It was a great match and Nalbandian had to hit some amazing shots to win it, but then Fed came back but it wasn't enough in the end. goodjob

Frown I've always thought Rog was one of the nicest people on the tour and not at all "full of himself"

I know Andy was very impressed with the way he came and talked to him in the locker room, when most players ignore rookies.

 confused  Where does he get this hatred from? He's probably the best player ever. I just dont understand it.

 no

Now if you were talking of Safin and Coria, I'd be nodding furiously in agreement.

I agree, one of the reasons that I don't like Fed is that in a lot of his interviews he acts as if its no big deal and that he was expected to win the tournament.  Even if he is the world no 1 he doesn't have to mention it in every interview he does. Plus he beat Andy.ranting

I agree with you Tally, he seems to be very nice indeed. Andy seemed to be impressed at how well Fed treated him. Plus Fed has the same bday as me so i could never hate him yahooo

Well, I don't understand why peopl pullhair e like Fed and why he was named the most sexy man on earth, Grrrr.
Sexy??? Hrbaty in his shirt with the holes is more sexy than Fed.  :P
But I agree with Josh, he always says he will win the tournament, it's not because it's true, you should say it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
And when they ask him who the favourits are for the tournament, he will always say 'ME' first.
Sorry, I just can't stand the guy... Maybe it's me because a lot of people seem to like him.

Very different opinions there!  :uhm:

Well.. me personally.. i think Roger might aswell be one of the biggest men in tennis history. Yes - McEnroe, Borg and all those other players have definitly gone down in history.. but this guy is amazing. Every time i watch him play he's got this energy and determination that i can't seem to find in any other player. Although im not a Federer fan by far (i don't even know why im not).. but i really think he's an amazing player. His skill, talent and on-court manipulation is extreme. I can't see these exact qualities in anyone like Roddick.. Nadal.. etc.
His backhand is unrepeatable, and some of his ground strokes.  shocking A legend in one word.

But i think everyone is just sick of Roger's "high status". He wins nearly everything and that's why people start to dislike him. He's a very confident man.. who likes to come top in what he's best at. I don't think it's supposed to come as being stuck up.. or anything else. He's just confident in demolishing the opposition.. although i think he's a bit cheeky sometimes! :P

As for the sexiest man of the year.. well his looks have DEFINITLY improved!  goodjob Some photos of him in a suit.. phwaoorr!

I really like Roger's personality from seeing him on camera. I don't think there is a problem with mentioning you're expected to win, he is one of the greatest players ever, I'd probably be a little arrogant if I was him. That said, I wanted Nalbandian to win, we all like an underdog Smile

Oh and about him being "sexy", coming from a straight guy, I really do think he is the best looking player on tour.

You want him to lie and say it's not him? He is being honest, he is the favourite! Can you imagine if he said everytime, "Well I think Nadal is favourite, I might have good chance though" I'd totally hate him for being modest like that unless he said Andy was favourite  Wink

Well, I suppose there is nothing wrong with being confident but its when it borders on being cocky that I don't like him.  Don't know much, but isn't Nadal better looking than him?? :uhm:

 Think Really?  Whistle
In a strange way.. i agree. He has the classical Swiss gentelman look that no one can resist - what ever type preferance. Although im so glad Roger has got rid of that ponytail.
Players like Nadal and Roddick.. to some they are sex icons - but to others they see nothing at all. Roger's got a nice medium. And his girlfriend is also a very nice woman.. although i would have thought Roger would go for someone a bit more pretty  :-$
