There are no other good Swiss male players.

That sure is true ... whatever happened to George Bastl. I never saw him play, but remember him getting some decent results for a while ... seems to have vanished.

Poor Roger must carry the Swiss DC hopes.

It's almost impossible to dislike Roger ... I just don't enjoy seeing one player dominate like he did this year.

But don't worry sportsfans! He'll be Majorless next year!

He's had some tough and exciting matches this year with Agassi, Nalbandian, Hewitt, and Roddick. So he hasn't dominated in a way that makes you always sure he will win.

I wonder what is it exactly that you haven't liked about Federer's wins this year? Isn't it nice to have a player actually win 3 majors in one year.....a bit of history in our lifetime so to speak?


IMO he's made the rest of the field look pretty inept and inferior ... just look up above at his lead in points. When he has lost, it's not so much that other players have beaten him, as he just didn't find his game that day.

I'll agree that it was fun to see him dominate this year, to witness one of the greatest years of all time ... just would prefer more competitiveness among the men in the coming years. 2004 was Roger's feast ... and all the other men were scrambling for scraps. And that will get boring if it continues ... though, fortunately, it won't.

Seb did you dislike Laver's calander grand slams?

I'm not quite that old ;) I was just little guy

I just enjoy seeing different players in the later rounds ... I like the WTA right now with a good dozen players having a realistic shot at winning any particular Major (counting the Belgians).

But I do understand your love of Fed. I don't really have a fav male player right now (aside from Gasquet ::) ) but when Vilas and Mac were playing I wanted them to win everything in sight.
