Dag, Betty!

Reread Claire's story because I figured that even VERY excited Fed fans can't be this daft. They took a van to see him and decorated it.


I think.


Edit: Right, Claire, I figured as much thinking a bit longer about it.

Minn,

The Czech republic has the presidency of the European Union for a little while (we take turns) and they asked some Czech artist to come up with something to cheer up their presidency, I suppose. This artist contacted 26 artists of the other nations of the EU to come up with a symbol, a stereotype, representing their nation.

Apparently, when the artist was chosen, quite a few citizens of the Czech republic were surprised because this artists is known for his "stunts".

It says a lot, I think, that here in the UK the main reaction has been unabashed hilarity at the artwork, and as for the fact that the UK, Eurosceptic in chief, is deliberately left out, the reaction has been "fair enough" ;)

he's got an opinion, much like many posters on mtf and those who follow the game keenly. and he's not saying anything that others cannot think out for themselves - it is hard to change racquets and surprising that one would do so before the first grand slam which doesn't have a lot of run-up events. it's not like said "zomg, novak's gonna crash out 1R. you heard it here first.

Okay here's the thing. If you're Roger Federer, anything you say is news. If he's happy to answer questions that stray into the areas of other players' setups, or aspirations, or expectations, then fine. It'll get reported and polarize people. His fans will get defensive that it's not like he said anything way out there, his detractors will paint him as arrogant and playing mind-games.

I think he'd be better batting away questions about other players and their things, but that's just my opinion. His fans can hardly complain if he keeps feeding the media with lines, even if fairly non-controversial, about other players. Of course people are going to jump all over it and take sides. That's what the media does, that's what fans do. He doesn't have to feed into that, but he chooses to do so.

Maybe you were over protective with him where he was little? I have this collegue, she has a 8 y.o and when he was a baby, she used to wash his clothes by hand, rincing them 100 times, boiling them twice and then ironing them front and back :cuckoo: The child developped some skin problems but as he grew up and started interact with children, proper food and normal clothes :rolleyes:, in time he got rid of them.....

NID"

He has an oppinion right, but he's not in the position to make it public. They are lockeroom collegues, rivals and not the best of friends. It doesn't sound right to give him advices about changing rackets even if he's right and I think he is.


WG, you never get this defensive around Rafa.

That because she is Fedal conscient that Rafa is a cautious boy who doesn't speak what he shouldn't :shrug:

But that would rob us of Roger's brilliant, diplomatic and insightful answers:p, and it would leave us with nothing but actual tennis to discuss on GM

Ok last time Hilde I promise :lol:

He didn't give him advice and even Nole said he'd been having trouble with the racket:
Q. Roger, Novak has put together a couple of good results now in Sydney but he says he's still struggling with his racquet as he goes in as defending champion. How much harder is it to defend a major title?


A. Yes. I mean it's tough because there's always a factor with the weather, how do you play, day form, you know, other contenders, the pressure, now a new racquet. I'm quite surprised he made a switch like this in the best phase of his career, you know. He can for sure play good tennis, but I think when it comes down to the crunch you just have that bit of a doubt maybe, you know, because you are not quite that comfortable with that racquet. But we'll see what happens.

I never denied that Roger's said some pretty :retard: stuff in interviews but the last two threads have been ridiculous.

We could do this all day.

Okay sorry for jumping in but what you seem to be doing is that you want to write his answers for him.( Maybe they could have speech writers for tennis stars) Fed is non-diplomatic. I think its adequately clear from his past interviews. I know some people when asked for an opinion, like to give it. The only person who can take issue with his statement legitimately is Djokovic. If he complains, then Fed may find it necessary to explain/curb himself. If not:shrug:

I don't know which way around I prefer it, to be honest. I think Fed is more likely to make the semi than Rafa, so if Andy lands there, then he more likely has to go through Roger just to reach the final. If he lands in Rafa's half I think he gets a tougher semi-final but there's also more chance Rafa won't get that far so he could end up with an easier one unexpectedly.

That's assuming Andy reaches the second week. I'm getting nervous :)

My problem is that I can't see Muzza taking Fed out in the final. If he's going to do it, he has to do it in the semis. It's hard to say about Rafa and his chances for making the semis. He's SO tough in best of 5 matches. I still think he has a good shot to get to the semis, personally.

I can see Andy take down Federer more in the final than I could see him take down Rafa. Andy said this week that he just doesn't fear playing Roger anymore and I believe him - I doubt any final rematch in Melbourne would look anything like New York.

Meh - let's face it, it's likely to be very hard for whoever ends up in the final four. And this being Australia, a few surprises must be factored in.

Okay here's the thing. If you're Roger Federer, anything you say is news. If he's happy to answer questions that stray into the areas of other players' setups, or aspirations, or expectations, then fine. It'll get reported and polarize people. His fans will get defensive that it's not like he said anything way out there, his detractors will paint him as arrogant and playing mind-games.

I think he'd be better batting away questions about other players and their things, but that's just my opinion. His fans can hardly complain if he keeps feeding the media with lines, even if fairly non-controversial, about other players. Of course people are going to jump all over it and take sides. That's what the media does, that's what fans do. He doesn't have to feed into that, but he chooses to do so.
Not that I like defending him, but can I just say.....tennis is pretty irrelevant in most people's lives. Let's put it this way. Not once has Federer been in a newspaper here because of something he's said. Yes a few hundred people on MTF might make a big thing of it, but in the grand scheme of things hardly anyone gives a shit. Not just in this country, but most. Roger could come out tomorrow and say he thinks he's the son of god and he'll never lose a tennis match again and most people wouldn't care.
Please let Muzza be on Fed's side of the draw

hilde, i don't defend rafa as much because a) we're in the rafa forum, so besides jm's "he dopes, he dopes, i go crazy" the only real hater talk comes in during his matches when everyone's all hopped up anyways. i use my smileys well at those points :D b) rafa's pressers aren't pored over like they're the holy grail. it irritates the shi* out of me when people do this for roger every single time. not as bad as the posters who wish we were all singing khumbaya because they're themselves amazing people, but close :mad:

Yes Metis :woohoo: How was it?

It was good :yeah: but not impressive. Not too many arias actually. For every aria there was an orchestral piece from an opera. 7 arias in total and 4 encores (the Greek public won't let you get away easily :D).

I wasn't very happy with the orchestra (National Orchestra of Athens) but that was to be expected after being used to the Boston Symphony Orchestra. :sad: The conductor was funny, a young, slim and very tall guy, extremely energetic (sometimes it looked as if he was trying to dance ballet other times as if he was happily skipping around on the podium :lol: )

Kaufmann was good but nothing extraordinary. I liked his voice and I was expecting a bit more after he sang the first aria. He sang Recondita armonia really well and I thought he would warm up and get even better, but he stayed at the same level.

The encores were: Il lamento di Federico from Cilea's Arlesiana (my favorite tonight as far as performance is concerned), 'Non ti scordar di me', 'La donna e mobile' and 'Dein ist mein ganzes herz'.

I am attaching the program. Most of it is in Greek but you have taken classes so you'll be able to figure it out I guess. :cool:

It's still undecided, he said that kind of injury already happened to him, sometimes it takes him a few days to get better, others a few weeks.

:confused:

Murray probably has Melzer who took him to 5 at the US and is dangerous when his head is in the right place. Then probably Verdasco who is another I wouldn't want him to play, also capable of troubling him. If Tsonga reaches the QF, I'd imagine he's fit. Then Rafa. I expect him to beat any player in the world right now but I'd much rather a draw where I'd hope he can win most matches in straight sets. Very tricky.

Murray probably has Melzer who took him to 5 at the US and is dangerous when his head is in the right place. Then probably Verdasco who is another I wouldn't want him to play, also capable of troubling him. If Tsonga reaches the QF, I'd imagine he's fit. Then Rafa. I expect him to beat any player in the world right now but I'd much rather a draw where I'd hope he can win most matches in straight sets. Very tricky.
It's one of those draws for Murray that could be tricky on a certain day and a cakewalk on others. Who knows how Melzer, Nishikori, Verdasco, Tsonga will play? Could be a nightmare. Could be a doddle. Just don't know.
