That's true, but new members to the forum would like to write their comment as well and I think it isn't necessary to open a new thread about a topic which already exists

And maybe to read again in an old thread can be interesting to other users as well

Default Re: Why do you support Roger?

I voted for game style as that's the primary reason why as a player I support Roger over all others...
But it's not why I support Roger in general.

I have to think back to Wimbledon 2003...when he won for that first time...to remember why on that day I became a Federer fan and have not looked back since.

It wasn't that I thought he'd go onto do everything he has achieved since then...I never saw any of this coming.
And though I did fall in love with the beautiful game, I can't say that was the reason either.

What got me the most that day...(and continues to get me everytime since) is how much he cared.
I know people think it's a little much that he keeps crying when he wins. I mean after winning your first 1-2 slams, surely there's nothing left to cry about?!

Yet he still does it.

And to me that is what really sets him apart from other players and slam winners.
It matters to him...tennis matters so much to him. The game, its history, his role in it...and this is one of Roger's best qualities.

Rarely do you see players so aware of what they are becoming a part of...tennis existed long before Roger, and it will continue long after.
I feel that Federer really understands this, and to me his crying is the ultimate expression of his gratitude for being able for this brief moment to be part of that great history that will ultimately outlast him.

Ironically I think he is at his most humble in those moments straight after he wins the match point at a GS. It is in that moment that he is aware of the enormity of it all...that it is so much larger than him.

It's why he is not satisfied with just winning...he wants to bring his best. Because only by doing that will tennis as a whole be elevated...and he be a worthy part of it.

Watching Roger care that year, made me care again too. And that in short (or long) is why I really support him.

^^ I second everything you said in this post, so I won't bother and type it all up myself - you've expressed it perfectly.

Great post!

It's a pity this poll only allows one answer - as for many others, it's both his beautiful game AND his lovely personality that make me love Roger.

Well said

I really like the fact that Roger doesn't take all his victories for granted. He always says that a title can be the last one and that he is therefore much more grateful when he gets it at the end.

He has so much respect for his opponents and the game of tennis in general. It's great to see how much tennis and the history of this sport mean to him. Therefore I think it is a nice idea of him and his sponsors for the special clothes for Wimbledon. And we all won't forget the tears during the Australian Open trophy ceremony last year when he hugged Rod Laver.

There can't be a better champion for this sport as Roger and it is really a pleasure to follow his career.

He's the best ambassador the game ever had.

Sure, he is talented, sucessful, has a terrific game, but for me, it is his personnality that puts him above the rest.

Default Re: Why do you support Roger?

The main reason would be his game style. I first saw him play at RG 06, and I was impressed by his game. I supported Roger then because I preferred the way he played to the way Nadal played. Over the years though to support him throughout tournaments, I guess it would be a combination of things. First and foremost is his game, but also his personality is a factor.
