Just wanted to say a quick WOO HOO! to all the Fed fans here. I'm sincerely happy for all of you, and of course for Federer but he's not reading this.
He looked great, focused, and VERY intent on earning that trophy. (Personally, I've put him in the GOAT category for a long time already--now that I know what GOAT means, lol--critics be damned, and I'm not a diehard fan, which makes me more objective, I think.
) Enjoy the moment, it's a biggie.
Now everyone can go back to getting to their haircut appointments and sleeping past 6 AM again...at least for the two or so weeks until Wimby!
Oh, I have to say one thing--I'd been perched at the edge of my seat watching the match intently when I finally decided I HAD to get up to pee. I ran in there and did my biz-niss as fast as I could and can I tell you that when I came back everyone was talking about this huge thing that had just happened and I was like, whaaaa
? Broadcasters referring to something "scary" and I couldn't believe that it happened the very second
I got up. Happens every time.
But when I saw it on the replay I was glad I'd missed it, I would have had a heart attack...at least I knew he was okay.
I think what was really frightening about that moment was that the guy seemed really
intent on getting to Roger, and he was trying to pull that thing over his head or something. Streakers are fairly common and expected, but what I saw was someone who was really intent on doing something to Roger, and that freaked me out. My first theory was that it was a Soderling fan trying to mess with Roger's head.
Oh well, all's well that ends well...and I'd say it ended well for the Federation
