I'm not a Federer fan by any stretch of the imagination, but I've never understood the microscope focusing on his every act. Why do fans feel he needs to maintain that 'pure class' image all the time? Pretty much every incident (eg. this one, the 'lucky shot' remarks USO 2011, the backtalk to Djokovic's camp [well-justified at the time]) has been blown out of proportion. He's not a saint, but hardly a jerk either.
That being said, if Nadal had done anything resembling this, you can guarantee the TW pitchforks would be out in full force.
Pretty much yeah. Everyone acts like an *****hole sometimes
Federer, Djokovic, Delpo fan (also like Nalbandian, Dimitrov, Tsonga)
