i'm not as happy as i thought i'd be to see serena lose. when she's gracious and friendly i have zero problem with her. she seemed to give lisicki full credit this time instead of making the usual lame excuses.
i was never particularly a fed fan, somewhat because he kind of nailed the agassi - sampras era closed with his coming. but i think i get it now... get why so many fans adore him. he took that sign posted in the wimbledon hallways that said 'the power racket era makes all previous tennis obsolete' and he demolished it. nice work, roger!
but, sorry... it's too late for me. the djoker is still my favorite player since agassi is retired.
I just started watching tennis freshman year in college (fall of 05, one of my hallmates was a big fan of Federer before he became huge). Still not a hardocre fan, but I watch the hell out of the GS. Fed/Rafa/Djoker all have done absolutely incredible stuff, but I wonder if my frame of reference is skewed because I wasn't watching earlier. Are all three legitimately top tier players (which they seem to be, to me), or are they just so far ahead of the pack that it seems that way?
