Roger federer looks emotionally at the trophy that he so wanted.

It was an emotional scene. Federer fighting back tears, while looking for words in his speech. He couldn’t say anything, he could’nt find words, he was fighting, fighting back tears.

As i watched him, i felt for him. I could see how much he wanted this. He needed this so much, it really meant alot to him. This was not only a victory in the Australian Open, a win would have provided him an assurance that he could still be capable of doing his tennis wonders and be able to play high quality tennis.

Fighting back tears, he said, “God, it’s killing me”  

“I love this game, it means the world to me and it hurts when you lose.”


The game he plays on that level takes everything out of a man. It also is one that forces you to stay out there afterwards, even after you lose and it doesn’t allow you immediate privacy to deal with your emotions, after losing a final. I really think so.



It meant so much to him

It meant so much to him.




That said, Federer will still be the humble, awesome tennis player that i have always come to respect and support.
