This digging up and twisting answers/opinions by the regular haters
though is getting quite old. See the full interviews and it's not
nearly as one sided as presented here.

No doubt Fed has a huge ego, but he acknowledges players' ability as
much as dismisses them. So there's a nice balance there if you allow
yourself to see it.

Some people just have a hard time with his honesty and go way
overboard.

What's that?

So it must be true then since it was the writer saying so?

He certainly says what he thinks most of the time. This can be
considered a trait.

Run out of arguments and ideas to twist facts, punk?

Yep I agree, and have wriiten several posts on Del Potro's choice at
that time.
I even said that he was a bit dumb, and explained why, to me, he did
stupid choice.
Basically, I think (more & more) than JMDP will have more chances to
play YEC than DCFinal again.

Share & Enjoy,

You do realize he's often asked about other players games? Since
people want to know how he thinks about it and he usually gives them a
straight answer, so he's appreciated for it and so it goes on...

When asked about others he should start talking about his own life? I
just wonder what the haters would say if he'd done that. BTW what did
he say that was 'bad' in any way? And who's the judge about what's
bad?

Your principle of real class consisting of talk about others in a good
way exclusively (did Lendl do that?) would allow anyone to do
anything and never be criticized. Bring on censorship, dictatorship,
fascism, total chaos etc.

Also, most people consider Federer talks about other the way he sees
it, right or wrong. Honesty doesn't allow kissing ass.

I didn't like Fed's comments about Murray after last year's Dubai and
the "crushed him" thing about
Roddick, but honestly I don't see any bad intention in this particular
example.

I think he feels less threatened by DelPo than Rafa/Murray/Djoke so
has no need to get some dig in at him.

If DelPo wins the match, that will change in a hurry!

Its not under contract for Whipser to be an asshole. But he is,
right.

If you have real class, you talk about your life and talk about others
in a good way.

He need not but those are just two small tournaments. Del Potro is
playing well, so he can encourage him by saying good things about him.
I never saw Steffi Graf denouncing any upcoming players. She told a
lot of good things when Hingis was coming up.

Saying he hasnt won anything worth is not really being honest. Its

Your hatred for Federer seriously clouds your thinking. Why does
Federer have to make compliments to his opponents anyway do you think?
Is it in a contract somewhere that you saw?

You are (once more) twisting his words and filling in the intentions
of Federer's comments with your own imagination, which BTW, isn't very
impressive but very predictable.

No, it's your fedfuckery that prevents you from seeing straight and
being fair here.

Even the writer acknowledged that "Federer praised Del Potro while
throwing in a caveat"

Whether you want to admit this to yourself it's a fact that Federer is a
master of backhanded comliments, for this we have had more than enough
proof lately.

Go fuck yourself btw.

How is he supposed to shut up when asked about his fellow players?
Should he just lie, make up stories to please people who liked to be
lied to? Go on record about how he will be lucky to win his next
match?

Be happy he's honest. He clearly has no problem being a favourite so
he doesn't have to lie about his chances.

Backstabbing? What are you talking about? What he said is simply what
happened. Why should he praise Del Potro in to high heavens? How does
honesty - saying what you think - make you a backstabber? FYI
backstabbing is when you pretend to like or help someone when he's
around, then sabotage or conspire against him/her when he/she is
defenceless or unaware.

He does the exact opposite of that by giving his honest opinion. Not
inflating JM's ego before playing him or setting him up for a fall.
You would respect that if you had any honesty and/or intelligence.

Perhaps I used a wrong word backstabbing...although I believe it's not
far off.

You are seriously wrong if you consider comments such as It will be
interesting to play Del Potro who has won some tournaments that were
worth nothing a compliment.

In this case I guess you would consider "honesty" and a compliment such
a comment as "That's a lovely dress but it shows that your breasts are
too small"

How bitchy.

Why do you react so badly to some raw evidence?
Don't tell me Del Potro won anything huge, a MS.
Del Potro displayed poorly at the DC final.
Maybe the kid is somewhat still weak on nerves for big occasions.
Compared to Murray, Del Potro is (far) behind...
And looked what just happened to Murray :-)

Having the fave from bookmakers is pretty much as usefull as a blind
art/painting expert...
Or a biased tier1 analyst.

And please stop telling non-sense.
Learn the definition of stabbing in the back, you'll see it's nowhere
near Federer's attitude.
Federer said thing right in the eyes (and mics) of journalists (and in
three different languages), not exactly a back stabber.
Federer does not tell them that "this words are the records, okay?"


Share & Enjoy,
Manolo


PS: what is a Public Ennemy's song that had the therefor famous sample
"don't believe the hype!" ?

Del Potro displayed poorly at the DC final due to lack of rest - kid should
have not gone to Shanghai, but as I posted back then, it can't be easy for a
kid just starting to make it to skip YEC the first time he qualifies for it...

I agree, Fed is being an ass these days. I like Federer, but wish he
shuts the fuck up.

I guess I don't see it. Sounds pretty factual and complimentary to me.

Can't this fucking dork named Federer make a single compliment without
being a back stabber at the same time?

"Federer praised Del Potro while throwing in a caveat.

"I mean, he's had a great run after Wimbledon," he said. "I think he won
four tournaments in a row, two on clay and two on hard court. Yeah, kind
of out of the blue. They were not the biggest tournaments in the world,
but still, he was able to dominate some good players. It's going to be
an interesting match for me." "
