Why is Fraudy playing these lesser tournaments all of a sudden? Is he desperate to keep his ranking up now that he knows on Slam performances for it - or is it a farewell tour to all his old favourite tournaments? Think


Thinks he might get some wins, or even a trophy....  lmao

Aww i think a certain Swiss tennis player is in denial


http://www.espn.co.uk/tennis/sport/story/226185.html#

Is anyone buying this?


"There comes a time when the ranking is not so important. Quite honestly, I don't even know exactly what my current ranking. 4th? 5th? 3rd? It doesn't matter to me so much."

Just when i thought my opinion of him couldn't get any lower, he now wants the world to believe that he is unaware of his current ranking, what an odious man he is, he sounds like a petulant child right now refusing to admit it's over, heck all tennis players should just let him win a slam, maybe then he will think he has gone out at the top like his buddy Sampras.
  Rolling Eyes  Smacks of desperation to me......He's dead, but he won't lie down! lmao Thanks Gnome!

Wow, just when you think he can't stoop any lower, he actually does! Can't remember his ranking, ha!

I hope he dries his feet properly after all that paddling in that river in Egypt!

He's finished and he knows it. Why not retire with the grace of a former champion. That would be the thing to do and keep his dignity. This would allow him to retire with a semblance of being the champion he was. If he goes on he will look like fool who does't know he is past it.

Fame and success are like drugs;once you've had them you can't do without them. When one is on the way up one should always treat people the way you'd like to be treated on the way down
 Federer thinks one more tournament will put things right for him and right now I wouldnt bet that it won't
 When tournament organisers stop sending him offers to take part he'll realise its all over and retire .

You need to sign into Facebook, Caz.  Anyway here it is -

"So Federer doesn't know what his current ranking is, and he doesn't care either? For any player to say that just has to be totally amazing! He should stop adopting the ostrich position, face up to reality, and retire gracefully at the end of the season. His glory days are over and his body is packing in, something which is only going to hinder and frustrate him all the more, especially as tennis is more physical now than it was even a few years ago. Forget the new, bigger-headed and more powerful racquet, that isn't going to bring back his youthfulness and the superb tennis skills he once had, but which nowadays are showing signs of decline.

The harsh truth is that he's going to go on losing to lower-ranked players because the GOAT aura has gone, leaving him very vulnerable. He's no longer a player to be feared, and these guys will now go on court against him full of belief that they can beat him.

If Federer really does want to continue playing at a competitive level, then he should join the less stressful Champions Tour and might even find that he enjoys his tennis all the more."

It might not draw any, but the Bleacher Report notifies you if you get a response.   The last time I made a similar, but very fair, comment after another BR article I got two responses, one from somebody who agreed with me, and another who didn't, saying that people like me drove him nuts!
