    What if(god forbid) we ever found out Roger was cheating on Mirka? Would that make you instantly hate the man and never root for him again? Never care about his beautiful game? I know I could never feel the same after such a thing, because a HUGE amount of how I feel about Rog is tied up in his adoration and loyalty for Mirka.

    Tiger's personal indiscretions, in this case, have no bearing on his accomplishments. If Roger did the same thing, I'd feel the same way.

    BTW I just realized that after all this, Roger def doesn't want any more association with Tiger.

    Mirka was smitten with Rog BEFORE he became a super-star. So we know it's never been about the money.

    Tiger's personal life is his personal life...Same with every other star or famous person out there.

    It's estimated that 60% of spouses will cheat. It shouldn't be a surprise to anyone that one of the richest, most famous athletes in the world would cheat on his wife.

    What would happen if Mirka found out he was cheating on her with a man? :(

    You mean if she found out he was cheating on her with Rafa? :):) Because we know that only Rafa is Rogi's true love.

    No, but I would be curious to see just what type of chubby temptress it would take to force Fed to lose all self control.

    I think Mirka would kick the s**t out of Roger if he was doing that. I agree it'd be a dark day in tennis if Roger drives his car into a tree in Basel b/c his wife was chasing him with a tennis racquet.

    Mirka wouldn't leave Roger, too much to lose for her. She has such easy life, she has basically done nothing for the last 6 years.

    That night, she'd decide to get on 'top'. Needless to say, that'd be enough to ... 'crush' Federer! LOL!

    Isn't she his manager or something like that?

  14. I agree.
    But what DOES surprise me is doing it despite the fact that Tiger`s wife is lightyears out of his league look-wise.

    It wouldn't diminish his accomplishments but will diminish my respect for his character.

    Just goes to show that men can tired of even supermodels(much faster depending on if the women are high-maintenance).

  20. Absolutely- These days, me personally would rather go (longterm) with a woman who is a "6"/10 (and with great personality) than someone who is a "10" (with a bad personality).

    it wouldn't take away rog's tennis achivement, but certainly will take away his image as a class act.

    I wouldn't think Rog would do that... he could have married any hot chick he liked... instead he stuck with Mirka... this is true love at work.

    Tiger instead, married this swimsuit model, just for her skin deep beauty.... the blonde prolly knows nothing about golf, about his biz.... skin deep beauty therefore can only last so long and the marriage is doomed to be a failure.

    Considering that Roger has not missed a night of sleeping with Mirka for 8+ years (his words)...it would be hard for him to cheat.

    Check out your facts. Elin is a pretty good golfer and sports enthusiast from what I heard. I'm not excusing Tiger, but I do think he needs some professional help. He needs to grow up.

    I would be very disappointed in Roger, just like I'm disappointed in Tiger.

    Tiger proved with his actions of sleeping with another woman while his wife was pregnant with his child just how much of a low life ******* he is.

    He probably cheats on fatass Mirka but he is not stupid to get caught.

    sure Rog and Mirka have true, time tested love, but also don't forget that they have a business relationship too. This isn't the case for Tiger and Elin, so I don't expect Fed to fall victim to infidelity like Tiger.

    Still, if it did happen? I don't even wanna think about that. I'm not sure if I'd ever think of him the same way again...

    She is a HUGE part of his team, almost always travels everywhere with his. She's basically his manager. And she's done an awesome job of it too.

    That's a compliment, I suppose?

    I would definitely lose respect for Fed if he cheated. It just shows a pretty significant character flaw to do that. I don't only like Federer for his game, but I also like his character, so it matters.

    She got with Fed when he was a nobody. That is very important to a smart man.

    She also has pushed him to become the great player he is and shares his passion for tennis.

    Sure, she is average looking, but you have to understand that a mature man values things other than just looks. Looks fade - pretty quickly for women to be honest

    If Rog did that I would lose a lot of the admiration I have for him. It would be a sad day for Fed fans.

    The good news is I've never even heard a rumor that he's a hound. You know the paparazzis, they would have found something by now.

    Fat women are too intimidated by Roger. I don't think Mirka has anything to worry about...:)

    With Tiger about to lose sponsorship from Nike, think of the extra bucks they're going to give to Roger...he's the top guy for them now.

    I dont think thats incredibly true. Tiger is a ******bag though..so i wouldnt want to associate with him if i was in Roger's place whether or not he cheated on his wife.

    You think that's not true or true? I def think Roger would distance himself from Tiger. Def wait to see the endorsement fallout. If Nike drops Tiger at the very least.

    I've completed reviewing all comments thus far...sensitive, thoughtful. :)

    As for me, Roger would still be one of the all-time great tennis players but would no longer be one of my all-time favorite public figures.

    The same thing applies to Rafa too. A huge part of why I like him is his loyalty to Xicsa. They've been together since 2005 and that's important to me!

    Yes and, too, his obvious sense of responsibility as a leader in the world of tennis...Roger also carries that mantle extremely well, and they both have earned and deserved much respect for it!

    lets face it, he wont lose his endorsement deal..
    @ your question on whether or not i think roger will associate with tiger:

    i think that Tiger's actions wont have an affect on the relations between Tiger and Roger, so i disagree with your statement.

    however, if i was Federer, i would never have become friends with Tiger in the first place, because from my standpoint, and from a friends standpoint who has met Tiger (father works for NetJets..) he is known to be a total a$$hole, as justified by his affair with that waitress.

    Roger's "friendship" with Tiger was orchestrated by IMG(both are clients) to further both brands. I'm pretty sure while Roger has respect for Tiger as a big-time champ that's where it pretty much ends.

    I don't think Tiger will lose endorsements - just like Kobe it will blow over eventually. His value might go down, however.

    But, his "clean" image he has cultivated for so many years is now gone forever. It seemed pretty fake from the beginning - he stayed away from controversy so well until he screwed up big-time.

    Yes he is but they're not married. Rafa started dating her when he was very young. It could be an open relationship. They seem to be fairly independent from each other.
