Re: Roger Federer : The Swiss King's Quest For 100 Titles
Yeah, okay maybe, but Rog didn't seem too upset by letting that one go, he was clowning around with the trophy and the sunlight. I genuinely think it's a combo of Roger playing casually and the injury theory. Yeah, Tommy was better, and Roger was average, better player won, no quarms there.
Genius is not replicable. Inspiration, though, is contagious, and multiform — and even just to see, close up, power and aggression made vulnerable to beauty is to feel inspired and (in a fleeting, mortal way) reconciled.
