Come on now, I wrote him off a little bit too. I always believed he had the form inside him but I thought mentally he had lost it.
All geniune tennis fans who can recognise greatness and who wrote him off - whoever you support - feel free to say sorry. Even if you don't like the guy and wanted him to lose, you gotta admit he's good.
I don't know why there is this total denial of brilliance between some Federer and Nadal fans. (I stress SOME, not all) They are both brilliant, they make each other all the more great. To achieve something when there is another true great in the game is a greater acomplishment. So the fact that Nadal is number one when Federer is obviously a tennis great and playing well now is all the more credit to Rafa.
The fact that Federer came back after Nadal has beaten him in two slams this year is all the more credit to Roger.
There are some people like stephanerationnal who seems to be on the line between fairness and Federer hating. Why would you want to paint a big rival of Nadal's (who despite a losing record, probably has more wins against him that any other top player) as a poor player when that makes Nadal achievements look like less? You're greater by beating a great player rather than an ordinary one. Some people are just Federer haters, they don't care about Nadal or anyone else in today's game, but Rafa fans are different surely? I'd be interested to hear whether you can recognise that Federer is a great player now and take back this comment "When Murray wins,will he display the biceps?" WHEN Murray wins? hmmmmm...
