It’s okay Andy

September 10, 2006

Four sets, 17 aces, no double faults, whatever… Federer is just a morally bankrupt Swiss. Did anyone else catch that hagiographic piece about the ugly Swiss one by David Foster Wallace the Times felt the need to publish about a month ago? Two of my least favorite people together at the same time. Apparently the Times has succumbed to a major Fed-crush, check this blog final wrap-up. I have one word for all of you: Sampras. From the humble point of view of this tennis fan, Federer has a long way to go to touch Pete’s legacy, and when it comes to sheer visual appeal he is far behind Mr. Roddick for now and forever. Every time I look at his face I think, pug dog. That’s one reason why I try not to look at his face.

In more appealing face news, we put on The Island as wallpaper for after dinner study hour tonight. Ewan + Scarlett = opposite of pug dog face. Although after having read Never Let Me Go the plot really didn’t do that much for me.

    I just can’t like Federer. He seems to be perfectly nice, but so what. His personality leaves much to be desired. Maybe I’ll like him when he’s about to retire. I didn’t like Pete for a long time. I didn’t root for him until he was older. My sister can’t stand Nadal, but I love that someone has Federer’s number. I always wonder if he cares that he is not the champion of the people. How can you get passionate about him?

    Precisely. I think people felt the same about Bjorn Borg, who also like to rock the sweatband as Frida would put it.

    you do not have to like Federer but you must to respect him.
