I see PseudoFed has also rewritten Kipling's poem:

Priceless, absolutely priceless!

Only just discovered Fed had the trainer AND the doctor out for a back injury.  I'm trying not to laugh though ... poor Fed ... Very Happy

Well here's me, a church-goer, and I nearly died laughing. I'm still trying to work out if it makes me a bad person!

How can the mainstream media not see this?!

I mean, after winning 16 slams, an unbelievable feat, I can understand being arrogant, but the fact that the media crucify Murray's personality, who is one of the most unassuming, humble players out there is baffling! Not only that, but Federer is praised for his 'gentlemanly conduct'.

The disturbing thing for me is that he keeps winning those sportsmanship awards. How on earth can that happen when he says the things he does. I know some would say that sportsmanship applies to what goes on on the court (well even that is dubious with Federer) but doesn't is also apply to how a player conducts themselves in interviews and such, and how they behave towards other players in general?

Honestly, if Andy said even half the stuff that Federer has spouted there would be such an outcry, but Federer gets away with it.

Posted yesterday, but an absolute gem.

Fed or PseudoFed?

"I thought I played great out there today. It was a big occasion for Mikhail. My game suits up well against his. He fought hard but maybe it wasn't enough, and I'm extremely happy to be in the semis at Wimbledon. I think it helps when royalty shows up and other legends of the game see me play. It's inspiring. I'm happy they all came and supported me. Novak has to finish the third set, but I'd love to play Novak next. I don't think I've played him at Wimbledon, so hopefully it wil be a nice match."
It was the real Roger Federer, speaking to BBC TV's Rishi Persad straight after the match

I'm surprised PF didn't pick up on this. I can't help reading it with capital Ms



You really couldn't make it up, could you?

Mind you, I do wonder about him when retirement beckons (please God, soon!). I get the feeling he may well end up not being the nicest person to be around. I mean, what will he do with all that ego and no outlet for it?

It almost makes me feel sorry for Mirka, even if she does drive me bonkers with all the chewing.

priceless. 
Like tj what I find most irritating is the way he gets feted as an ambassador for the game, role model etc and then wins these sportsmanship awards when he's a lousy sportsman.  All this just feeds his eternal smugness.  Viva pseudofed!

You know, it would almost be worth it for Federer if I did!

Never knew about that.

Federer: Throws argument about correct call, shouts at crowd to "shut up" on two different occasions, wears that jacket in front of Roddick after winning, etc.

Murray, Djokovic, Nadal: Not one incident springs to mind of bad sportsmanship. Possible gamesmanship yes.

Yet it is Federer that constantly wins all these sportsmanship awards, and is treated as a god, whilst Murray in particular gets lambasted because his voice is a bit monotone in interviews and he sometimes gets frustrated on court.

What a crazy country we live in.

A performance worthy of McEnroe, but at least Mac never pretended he was perfect.

Some good stuff here too:


It is extremely unusual though to see Fed smashing a racquet - something Djokovic does on a regular basis.

I remember that incident during the USO final and Fed got a warning (and a fine) for using that audible obscenity.  At least Andy has never sworn at the umpire.  In fact he's only ever sworn at himself yet gets pilloried for it.

As for that speech at the AO - Fed should just have said a few words then retired gracefully, instead of which he came back for more!  Nadal's face says it all.  I remember at the time feeling so very sorry for him - his victory was totally ruined.
