I'm starting to dislike Federer

Quote

Just discovered this thread.  Glad to see I'm not the only one who finds Federer insufferably arrogant.  Of course his tennis is wonderful but I'm so fed up with all this 'the great man' stuff. And how does he manage to keep winning the award for sportsmanship I wonder, given how the mask slipped when he wasn't doing so well. Between the two, I'm definitely supporting Rafa for RG.

And just think we wouldnt all be on here if andy was as smug as him.....food for thought. Brits and many nations love humility something he has never posessed!!!!

Ungracious in defeat, an arrogant twat in victory.

A remarkable player, IMO the greatest of all time, but my god, I feel more and more compelled to detest him as time goes on.

Just found this thread.  My sentiments exactly. Good posting!

Really peed off with Roger today. He said after his win in Estoril yesterday that he was the big fave for RG, as he was defending champion, bla bla bla. Well, Rafa was defending champ four times and he never once said that he was the big fave going in. I really hope Roger and Rafa meet each other in the semi and Rafa prevails. That'll show him.
I'd prefer them to meet in the final and that Rafa totally grinds Roger into the red dirt.  After Andy my support has always been for Rafa, and I reckon Andy showed Roger the meaing of humility at the AO, whilst all Rog could do was make a patronising joke about the British ("150,000 years ...").  Even his praise for Andy sounded hollow.

Aileen, he never has praise for anyone other than himself. He never even mentioned Rafa in his RG "thoughts" which is beyond insulting. I also hope Rafa wins Madrid.

It's so nice to have a Fed-venting thread on here. So refreshing.

I'll second that. Can't stand the Frauderer.

I thought Nadal was not going to Madrid?

The Frauderer - never heard than one before. Have to remember that. Good one!

Yup he is. Confirmed a few days ago. Didn't think for one minute he wouldn't be going - once he withdrew from Barcelona. Spain would never forgive him.

Oh great stuff!!  I saw he was listed to play, but there had been lots of rumblings about him not going.

Yes there were but I'm glad he's going to be there and hopefully kick some butt. Kick some Swiss butt to be precise.

I just love to watch the top players compete and follow several - naturally Nadal is one of them.  Fingers crossed for him.

Big lads..... trust me....  Wink Seriously, I used to really admire Federer, until his humility kind of went out the window.  It's not attractive quality.  no  Especially for someone who has little to prove.
