All depends where you are looking. I mean, how many times does the guy have to repeat himself.
You did see how the stadium was rooting for him. All the challenges their chanting IN or OUT in his favor.
Maybe he's remembering that (someone tell him that they did the same for Joker!).
My vote is for this :lol:
Federer's stamina is Lance Armstongesque, no recuperation required.
Meh, we still have Donald Young and Viktor Troicki...:twisted:
Every time Clarky walks by the Pharmacy Section at her local supermarket, she comes back with a new name for Noel.
I guess the next one will have to do with medications for preventing anger attacks (Intermittent Explosive Disorder/Racquet Rage) ... which will be some variation of Fluoxetine (thanks Google) or Prozac.
The message was not mixed, nor did he intimate in any way he is retiring or wouldn't be back. What he was doing was being his usual classy self, by telling his shanghai fans were amazing, and that he will always remember and appreciate their support.
And, there was that issue of the death threat. Fed is not one to talk much about that. And it's quite possible the fans were extra supportive because of that threat.
Bottom line: Just another classy Facebook post by The Fed
i will stop following tennis after federer retirement
I don't believe him.
I don't think he said that. I recall reading that he said he and Mirka speak Swiss German to the kids the most and then English second. The kids are going to go to school in Switzerland after all, not North America.
What about Djokovic? Where exactly is he going to go? You are delusional I swear!
I doubt that. I think it will be something he will spring on his fans quite quickly once he decides that is it.
What about the "break" 26 year old Nadal is taking and believe me when I say his break is not by his choice if you know what I mean. :twisted:
Coming from a Nadal fan of all people that is funny!
People reading too much into Fed's words methinks. How many more times does he need to explain that as long as he's enjoying himself, he'll continue to play?
That's not a Nadal fan, that's a troll. And a bad one at that.
i agree that its much more likely that the wording is either over-analyzed, or if anything means that he is unlikely to show at that particular tournament again in the near future.
I would very much like to see Roger pare back to the schedule to the minimum it would take to be in slam form.
He's got the #1 weeks record, just go for slams.
However, on the other side of the coin, it seems like having the benefit of that #1/#2 draw does help him a lot.
I'd be somewhat surprised if we saw him win a slam being some type of #5-6 seed or something.
LOL! I see what you did there troll.
What people mean is that English isn't his BEST language. You're right that Roger spoke English words first as a baby, but Swiss-German definately dominated as he was growing up, and any native English speaker knows Roger's English is far from perfect. I agree that language issues can be used as a false "excuse" when it comes to things players say including Roger, but that doesn't mean Roger's English is his best language as it clearly isn't.
I'm American but English isn't my "first" language as my mother tought me a different one earlier as a baby, but believe me it's my BEST language by a mile . . .
youre saying 'will always remember' doesnt imply that you wont be seeing the person or group of people in this case again?
I too appreciate Nadal's work for one slam in 2012.
As well as his herculean effort to push prime Rosol to 5 sets, and still come up short. :lol:
Nothing further is needed.
