^^ Regarding Fed's presser, well he certainly doesn't mince words when praising himself But though I am terribly dejected with yesterday's loss, I don't really mind his self-adulation( he does have reasons to love himself more than a lot of us do ). What I do mind is when he gives back handed compliments to his opponents like when Djokovic won Montreal, he said he is nothing special really, has a solid backhand, solid forehand etc

Federer is a lot of things, including not being humble. But spoiled rich kid shows you don't know too much about his background/ juniors days.
This is the guy who would feel "guilty" to win against players who came from poor backgrounds or countries with no tennis federations because he felt they had already struggled so much while he had had it easy in relation.

I love the way sawan always addresses his monumental drivel personally to Federer, as though the latter might be perchance perusing MTF to seek some tips from posters here about the state of his game. I've said it before, but when Federer has success there are some posters who will take straw-clutching to new heights to try and undermine his wins somehow. This latest effort isn't quite in the same league of petty spitefulness as Veronique's "How many times this year was Federer left on the sidelines watching someone else hold up the trophy?" thread at the end of last year, but it's getting close.

ROGER FEDERER: Yeah, I remember this one time when I went on a vacation on the Maldives. That was in the year 2001, I think. I went to this spa. I went to walk around with my girlfriend. I walk in, and we want to book a spa. This guy goes, "AHH, I remember you. You beat Sampras. I saw you on TV." That was like, really, how can you remember me? This guy has probably never been off his island and still knows me. I was a little bit shocked. Then I went to play tennis with him because he was actually the tennis teacher. It was nice.

Q. Were you naked at the time in the spa?

ROGER FEDERER: No. It was at the front desk. I didn't walk in naked.

hist interview against Gonzalez was worse, this is nothing compared to that


Q. Since you became No. 1 you've never lost to so many different players. What's the meaning of that? The competition is getting harder?
ROGER FEDERER: Uhm, well, I mean, look, it's not that easy to keep up the pace I have the last few years. I mean, let's not forget how great they were. I had one season where I lost a lot to Rafa. Obviously that takes away. I didn't lose to many players, you know.
It's true maybe I went for more in a run. I won more titles than this year. But, I mean, defended my No. 1 title and won the Grand Slams. I don't need to sing a song, but it's been another fantastic season.
Some players or people might think now he's more vulnerable. I disagree obviously. I'm going to hopefully show them again this week and then obviously next year again.

I can bring up examples of his temper tantrums if you like, but it doesn't matter.

I'm not trying to stir up the emotions of Federer supporters. Federer is not a bad person because he's spoiled. And spoiled doesn't mean that he's a jerk. By spoiled I mean that he's rich, has a higher opinion of himself than normal and frankly is quite shallow, which is the result of not being particularly intelligent (as most tennis players aren't as well).

Becker was a very nice guy. Of course by nice guy I mean in terms of the way he conducted himself socially. He was very well liked by other players and was in general quite gentlemanly.

His tendency to be dramatic on the court didn't really transfer over to the locker room and he never swore at opposing players, only at himself.

As for his adventures with women and other stuff, frankly that's something completely separate.

Yes, but I bet you took your revenge and laughed your ass off

I see I misunderstood, I took spoiled to mean sense of entitlement.

If you where an English speaker, you would realized by inserting the word hopefully he is being very humble.

PS

I have two words for the haters: Fat Dave. He is your only hope next year. Don't think that Nadal is going to get the job done outside clay, because he isn't, or that the Djoker is going to get it done on any surface at all, because he isn't. Your second best hope after Fat D is probably Murray.

If Nalbandian goes back to the rally cars, then look forward to another year of straw-clutching and ridiculous attempts to belittle Roger's achievements.
