Roger Federer is over

April 6, 2008

I don’t follow a lot of tennis, let alone tennis commentary, but some people are acting like Roger Federer’s career is dead because he’s lost a few tournaments that no one has ever heard of. It wasn’t that long ago that he had made it to a record ten consecutive grand slam finals. And there’s been what, one or two slams since then? Gimme a break. It’s like freaking out about a baseball season after six games.

Federer lost???

January 25, 2008

Are people happy about this? I enjoy watching tennis, but I follow the sport slightly less closely than I follow hockey.

Do people get excited when there’s new blood? Is Federer too dominant? I always like to see Tiger Woods in the last pairing, but maybe this is different.
