Obviously Roger did not want to cry in front of millions of viewers worldwide. He couldn't hold his tears in. He has always had trouble holding back his emotions, win or lose. Not his fault it happened to come out during the ceremony.

And you dare talk about "haters"?

Btw, for any sane person a death of one's child/wife/mother/father/friend is a "soul-crushing" loss.
Losing a tennis match is just losing a tennis match. Especially if you were never in position to win it.

Well I guess people respond differently to victory and defeat. If I had lost that match I would not have cried, but they'd need to remodel the locker room, cause I'd have done some serious damage in there.

Of course it's justified. Rafa's already kicked his arse in the last 2 slam finals they contested, he really looked shattered after Wimbledon but held his tears, he couldn't do it yesterday and it's understandable. Yesterday showed Fed that Rafa has really taken over the mantle, and he's conquering all courts now.

He just couldn't deal with the idea that he's done being the world's best player, after being at the top for so long, and not being able to equal Sampras's record.

Credit to Rafa though, we all know he wanted to celebrate his heart out, but he stayed quiet, a true professional.

Of course it's justified...Fed’s an emotional guy and this was a huge occasion. It was sad to see.

Most successful tennis players or athletes have had moments like this after a demoralising loss but in the locker-room.

Why did Fed cry?

Because his own arrogance is eating on him. His reliance that the other guy is less talented, less ready or will simply choke... Simple as that.

Here's what PatMac said:

"The problem for him is that he's never had to really adjust to anything. He's always been so good and so talented, he could just rely on his game and kind of figure it out when he gets out there. All of a sudden, he's playing a guy he can't do that against. … He doesn't get on top of the guy when he's down, and he thought he was going to go away physically."

So true.

Exactly. Spoilt blubbering baby had everything his own way for last 5 years cant take it that Nadal now owns him on every surface. What did he expext he'd dominate till he was 50
Its pathethic that people are feeling sorry for a multi-millioaire 13x GS champ because he lost a tennis match, you people have no idea what hardship or problems are!

And for hose of you who said he didnt mean and he wouldn't want to take Nadals moment away or whatever, why did he not apologise for his actions in the press conference afterwards??

not just that, but it also tells me that Fed still underestimates Rafa and think he's a better player than him.

Apologize for crying? Really? A multimillionare guy can´t have problemas, have feelings, be sad because has many? I think that point of view is pathetic.
