The recent Australian Open Grand Slam 2009, final tournament between Federer and Nadal was a match that gripped the whole world with excitement, entertainment and all the more the climax of the match with sheer anxiety and nervousness.
I have been an ardent admirer of Federer since years now and honestly we wanted him to win this tournament, but hey it goes without saying that you don’t need to win all tournaments right. Infact, Fedex gave a tough fight (against Nadal) in the five set match 7/5 3/6 7/6 3/6 6/2, and that’s all that his million fans actually need to see.
My heart was burning when Federer got real emotional on that last day of the tournament but we respect his emotions when he said, “In the first moment you're disappointed, you're shocked, you're sad, you know, then all of a sudden it overwhelms you,” he explained afterwards. “The problem is you can't go in the locker room and just take it easy and take a cold shower. You can't. You know, you're stuck out there. It's the worst feeling. It’s rough.”
Yes, it is rough and tough for the world’s number 1 to not win, but Fedex, we all still love you and find you even more irresistible ;-)
We did not really know of the emotional side of Federer and this is what distinguishes him from the rest. You made me cry too!!
Fedex, you are getting better each day and if you couldn’t make your 14th win in this 2009 Australian Open, then you can hit it big time the next year for sure . . just keep the faith and hard work going.
Fedex . . . you are super-duper!
