    Which top 5/well known tennis player hasn't received a death threat? Imagine the number of death threats Murray and Nadal have received!

    Yep, someone called "blue cat" iirc. Just google for "Federer death threat".

    So VB fans are inanimate objects :shock: :)

    Probably a good reason to skip Shanghai now. Never liked China to hold tennis tournaments.

    Not denigrating decent Nadal fans but thinking about the Seles incident, it obviously has to be someone from Federer's nemesis' camp.

    I'm actually in a bit of shocked state of mind. I can't believe someone would actually threaten Roger of all people. I really really hope he's safe and I would rather him not playing than even a remote chance of this coming across as serious threat.

    Djokovic got threats about kidnapping from albanian terrorists a couple years ago, so since then he has personal security when he is in Serbia.

    I think our dear Clarky is behind these threats. She'll go after Novak first and then after Fed, so her beloved Rafa can get back to #1 :lol:. oops, I forgot about Murray. So, Clarky is a potential serial killer :shock: ... (j/k of course, or not :)).

    Probably a Federer fan upset at Federer's Olympics/US Open performance. You know the standards they hold Federer to....

    Yeah, he would be my first choice as well (honestly, some of the stuff the guy said about Fed and his daughters is quite simply sick).

    Hard to say though, it could be any of our resident whackjobs with a phatological hatred for Fed like LOLville, the Dork Knight, Bullzilla etc.

    Of course, assuming said person (who sent Fed a death thread) is a poster here which I personally think is the case.

    LMAO! :)

    Obviously he doesn't have the sense to realize that Federer is on his last legs, on the verge of retirement, wounded and tired, so is really not a threat to any other player.

    Unless he is trying to protect the '6 times YE #1' stat :). j/k.

    So because Federer underperformed in those 2 tournaments, a desperate fan is going to kill him?

    Nadal fans were never great in logic.

    It's probably Fed himself, because he's annoyed that, even on hiatus from playing, Rafa still makes more news here in TW. He's just craving for more attention. Such a Diva, Fed is.
    How arrogant of him. :twisted:

    Agreed, it's not necessarily a Nadal fan as some people pointed out, since Federer never really 'wrecked' Nadal's career (Nadal already thoroughly dominates Federer). Probably a Federer fan who wasted his money on him winning those tournaments (Federer fans love to gamble).
