This rant has been building for months now and one of P.Mac's comments and Federer's own actions have pushed me over the edge.
I AM SICK OF ROGER FEDERER AND THE NONSENSE!!!!
If I was a player on the tour I would throw everything I had including the kitchen sink at that man. Because of Tommy Haas injury, he had to pull out and Federer got a five day break. FIVE DAYS!! And then what did that pompous man do?
He stayed in his hotel.
Does the above seem a bit...well empty? Well yes it did. And why? Because out of the FIVE days FOUR of those days he didnt hit once. Yes, that is right. He didn't practice once. Why is no one else having a connipition? If I was a player and I heard of that, I would explode. Why? In a sport that relies heavily on how much you practice, this man takes four days off and shows what he thinks of you all. That is how lightly he thinks of you; that he can be stiff, out of practice, and not in his top form and he can mow you down in three sets.
Let me repeat: THAT IS HOW LIGHTLY HE THINKS OF YOU!
If I was a player on the men's tour, especially Ferrero, I would play to win. I would force it to 5 sets and then have the final set score be 25 to 27. And that is only if you are determined to lose. Whoever is Federer's next round opponent, if you insist on losing, make it another 5 set match but this time let the score be 35 to 37. And then, since it seems, only Nadal and Canas have the balls to take it to him, when Nadal plays Federer, he can finish Federer for you all.
But think about it. Federer has been strutting around for over a year now. And why, because you "men" don't have any guts. You go all out against each other and then....oh its Federer...we can't win. Since WHEN in any ERA was it ALRIGHT for your goal to win a SET? A SET! WHAT?! What you all need to do is grow some back bone and play him. And this better start with Ferrero! You show that man what he gets for thinking you are a chump! Make him run around the court, he doesn't like to get sweaty and then gets annoyed, and once he gets annoyed his winners become errors, and once he starts making errors the match is over.
I WANT SOME REAL TENNIS NOW!!!!
