Federer just can't win this. Federer might as well just say "I'm the GOAT so you can suck it". There is no point in being nice for Federer or any top players because cynical morons like you will always come up with a way to demonize the action.
If you are a top tennis pro, the following applies:
Charity work= PR stuff. Also, you are a greedy bstard and trying to get a little tax break.
Say something nice about your rivals= Being a shameless phony in front of the camera.
Take a bathroom break= cheating bstard.
