I'm a disaster
Although I've been a big Roger fan for about ten years I don't really get upset anymore when he loses either. When he won Wimbledon last year and broke the record for weeks at number one (even surpassing the 300 mark) I viewed his career as complete - more than complete in fact. Everything he may achieve from this point onwards is just a bonus because the guy has truly done it all. In fact, most things he's done many times over and more often than not more often than anyone else in history. Although as a fan I of course always hope that he will win once he's there, reaching YET ANOTHER slam semi is already a massive achievement in itself. And he wasn't that far away from even winning it, but at his age two intense five setters in a row against great players is a bit too much for him. Still, he played some wonderful tennis in both matches besides putting the next generation's big guns Tomic and Raonic firmly in their place earlier in the tournament. Much too be proud of if you're a Fed fan.
Andy vs Novak will be a good final, but personally I prefer the Fed vs Andy or Fed vs Novak match-ups because of the contrast. Andy vs Novak is for me the least attractive rivalry of any involving the big four. I'd rather see them playing Federer or Nadal than each other. All relative of course because I still expect an exciting match.
