When did he say this? Lmao i think deluded is more apt than entitled
Jesus he said this when he was world number 20. Deluded it is.
Win a few slams first and then start bragging. Heck let's see you make a single QF in a slam.
Its sad tbh. Hating this guy as each day passes by, Nick might not do anything on clay. Shapo is a question mark. Next gen pls.
Interesting choice to play a challenger, even if it's in France. Did not look physically ready in Montpellier, looks like he wants to try and get a few matches under his belt and assess where he is with regards to that injury he sustained at the AO.
Simon was not WC'ed into the #1 seed so this was a planned stop for him...last DA into Rotterdam was Sousa at #57, a bit above where Simon stood at cutoff date. I guess his options were Cherbourg or the qualies. This was not a bad option, particularly if mending a bit as he preps for his Sud de France slam at Marseilles next week.
Things to watch in Rotterdam...... number 2 on this list...... end of list.
Hopefully some of the top guys give him a tongue lashing after that. Makes Kyrgios look like an angel.
Particularly so since countryman Struff's hometown of Warstein is considerably closer to Munich than Zed's base in Hamburg. No camaraderie built for DC there, although fences must have been mended as they teamed for the 1R win over Oz this month.
*Official* Geriatrics returning to dirt update.
Bendych comes back from a break down late in the first for an impressive win over Mischa Zverev, but QF with Goffin looming
Feleciano and Seppi also victorious over their LostGen opponents, but Goffin and Zverev block their way forward
Ferrer fought valiantly, but ultimately went down pretty easily to Sascha Zverev
Kohly fighting back against Khachanov 3-6, 3-1 15-30
Well he did win that tournament and then Rome later in the month.
Jesus. Kolhshy just becomes a better player when behind in score.
4-3 Kachanov final set. Kholshy on serve.
Who wins gets Federer next turn.
If Sasha reach the form he had in Rome now he can beat them all
Its your court Sasha
Khachanov outchoking Kolschreiber.
Why is that so annoying?
He is a pretty good player.
Bragging itself doesnt look any better no matter how much a player won. Federers humble bragging is pretty pathetic you ask me. Cringeworthy. Sasha is young.
Good win for Kohlschreiber to get his first win of 2018. No Chokeschreiber today (almost though)
No cringeworthy is thinking a 20x GS champion so-called bragging is pathetic but 0x GS Champion who has never even made it to a GS QF bragging is okay. It just shows you are envious of one and not the other.
One handed backhand exhibition next round then
Everything you type is cringeworthy
To each their own. If Federer's attitude bothers you, that's your right. I think he's earned the right to talk about his success. To me, Sasha sounds a bit like Tomic. He's been more successful than Tomic, but he's still nowhere near there, especially on slams.
Everything they type reeks of envy and hypocrisy. May Federer continue to make good on his bragging.
Kiss Sasha's ring.
He is known for his humblebragging and been doing that for more than a decade.
Bragging isnt cool, doesnt matter how good you are. But when they are young you give them some slack.
I'm not going to argue with you. It's how we each feel about it, there's nothing to argue about. Federer's confidence doesn't bother me. Zverev's immature arrogance wouldn't bother me if he could back it up. You feel differently, fine.
Ha! Ha! Your rant is fake. Humblebragging is not what’s bothering about Federer. What bothers you because Federer can back it up.
That was a good first set between Medvedev and Muller.
I love it when athletes brag (even better when they back it up)
Muhammad Ali is obviously the prime example of this but I don’t think Fed brags at all he’s probably one of the humblest guys on the tour.
Do you now?
Hehe, Federer and humblebrag is sort of one of the things he is famous for. That aint humble at all. But since you love bragging you don't mind it.
Muhammad Ali has a very different background and story than all the prima donnas we see in tennis. Not sure if its even comparable or can be mentioned in the same sentence. Ali is an icon. Tennis don't have any icons, maybe Borg was one.
Haha I actually quite like Ronaldo and he’s one of the greatest players of all time.
It’s just he’s nowhere near Messi’s level (no shame in that )
It’s hard to be humble when you’re the GOAT
he doesn't brag, but he does say things like "I heard ticket sales are up for me, it's great to see that kind of support". I personally don't mind it. I think some people would rather he just brag.
Signs of life. He won over 50% of the return points against Ferrer. But Zedrot only won 59% of his own serve points which though it may be Ferrer just not good enough to win events. If the serve gets back to mid-2017 form and then throw in this return game then you really have something.
His serve has to be prime to win big.
Ive seen what he is capable off, not giving him up
CabbageWriter just about gets it done.
We're not talking about your average everyday world citizens here.
We're talking about the top 1% of an elite sport. The way I see it, these people in question can only be in 1 of 3 catagories:
1) False Humility
Not much in between. Why? The way I see it, it's hard to be one of the best, or even the ACTUAL best without at least a healthy/excess dose of belief, arrogance, whatever you want to call it.
If a player achieves as much as Fedr is seen as fully humble, people will just say the humbleness is Fake/False Humility. How can you be TRULY be humble and achieve so much? Having full belief and yet humble? They KNOW they are better than most/all, but they might not say it out right. This humility is only false humility.
Many dislike arrogance, np. Also, if he is full-on arrogant, he'd likely achieve less too. Look at his early carreer, pre-22yrs old. His arrogance got in his way, him getting pissed off, or bummed out bc less talented players regularly beat him. It got to him since in his eyes, less talent = should lose to him.
Once he curb that arrogance and started respecting all of his colleagues and put in the hard yards like them, we got the Fedr Goat today. The balance is that now he is neither humble nor arrogant, but somewhere in between.
A happy compromise.
He humblebragged here with his racquet as the young upstart and on his real home court:
He was humble enough to pick up ARod's racquet afterwards. It was probably at this moment that the rising American star realized that resistance to Arrowganterer would be futile.
HATERS GONNA HATE
Lol whenever Khachanov is hyped around here he always loses his next match.
Griekspoor starting to look up to the task against Wawrinka after holding for 2-3 in the first. Will the Talon sink into the Stanimal?
They called Griekspoor a talent
My patriotic heard is crying a little
Wawrinka is spraying like peak Suresh.
I have said often that margins are small between pro tennis players.
It appears that I lied.
I mean, I said Fedr had an easy draw.
He could've drawn Griekspoor
Wawrinka seems drunk
It's my lucky day, FAA scheduled for the final match, will be able to catch this one live.
The Talon sinking in, up 3-0 in the 2nd over the hapless Wawrinka.
