When I see Federer play/win, I feel like he's just there to chase the records.
Whenever he wins a GS, it's like 'just 7 more to go', instead of being happy about the fact that he won te tournament itself.

Maybe I'm totally wrong on this, but that's what it seems to me!

What's so wrong with Fed chasing the record? At this point he has nothing more to prove. So what, if he wants to cement his place in the record books?

There is no way in my view, That you can play just for the future or to break records. You play in the moment for every point, every ball...That is specially the case with Roger, who seems to have great presence in evert shot.

I don't think he's "just" playing for the records. That would be ridiculous. Has he ever said, "7 more to go?" No. In fact, he says specifically that it's not his main motivation. You can't get ahead of yourself when you're playing. You have to play in the moment or you'll lose for sure.

It's not like when Sampras was at 12 slams. You knew he wanted to break the record. Federer is only at 7. He has too far to go to just be playing for the record. He plays because he loves the game.

The good, but not great competition are too lazy to improve themselves adequately. The youngest players (Berdych, Gasquet, Baghdatis) aren't talented enough. Even a veteran like Santoro is greater than Monfils.

Roddick and Safin can't care less. They used injury excuses to avoid Federer. Consequently, Federer plays poorly and wins.

Federer knows he'll win at least as many slams as Sampras. Explains why he was nonchalant at the Australian Open final. He casually pushed the ball out when he was down 0-2, break point down.

Playing only for the GS record? Have you seen Roger's win/loss record for the past year? I never saw Pete go an entire year, dropping only 4 matches. The guy brings it at each and every tournament.

Sampras didn't try to break every serve and to win every match. He isn't that selfish. Federer is only capable of being greedy. Nothing else is interesting about him.

lol @ devila.

Federer is a tennis player. He isn't the devil. There are many people who I abhor in the world, but most of them are murderers or criminals of some sort

Lighten up dude :)

Oh, the utter slobbering idiocy of the troll. I feel bad for having endured you this long. Welcome to my Ignore List.

Devila, I salute you for being an equal opportunity hater.

Keep up the good work in keeping all the superstars' feet stuck firmly to the ground. With fans like yourself, I don't think Federer will ever feel too magnificent.

First of all, chasing records means winning matches. So I don't think its a big deal the guy wants to win. Heaven forbid...

Second, of course he is out there because he loves the game. Did you not see that ceremony the other day when he was absouletely taken by the moment and his emotions practically erupted. Damn! Also, Roger himself said that he continued his career not winning another match again, he would still play and he would still love the game and look back on his career as a success, not because he won so many titles, but because he was given the opportunity to compete.

I'm wondering why a tennis player or any athlete would not try to win every time he or she stepped onto the court. The possibility staggers the mind.


Don't hate, congratulate.

So what should he do to meet your "expectations"? Intentionally lose a few matches? Manipulate his record so that it's not "above the pack"? EVERY pro out there WISHES he could win as consistantly as RF, and they all TRY-he just happens to be the only one at the moment who is capable at succeeding. There are always a-holes out there ready to knock the champs from their pegs for the ONLY reason that they are champs. Yours is the comment of a perpetual loser. A fat slob of a Joe Sixpack who wants to see "HIS" heros lose as much as he does.
