I am depressed and need a shoulder to cry on. I can't take watching such a great player get old.
Lol so true. Here I am upset about tennis match when I have to relearn 3 courses worth of organic chemistry.These kinda pics always cheer me up so here ya go
He can now go home and cuddle them all. If all else fails, just remember tomorrow if you failed an exam or screw up a job interview, Rogi would not be sad for you. So there!
Edit: It's missing the last AO. Fed fans need to get on their job and update it!
While I wholeheartedly agree with your last sentence - Tsonga ended up being the more brave one and deserved to win....I don't think this loss hurt that much, I'm very glad for Jo and the way he plays this grass season overall, I like both his game and personality. It's nice to see his game really click in another big tourney after 2008 AO.
And to be honest the way they both played in the last 3 sets, Jo clearly deserved to win, he was the aggressor, the one taking his chances, the one play grasscourt tennis as it(in my mind) should be.
I'm not depressed - still somewhat shocked.
I won the ballot and got tickets for the men's SF. Saw Roger's R16 win and the matchup with Tsonga and expected Roger to get thru. Flew in and checked into my room Wed just as the 5th set started. Tsonga, like Berdych last yr, just got hot at the right (wrong?) time - big guys can hit guys off the court - it happens.
And I'm still going to see two awesome SFs - we're guaranteed 1 new finalist. And quite possibly a new Wimbledon champion. And if Murray can pull it off, I'll be happy for my British friends. The one who is going with tomorrow can barely contain himself.
PS - I'm still wearing my red RF hat and Roger's '06 shirt.
Exactly! We must reference the Eagle thread to discuss strategies to win all these tournaments! Steffi was the only one to win the Golden Slam right? Why can Rogi? Golden slam, Golden Eagle...makes sense.Lighten up guys, the US Open is still up for grabs, as is Calendar Slam 2012 + London Olympics, as well as the 2016 and 2020 Olympics, do I need to continue here?
Totally, can you confirm that 2016 and 2020 Olympics are on hardcourts and clay, that would totally be like a triple super-olympic triple gold grandest slam all time, all surface, and all court, and so like Pokemon Music/SoulSilver & Ruby, don't even get me started about 2024..Exactly! We must reference the Eagle thread to discuss strategies to win all these tournaments! Steffi was the only one to win the Golden Slam right? Why can Rogi? Golden slam, Golden Eagle...makes sense.
Maybe you can't see the slight-sarcasm and exaggeration of the soul wrenching suffering in many the posters on this thread.I don't understand why people are being so butthurt over this.
Tsonga played a brilliant match and won.
Berdych last year didn't even play that well and won in 4. That match was much sadder for a Fed fan. Or should be.
The tennis community has some really random emotional breakdowns.
Oh man, I wasn't even sad. But for some reason seeing this video and thinking how unfortunate it is for Fed to not be winning big titles and making these kids, such young fans happier, now that is touching me a little bit right now.I posted this in the Federer new thread, but I don't think anyone will see it due to the thread being eclipsed by the superior, and far more popular Nadal thread http://www.dailymotion.com/video/x9kk2j_y-pleure-roger_people
It's called Y pleure Roger. Basically, it's a little boy who confuses Fed's tears of joy from winning the French with those of sadness/pain. It's in French, but still pretty cute.
