After his disastrous loss to an unknown lucky loser, many tennis experts start to wonder if it is the beginning of the end for Fed.

Yes, my friends, the bubble of success has been popped by the needle that is Guillermo Canas. The resulting splash will affect the tour in proportions unbelievably huge, as the feigned splendor of the false king has been smashed away! Xristos, the throne is yours.

Beautiful friend
This is the end
My only friend, the end

Of our elaborate plans, the end
Of everything that stands, the end
No safety or surprise, the end
I'll never look into your eyes...again

Can you picture what will be
So limitless and free
Desperately in need...of some...stranger's hand
In a...desperate land

That's great, it starts with an earthquake, birds and snakes, an aeroplane and Lenny Bruce is not afraid.
Eye of a hurricane, listen to yourself churn - world serves its own needs, dummy serve your own needs.
Feed it off an aux speak, grunt, no, strength, Ladder start to clatter with fear fight down height.
Wire in a fire, representing seven games, a government for hire and a combat site.
Left of west and coming in a hurry with the furies breathing down your neck.

Team by team reporters baffled, trumped, tethered cropped.
Look at that low playing! Fine, then.
Uh oh, overflow, population, common food, but it'll do.
Save yourself, serve yourself.
World serves its own needs, listen to your heart bleed dummy with the rapture and the revered and the right, right.

It's the end of the world as we know it.

It's the end of the world as we know it and I feel fine.

Six o'clock - TV hour. Don't get caught in foreign towers.
Slash and burn, return, listen to yourself churn.
Locking in, uniforming, book burning, blood letting.
Every motive escalate. Automotive incinerate.
Light a candle, light a votive. Step down, step down.
Watch your heel crush, crushed, uh-oh, this means no fear cavalier.
Renegade steer clear!
A tournament, tournament, a tournament of lies.
Offer me solutions, offer me alternatives and I decline.

It's the end of the world as we know it and I feel fine.

The other night I dreamt of knives, continental drift divide.
Mountains sit in a line, Leonard Bernstein. Leonid Brezhnev, Lenny Bruce and Lester Bangs.
Birthday party, cheesecake, jelly bean, boom!
You symbiotic, patriotic, slam book neck, right? Right.

It's the end of the world as we know it.
It's the end of the world as we know it. can't I have some time alone?
It's the end of the world as we know it can't I have some time alone? and I feel fine...fine...

What experts? Wait a minute... are you an expert?

No, Federer won't just all of a sudden stop winning. That being said, he MIGHT have a lull (people will start believing that if Canas can beat Federer, then surely they can) but he would regain his form.

Federer probably had that toe problem anyway, and he just didn't show how much it was REALLY bothering him. But then again, who knows until the interview comes out? And even then...

Great for Canas to win i actually was a fan of his before he got banned.
But the end of federer?...obvious you are either a hater or just someone who hasn't a clue about tennis. He's won 41 straight he loses one match and your so call experts are saying this is the end....i think wishful thinking from your part loser.

Turning and turning in the widening gyre
The falcon cannot hear the falconer;
Things fall apart; the centre cannot hold;
Mere anarchy is loosed upon the world,
The blood-dimmed tide is loosed, and everywhere
The ceremony of innocence is drowned;
The best lack all conviction, while the worst
Are full of passionate intensity.
Surely some revelation is at hand;
Surely the Second Coming is at hand. :eek:

And the sixth angel poured out his vial upon the great Euphrates; and the water thereof was dried up, that the ways of the kings of the east might be prepared. And I saw three unclean spirits like frogs come out of the mouth of the dragon, and out of the mouth of the beast, and out of the mouth of the false prophet....And he gathered them together into a place called in the Hebrew tongue Ar-ma-ged-don. And the seventh angel poured out his vial into the air; and there came a great voice out of the temple of heaven, from the throne saying, It is done.

I'd wish this is the end but is not.

There're only two kind of people who can beat federer; a teenager unconscious mind with an uncredible talent (djokovic, gasquet, berdych, etc..), or a superpowerful mind who doesn't know the meaning of giving up after a one-year-n-half rest by injury and a one-year-n-half rest by doping. This is canas, and nobody else.

I really think federer makes the difference with THE MENTAL THING. Or do you think he is way much talented than safin, djokovic, berdych or even malisse ?????? of course not.

rubsch
03-12-2007, 03:39 PM
Yes...
I actually think he is more talanted than Safin and so on...
Look at his variable game... There isn't any weakness in his game and he is really feeling the balls... Something you cant really say about safin... he only plays aggressiv without any tactics - fed is able to play clever...

And of course the mental thing makes it even harder to beat Fed...
But as you could see nothing is impossible ;)

And this is why I think federer would've be just more guy in top five in the nineties. In that age you could find a really MENTAL STRONG MAN players. The current top ten players GET SCARED in the crucial moments like a teenager girl in a dark alley. Again, he would've be just more guy in top five along with edberg, becker,courier, stich, chang, muster, agassi, rios and kafelnikov through those years. I can bet my heart and my soul on that.

Yesterday canas was a reminiscence of those nineties players.
