this exho is lacking chispa, if you know what I mean
wish Del Po wasn't so serious.

Fantastic atmosphere. Full house - people seated close to each other (packed into narrow seats like an old school soccer stadium)

What venue is it?

Default Re: Gillette Federer Tour 2012 ♥ South America

Ok. Here we go.
Hello friends of the Fedforum.
I feel this place as my specific piece of heaven in MTF. We don't trashtalk about players as in GM, we just spread our love for Federer, and that's what i'm going to do today.

First of all, I know so many people here watched Fed live before, so you'll be like "This guy is a little annoying about this", and yes, you'd probably consider this text boring, but I won't stop writing what I feel about Roger and what he means in my life, these are my words and this is my first (and hopefully not last) time watching him. Watching my tennis god, and one of the biggest parts of my life, this is my report about Roger Federer in Argentina, and yes, it's long as shit, longer than the perimeter of the world, but who cares? If you love Federer as I do, you'll read it. BRING IT ON.

As you know, I went to the first exho here in Argentina, yesterday 12/12/12, Federer played in my country for the first time.

You know me from MTF, you know which players I like, you know which specific tennis style I like and you know how I feel about Federer, his legend is something bigger than my thoughts about it, and believe me, I think of Federer so much time.

Federer played in the city of Tigre, Buenos Aires. In a new stadium made only for this exhos, the "Estadio Pipa Tigre".

20.600 people were there yesterday to watch the first of two exhibition matches Federer played with Del Potro.
You should also take note of Delpo playing here. Del Potro is one of the biggest sportmen of Argentina, but he rarely plays in Buenos Aires. You all know his story with Davis Cup, as he plays "Sometimes" and some people are very agressive with him about that, he also don't plays the Buenos Aires ATP since 2005.
So, so many people didn't saw our best player, he was chosen to play Federer and I should agree it was a good desition. I'm not a big fan of Delpo, but I respect him.

Federer's visit was a big event here. All the newspapers and TV-news programs were talking about it. Federer is one of the most loved tennis players here. Even more than some locals, people cheered for Roger today.
One of the most important tennis magazines here the "GRIP magazine", titled their monthly magazine "Illustrious visitor". (And that's pretty important because this month happened the Davis Cup Final and the WTF).
Here, check the cover:


As you can see, the whole tennis people in the country was expecting this so bad.

Well... The evening started with another exhibition match with our 2 best hystorical players, José Luis Clerc and the living legend Guillermo Vilas.
It was a pretty beautiful match to watch. The old folks can still hit the ball, I must confess Clerc is a lot more prepared than Vilas to play tennis, but talent never dies, and Willy made some beautiful shots, specially with his backhand.
Clerc won the match 6-2 6-1.

Then, the stadium had some weird problems. Remember they made it only for this match. And let me tell you something, i'm pretty sure they oversold the event. I'm pretty sure there were more than the 20.600 people they say.
And these problems peaked when part of the stands fell off. Fortunately, nobody fell and there were no injured people, but 150 people had to be "Moved".
And with "moved", I mean, put them in the corridors of the stadium. Sitting there and in the space between the first row and the railing (I hope you understood me).

Okay, time for the truth.
I bought some old-magazines to read during the week, "Australian Open 2010, Wimbledon 2006 and US Open 2008".
After a tango exhibition and a real bad version of our national anthem, it was time for the moment of our lives.

20.600 people (Probably more, as I said before), including so many famous personalities of Argentina were expecting that moment.

"World number two, 17 grand slams titles, the record man, one of the best 5 sportsmen in the world and the best tennis player in history: ROGEEEEEEEEER FEDEREEEEEEEEEEER".
Yes, they announced him like that. And when he came out, to the stadium, I was so excited and emotional I must confess you all, Fedforum, I spread some tears.
Yes, I cried, once again, for my tennis god, only this time with a smile on my face I couldn't move.
Seriously, my muscles were jammed, I couldn't do anything more than smile and clap and cheer "Olé, olé, olé, olé, Roger, Roger".

He was there, my idol, the tennis legend. Oh my god, I still can't believe it. I had a really good seat, 2nd row of the lowest stand (I found a new job just to save money and buy it). And there he was. Damnit.

I took a lot of pictures (I think they were more than 50, I'm thinking of uploading them tomorrow, I can't now).

Okay, time for what you want to read and not that excited emotional faggot when he saw his little player, time for tennis and talk about the match.

Federer started the match playing in JesusFed form, hiting backhands like a boss and no shanks. His forehand was in his amazing level we know. I was really excited and happy, and I thought "If Federer plays like this set in the AO, he has a very nice chance for the title".
Amazing level, great shots. Today I'm a witness of magic. I know, I saw that on TV a lot of times, but that was magic. Return winners, slicing the ball like a boss and agressive strokes we all love to watch.

The 2nd and 3rd set was Relaxerer on the house. Literally. I'm pretty sure the matches were rigged (Come on, they're exhos, I'll confirm my theory if Roger wins tomorrow in 3 sets).
Federer was pretty relaxed, entertaining the crowd and he seemed so happy during the whole match.
Making people happy, showing his talent and why he's the best.

Delpo won the match, 3-6 6-3 6-4. Was it fair? Maybe. I still think this was an exho and both will win one match.
Do I care? No. I watched my tennis god. I saw him smile and having a great time with us.

I saw him making return winners, a nice tweener, and a "Drop shot return winner". Of course, his massive forehands were always there, and amazing backand winners in the first set.
Yes, there were some shanks and it was good to watch, this is our Feddy and we know shanks are part of him.
Moments of JesusFed, moments of Shankerer, Relaxerer. We had it all, people cheering for him all the time. He entreteining the crowd by showing his amazing skills (Making passing lobs to the ball-kids, always landed on their hands, without them moving). Gifting some balls to the crowd, smiling, enjoying the crowd and the chants.

Delpo said something pretty interesting after the match:
"- How do you feel?
- Really happy, playing Roger, even when I lose is amazing. The best sensation tennis can give you.
- You won today. Will you let him win tomorrow?
- (Laughs), of course not! Look at me, i'm all sweaty, I gave my best, I changed my shirt 5 times! He only changed it once, he just doesn't sweat, he's not human".

Even in those little facts you can see his legend.

Federer also said the argentinian crowd seemed to be a football crowd, and he always had dreams of becoming a football player, so he enjoyed the chants and it was like "Making that little dream true".
I know, those things people say for the crowd, but still... Can you blame me for beeing happy?

I have no words for describe what I feel about Federer, watching him live was one of my biggest dreams of my life coming truth.
I don't know if this was the best day of my life, maybe it was, maybe not. I'd probably answer that when I can digest it well, time will tell.

I'm a happy person today. Roger: It's not the first time you made me happy, but it is the first time I could look to your real eyes, and now I can say again: "This man made me cry, this man made me a happy person".

Roger Federer in Argentina. I was there. I still can't believe it.


I'm sorry Fedforum for this long post. But I can't deny my feelings. I prefer for you, my MTFriends to read it and, at least, feel a little like I do. I'm telling you the truth here, this is how I feel.

I hope it's not the last time, but if it is, i'll be okay.

When I die... I will say I had some great days and moments, this one was one of them, one of the best. Thank you Roger. Thank you for coming, I hope you can feel welcomed here.

You are tennis.

Your style is also unique, Viruzz, like Federer's

and like his, it gives me a big smile

I'm happy that you had a very good seat, 2nd row from the stands, imo that's VERY important to really enjoy to have a good seat (personally I prefer being behind the court, not too high).

And nice that they made an exho Vilas-Clerc, such great champions

I think Roger really means it that he likes the "football atmosphere", it's really what I would hope from playing in front of an Argentinian crowd, and I'm glad he could live it

And you could live it too, Viruzz, even glader

PS : good idea to read magazines of AO 2010, USO 2008 and Wimbledon 2006 before this moment imo, an idea to remember imo, and your emotion in the beginning of the match probably came from all those emotions accumulated ... and it's surely an emotion you will not forget even though I hope for you it will not be the happiest moment of your life

Thanks Viruzzz!!!
You brought us, me surely in that place to live again with you all those emotions.
Your report wasn't long at all and even I'm not the best reader in English I didn't lose a word of what you wrote.
You deserved this moment - maybe more than me or many other people who has known about Fed for 2-3 years.
Your dream has been for so long time, you even had to save money to make this become truth (even if I can't go for a whole week to see him in a tournament it's easier to do it for a day 2 so I know what you feel and what it means and I can consider myself happy) and now it became truth. I'm absolutely happy for you Viruzzz.

The match was in the night here and like the other times I planned to watch it today but the video isn't available.
Maybe Roger doesn't have the rights to take it visible online.
Does somebody know a way to watch it- It seems nobody on youtube uploaded it and no highlights are there.
So tonight I have to be awake but it's tough do it until 3-4am. I'm not a big fan of Delpo's tennis and even if I like the guy as a person I would prefer watching Roger playing guys like Tsonga or Haas so I hope at least if I can't tonight to be able to watch the last match in Colombia.

thanks for the report and feelings Viruzzz

Today Fed was playing "tennis-football" with Gabriel Batistuta, DelPo and some Boca Juniors players at La Bombonera. It seems Rog is trying to do everything he wants in just a few days :P
