This.

Basically it's a public admission they do whatever they can (or are allowed to) to break the rules. Well, it's nothing new here, but at least finally they admit it. How could Nadal win the sportsmanship award in 2010?

Fortunately Rosol studied all Nadal's dirty tricks, and saved tennis with a superb display at wimbledon. After that he felt his mission was accomplished.

Once upon a time there was a myth about strong and weak eras. On this glorious day the clownery was eventually unmasked: 30 y.o. past-prime daddy Fed became #1 once again in the supposed strong "Spartan" era with his rivals at their peak.
And they all lived happily ever after.
Long live King Federer!
