And the award for best stereotypical comment from a Federer fan goes to.... TempDeb from Reddit.com/r/tennis
I don't know how this is going to come across, but I completely expected this. I had an inkling that Murray was going to win this the moment Federer beat del Potro. Because I honestly think something in Federer wanted Murray to win this.
Considering the amount of pressure Murray had in Wimbledon, and how Federer's career is already established. I honestly feel like it was Federer's match to throw, and he had more than enough reason to throw it, putting aside fixed matching in the background.
I know its a real insult to an athlete's integrity, but look at the way Fed played today.
Someone questioned something similar on the football forum I'm on. He was shot down by tonnes of people though (the support for Murray has risen dramatically this week.. obviously representing GB has played it's part) and then admitted he doesn't follow tennis or understand it. There's a surprise.
Anyone who suggests that really need their heads checked.
Been a lot of people watching Murray this week who never normally watch him - the sort of people who only see Wimbledon, treat the "anti-English" thing as gospel and state their opinions like fact. And he's clearly gone up in their esteem after his performances. Maybe this "bottler" and "will never be good enough" nonsense will be done with once and for all.
Well, we can dream I guess.
