That is a ludicrous exaggeration. Although I admit he finds it hard to hide his hatred of losing.

Why wasn't Federer fined for finger wagging at the french open?
I have never seen such a threatening gesture on a professional sports field...

I always viewed Federer as a guy who tells it like it is and doesn't really BS in press conferences. We never see him W/O or complain of injuries on court either, so I'm guessing these might have something to do with winning the award.

Novak cares so much and tries so hard to be well liked/beloved and yet he can't win fan favorite or SE award.

That was a celebration after the match was over. You really are nitpicking. Djokovic went nuts after saving match point when the match was not even over! That disturbed the entire rhythm of play during that pivotal game. That can also be considered as gamesmanship.

The (extremely mild - what would you guys do with Muhammad Ali?) triumphalism Federer displayed was a tacit acknowledgement of Djoker's new status in the game.

Because Rafa also doesn't get fined for going over the timelimit between points.

At least being a protective fan is better than just being a widely remarked idiot And no, as a woman, I don't need your permission to speak to anyone, thank you kindly

ITF and nike collectively run this "goat" campaign of theirs and they need to strengthen that campaign as much as possible to drag more number of novices towards the sport every year......

i never thought tennis would turn into such a whorish and utterly commercial sport......
Ahh, so THAT's how Rafa got it last year? Wow, we'd never have known without you telling us
