He was not a blubbering mess, there were a few tears but nothing any
high-achieving pro athelte hasn't done in a locker room after a huge,
crushing defeat. You people are trying to spin it like he was Jana Novotna
out there. Well, my singular joy is in knowing that you pathetic assclowns
who will never achieve 1% of Federer's greatness. Keep on tearing him down,
I'm pretty sure if Rafa knew about you people he'd be disgusted.

No, he wasn't blubbering, and I _did_ feel for Roger - the massive
weight of expectations he has built up for himself, and the nice
ovation he received, could send anyone over the edge. I certainly
understand why Federer would lose it.

That being said, he has to be able to hold himself together _until_
the locker room when he loses. It's not fair to Rafa, who's a
thoroughly decent guy, to have to temper his celebration in order to
not pile on his emotional archival. First last year's French Open, and
now this. Rafa deserves the limelight to be on him, and to not have to
worry about subduing his own emotions to accommodate Federer, as much
as he may seem willing to do so.

Hopefully, Fed will somehow use this to make the changes to his game
he needs to make to take one of these from the Spaniard. They are two
amazing players, and we're very lucky to be seeing all this brilliant
tennis taking place before us.

Cheers.

I'm pretty sure if Rafa saw your many, many quality posts about
himself and Federer, such as this:
http://groups.google.com/group/rec.sport.tennis/browse_thread/thread/58e507=
d34d8a47a2?q=3D

to give just one illustrious example, he would in no way be disgusted.
Not at all. Keep up the good work -- we need an incorruptible
constabulary.

I've turned a new leaf after this. I will not post any negative comments
about players anymore.
