I am an hardcore federer fan. 1. High hopes before a grandslam. 2. Do all kinds of analyses and predictions of Roger winning the slam despite all odds against him. 3. Convince themselves by all means that Roger is going to win the slam. 4. Slam begins. 5. Roger wins initial rounds against players outside of top 100 effortlessly. 6. Loses in quarterfinals to a player who overpowers him. 7. Fans disappointed and lose interest in tennis. 8. Wait for the next slam and the cycle repeats.... did I miss anything??
