I agree, maybe that wasn't the right word."newly-found confidence" just doesn't fit. i don't think he didn't believe in himself during the federer-match, heck, i don't even think he was doubting his skills when he came on tour as a teen. this guy, like it or not, has by far the highest self esteem out of the whole top 50. he's as confident as they come. and if you read his interviews back in the days when he won umag or the other mm tournaments, you'll notice that a lack of self-confidence has never been his problem. your statement on the other hand implies that by winning his first slam he finally has the mental power to progress. well, this trophy has done little to him as it was hardly possible to bump his ego any more.
I post more on WTAWorld, but when things are slow I like to come over here. :lol:yeah, sorry about that, i didn't mean to offend you.
it's just that i didn't see you around here a lot so i thought you might be one of the nole-fanboys that showed up right after the final and dump a bunch of posts about their new hero.
well, your join date should've given me some hint, i guess.
I am sure that when Federer has a good day and Nole has an off day, we will be seeing a few thumpings. :lol: Even Nadal, who has a healthy lead in the head-to-head with Federer, has endured a few thumpings in his day.I am pretty sure there will be no "thumpings" from Federer neither.From now on will be always close.
The "I was in control of the match" bit was bad, I will admit. We will throw that one away to being so young. :lol:It's more of Djoko's parents being arrogant. Djoko isn't really arrogant persay. He is confident in his abilities but overall he respects his opponents. Some things he said are a turn off though. (I was in control of the match; Federer is going down, etc.)
