So big men cry too

Posted in News,Sports by Abigail on July 6, 2008

I just watched the longest and arguably most dramatic final in Wimbledon history. And Roger Federer – for the first time in six years – did not win. He cried. (Although not on camera.) The match was beautiful: an extremely high level of play maintained for nearly five hours, with impossible shot followed by even more impossible shot. You kind of can’t believe you’re seeing what you’re seeing. But in the end, Federer – considered by most to be the greatest tennis player of all time – cried. It makes me feel better to know that the greats cry. He’s human.

But he better win next time.

Or I’ll cry.

    What an epic five set match by the two titans of tennis. My eyes were glued to this marathon for 4 hours and 48 minutes! This was the greatest and perhaps the best quality tennis I have ever witnessed in any tournament. Congrats to Nadal for taking down the great Federer.

    Yeah, this match almost gave me a heart attack, repeatedly. I thought about swearing off watching tennis in the future. It’ll be curious to see how dominant, or not dominant, Nadal is after this.
