Did Nadal cry when he lost to Federer in the Wimbledon finals in 05 & 06 when he came so close? Nope.

Did Roddick cry when he lost to Federer after giving it his all at the Wimbledon 04 finals + Wimbly 05/USO 06 when he was CONSTANTLY losing to Fererer? Nope.

Roger needs to grow up, plain and simple. Ever since Nadal knocked him off the top spot and he started to really struggle at the start of 2008 he has been a grouch and simply cannot accept the fact that he is not the favorite anymore and often times he is going in as the 3rd or 4th favorite behind Djokovic and Murray at times.

You lack one ounce of compassion in your body. Anyone who understands Roger knows that he did not try to upstage Nadal in the ceremony in a "look at me" type of thing. It's your pure hatred of the man that twists everything.

That's true, when he went up to the mike a second time, he said he's going to give it another try because Rafa should have the last word.

Roger's tears were awkward, yes, but people are being too harsh on him. Everyone's different, this guy gets emotional. Big deal.

The way I look at the whole is like a Greek tragedy. Who wouldn't shed some tears? Are we supposed to not weep for Hector because Achilles is so brutal and strong?

Thanks for letting people know you're not a serious fan.

No real tennis fan can be a fan of both players.

I have to admit I engaged in many idiotic displays over the last 2 years on this forum. I am regretting every instance of it now because it just fuels all the other idiots on this board. Too bad MTF couldn't be a place to rationally discuss tennis, instead it's just "Fanboi wars".

I thought Fed cried because he had people (and a lot of them) cheering for him during the match. Yes, he was disappointed and disheartened but even more so when he had most of the support. He was quick to finally state how much Rafa deserved the win. Case closed. Nadal the Champ and that was the final word.

He was devastated. He's going to cry like that anyway; in the locker room or bath tub or in the toilet. It's just how much he cares.

Common...... I have never seen other tennis players/champs face similar situation like Roger. They would have QUIT by this time (you know who[s]), unlike Roger who keeps on playing like an energizer bunny. It is even to a point of humiliating but there's nothing to be ashamed of. It shows his mental weakness against Nadal but no need to put him down like as if he hasn't achieved anything.

Bandwagoners. After Nadal has achieved similar numbers, we will talk again.

One could make the case for Nadal as GOAT already. #1, Won slams on all surfaces(grass, clay, hard). Olympic gold medal, Davis Cup titles. I think given that Nadal HAS won everything once, it will be interesting to see how his motivation stays the same.

LMFAOOOOOOO. wow, good call. You could see throughout the whole game the 2 million dollars in Mirka's eyes. And when Federer lost and started crying at the ceremony... She didn't show any emotions and just put her hand on top of her mouth... Plus I'm sure Rafa pretended he felt bad for Fed. LOL

they were but i wish he hadnt, he has shown cracks and it will be hard for him to ever come back from it

its doing things like this that are killing his aura with other players, and he'll find it harder and harder even just getting to GS finals nevermind making finals and trying to beat Nadal

worst thing is he didnt need to show that, a few better points here and there and he coulda beaten Nadal with utter ease today.

There are a few schools of thought on showing emotion publicly. Obviously someone like Djokovic(?) will sense blood in the water. OTOH, I don't know how Djoko's 7 retirements isn't MUCH worse then Fed's little cry after losing a GS Final. One thing for sure, he's officially entered Andy Roddick's personal hell.

the stuff about it being pansy behaviour is just pure bullcrap

if you wanna talk about pansies look at the players who take to court with Nadal, win around 6 games and smile, hug and worship him at the end like they should be almost grateful to him for the lesson

props to Verdasco, Fed this week

However, how much criticism have Fed's victims received for their graciousness in losing? This is a very fine line we're dealing with here, between being just classy enough and being an absolute jerk like a Connors.
