Picspam: DUDE! You know you can be a bit of an idiot sometimes?


This series of images is what came up when I searched “Federer + Safin” (as you do!) on Reuters Pictures. 

I was bored.

98% retarded. 2% adorkable.

      Hmm don’t think embedding works in this theme. LOL @ the picture. Fed is a walking contradiction of wins and fails.

      I was on vacation during the AO and so missed all the fun bits. Except for the final, which I watched in the hotel room. Worst holiday EVER.

      • LJ says :

        oh man, I’ll bet that was the worst holiday ever. I broke out the vodka after match point and just got shitfaced, I was in unbearable emotional pain for an entire week. Thank god I was just at home and not in any idylic island paradise or I’d have drowned myself.

      • dootsiez says :

        ^ Indeed. It was such deja vu.

        I was on vacation in NZ during the Wimbledon 2008 final as well. Same setting, hotel room, vacation, watching Federer lose to Nadal in a heartbreaker. 6 beers and 2 mojitos. 😦

        NEVER going on vacation during a grand slam again.

    Dude… *shakes head before dying laughing*

  4. JFK says :

    Aww. I wish I could have helped him get the shirt on.

  5. Alex says :

    Shirt fail. Just about the only way you can find any fail with Roger.

    • dootsiez says :

      What about hawk-eye fail? 😉

      • pban says :

        lol he is the best in business when it comes to making the worst hawkeye calls.It is as if he makes the most ridiculous challenges just to prove his point.

      • dootsiez says :

        ^ I love it how he gets that “how dare you defy me Hawk-eye!” look in his eyes. 😉

        • pban says :

          Marat was another one who thought hawk eye was a joke ….no wonder they got along so well.funny thing roger never showed irritation at errant calls when there was no hawkeye ie in 2004-2006.

      • dootsiez says :

        Yes, remember this!?

      • dootsiez says :

        And this.

        • FortuneCookie says :

          Haha,I love that clip!Roger’s reaction after the 2nd challenge is RIDICULOUSLY adorkable!Quite an upsetting thought that we’re gonna get no more Federer-Safin matches… For the quality of the tennis,of course! 😉
          But seriously Mats,’never uses bad language’?Ha,had you never seen a Safin match until this one??

        • dootsiez says :

          Pray to the tennis gods that Roger and Safin both play Bercy AND Safin draws Roger early and ends his career poetically, going out to Federer in his last match.

    Thanks for sharing the fruits of your boredom. If I didn’t want my poor husband to be jealous that I’m looking at pictures of *him* again, I’d be rotfl. 🙂

    But seriously, I think if someone is capable of winning everything in sight, getting a major writer to refer to them as a Religious Experience in a major publication, wearing pretty suits and talking about fashion in Vogue magazine, and fathering twins, they have to be adorkable if they want crowds to keep cheering for them. Otherwise all the perfection (certain recent matches notwithstanding) just gets boring. Or so a friend who lives in the UK and can therefore maybe be excused for liking a certain player tells me (but what does he know?).

    • dootsiez says :

      I should get bored more often heh?

      Totally agree with what you said about being adorkable, but we were denied Fedrinka goodness! URGH! It’s been too long 😦
