federer will cry for sure if he wins tomorrow.

he is just a really really emotional guy, i have nothing against that, to me, it just makes him seem so much more human, roger is just expressing himself as "yeh this is me, this is who i am".

besides regaining the no.1 ranking and winning wimbledon again were his 2 main goals for this year, and to achieve both those feats on the same day is so rare, he can flood the whole court for all i care hahaha.

Humans have emotions, there's nothing wrong with expressing them. Should Federer act like some unemotional robot? That would be boring and weird.

No, he will not cry this time.
Crying is a way of releasing pressure.
He has very little this time.

Dont think hell have too much time to celebrate, because if Nadal wins the USO, he would msot likely take the rank back.
And even if Nadal doesnt win, he has like 600 pts to defend after the USO

Roger Federer will regain the number 1 ranking. I just hope he doesn't cry.
You just can't learn when to shut up!
I hope there's no more doubt

Roger's gonna whip Rafa! Rainer is giving Rafa a tough set? Rainer? I hope none of you bet on Rafa because although he'll probably get to the final, he's gonna lose to Roger quite convincingly.

DF is right, I have been on the money this year. Did you forget about the curse of 13 so quickly? Nobody, and I mean nobody, believed Roger would beat Rafa at their next meeting after the AO. Nobody except the guy who called it.

then its best you star threads without reasoning, look what happened when you tried to use your brain

and another thing, i'm not saying roddick is definitely winning this, i'm giving him a fighting chance, the guy is playing the best tennis of his life this year

I don't think Fed will cry. He's been doing great lately.
Manly tears of joy of course, like at the french..i think his trophy ceremonies are the most heartwarming....then again he's been in the majority of them for half a ****ing decade now but still...and he pretty much tears up all time even at last years USO

His tears prove he's manlier than the rest of the tour

I really like what henman said about roger and his crying, "I beat Federer in the final at Basle [Federer's home town] three or four years ago and he was crying his eyes out. When he won Wimbledon in 2003 he was bawling his eyes out. He's just a really emotional guy. He's honest enough to say 'this is who I am'."

Regardless If Roddick wins on Sunday or not Fed is #1 again so Rickson isn't really going on a limb here.

Sorry but can someone please educate me? I remember not long ago reading a post that says even if Federer wins this this this and that he'll unlikely regain no.1 right away, but now he'll do it just by winning Wimbledon? Something changed with the ranking system?

The way I understand it,if Fed wins on Sunday he becomes #1 right away,on the other hand if he loses he'll become #1 once the points from Olympics are taken off(in July I think) but it is certain he'll get #1 spot either way(for how long it remainst to be seen).Hope this helps.

That's what sucks about these boards.

If such a thread was started by N_F about Nadal, gj011 about Djoker or Maximo about Murray all the pack of rabid *******s would be ganging up all over them calling them all sort of nasty epithets.

Sorry, guys, but for us neutrals you certainly don't look any different, simply there are more of you here and you have the support of the mods, that's it. It is ironic watching you call other people classless, trolls and ****s and asking for bans. Get a mirror.

That said, mad kudos to Mr. Federer. The man works hard and smart to give himself chances, but once in that well earned position he is certainly not short of luck.

I won't get into flame wars discussion but while there are certainly trolling threads started by Fed fans how exactly is this one of them? From what I understand Fed wil be #1 whether he wins the final against A-Rod or not.I wouldn't have problems if Murray reached #1 and his fans made a thread to congratulate him,same for Novak(heck if he ever gets there I'll probably be so excited I'll make the thread).

Maybe I misunderstood the rankings system.

Regardless of what happens tomorrow, Fed will hold 2 (or 3) of the slams and deserves no. 1, end of story.

Theoretically, Nadal could enter indianapolis, LA, and tourneys like that, so that's premature:)
Oh okay so Nadal can still hold it if he enters some tourneys until 27th July.Maybe it is premature then,either way it doesn't matter that much.Since Fed won FO I don't really care that much if he's #1 or whatever.In a way it would be probably fairer if Roddick wins this one but it doesn't work that way,there's no mercy in professional sports,you have to really earn it.I'll be glad whomever wins tomorrow,I won't root for Fed this time,will be neutral.

if he cries he's an a-hole. He shouldn't feel satisfied regaining the number one spot when the man who snatched it from him after 5 years of invincibility is injured.

But he's going to get it so well done.


I'm not bitter, as people think, just sad for Nadal. After all the hard work he put it and all the unthinkable things he achieved to get the ranking, it's sad he loses it this way. It's like all his efforts mean nothing and meanwhile almost everybody acts as if Federer has become unvincible again, and he's truly the GOAT when months ago they didn't believe his chances and thought he was finished .:cry: What hypocrites everybody and critics are.:cry: we should all be so lucky to have our toughest hurdles in life be pushed aside to reach our goals. :cry:

Hopefully he can do some stuff in the US. It would make things better if he can win US open but not holding my breath. Though he did win AO after coming back from injury. Maybe there's hope. :cry:

^ Not bitter? Um....yeah, right.
Federer won the French fair and square. Nadal wasn't good enough on the day and got knocked out.

one could also say one of the reasons rafa got to number 1 was because of fed's mono. Btw, if anyone is to blame for rafa's injury, it is him and his team. Perhaps if he learned to work out his schedule better, we wouldn't have this situation.

And yeah you sound like a whiny, bitter, cry baby. Your first statement just says it all about how you feel. I'm sure even rafa will happy for roger and probably isn't bitter or whining like some *********s are.

Also I'm pretty sure the only people who thought federer was done were the haters themselves. Seriously your whining has gotten beyond ridiculous.

The first bold part of your post contradicts the second bold part.
Please try to be rational.
Btw, what is Nadal doing to un-exhaust himself?

Frankly, it doesn't matter to me if he cries or not. He has every right to express himself as he wishes, to wear what he wants, marry whom he wants to, etc etc.

It really is sad, i agree with you. All Federer's years of hard work and dedication laid waste due to some freak illness called mono or whatever, and suddenly some chap who couldn't beat him becomes number one, and is considered by almost all (read: some whiners) to be invincible.

And a year later, after many losses in finals, when Federer does make it back, his slam wins are tainted by whiners because that same chap who couldnt beat him before is injured or exhausted.

Anyway, i have a lot of respect for Rafa, i don't wish to get into this negative posting just because of his fans who can't control their hatred for Rafa's competitors. Rafa deserves his wins, and top ranking, and so does Federer.

I am sorry that Rafa could not maintain it. Rafa's knee injury is NOT some freak accident that happened when he slipped or knocked his knee or anything. He paid the price for pushing himself to or beyond his physical limits to be number one. The effort caught up. He has to rest and decrease his load to what he can bear if he wishes to play healthily for a long time.

babbette, i think you were better than the other you-know-who's. Please don't be small hearted. :)

What does sadness for Nadal have to do with Fed being an a-hole? Don't lie to yourself,you are bitter.

I hate to break it to you but Nadal isn't bigger then the game,the show goes on without him,same goes for Fed as well and any other player for that matter.Better learn to accept that fact sooner than later.

Nadal's recovery seems to be going well so there's no reason he won't be in full health soon and do well at USO,he reached the SF last year,it's quite possible he goes a step or two further this year.

Trust me, he will cry. :(
Like you did when your boy lost to Roddick. :(


I agree with Sentinel. Whether he wants to cry or not is none of our business. Assuming he wins later, he has every reason to cry and get emotional since it will be in the history books and add to that he'll get it at the 1st GS he won. It will mean so much to Fed - record breaking 15th GS, 6th Wimby and regain the #1 ranking. But let's not get carried away since there is still a match to play and Roddick is highly capable of pulling an upset.

Sorry to disappoint you, maximo dear.

Rickson, you almost jinxed him dude, admit it or not. I had to work hard for 4 hours to unjinx him, believe you me.

Anyway, congratulations all, for Roger's great win, and his comeback to number one. Hope he has many great years ahead, and many more slams, too.

I am with you on that. Good to see Roger back. The world of tennis just didn't seem right with Nadal on top. Sorry Nadal fans, but thats how I felt. And I am not a Fed fan, even though I was cheering him all through Wimby.

I always thought that 2 looked awkward in front of Fed's name and more awkward the 1 in front of Nadal's. Now order has been restored. Soon a 3 will be next to Nadal's name. I don't wanna see a 2 in front of Murray's, but at least it'll never be a 1.

Wow, anyone else find my post weird?

No, your post seems perfectly fine.
Having a 1 in front of a grinder or a pusher doesn't look right.

However, sooner or later there will be a "change of the guard". Probably in Nadal's favor. Hope that change doesn't happen for a year or three. After that, could be an era of boring tennis.

Sadly, that might be the truth seeing as how the #2 and #3-ranked players are pusher/grinders, but remember, these same players will be the ones who have the shortest careers. I'mma go ahead and say a 35-year old Fed will be more competitive than a 31-year old Nadal (probably retired already) and a 30-year old Murray. Heck, even a 34-year old Roddick will still have his serve.
