I must be a masochist but I just watched the highlights again. This match turned on just a couple of points - Andy was incredibly close and matched him all the way - I don't understand where all this Federer adulation is coming from - couple of shots and Andy would have won. Federer has not said at any point that Andy played well in the final and that he gave him a run for his money - all he ever says is that he, Federer is brilliant and Andy will win a slam one day. He is UNBELIEVABLY arrogant. He said "amazing though it may seem I once played on court 25 although even then I was a crowdpleaser " He says that he enjoys incredible support wherever he goes and that he has played fantastic, etc etc drone on and on about how great he is. There is not a humble bone in his body and there are plenty of clips on youtube of him losing the rag and shouting at umpires and ballboys when it doesnt go his way. He was crap in the first set on Sunday, really poor and just got lucky when the rain came on.
um he didn't mean it that way ! He later said again andy will several slams not just one . Like i said he seems to say the wrong thing at the wrong time but i don't think he is bad person inside . Maybe you view him that way because you 'want him that way" so you can downplay his accomplishments .
who hasn't been mean to umpires and ballboys from time to time ? he is a human being and he is not perfect so stop trying to hold him to perefction and then saying andy is a "saint" etc. They all have EMOTIONS it happens . If you hate him just say you hate him but dont try to make him sound like the only bad guy .
jeesh people are so jealous of others .
