Quite honestly I could watch Federer play for hours on end. He's turned the sport into an art form. I suppose it's just too much to expect that humility and "niceness" automatically form part of the package
Can you? I can't even get past his face let alone watch anything else. The only time I watch him when he is up against a good player and I expect an upset. lol.
I find his game very straight forward and predictable. Yes, his shots are beautiful and carefully orchestrated, but 90% of the time, I can tell which way they are heading or where they are about to land. It has become utterly predictable for me over the years and that's with minimum watching.
I think the worst of it all, for me anyway, is the fact that my BF is an ardent Fed lover (understatement). I often want to tell him that there’s a life before, during or after and to get one. But of course, I don’t mean to hurt his feelings so I play nice but it’s the hardest thing I’ve ever done in my life (tennis-wise of course). It sounds silly but there’s a good chance we may fall out in the future because of this. He’s okay with Andy thankfully or pretends so, but clearly I am not. I guess I can try and be a better person but it’s just that Fed makes it so hard for me. As I said, I can’t even get past his face…
