I'm so sorry, I didn't mean to appear rude, I only just found your reply. Stupid Mia.

Raging Bull, I still have not seen - awful I know, even worse as a De Niro fan. But I have semi good reason, I lent my brand new unopened copy to someone, and then we had a parting of ways and bye bye DVD. Still grates my cheese, when I think about it. Taxi Driver is immense, but I cannot call it a fave because it is hard to watch, likewise Deer Hunter. I also have not seen Rain Man. I really shouldn't call myself a movie buff should I !! Dustin Hoffman is wicked though, frequent co-star of my hero. Them together in Sleepers. OMG W.O.W. Have you seen that?

My brother is a frequent visitor of Sweden - loves it there!

Absolutely. I'm so happy to have taken the plunge, I have felt very welcome here since. It's great to be part of such a lovely community of fans

Afraid of the fangirlyness, yes Seeing as you're one who frequents the FAN thread (good taste ) then you'll know a fair few of us have a slight interest in Roger's "relationships" with his fellow players. I am one of them, and when it comes to Marat and Roger...

If I'm being serious, though, I do just love the two of them for their relationship as friends, and colleagues. They've known each other for so long now, both have spoken about "growing up" on tour together, coming through juniors, and then playing doubles, and of course then the unique bond that is born out of a rivalry. They match up so well too - Marat's awesome power vs Roger's grace and finesse, Marat's fieryness on court vs Roger's cool, zen-like state. I just find that so fascinating to watch, and really believe Marat's injuries cheated us out of what could have been an amazing rivalry.

There's also something very genuine and almost familiar in the way they interact and speak about each other, a very easy undercurrent of respect, not necessarily something that has to be explicitly stated. I think that kind of thing that can only come out of having been friends since such a young age, and of course being from the same "tennis generation".

See?! Once you get me going, I start writing a bloody essay!

Sorry!

I agree though. Without being too fangirly myself, and speaking from purely a tennis standpoint, I really believe that Marat (has) had as much talent on court as Rogi, he had all the shots and although he didn't appreciate his own volleying ability, I thought/think he has wonderful touch at net - beautiful hands. Which kinda puzzles me as to why fast grass was such an issue.
But injury denied his potential and confidence was a major factor also. Roger, previous to last year, never really suffered in these respects and is why he is soooo close to GOATing. Safi and Rogi are like ying & yang. As you say "power vs finesse, fieriness vs cool". Opposites attract and all!

Hello everyone...I am Neha and I am from India. I had registered ages back but never got around posting. But, better late than never!!! Anyway, I am a fan of both Roger and Rafa but I enjoy watching Roger more. I've never played tennis [too lazy for it!!]. Otherwise, I love listening to music,reading books and watching movies.

Hi, fellow Federer fans! I'm Nathalie. (I think this is the right place to introduce myself.) Anyways I've been supporting Federer ever since I started watching tennis. Roger is the king of tennis! I enjoy watching his games a lot! However this year he hasn't claimed any title yet , but I'm sure he can go through this tough time (with us!) and get back to his very best form soon. Also, happy to hear that he's becoming a papa this summer. Congrats!
Hmm, I like Gasquet as well.

^^ Hi there Nathalie, and welcome!
Hope you'll have fun over here. In general people are all very nice and friendly over here.

It's no problem to like other players as well. As long as it isn't... okay I'll shut up for now.
