I thought this was done well...
Wow... that was truly something!
He is lovely, even in defeat. Such a special creature.
Too bad he didn't write the poem and is only reading it. Who knows if he believes a word of it.
And negative comments in 5,4,3,2,......
There's always one in every group...or thread
Very nice.... BTW what happened to Roger Federer <real>'s posts? Cant find them anymore...
Kipling was a poet and wrote the poem. Federer is a tennis player and read the poem very well.
wasnt there more to it, thought i remember it being longer
I believe him and rafa did this together and rafa read the other verse the video does not show it though because it was made to emphasize federer..now by me revealing this be ready for swarms of trolls attack this poor youtube person attempting to simply pay tribute to roger lol
Heres my favorite part
If you can meet with Triumph and Disaster
And treat those two impostors just the same;
Going back in time or bringing them here..
Yeah, that's probably most people's favorite part of the poem.
Nadal read that part, probably because he might not be understood if he had read the more obscure lines.
Anyway, nice video. For Federer's interpretation of the poem, check out my sig below
Has anybody found the design of the picture "Perfect" with the RF from federer
( beginning of the video,, ) just love the design
Here's the one with both Federer and Nadal:
They played it at the start of the programme, and then again just before they came out after the last rain delay... it makes the hairs stand up on the back of my neck watching it now, but back then it was something really special.
What is this sentimental garbage? You couldn't pay me enough to read this nonsense. Federer needs to focus more on tennis and less on poetry.
Thanks for sharing.......
Nicely done in both vids, thanks for sharing that.
Best post ever.
Oops...dwhiteside beat you to it
It made the hairs on my neck stand as well.
