Rogi won his 2nd slam.

02-12-2004, 08:49 PM

635. Rogi says the greatest things:

They were asking several players about the lady-killer of the ATP:

Roger Federer:

"I don't have to think about that question a lot. For me it's definitely Patrick Rafter! He is extremely sexy. I think there are not many women that wouldn't go on a date with him!"

:p :angel: ;)

One of my favourite Rogi quotes of all times!! I love it! :D

02-12-2004, 09:08 PM
I didn't know about that one, thanks RF for posting it! Hee I agree with Rogi, Rafter is :hearts: :lick:

Rogi, you're too cute :lol: :kiss:

02-13-2004, 01:22 AM
Raffy was the best. Had he the looks, the character, and the game. Shame he was not bigger than he was.

02-13-2004, 02:04 AM
Raffy was the best. Had he the looks, the character, and the game. Shame he was not bigger than he was.

He was indeed, Dirk... I regret never having seen Pat play live... but you never know!! ;) Maybe I CAN see him this year if all goes acc to plan... another great thing about Pat is that he thinks Rogi has the most complete game of anyone out there today... that mutual respect thing betw two of the best!! ;)

02-13-2004, 02:09 AM
They played 3 times. Roger had match point in their last meeting in Halle. Shame Roger didn't make the 01 W final. I think Pat would have been mighty nervous. So you might see Pat play this year? Watching Roger live was cool. Kafel man now that guy was really good up close live. With Roger I was high up but it was still beautiful. He was like a god. Sometimes he would hit the ball and there would be no sound. AMAZING!!!!!!!!!! I never saw that quote about Roger on Pat. I bet a lot of guys were jealous of Pat's looks and charisma. He is so nice that it was impossible to have a bad envy against him.

Action Jackson
02-13-2004, 05:18 AM
Rafter made a very good comment about Sampras. Rafter said "He is not someone I would have a beer with". Basically Rafter would have a beer with anyone, so there is someone he wasn't keen on.

02-13-2004, 05:57 AM
Yes because Pete made that arrogant insulting comment about Pat. A reporter asked him in 99 what is the difference between you and pat and pete said 10 slams. Now pete is right but it was an arrogant and rude thing to say. The reporter wanted to know game wise what is the difference. Pat and him had some words after that and never got along. Pat also took Pete's Ray Ban deal when he won the Open in 97 and became very very popular. I think that also added to the heat between them. Hey George who is that in your avaitor?

Action Jackson
02-13-2004, 07:07 AM
I was fully aware of the crap between Pete and Rafter. As for my avatar you have to guess.

The thing is though they both agree about the excellence of Rogi's game and his huge potential.

02-13-2004, 12:00 PM
A young Muster?

Amazing how many players/experts/fans are in awe about Federer's ability.

Much harder to gain that much respect when your not from a major tennis country as well.

02-13-2004, 03:46 PM
Muster said at Vienna after Roger won his semi. "I have just watched the best player in the world"

Pete said later on near his end that he went home after Wimbly and watched his loss to Roger for days and days trying to figure out as he put it. "what I did wrong" and "why did I lose"

Action Jackson
02-14-2004, 05:23 AM
Muster doesn't hand out respect easily, but he is a huge of Federer, and said he could do very well on the clay in the future.

02-14-2004, 07:43 AM
Hey George did you see that pic of Muster in Tennis life? HIs body is amazing now. He is all abs and looks like a god. :eek: Incredible, I hope comes back on tour.

Action Jackson
02-15-2004, 04:50 AM

645. Gave credit after a tough loss taking nothing away from his opponent.

Q. Your thoughts on the match? What was he able to do to get you out of rhythm?
ROGER FEDERER: Well, I think it's always difficult to play someone for the first time, first of all. But I think, you know, overall he played a very good match. He was the better player today.
It was tough for me to, you know -- I mean, I had time to get the rhythm, but, you know, he played very aggressive and I couldn't quite play maybe the way I wanted to.

Mrs. B
04-03-2004, 12:19 PM

Hey, c'mon, people, we haven't gotten up to 1001 yet, lol.


Q. Do you feel you are a superstar in tennis?

ROGER FEDERER: Well, in tennis, I feel like a superstar, yeah. But I don't know, in other sports, you have to look globally. I think tennis is very international. So, you know, you can call me a superstar worldwide, I'm fine with that (laughter).

Honestly, I like to be an idol for kids; it means a lot to me. Maybe other people or persons or players, whatever, they think, you know, all that's important to me is I'm having a good life, friends and family are happy. To me, it's important, too. But it's also important to represent the sport correctly and, you know, for kids to be an idol. Because I looked up to players, and when they didn't behave or whatever, you know, either I did the same -- I don't want the people, the kids to do bad stuff on the court or whatever.

So I'm enjoying this. I like to be a superstar, it's okay.

Roger...:kiss: I think I love you. I'm so happy when you win because I think you are a great person.
