So it’s OK for Federer to cuss the umpire?

US Open Day 15

I have to tell you that I enjoyed every moment of Federer’s angry outburst during the third set of his match against Juan Martin Del Potro. It could not have been better timed. Really, I was so thrilled to see it that it didn’t bother me for a second that Federer got so rattled that he went on to lose the match. Sure I wanted him to win 16 Slams, but it’s OK with me that he made it to yet another finals. That too is a measure of his greatness.

And let me take half a minute to congratulate Del Po and all of his Argie fans. When he almost beat Federer in France, Del Po seemed barely able to contain his rage. Actually, he looked as if he could have stuffed a ball down Federer’s throat. Instead, he plotted and planned his revenge.

Go here for the rest of this entry and here for my blog. And thanks for reading.

I personally think that It is no big deal at all to say "shit", it is not the same thing. And Roger has a point when he express his rage. Serena was totally scary and out of line to threaten a little lady who is just doing her job.
I am totally rooting for Roger because he is the guy who brought tennis to a whole new level. But I am also happy for DP to join the elite and making it more interesting now. =)

I found myself rooting for DP almost the entire way. For me it is far more entertaining and gratifying to see someone's life come to full bloom - for someone to reach their lifelong dream and to cry with happiness. A guy getting 6.67% more major honors than he already has just doesn't compare.

But let's be clear Fed just used the s-word, no threats - nothing like Serena's verbal abuse.
