Dude... 2nd round of a Masters event. It's not THAT big of a deal. Especially if you have half a clue and know that Federer is at his WORST at Paris indoors!

No, he was crying because he realised his parking ticket had expired.

and yet Benneteau doesn't get slammed for crying like a sissy, but Fed does after crying in AO after losing the FINAL to Rafa for 3rd straight time!

I read somewhere that Bennetteau said: "I've beat Federer,now I can finally retire". He's probably not retiring but you can tell it meant a lot to him.

He defeated a #1 for the first time in his career, in front of his homecrowd, after losing the first set. For a guy never ranked higher than #33, YES, it is THAT big of a deal.

I think doing it in France made it better.

^^This, it was a great moment for him, and a great moment for the French fans.

A winning against the #1 player in the world is a win no matter how he's playing...It's probably one of the greatest feats he'll ever accomplish in his career.

so... how many times have you reached the third round of a ATP masters in your hometown while beating the number one player in the atp rankings who happens to be a GOAT contender?

Actually, his knee was really bleeding. I think it scrapped the floor too hard when he celebrated his win.

At least he didn't do the 'french thing' and run away, he faced his fears. And won

Very suprising considering he was french!!

But of course against sissy mentalmidget Federer even the French can face their fears and not run away as their genes compell them.

Great win for the Frenchman. That was like his 'career match' from the way he was playing. He went for broke on a lot of shots, and it paid off.:)

i agree here
but also , this is a win agains arguably the GOAT!!!!,,, this win is something unthinkable for most pros.., and to do it while he is still relatively well enough to be finalist in all the tournaments he enters
i dont blame the guy from being extra happy for this win,, i know i would be signing authographs until my hands hurt if that ever happened to me :-)

get a win over federer is tough so it is a great time to cry since he played his best to beat him.

Hmm... so a 2nd tier tennis player cried because of the biggest win of his career. I hope he was happy, and not sympathy tears for Fed losing.

He should have celebrated like a REAL man.... Get drunk, get some hookers, do some big game hunting.... yeah... that's is... LOL

He didn't cry at a trophy presentation ceremony and spoil his opponent's moment. Move on!

Crying after you win is acceptable. Crying when you are standing with the winner, who is supposed to be enjoying his FIRST ever australian open title, and has to sit there and feel bad for you and comfort you is RUDE.

He defeated the possible GOAT while he was still at number 1. He can tell his grandkids. It's nice I think

How is it rude? Roger didnt go there with the intent of crying.:-?
It happened and he was sorry for it as he said several times in his interviews later.
He had all the pressure on his shoulders to win that match and it came crashing down sooner than he expected it to.
How is that rude?
Wow..you have some very high standards..time to get off your moral high horse.

There's no shame in crying after an amazing feat like that. Heck, if I beat Federer I'd probably soil myself.

Yes, very emotional. He deserves to let it out.

Agreed, absolutely.

Yeah, and additionally he'll probably be set for life in terms of job opportunities in the broadcasting field, or tennis management, or with possible coaching/consulting gigs, etc. Tons of cred earned today. Demons faced. Big day for the Benneteau family.

he did nothing of that sort after wimbledon 2008. please refrain from making up BS. If you wanna play that game, we can also include how your boy Rafa cried like a little b@&#h on Uncle Toni's shoulder after losing Wimbledon 2007. :lol:

dang dude, let the man have his moment of glory. He beat the number 1 player in front of his home crowd, something he wont do again, and got a way bigger check, etc, etc, etc. Now if that was u, with all the emotions, flashbacks of training, and the screaming crowd, u would tell me u would shoe no emotion???:shock:
