I just typed that in Google and got "Roger Federer Quotes-Tennis-X.com" as my first link and this as my second. But, whatever. I didn't know this would appear in the list so was really happy when I saw it. Very Happy

Well, I am disappointed. I am also a Murray fan. In fact if Roger wasn't playing right now, he would be my favorite. I have always tried to perceive everything that big sports names say from these four angles: 1) His/her view, 2) His/her's opponent's view, 3) The fans of said sports view, 4) Keep in mind context. I believe the fourth one is really the most important, and I will give you an example. When you argue that Roger expected to win the '09 marathon against Andy Roddick you forget a couple things. 1) He is in a contract with Nike, who probably made him wear it as a part of the deal. 2) He didn't seem altogether excited about talking about it during the interview. "But that is all speculation!" you say, and I would argue that assuming he was trying to be arrogant is speculation as well.

Apart from this I do not deny that Roger said everything you have in your post, but I disregard many of them for being brutally ripped out of context and intention. I enjoyed seeing some support for And Murray in here but it well disguised behind a camouflage of biased hate for Roger. I also congratulate you as one of the first people to make me question my stance on Federer's attitude for 1 second. But be reassured, I did not enjoy this most vitriolic-bile.*

*Thanks for that (1st paragraph under Vitriol)

I just thought it was pretty stupid comparison, whatever.

I'd agree if he was talking about their games, but otherwise it doesn't bother me.

Was he referring to their personalities or their game?  If the former, back then, I wouldn't mind because Tim is ever so slightly posh like a wine and Muzza was fizzy and unpredictable.
You'd have to ask him that.  I just thought it was pretty stupid comparison, whatever.

I went off Castle the first time Andy played Tim and he compared them like a fine wine and an alchopop.

I went off Castle when:

c) I wrote a script for a holiday company that he was doing the voiceover for. I got £300; he got a villa on Barbados.
B*stard. If you'd told me earlier, I'd have egged his windows for you.

I went off Castle when:

a) He made the final of the British Championships in 1986 and, knowing he was on telly, put up a card on his chair protesting against the poll tax.

b) He groped Claire Nasir's bum on live TV.

c) I wrote a script for a holiday company that he was doing the voiceover for. I got £300; he got a villa on Barbados.
You kept c quiet over the last few hours.

Me either.  Met him twice and he seemed like a good bloke.
I went off Castle the first time Andy played Tim and he compared them like a fine wine and an alchopop.  Guess who was who?  I thought that comment was outrageous - and not because I was ever not a Henman fan.  I always rooted for him whenever he played (except against Andy. Very Happy)

I've never understood the beef with Castle.
