    How angry and furious can you stay when your favorite players either lose, or make a dumb mistake. For me, I was pissed for about 3 days when Roger lost TMC to Gilles.

    Anyone else stay mad for long?

    I'm still pissed that Federer lost Wimbledon last year.

    And I'm still pissed that Obama won in november last year.

    So to answer your question, very long! :???:

    Not long usually.

    Federer losing to Nadal at Wimbledon did hurt though, wasn't nice at all.

    Disappointed in Fed for a day or 2, not furious he lost wimbledon.

    I had a feeling Nadal was definitely going to win. But at least Fed didn't lose it in straight sets.

    Why on earth would you be furious by someone else losing whose life has absolutely nothing to do with yours?

    I don't understand it.

    its about him living vicariously through his idol, who's face he have emblazened on his underwear, backpack, bed sheets and curtains.

    Until that player wins their next match...
    Well, I usually don't get angry or disappointed in players. They're only humans after all. As long as they gave it their all its fine...

    Its all depending on the round the player loses at, I can be disapointed from a day to weeks.

    Ditto. Especially after that comeback from 0:2 sets.

    I don't get furious in the first place.

    I only get angry at myself if I lose a match I know I can win.

    ditto, I only get mad at myself. I don't get furious, but disappointed when top players with such talent don't have that inner drive to become better and just give it everything they got instead of just burning out and giving up.

    Agree completely. Maybe I get a bit disappointed but not furious. After all, it's not like they're sharing their prize money with me.:)

    But when I lose, different story.

    I remain moderately annoyed about that lack of a line call in the second set of the US Open final on a break point on Federer's serve, could have affected the outcome of the match.

    Instead nothing was done, Federer got out of jail on his serve, went on to win the match and now *******s go on about how he trounced Murray "the only time when it matters". :roll:

    As my username implies, I'm furious a lot.

    I don't know if I've ever gotten that way over tennis but I still haven't gotten over my beloved Lakers losing to the green weenies. I threw out my pair of adidas KGs because I couldn't stand to look at them and refused to wear any thing green the entire summer.

    I am a venter. If something bothers me, I vent briefly, get it out of my system and move on. I don't care to dwell - it's a waste of energy and negative emotion. As for matches, unless I have a bet on the line, it's not something that would raise my BP.

    If federer won wimbledon he'd have the record for consecutive wimbledon titles. Then you could tell your grandkids "ye, i watched that match live"

    I don't re-watch a match that my favorite player has lost. That's the extent of my furor.

    Wimbledon did hurt, but I think I was more dissapointed than anything! It was a great match even if it didn't turn out the way I hoped it would.
