Personally - it's nice to see someone else and see a competitive match. No offense to Roger or his fans meant in that response.In terms of the fitness and beauty of the game, the all-court play, the movement around the court and the fluid one-handed backhand, Fed is a joy to watch. Today's final is competitive, but it really feels dry and lacks what Fed but none others can offer.
If something is so good then why do you want it to change?Right, it's like when Sampras was still playing & winning ALL THE TIME. I wanted him to get beat so there's a different face.

Once Federer retires then tennis will be total baseline bashing. Now that's boring.
See when Pete retired, we were lucky that he had a worthy successor.
you couldn't say it betterI like to see guys who are guys play tennis, not prima donnas always stroking their hair.
Can't disagree, tennis is becoming a boring sport "to watch". It happened when the last of the serve-and-volleyers disappeared.I agree it will be a sad day when he and Justine retire and we are only left with 2-handed, big-racketed, shrieking/grunting/feet-squeeking baseline hard-hitters...
Tennis will become a boring sport.
Being a Roger fan, I have to say that this is a great sum up. The match was definitely entertaining, and both played their hearts out. There isn't much more a fan could ask for.Personally - it's nice to see someone else and see a competitive match. No offense to Roger or his fans meant in that response.
I completely agree. The djokovic-tsonga match felt like a 3rd round match. It just didn't have that sparkle that a final well lets say...the federer-nadal wimbledon 2007 final. That had it all and the djokovic/tsonga match was 1/2 as good compared to that wimbledon final.
Yup, same here. But at least Pete wasn't in the finals of all Grand Slams a few years in a row. Roger's dominance is boring in my opinion, not Roger himself. His game's great...
