VIDEO VAULT: What did Wilson ever do to you Fed?


Roger Federer may want to retire his denial dance once and for all this season.

The 13-time Grand Slammer was all out of sorts (to say the least) and was bounced from the Sony Ericsson Open today by Novak Djokovic 3-6, 6-2, 6-3. The Serb will now face the winner of the Andy Murray-Juan Martin del Potro match tonight in Sunday's big final.

So how out of sorts was the supposedly serene Swiss? Well, I wouldn't ask his now-deceased Wilson stick. Just sayin'.

Yeah, I started that thread specifically about fed and nole, complete with a spelling error, but here it is: http://www.tennisopolis.com/group/nole/forum/topics/nole-and-fed-feud
You're not off-topic that much 'teer. I'm not a topic nazi. ;-) But you should start a players feud thread in the forum, under Professional Tennis because I think there would be a lot of great insight. :-)

He was absolutely BITTER throughout the entire presser. I'm sure a few had to duck from the daggers.

This quote is telling, from the post match press conference, "When a reporter asked how much pressure he is feeling on the court these days, he replied: ``Not a whole a lot. I haven't been winning 20 [Masters] tournaments in a row, so nobody expects me to win really. No, look, it's been a tough last year or so, especially in the hardcourts. My game never really clicked, you know, except for the Open where I thought I played great.''

These two ballers have ZERO love for each other - adds to the drama, no? But seriously, not good sportsmanship but it was painful, for one of them.
