Is Federer the Greatest Sportsman Ever?

Post by terrya1965 » Sun Jan 28, 2018 10:36 pm

I think he is.

He just won his 20th Grand Slam title today.

He plays the game with such grace and skill,while many of the others play with power.

In my book,the fella is a genius.

It's The Don for me.
Federer is certainly up there though.

Communism deprives no man of the power to appropriate the products of society; all that it does is to deprive him of the power to subjugate the labour of others by means of such appropriations.

Brilliant sportsman and a gentleman as well.

But why the fuck does he cry everytime he wins even when he's odds on favourite? :lol: :lol:

Greatest tennis player ever ,absolutely agree,brilliant...

Greatest Sports man...up for argument,there's a few can challenge that.....
...For me.. Sugar Ray Leonard,Tiger Woods,Sachin Tendulkar,Valentino Rossi,Steve Redgrave,Bolt,
Micheal Johnson(athlete),just a few personal favs that sprung to mind....there's more.... :lol:

Side Note....I'd prob go with Ruud Gullit Greatest Player I've seen...Complete Footballer...

Very hard to argue against Tel.

And done in the greatest era of mens tennis ever. Wouldn't call him a genius, more raw talent, hard work, determination... Always had a massive serve, has every shot in the book and more, moves around the court with ease and never seen a bead of sweat on him.


My sporting genius, and favourite sportsman over the last 20 years... Mr Ronnie O'Sullivan.

I remember us going 1-0 down at the bridge then going on to win 2-1.
I could see my Bruv in the shed end and had a great day taking the piss out of him.
The one thing we both agreed was Gullit was on a different level than anyone else on the pitch, trulely one of the best players I’ve seen kick a ball.

Remember they done us 3-0/3/1 ,shit at remembering scores.. :lol: (think Bilic played,not sure)
As much as I love the Irons,couldn't take my eyes off him,completely controlled the game..
Was like a cross between a midfield version of Beckenbauer and Moore,a joy to watch..
He was brought up on the Dutch Total Football thing,any player should be able to play anywhere
on the pitch....to be a Footballer not just a FB or CF,CH,but be able to play FOOTBALL,

You find that with the top sides now,they have 5-6-7 players that could do a job anywhere on the
park if asked,where as us lot are very defined in their roles.....

Adds a bit more weight for your man Tel.

Just became world no.1 again at the age of 36, the oldest ever.

He cried again though. He needs to sort that out :)
