Roger Federer -A Champion's Cry

We all cried with you..

I WASN'T much of a Roger Federer fan. Well, that was until the Australian Open tennis final 2009. Until AFTER the final, to be exact. In fact, as an admirer of Pete Sampras, whose astonishing record of 14 Grand Slam titles was in danger of being broken by the Swiss player, I was quietly hoping Rafael Nadal would put Federer to the sword on Sunday, which is what happened.

When Federer's last shot sailed long to give Nadal the elusive Australian Open title, I was satisfied. But I had no idea what was to follow. I had no idea, most of all, that tears could also be a man's most powerful weapon.

Don't get me wrong. I liked Barack Obama's presidential inauguration spectacular, and I thought his speech was inspirational and simply great. But boy, maybe only Roger Federer can sweep you off your feet with just a couple of sentences and a couple of teardrops.

The tennis showdown was up there with the best sporting encounters in history.

But to me, the real "moment" of the Australian Open final came after the match was over. And it wasn't even when Federer tried unsuccessfully to fight back tears. The guy is well known for crying easily and his fans are no strangers to his outbreaks of emotion.

This time it was rather different, though. His were not tears of joy because he was on the losing end of a major final he wanted so much to win. He approached the microphone during the trophy presentation ceremony trying very hard not to cry. He even said a few words to loosen himself up and distract his own heavy heart. When someone in the audience shouted, "We love you!", his efforts at self-control were in vain.

Speechless and choked with emotion, there was no way in the world Federer could utter a word to the crowd without crumbling like a heartbroken schoolgirl on her best friend's shoulder.

The organisers decided to let him retreat and have Nadal, the winner, address the spectators first. (For a few seconds I had this scary feeling that Nadal, who was looking emotional himself, might be infected and break down, too. That would have turned a beautiful, touching moment into something a bit ridiculous. I mean, two heartthrob athletes crying at the end of a Grand Slam final? That would be one man too many.

But Federer, who started it, rescued it. And he did so graciously. As the organisers were looking rather awkward and unsure after handing Nadal the trophy, Federer stepped up toward the microphone. "Let me try again," he said. "I don't want to have the last word; this guy deserves it." With that, he had me. What can I say? We have all been in situations where everyone wants to have the last word and opponents are there to be humbled, not respected. Federer showed us the soft side of a man and his sense of sportsmanship and fair play at the same time. It's easy to praise your rivals when you are on the winning side; handling a devastating defeat in such a manner is different.

The five-set Australian Open final took our breath away. Federer was absolute tennis poetry in motion, and Nadal's extension of his mastery of clay to other surfaces continues to amaze the world.

It was the kind of game you didn't really want either man to lose; a classic clash of different skills that were equally superb; a demonstration of unbelievable composure and stamina; and a great example of what healthy and constructive rivalry can give us.

Without Federer, Nadal would not be where he is, and vice versa. That must have been the thought on Federer's mind when he decided that, despite the trophy and fan's deafening roars of approval, Nadal's deserved honour would not have been complete without the most important element - true respect from his fiercest rival.

Like someone said, the two players are becoming the best things in tennis since the racket itself. That's surely arguable, but we can't take anything away from the touching and inspiring drama that happened after the game. For more than four hours, the two men played like battling angels unleashing balls of fire against each other, nothing on their minds except victory at the other's expense.

But in the end the rivals became a pair, and glided down to earth to show us the good side of human beings.

Kind words can be short and easy to speak, but their echoes are truly endless.

Roger Federer: Humility vs. Pride

Federer has the career that has launched a thousand articles. His legacy leaves nothing left to prove, except to himself.

His long-term dominance is over, but he knows he can still taste Grand Slam victory a few more times. He knows the journey and its demands, and that his mental commitment must drive him to a career renaissance.

Federer knows to avoid the vanities of his great achievements. They will not serve him in winning his next title and conquering his two great rivals. There is no place for arrogance, even though he once brought the sport to its knees. Even the mighty Roger cannot outlast the game.

Instead, he has turned to a peaceful commitment in his efforts. He has appreciated his success with self-stated confidence, not demanding or expecting the tennis gods to entitle him with undeserved victory.

He is playing tennis with the humility of a wise champion. He respects the time he has to play now, and he will prepare himself to be worthy of every challenge.

Federer is playing excellent tennis, but there is something different about his confidence. It’s as apparent as the upgrade to his efficient backhand.

He is still the master, with his variegated array of shots and angles, and his court sense and acumen has not diminished a whit.

His aura sparkles with each crisp forehand, and there is an unshakable undertone and belief to his game.

Springtime has arrived in Miami, and Federer’s game may signal a rebirth of another glorious tennis season for the maestro. Whether he seizes this title or not, he is ready to battle with a sense of pride and strength that has always characterized the great ones.


A Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle is to be produced. Mayhap he posses excessively forest green as his masque,a versatile artillery as though a Mark I trench knife with its unbounded and baneful service.

Aristotle is from the Hellenic era and antecede the rebirth by several centuries, but this artificer-thinker-mathematician certainly barracked the tetrad.

Federer’s record is novel, as he is the one who has accomplished three Grand Slams or more at three different venues. His CV(curriculum vitae :)) is cognized for its balance of ascendance with 6 Wimbledon, 5 U.S. Open, and 4 Australian Open titles, and with a French Open title. His tennis virtuoso and skillfulness have been well documented and appraised.

Aristotle was an archetype philosopher in the arenas lying in the domain from politics to ethics to astronomy. He even interrelated Alexander the Great. Federer is the touchstone of tennis brainy and creativity and will be scoped throughout the world.

Multi Suface Master

Roger Federer is determined for Grand Slam victories, and has been quested by rivals Rafael Nadal and Novak Djokovic.
While each of these magnanimous three has testified their dominance in winning Slams and retaining the no. 1 ranking, a nigher scrutiny shows that only Federer has been capable to dominate on two surfaces.
In addition, there are a smatter legends who also showed greater dual-surface domination than Nadal and Djokovic.
Dominating one surface or venue is most impressive, but dominating two surfaces is masterful.
There are only five true dual-surface masters since Tennis’s open era renaissance.

One-Handed Backhands Conquerer

The ground strokes of Swiss legend Roger Federer have put him up there with the greatest players of all time, and his one-handed backhand is no exception.
Fed has always been able to leave crowds in awe with his ability to place backhands anywhere on the court and with any kind of spin that he wants, especially from the backhand side.
As good as his forehand is, his one-handed backhand is arguably the most impressive part of his game, and it has helped to establish him as (potentially) the GOAT[Greatest Of All Time].
