At the net Benneteau Asked Roger for his shirt. Roger dedicated the shirt to Benneteau and wrote:

For Benneteau,
The Crazy Game

"Match de dingo" which is a colloquialism of "Match de dingue" and means "Crazy match".

Seriously classy Roger.

The other day Rafa also picked up Rosol's racket and asked if he could have it.

Wow Bennetau.. He's done everything except spread eagle for Roger.. Maybe if he didn't mentally blow the match when being up 2 sets Roger would be asking him for his autograph? ROFL

What a clown!!!

Nah. It's the opposite when it comes to the GOAT. It's such an honor for Bennetteau to have Roger's sweaty shirt. I'm sure it smells like a cologne-*

Am I missing something? Is Benneteau not displaying an absolute losers mentality?

Perhaps tennis has gone completely soft, and may explain why so many players have just not stepped up and challenged the top 3 players.

Do footballers sign eachothers shirts? Or just exchange shirts after a match?

Benneteau is an opponent, not a star struck fan. We needs warriors in top level tennis, not star struck fans who moonlight as tennis players.

Oh well, seems as though many tennis warehouse posters are as soft as some of these so called professional players! Benneteau should be annoyed he lost a match and a great opportunity to make a name for himself after being two sets up! Well at least he got a signed shirt for his efforts. ;-)

after a fight, MMA fighters embrace and go out for beers. Maybe they're not "warrior" enough for you? Team sports and individual sports cannot be compared. There is a psychological reason for continuing beef between sporting clubs that extends past the players to the fans. In individual sports the beef is before and during competition, but after it’s normal to show a level of respect that can only be shared between two true warriors. I’m sure this is something you’ll never understand or experience in your life.

Two totally different things. This is not respect, more of a scenario that Benneteau doesn't feel he deserves to be on the same court. I assume had Federer lost, he would not be asking for Benneteau's signed shirt.

What truly counts is a player's performance during the match itself, not what he does before or after.

As far as I'm concerned, anyone who actually watched the match and still doesn't realize Benneteau gave it his all on court:

1) Doesn't truly understand the game and strengths and limitations of players who faced off in this match.

2) Has a personal bias against Fed and has an issue with him being still in the tourney.

The guy entered the match believing he can win and he played like it (his attitude toward the match reflected in his play, he completely bossed Fed around the court), if he truly believed he doesn't deserve being on the same court with Fed that kind of performance would have simply been impossible.

No he is not arrogant. You are simply displaying your lack of knowledge of the French language and details about Benneteau.

It says pour Bennet...

pour means "for". Bennet is the nickname all the French speaking players call Benneteau.

Federer is showing not only his ability to speak different languages but to also write them.
