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).
Roger's spoiled cause he's rich? Roger only been rich for a couple of years, worked his tail off for the money and fame. Spoiled is what I would call a guy who had things HANDED to him. Roger had nothing handed to him, nor did he peak early. He still remembers the painful defeats, that what makes him a champion.

Roger has always been rich. And I'm not saying that he's necessarily spoiled because of his tennis. He's just spoiled in general, pampered, consumerist. I bet he has never finished a book in his life.

Everything. Roger is content on pretending to be sophisticated by wearing expensive clothes (based on an actual Roger quote). After all, no one will tell him that there's anything wrong with that. He'll be surrounded by butt-kissers for the rest of his life.

But he is still a nice guy. Don't get me wrong.

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.
It is not narcissism to recognize facts that have really happened. Roger says it is difficult to maintain the magnificent trend of 2006 in which, apart from Nadal, he lost so few matches. Nobody, not even him, can deny that 2006 was an ideal season. Compared to that this one could be dismissed by some, but hopefully he will show that 2007 was also a very good year. The bolded word separates facts from legitimate aspirations.

If you compare tonight's match with yesterday's match, it's a similar pattern. When you're playing like this, are there any answers to your game you see on the horizon in the men's game? Is there any difference between the challenge you felt in the course of the match between tonight and last night?





ROGER FEDERER: I don't know what to say, I am shocked I won. I don't really have the tools to win against Andy, he is a vastly better players as everyone knows, but I just got so lucky this and the other 14 times. Of course I am always nervous because when I am about to get on a roll I am always worried that I won't be able to keep it up and choke in the end. I don't really think I have much talent, although people say that, they are mistaken you know, it just sometimes looks like that I am not sure why.
Today I was so lucky to beat Andy but most other players would have beaten me.

Yes, Roger is no different from most people. He was born into a rich family and has always been exposed to certain pleasures in life.

Credit must be given where it's due: he moved out of the house early, travelled like crazy as a teen (probably was homesick a lot), and in general earned his way to where he is right now. This is for sure.

Federer is just honest. You won't see the false humility Sampras had.

Good attempt at showing the other side. But I suppose there is a middle ground too(I personally don't mind his self praise. He could say " Well I am glad I have beaten him most times we have met. I suppose its hard for Roddick because its a bad matchup"

It is perfectly understandable if Nadal says in his presser that when Fed's playing like that, he's hard to beat. but it is definitely funny( only in a positive sense) if he says the same thing about himself
