Found this piece I wrote when Federer won the French in 09. At the time, I didn't despise the man's character the way I do now. I do remember thinking how lucky he was, though, and that's the thrust of the article.
LAST MAN AT THE RAFFLE
Brilliant, Nigel! So Fed comes out with this - “Now the question is: Am I the greatest of all time?
We don’t know, but I definitely have many things going for me because I’ve finally won all four Grand Slams, and I’m particularly happy reaching Pete’s 14.” - and that isn't arrogance?
What a dummkopf! Can't tell the difference between assassination and assignation.
Horrible wrong. Can't also use adverbs properly.
In fairness, I don't think English is AK's first language - not that that in any way excuses what he says!
BRAVO!!! Thank you so much for writing this article, you totally filled in the gaps for me and now I found many of the missing pieces to the puzzle called "Fedevil and his countless crimes against humility".
I always said to everyone who was willing to hear (and also some that weren't) that this guy is an arrogant, hypocritical guy and I feel vindicated thanks to you and your AMAZING article! You exposed the guy for what he really is and told the simply undeniable true story.P.S. Do you like my nickname for him, Fedevil?
Love it! That deserves to be added to the list.
