    The article is pretty huge but a treat for Federer fans nonetheless. :D
    The quotes are great.Really good stuff.

    http://yourvolleyssuck.wordpress.com/roger-federer-is-not-a-******/


    Testimonials:

    Quotes from Roger’s colleagues. While some may say that this is the result of the Federer PR machine at work, I doubt they have this much sway over these many people. Maria Sharapova is a good example of how having a “machine” won’t keep other players from running their mouths. I’d also point out that these people are the ones who see Federer 24/7 rather than just reading his pressers or watching him on tv. But what do they know, right?




    More to come...

    Enjoy guys.
    And again-no trash-talking,no trolling,no flamewars .If you dont have something good to contribute dont post.
    Edit-Sorry for the typo in the title..its 'one'.

    A note by the writer after this quote-
    I bet people will twist this guy’s words and say “OMG, ROGER WAS MOCKING A CRIPPLE ( :lol:)

    Also, after Blake came back from his neck injury in 2004, he played against Roger in the 2006 Indian Wells final and he mentioned that Roger was the only person on the tour who had called him up to see how he was


    I'm not including the whole thing btw-Its too big.just most of quotes and some parts I thought that stood out.

    Thats it for the quotes.The writer later goes on to talk about the Pizza parties Roger throws for ball boys in Basel every year. :D

    He then takes up the Tokyo blog Roger wrote in 2006.Hilarious and worth reading just in case you havent read.You can find it on RF.com..
    Those who havent read are in for a really fun reading time..

    I'll post some interesting parts of the blog

    :lol: :lol:

    How arrogant of Federer to have these people quote about him

    I hope nobody minds me asking a question about this thread, but it this meant to be objective?
    I mean, i dont wish to be offensive but the op seeks to prohibit any difference of opinion by requesting no negative comments.


    End of transmission.

    Well i cant help but notice one or two inconsistancies between the quotes posted and some of his on court behavior.
    Again. I dont wish to cause offence, i am just trying to bring some objectivity to the thread.

    His overall on court behaviour is better than any of the current top guys..I wouldnt pass a judgement based on one or two incidents( one in which he was partly right.).He's one of the fairest guys on the ATP tour.

    Roger is a pretty good guy.
    I like how he picks at times some amateurs in the area of a tournament for a practice session, what a lifetime thrill that must be. Totally cool.

    I didn't know Fed was such a good friend with Gaudio.

    In Paris he(Federer) booked the Crillon Hotel (the best in town) for me, so we could be together-Gaston Gaudio

    Ok,I just have to put this as my new sig.

    And on the third day, Roger created tennis and saw that it was good - Everyone. ;) Please dont get angry, just a joke.
