You don't walk off the court before meeting your opponent and shaking hands at the net.

What a dick.

That wasn't that bad, though I do see a bit of the point in not meeting your opponent at the net between them.

One could see Roger was extremely disappointed with losing, especially when he held two match points.

But I agree that he shouldn't have just walked off, well he still did shake hands with Nole and the umpire, so it's not too big a deal.

Federer is arrogant and a VERY sore loser! Have you seen his interviews? He always has something to blame if he loses. He just can't admit that Nole was simply better and he was outplayed in those two sets.

Come on. Novak stood frozen on the spot in disbelief of his win for what seemed to be an age. What is Roger supposed to do? He shook hands at the net... always the same, everyone dissecting every last nuance of the game and its aftermath and as always, Roger is found lacking.

:rolleyes:

He acknowledged how good Nole was in his presser several times and said anyone who underestimated him clearly knew nothing about tennis.

You people are just reaching for excuses to hate Federer. It's gone past pathetic now.

Totally agree. Bizarre how some people trot out the same old rubbish time and time again, ignoring post-match press conferences. Heaven forbid if Roger does say something out of line( mentioning his back at Wimbledon), he was complimentary of Novak and still they harp on about his arrogance and lack of credit for his opponent.

What else was Roger supposed to do--just stand there?

I thought they all walked off the the court after finishing a match.

As far as Nole's reaction, I don't think he was being dramatic at all. I would imagine he's pretty shocked he won. I was shocked he won, so I can only imagine how he felt. Most everybody was gearing up for a Fed v Nadal final, so the fact Nole was a contender was a little lost on everyone--as Fed said in his presser.

I'm really surprised Nole held it together to win. It really was a great match from both except Roger seem to sort of check-out mentally in a couple of sets.

Really? This is a guy who rolls around on the ground and makes his opponents wait. And they wait. It's what you do. You wait. You don't walk off. The guy's the multi-sportsmanship award winner, but he loses and bolts to his chair. It had nothing to do with Novak's very abbreviated, statuesque, subdued celebration.

Just sayin' he's an arrogant prick, like many of us have told his fans for some time. Had nothing to do with his play. Unfortunately, most of his mystique is built around his image. Well, he proves he's a prick once again.

One guy is on the ground. Federer congratulated Novak and shook hands. What else do you want? Tell you what. I never even thought about this. That means if you had time to analyze the video an think about it that much, you have got no life my friends.

Roger's opponents wait for him all the time, even after he rolls around on the ground. They never walk off. This is not the way you comport yourself after a loss. You show some class, especially when your mystique is predicated on being classy.

Novak's very abbreviated celebration had nothing to do with it. Roger didn't even notice. He bolted off the court.

It's not like he bolted off the court and head toward the locker room. I mean.. goodness gracious give the guy a break. He shook hands with Nole. He gave Nole a lot of respect and credit in his presser. What more could any fan want?

To me, it's making a mountain out of a molehill pointing out Roger didn't wait for Nole at the net. It's not like Roger just stormed off the court without congratulating him.

No... Roger isn't the best loser, but at the same time.. Roger doesn't have a lot of experience at losing. There are some players who aren't the best losers either even though they should know how to lose and win more graciously.

What makes this thread worse is that, while the majority have been saying it wasn't a big deal, a good portion took the time to spew venom at people who weren't even bashing at Federer. Only 2-3 people here legitamitely looked for bad things from Roger.

I just laughed at how quickly the guy wanted to bolt. Nole's reaction to the win was longer, lol

It's not a mountain. It's not Serena threatening violence upon a lineswoman or Andy berating a lineswoman. And it really doesn't matter what his apologists say. It's simply poor sportsmanship. And that's something of a hill in Roger's life.

Take nothing from Nole celebrating a well-deserved victory. But also take nothing from Federer simply going near the ump. Fed just wanted out quickly after a tough loss.

Roger runs straight to the net after he wins a big match? No one knows how long Roger's going to roll on the ground, but they wait for him. I guess what folks are saying is it's cool because Roger thought Nole was going to be celebrating for 45 seconds or a minute. Nole's celebration wasn't long and it was certainly subdued. Maybe it seemed long because he didn't move. Maybe that made viewers uncomfortable because it was unorthodox.

Uh.. I'm not what'd a person would call a "Roger apologist." As I said, I don't think Roger is the "best" sport all of the time, but neither are the MAJORITY of tennis players--particularly when they're losing.

I just don't think it's a big deal, but if you want to get your knickers in a twist about it, you go on ahead.

And what the hell does Serena have to do with anything?

I was speaking of Fed apologists. You're not one, so it doesn't apply to you.

I was just juxtaposing the two: Serena = mountain, and agreeing that it isn't a mountain.

Well... Serena.. that was nasty.

But Roger.. I just don't think him not waiting at the the net for Nole was like a snub to Nole. I think Roger was just disappointed. He even said in his presser about people expecting a Federer v Nadal final, and he was disappointed he couldn't make that happen. But he also said, a lot of people underestimated Nole, too.. So..I just don't think Roger met it as a slap in the face to Nole, but more was just disappointed.

Here is the actual full length match point, Nole victory celebration, Fed handshake and Nole celebration AFTER the handshake. Nole's celebration may have been the shortest one I've ever witnessed in a big match. He stood and looked stunned for a couple of seconds. Fed, probably guessing he would take longer, went over to the chair for a second, but came back to shake his hand in a timely manner when he saw Nole was not going to roll on the court nor do anything elaborate. Fed and Nole also shook the hand of the Umpire after shaking each other's hand.

Afterwards Nole did a more emotional celebration. I don't see any controversy from either player in this clip.

How trite of Jon "Hater" Wertheim to attack The Federer.

"Meanwhile, the viewer is deprived of a shot of the players walking to net and shaking hands, which is often terrifically revealing. After the Novak Djokovic-Roger Federer match, Federer packed up his bag, declining to wait at the net as Djokovic celebrated. But we didn't see that; we saw pops Djokovic looking predictably pumped. My suggestion: What if we ran a split screen or a box within a box?"
