Federer and Me: ‘I hadn’t known such excellence was possible. And the effect upon me was instantaneous’

Quote:
At the age of 30, tennis fan William Skidelsky developed an obsession with Roger Federer that cast a shadow over his love life and work – but it helped him resolve issues of self-doubt that had plagued him since boyhood

''but it helped him resolve issues of self-doubt that had plagued him since boyhood''

That pretty much sums up every Feddytard

Federer, Nadal and Djokovic pander to plutocrats and charge huge appearance fees. The "trickle down effect" means that tournaments like the Heineken Open now have to pay appearance money for racketeers that many of us have never heard of. It's close to extortion.
Quote:
At the end of Federer's first round match at the Australian Open a fawning interviewer asked about his kids and if he had bought coach Stefan Edberg a birthday present - no, by the way, the privilege of knocking up with 'King Roger' was enough of a present apparently.

ahahaa. The British media, the biggest Murray nutters around, being quoted on this site... At least, no talk of Premiere League being the best today. Maybe until the final matches are played. lol

Looking back, I can see that, during this confused time, Federer functioned as a point of constancy, of stability. It was as if he provided the security I craved but couldn’t achieve. There was a comfort in knowing that, throughout the year, he would be playing somewhere, and wherever that was, I could tune in and watch.
I mean, he is just a fucking tennis player. Completely pathetic.

Well, I kinda understand. There is a spiritual consistency for me in knowing that, whatever is going on in our chaotic world, or in my life, the one constant of the year will be Andrey Kuznetsov choking in some far flung corner of the world

Federer isn't even my second favourite player but go ahead with your childish insults. Unlike Nadal fans like yourself, I actually have a life that doesn't revolve around tennis.

you are apparently 40 years old and you spend most of your time on a tennis forum

I appears that I am not the only one who lacks a life

No I don't. I spend most of my time doing other things. I actually interact with other human beings, whereas you and the other Dullito fans probably have restraining orders against them.

But keep trying. One day you will realise there is more to life than supporting bullies and cheats.
