Nope, sport is fine but fans do suck. Fans hate and love too much and it
often has little to do with sport. I never understood why people would want
to undergo such emotional highs and lows without possibility of exerting any
control over outcomes. It must be some form of masochism.

The player who plays better, or the better player? :-)

Federer said the better player doesn't always win the 5th set.

Looks like he just can't help himself?

Actually, I think tennis' fairness index is pretty good. It isn't as easy to
lose a whole match in a couple of blinks in tennis as it is in soccer or
rugby, for example. The player who plays better usually wins (hint hint).

No, there are great players, and then
there is the best player.

Nadal is the best player at the moment.

Get over it!

You'll learn to take things more in stride. There is no such thing as fair.
However once you accept that you will be able to deal with life's blows a
bit easier.
