Ask your dog!
Well, I took you at your word and asked him! He thinks I'm a good person [which I'm probably not], but, I am a better person than I might otherwise be, as I do try hard not to disappoint him! He agreed I can be a bit sarcastic sometimes, but not often enough to be called 'continual'! While he did remind me  that sarcasm is the lowest form of wit, he does understand why, on certain occasions, I just can't help myself as I am 'only human' after all! [I think he takes a certain delight in reminding me of this]! He thinks that when someone [who I don't even know], tries to tell me who I should 'respect' or not, is one of those times. He reminded me that respect is a very 'personal' thing which has to be earned, usually in ways other than being good at a game [any game], such as showing a generosity of spirit towards others! He says that 'admiration' is an entirely different thing [he himself is full of admiration for Fed's tennis], but his 'smugness' puts him off liking the man. He thinks that taking 'pride' in a job well done is understandable, but, smugness is akin to gloating which is a most unattractive trait in a human, as it shows both disrespect to his opponent, as well as a 'meanness' of spirit. He thinks that Fed can 'more than afford' to be generous in victory and suggests he should perhaps take a leaf out of Andy's book [or Rafa's]! Oh, he knows that Fed usually has something nice to say about his 'beaten' opponent in post match interviews, but then he often spoils it all by sneaking in the odd snide remark! This so angers my dog, that he says he hopes Feds shoelaces do come undone today, so that he might trip up and fall flat on his smug face! [I think that's a tad harsh myself]! However, even though he is a Border Collie who are known to be the most intelligent of their 'kind', he really is a most exceptional dog! I have personally known hundreds [several of which shared my home], but, I've yet to meet another as smart as he, [apart from maybe his mother]! He's certainly the only telepath I've ever met, [canine or otherwise], although an incident this very morning makes me think that perhaps our own Aileen could well be developing this admirable talent! Hmmm...... Think

Not guilty Caz. When I said a cuddle like you I meant a cuddle!!   blush
I just hope he's had a really good rest.  Put his feet up (literally) and slept off all those pain-killers.

Oh and what a wise dog Caz.  Perhaps you should introduce him to Maggie May.

There was no shame in the way Andy performed against Nadal. Andy is thankfully also happy with his performance; and that was my BIG worry that we might see him 'slump' like he did in other defeats. I just wish he would employ a full time coach, but he just seems to be on of those players who 'wont be told' by anyone else. But look what the input from their coaches have done for the top (3) players. I just hope that Andy does rest his ankle before Wimbledon. Good luck Braveheart; we all love you. wink kiss:

Caz, what a wonderful and intelligent dog you have to be able to fully understand Mr Federer. Perhaps after his eventual passing you can donate his brain to an appropriate canine medical centre.

Come on Nadal!

Caz,
my nephew's Border Collie -- Angus --, who has been looking over my shoulder whilst I have been reading your post, has asked me to pass this message on to your dog:

Woof! Woof woof woof. Woof woof. Woof woof woof woof.

      Woof. Woof woof. Woof.Woof woof. (and 12 rapid tail wags)

I couldn't agree more!

Colliies are a favourite of mine too.  A friend once had a Shetland - beautiful dog and highly intelligent ... except that she lived on a farm and a cow only had to look at him and he was a speck on the horizon!

So what was your dog's take on Fed in the final then, Caz?  My French is a bit ropey but I seemed to get the drift that Roger was praising Nadal and then, in his own inimitable fashion, giving himself a big pat on the back.  Humility is not his middle name!

Btw I see that Fed is drawn against Lleyton Hewitt in his first match at his "own" tournament in Halle, the player who beat him in last year's final!

I turned back to ES for the ceremony Aileen and Greg R was translating and you sum it up very well.   And then he and Virginia W drone on about what a wonderful ambassador for the sport he is.   yawn

Sorry, Aileen, what do you expect. Remember he is Swiss and his arrogance is a well developed attitude amongst his countrymen.

Ruthie, Wade wasn't alone in bowing before the throne of Frauderer. If you had been watching the final on BBC, Andrew Castle was also doing a magnificent brown a**e job.

On one particular occasion, Castle drooled over Federer's winning 2 games in a row, but had not made any previous reference to Nadal's winning 7 consecutive games. This is only one example that springs to mind. In other cases when Fed made a superb point, Castle screamed "Magnificent".

When will BBC realise that both Andrew Castle and John Lloyd are well past their sell-by date. However, in all fairness to Lloyd, I felt that his commentaries well calm and intelligent. Probably because our Andy was not playing.

Thank you for your kind words OSS! Yes, I am rather proud of him and feel lucky to have him. We always said our 'lucky star' must have been in the sky the day we rescued his mother, when she was 10 weeks old. I've had my own beautiful boy since the moment he was born [under our stairs] and have promised him that I will never leave his side, so I'm afraid donating any part of him would be out of the question. It was a great idea though! Very Happy

He-he ... Fed pulled out of Halle yesterday afternoon citing fatigue and a sore groin - and the organisers are furious at this last-minute withdrawal claiming the WHOLE tournament revolves round his turning up - in fact they've even named the stadium after him - saying that they were completely unaware of any injury concerns.  Funny how they didn't object to him pulling out the year he won the FO, but as he got beaten in last year's final there could it be that his fragile ego can't handle the prospect of another defeat at "his" tournament?
