Not just media, but peer fabricated too. Not like the people around him know what they are talking about him, right? The fact that virtually all of his fellow players respect him says nothing. Or the testimonies of many fans, luminaries of the game and people involved in the game, the vast majority of which are brimming with praise. Or his humanitarian efforts, coolness on the court (for the most part), dedication to the game, and dedication to his wife and children.


Honestly, you talk about Federer the same way some people talk about Mike Tyson. He's done far, far more right than he has wrong, yet you fail to see any of that.

^^^^This article says a lot about Federer's true nature.
