Do you even know about Fed's reputation in tennis? Lol at making him look like cry baby and all that B U L L S H I T.
The guy is almost worshipped. And not just by the fans. You can find a thousand dissimilarities between him and Vito Corleone but the two most important similarities are there: respect and class.

Hate him all you want but don't fool yourself.

Do you think that it is appropriate to compare a criminal to a law-abiding Swiss citizen who earns his money in perfectly legal ways? What are your moral values when you claim that a fictional character Vito Corleone has any respect or class? Do you know meaning of these words? Do you try to insult Roger Federer.

Hey ABCD, that's just bad trolling. The humour is totally not there. Work on it mate.
Anyone not in trolling mode or in their right mind know what I mean there.
When we say that your Djokovic is Ultron we don't mean he is actually a robot, do we?

I don't have a clue who Ultron is. Godfather I know very well as it is a movie from my youth and the book was quite a best seller. I don't see any resemblance between Federer and Vito; on the contrary. If you would pick 2 opposites that would be it.

Look at it this way, both are in a dirty business (by that I mean a business full of competition). Both are highly respected by their peers. And are often considered as the ones that stand out. Vito is totally old school. In his tactics and believes and so is Fed. Fed is almost the only player joining the old and modern tennis styles together.
They both are incredibly elegant.
And just to make it clear I am talking about the Vito played by Marlon not De Niro. Brando's Vito was different than Deniro's coz Godfather changed with age and experience.
Vito also stands as a father figure to many people. Similarly Roger helps many up and coming players and trains with them.
Vito's word means a lot in his circles. So does Roger's. I recently read about someone saying that Roger was a big help in Grand Slams paying more to lower ranked players.

I think we should leave Vito's profession out of the debate. We are talking character similarities here. They aren't totally similar but there are quite a few similarities.:)

I don't like Federer because he was unfair to Djokovic in early days of his career. If Djokovic would treat any young player in a similar way today, I would be against Djokovic as well. However, I believe that there is a depth and goodness in Federer's heart. My conclusion is based on his marriage with Mirka. He could had any women in the world and he chosen Mirka. This tells me that he is not superfical and that he can see what is really important.

Apt comparison. Both of them try to maintain an illusion that they are elegant and classy, but deep down they are rotten to the core. They are also both arrogant, selfish, and greedy

don't know if I misunderstand the question, I suppose Fed would be James Bond Roger. Fed in a suit isn't too bad.

I wasn’t the one who compared Fed to a mafia boss in the first place
Do you even understand what's going on here?
If people compare Djokovic to Ultron or Terminator does it mean he is killing people or something?
I mean seriously are we even talking about this ****? 12 year olds will understand that when I am comparing Fed with Vito Corleone I am not talking about the Miafaso part. Its about their stature, their way of carrying themselves and their style.

Some individuals on this board seriously has no imagination or sense of humour whatsoever.
You'll get more of a kick out of talking to a mute cow than some of these folks.
