I do not think anyone should judge Federer for crying. Ignoring all the
trash talk about what is and what is not a display of masculinity, I thought
it was beautiful to see him cry. He was trying to talk and hang in there but
at a point he just let it go. A man showing how hurt and disappointed he was
for all the world to see. After winning so much he still cares and is not
afraid to be called a wussy. Anyway, none of those who judged him is likely
to know what it means to be on the brink of real greatness and throw it all
away. I guess you should just shut up.

And also mocking others when they are down. If he so emotional he
should understand his opponents feelings and give them more credit.

I don't get the whole "it's just a game so don't cry" thing. We all know that,
for Federer, it's not "just a game". Tennis is his life, and he's just been
dealt a very hard defeat on the path he set out to tread when he was just a
pre-teen boy. Sure, it's more dignified if you hold it until you reach the
locker room, but you get my point.

Federer has no right to cry over his losses. He should be very grateful
for being let run away with it so long. He doesn't deserve as much he
has achieved.

I disagree. Fed showed is he not a REAL man. He is just a spoilt bitch
who cries when things don't go his way.

He also cries when he wins. He is just an emotional guy.

What doesn't make sense is why he surrendered the match so meekly if he cares so
much. He'd won the 4th set, but it was as though that didn't matter because he
didn't believe Nadal would allow him to win the decider.

I agree with you. Feddy is still a great champion.

And a big part of being a great champion is how well
you lose, and how well you win too.

Remember that Feddy cried 4 years ago when he
WON. So is he a wussy if he cries when he wins too?

He's really just less fearful than 99% of the macho
men out there.

You shut up. He didn't throw it away. It was taken from him by
a better man.

How do you know? Of course he wasn't happy of crying in public but at some
point instead of resisting he let go. If really you're afraid of crying in
public, you just hold on. An then again who's weaker? Someone who did not do
shit in his life but never cried in public, like you probably, or someone
who wins 13 slams and does?
