Federporn Friday (By LJ) – AO2014 Pre-Fedal Grit & Determination Edition
I know y’all are facing the Fedal jitters, the palm sweats, the neck hairs, the lingering unease in the pit of your stomach, the desperate need to attack the xanax, stillnox, valium, moscato or other drug/alcohol of your choice to cope with the stress that Fedal brings.
The thing is… I never used to stress this much about Fedal, but then Wimby2008, AO2009, FO2011, AO2012 and the ENTIRETY of 2013 happened and now I want to vomit my guts out at every Fedal matchup.
But even though this inexplicable and unnecessary stress blankets everything, there is always a faint sliver of hope. And as we Fed fans struggle through it, suffering the slings and arrows of outrageous fortune, we somehow…somehow come out alive the otherside.
I braved the intense, insane Melbourne heat of Australina Open 2014, to bring you hopefully some of the best and most interesting Federer photos that you’ll see on this side of Getty Images. Waiting on court 17 in 43 degree heat for hours (thats like 109F to you imperial peeps) is something that I only do for one swiss potato nosed dude.
I thought I might save the Shiney ones for a bit later on when we’ve calmed down and can then appreciate aethestic value a bit more, but today I’d like to do something different.
It’s not often that we associate Mr Federer with grit and determination but under this BALLERina is a pure LION and this… my friends… is a tribute to this foundation of fight. As fans we must also use the same grit and determination to endure the best and the worst. ENJOY THE FRAZZLE BIATCHES!!!,
