Ahhhh the man has finally turned 31!!! And that to in style by winning the oh so revered and coveted tennis title – Wimby ’12! The victory of course came amongst the usual incessant talk of him growing old and nearing ‘retirement’ (whatever that means – to a fed fan like me.. The R word is non existent) . This charming ‘old’ man goes further to win a silver medal at the London 2012 Olympics – of course many prayed for a Gold but only glory hunters would disregard a silver!!
Why do I love this man?!?! Why do I respect him?!?! Why do I feel for him?!?! Why do I pray that he succeeds in everything he does?!?!…even though he probably doesn’t know I exist?!?!
Because that’s what we federer fans do!! We alone know and cherish the role he plays in our lives. Roger Federer is an experience…he is family!!!
Happy birthday Roger!!!
okay so djoko wins again….hw many times has he beaten Rafa now 6 time?? anyway who cares? Roger Federer still remains the only person to beat Djoko and dnt tell me Murray beat djoko too…retiring hurt may amount to victory bt dsnt nt involve the skill to beat so yea roger is the only one…
And you know what…i dnt give a shit if federer wins another slam or title…i want sublime tennis and ONLY federer can provide that..people can call it sour grapes or whatever…but IF roger ever retires (God forbid) people will be beggin him to come back…cz hs got talent, he is tennis…
LOVE YOU Roger xoxo
I am a self confessed ROGERHOLIC!!! Federer’s in my head, on my mind 24*7! I love his game, I love his passion for it, I love his knowledge about tennis and its history, I love his records….I even love his personality, his humility, his grace, elegance on and off the field……I even love it when he cries (I think its ABSOLUTELY SEXY)!
I am ecstatic in his victories, sad (yet hopeful) in his losses, love his family…just EVERYTHING about him is peRFect!! Clearly I can go on and on about this magnificent phenomenon!!
But at the same time I love tennis too and truly appreciate the game and its players!! I like Roddick, Djokovic, Soderling and various other BUT NONE to the extent of Roger of course!!
Its great to like the styles of different players but how does ONE like two absolutely different contrasting styles, two players with absolutely distinct personalities.
And that’s what leaves me baffled about FEDALS (people who like both Federer and Nadal). Its like loving
1-The hard working muscular bull AND the lean, fluent gazelle;
2-The muscle top tight fitted clothes dressed in-your-face appearance AND the classic conservative styled classic-cut outfits and loose fitted clothes;
One can’t possibly love both in the same measure?!?!
I can however comprehend people who love WATCHING a Fedal match…wherein there is a battle of the two..ultimately being indifferent to outcome of the match!! But saying “i don’t care who wins cause I love them both!!” is baffling and distasteful almost.
So the media has begun its mockery of the Greatest Tennis Player in History aka Roger Federer once again after the US Open 2010 loss in the semi finals against the Serb Novak Djokovic! And once again I as a fan am subject to ridicule by friends acquaintances and people in general.
I really don’t get it….okay may be as a Federer fan, I at times go over the edge in supporting him…and at times may be bordering Psychotic….but why is it that the media is on this constant endeavour to belittle a man who has contributed so much to Tennis History? Why is Tennis all about the so called rivalry between Roger and an Ogre aka Rafael Nadal and no longer about the sport?
Roger is and will always be a part of tennis history! He is undisputedly the GREATEST OF ALL TIMES! His play, strategy, movement on court, grace and elegance can never be equalled by any player in the tennis circuit! It was Roger Federer who raised the level of Tennis to be a sport of Elegance and Grace!
I don’t care much about Rafa as a player cause i believe he has no strengths as a player besides stamina……and so i am more or else INDIFFERENT to his existence….BUT it pisses me off when people compare the two!One cannot compare a Lion (Roger Federer) to a mouse (Rafa)! I mean to say that with Rafa its all about Victory, Winning, DESTROYING the Opponent….whereas with Roger its about playing Tennis, the love and passion for the game!
Roger Fans like Roger are PASSIONATE AND LOYAL to the core….and even though there are many who are looking forward and awaiting eagerly for the downfall of Federer….bear in mind…..we will always have Roger’s Back! And NOTHING ABSOLUTELY NOTHING can change that!
