Nothing to do with hating thread... please refer to my signature.

Fed has weapons, this clown Goffin has none.

This is not ridiculous... I think that moment was pretty sweet. What's wrong about idolizing the best player that has ever played this sport?

Actually no I think it is a very good picture. A young man gets to meet his idol, don't know what the big deal is.

And Goffin "imitates Federer"? Since when His style is not similar at all. Dimitrov is a completely different story though.

Exactly... Goffin imitating Federer is pretty new to me... Since the first time I watched Dimitrov vs Nadal few years ago, I seen that he is trying hard to imitate every single move of his, but Goffin?

Trying to emulate [insert any Big Name Player X's name here]'s game is usually pointless and like you say, it's not going to help out any player in improving his game - rather the contrary as it only adds to the pressure.

In case of Goffin, I sure hope that that's not what he's trying to do (and if it is, I hope his coach/team/mum-and-dad/dog/cat/parrot etc. tell him to stop it!) - I think it's rather a media-hype matter, looking out for the "new" Big Player X and putting that stamp on any youngster's forehead who acknowledges to be a fan of said Big Player X.

There will never be another Fed, never another Nadal, never another Djokovic, etc. The only thing that may occur is that certain young players may succesfully (or not-so-succesfully ) adopt certain elements of the game of these Big Name Players.

As for the bolded part of your post, I couldn't agree more!
