Tsonga won in 4 in both R1 and R2 Morons, honestly. Simple research is obviously far too hard, let's just guess, shall we?

Two good ones from Fed's presser today. Fed takes the first one in a sane manner, to his credit.. I have no idea how these people can ask these stupid things poker-faced, unless they think they're being funny


Q. You lost to Tsonga in five sets in Wimbledon. You also lost to Djokovic in five sets. Would this victory in five sets confirm that you can win a match in five sets?


ROGER FEDERER: I know I can win a match in five sets. I should have, I could have, against Jo or Novak. It was so close against Novak. Afterwards it’s normal to have regrets.

No, I’m not asking myself that kind of question. I’m fit. I have no physical problems, which was different three, five weeks ago. I’m very happy. I’m in good shape. That’s it. I’m fine.

It’s always good to come back from two sets to zero. You don’t always play matches in five sets, and that was the one I had to win.


Q. This was a complicated match, but do you think you can raise your level to defeat Djokovic as you did last year?


ROGER FEDERER: Yes. What else can I say?





Edit:

Also these are the best stupid questions put to Federer over the years: http://federerroger.tumblr.com/post/19693015266

Default Re: Stupid Journalism at Press Conferences. RG/ITWA bans press transcripts

This is a whole compilation of answers to stupid question by RF. I am not sure if it's one presser or more but it's very funny and apt

http://federerroger.tumblr.com/post/19693015266

Q: What was the last question you didn't expect and what was the question and what did you answer and when? Do you remember?
Roger Federer: Don't know. Maybe one of yours. I don't know.
Q: Are you missing Nadal at this tournament?
Roger Federer: We're not dating, so no.
Q: Talking about legends, in 2003 you managed to beat Pete Sampras at Wimbledon. He was an icon at that time.
Roger Federer: 2001.
Q: You're on the official car this year. How does it feel to see yourself on the move every day?
Roger Federer: I can't sleep at night, it's so amazing, the feeling...
Q: Before you make the challenge there's a picture of two players on the court. Yours was red and black and blurry. It's just not very flattering. Perhaps you could change the quality of the picture?
Roger Federer: [No response]
Q: Is there any chance of getting one of your towels?
Roger Federer: No. We don't have that many. They're for my friends. I don't know you. But good try.
Q: You're still No. 1. That's good.
Roger Federer: Thank you. I'm happy you say so.
Q: Do you still think you can win Roland Garros?
Roger Federer: Yes.
Q: Are you sure?
Roger Federer: Well, if you want me to answer no if that makes you happy, then no. Choose the answer. I said yes.
Q: Imagine it's 2009 and this little fairy comes to you and says, You're going to win one tournament, but you have to choose - Wimbledon or Roland Garros. Which one?
Roger Federer: I don't want to answer these stupid questions any more. They're too stupid.
Q: But why?
Roger Federer: Because I want to win at everything. I have no preference.
Q: So you waited 27 years to win in Paris. You won the US Open, Wimbledon and the Australian Open much earlier. Does it give a special flavor to this trophy?
Roger Federer: First, I never waited 27 years, because 27 years ago I was just born. My parents never told me, If you don't win Roland Garros we take you to the orphanage.

Man, this is hilarous. Roger at his best bagelling every journalist in sight. Love his answers.

There's more. I just read this on Twitter.

Interviewer: Are you certain you are from Switzerland?
Roger:I think yes. I can't remember because I was very small, very little when it happened.

Questions like that and Roger's polite answers to them are used to build his image of a prima donna. The press are a bunch of idiots. The headline of the BBC who cannot even be bothered to show the French this year was "Federer beats injured Del Potro". I mean just .

It sure did. Most of the Qs are from the presser following FO 2009 and 2008. As you can guess by the question about ever winning RG.

It says: "Imagine it's 2009". That probably means they knew he had already won it and he wanted to go back before that.
