Flashback Salty Fed at 2011 USO

Recently watched this for the first time since it happened live.

Confirms my ranking of his 2011 USO as the significantly bigger choke than WMB19. He was up 2-0, he was 30. This is also the saltiest I could remember.

Very quietly:

I miss this Federer. I miss when players were this raw with their emotions. I also feel like you should openly dislike and be upset with your rival. I feel similarly with Djokovic. This PR-fueled buddy buddy stuff is probably best for their bank accounts and the ATP’s, but I feel that it is the exact definition of bad faith acting that Sartre discussed: i.e. confirming to social pressures to be “classy” instead of giving into your true feelings about the situation. Sadly, such is our society today.

I hate you, Kralingen.

I think we've had 3-4 threads about this just the latest month or so.
Imagine the level of obsession that this presser is constantly being posted here 10 years after it happened. The haters haven't figured out to move on and focus on something to love or value. It's just vitriol dripping from them 24/7.

Definitely one of his low points. Bounced back nicely right after though. Swept the indoor season and then had a resurgent 2012 to get back to #1.
