This has been a particularly acute problem for the last few years. Federer
makes a shot that were it made by another play it would pass without much
comment. However the Federer Kool-Aid drinkers that seem to have infested
the world of tennis commentary feel the need to pontificate about it.

You have trouble understanding what is happening.
You or I are capable of making any 'one' of Federer's shots at some
point, rarely, and largely by fluke. Our mates on the sideline would
give us a good cheer and a slap on the back but they'd know it was far
above our level and not something we could do again upon demand. When
Federer pulls out an outstanding shot the commentators rightfully
gush, because they know he is capable of that, it's not the shot, it's
because he is capable of shots like that.

Irritating trend in newsgroup commentary ...

This has been a particularly acute problem for the last few years.
Federer
plays a match which passes without much comment. However the Federer
haters that seem to have infested the world of RST feel the need to
pontificate about it.

It's still hard to be you, isn't it? Even with Federer at #2.
