As for taking responsibility - yes perhaps he could or should have said something in reference to his distress, I don't know. I'm pretty reluctant to tell people how they should feel or how they should show it - while displays of raw emotion can be uncomfortable it doesn't necessarily make it wrong either. What I think was the problem here is that it did end up taking the focus away from Rafa, and I think it is still doing so. Rafa did an amazing thing to win the Australian, winning two five set matches back to back in the last two rounds, playing nearly 10 hours in those two matches with 1 day of rest between, and to a degree I think Roger's reaction has taken too much focus away from that. That's where I'm coming from in all this - that it should really all be about Rafa's win, not Roger's loss.
Nice piece of verbal gimnastics there.... oh, well... doesn't matter, as MTK said, is all matter of opinion. Perhaps the only thing we really differ here is the tone, or basically the harshness-level of critique. Fed can cry all he whats as far as Im concerned, not the first time Ive seen him do it. Just that this one I found really bad since even now that he lost he managed to ruin it somehow and make it all about himself again. Nothing new though one can really wonder whats gonna happen next time he loses GS finals to Nadal. Cheers.

federer's tears were justified because he lost more than a tennis match that day and the loss will reverberate for some time to come.

but i wasn't moved by the emotion and i wasn't impressed with the duration of the episode.

Are Nadal's apologies justified?

Seriously, I wish Rafa would stop apologizing to Roger every time he beats him. I don't see Roger apologizing to anybody when he rips their dreams apart. In fact in his mind he's doing them all a favor by putting them out of their misery.

But that is something that Rafa has to stop doing. I think he is afraid of seems like a bad guy or something. You can´t apologize when you defeat someone, tennis is about defeating other guys.
But it´s fine, Rafa started the year in an amazing way, and some Roger´s tears wont change that.

Pd: Roger for example apologize Del Potro at least two times after winning because saw him affected.

I would agree with your point if it could have been Roger's last match in his career. Does he retire anytime soon and has no other chance of wining a slam? If not, are we going to continue seeing the same kind of drama each time he looses his next slam final? I hope not because I care less about his desperation to match Pete’s record.

Affirmative, wtf is he apologizing for? Roger is not a little child who should cry when someone breaks his favorite toy. Nadal is beating him for his own good. He should thank him.

The tears are justified, it just shouldn't have happened during the trophy ceremony though.

Go to the locker room pretending to change shirts and cry there as they are setting up the podium or something. Crying on the podium not only makes you look weak, but also ruins the moment for nadal cause he has to go console roger and act all proper lest he be raked over the coals for being unsportsmanlike even though fed was being unsportsmanlike here.

there's no need for Rafa to apologies, it's fake and unnecessary
