Federer and his Fans

Well I am one of them for sure :)
Just wanted to write about this lingering thought.
Usually a tennis fan is happy when his "guy" is doing great out there on the court and disappointed when he is losing.
But being a Federer fan is different -- even if he isn't doing great at the moment
1) You know never know when he will move on to a different gear and dig himself out so no sweat there... you are riveted till the end.
2) Even if he loses you realise that Federer himself has not Fallen apart, his expressions, his post match talk usually say that he is happy that he reached to this point(usually semifinals or finals)
3) Finally I think a Federer fan is happy to just see him play
win or lose we all know --- you are God of tennis himself--

Oh Justine

There is a small newspaper cutout neatly stuck on one of my kitchen walls which says "A backhand made in Heaven" and illustrates Justine's backhand step by step. John Mcnroe describes her backhand as the most beautiful shot in Tennis. I had that paper cut out in hope someday my one handed back hand will resemble her. When I had stuck that cutout last year, little did anyone know she would gone from the tennis court so soon!

Oh Justine I will indeed miss that backhand and the fire in your eyes during all those tennis matches.
