Default Bad losses that still make you respect the losing player this AO

The Federer-Murray match I feel was one of the above. Roger was outplayed consistently but by sheer determination and willpower he made it to a 5th until the body failed him. This should've ended in straights but Roger fought to the death. I think that match showed all the haters his mental strength and will to live even against a vastly superior opponent who was on fire.

I think even the Fed haters and Murray tards and Nole tards felt a little disgraceful and guilty shitting on Federer after that.

Federer-Tomic match was another one. This ended in straights but Tomic fought like a madman and played very well. It won him a ton of fans and most Fedtards did not shit on Tomic as much after the match.

Almagro-Ferrer. Gave you respect for Almagro for how he fought Ferrer to a 5th.

and of course Wawarinka-Djokovic, where Stanislas will always be known from now on as "the man" No one shitted on Stan after that match. Even Nole tards stayed shut.

I don't respect losers. Sorry. They're gonna have to man up and beat the top if they want to earn my respect.

Why would anybody ever doubt that a 17 time grand slam winner has incredible mental strength?

And I hope that Almagro thing is a joke. That was one of the most embarrassing chokes in GS tennis history. If anything, it made me respect him as a player far less than ever.

Actually if he doesn't have good mental strenght and he is a 17 slam winner it only shows how good his game is, so it's not hating. In any case is the other way around.

He won the majority because he was vastly superior to any other player (bar Rafa on clay). He doesn't have a great record in tight - especially 5 set - matches.

Then again he has a great TB record which shows mental strength, of course.

Agreed, but Almagro vs Ferrer? No chance.

This.

His BP convertion was atrocious too on ocassions.

He won because of how superior he was to the rest of the field. His mental strength wasn't something outstanding like Sampras's or Nadal's

Djokovic-Wawrinka.

For a three set match Federer-Tomic went alright.

He has a mental strength to continue being positive, believe in himself and still playing even when haters, the press, and even some "fans" want to retire him.

Juan Monaco, because he could have just retired after the first set, but just continued even though he knows he had no chance of winning the match. Even the crowd on court 2 applauded him for finishing the match.

No, he won because he is relentless in his belief to attack. Pushing like Djokovic and Nadal is far easier when you're up against the wall. When will people learn...
