    The entire interview so people cannot just post snippets and twist his words to mean something (usually to make it seem like Roger is 'arrogant')

    Please discuss any quote related issues in this thread instead of dissecting his answers in multiple threads.

    Aww. halba and asifallasleep will never forgive you :D

    I like it where Roger says that Rafa has yet another cakewalk draw and its rigged so that Rafa can win his 7th. And where he calls Nole's streak a fluke. And where he says Rafa will be his whipping boy during the clay season. And Monte carlo should be downgraded since he does not play it.

    :D j/kiddin'.

    I don't see why you LOLLED at that comment.
    Fed & the boys used to sit around the fireplace and chat about gambling, drugs and other stupid, annoying stuff. Now they chat about how great it is that Nole got his mojo back.

    Makes perfect sense.

    On the other hand, by saying 'We', he meant "you (journalist) asking me" about my gambling and drug use. While not being stupid, that would be highly annoying whether he's guilty or not :p

    I was at that press conference - I was impressed at just how humble and down to earth he was.

    For someone who has achieved so much in the game it was incredible the respect he attributed to particularly Novak and Rafa.

    I did sense though that he maybe feels less pressure now that he's not expected to win all the time.

    A great guy and a class act all the same - to describe him as arrogant would be a serious "faux pas"
