Sports media is the worst.
Roger Federer lost in the quarterfinals at both the French Open and Wimbledon this year. There has literally been hours and hours of talk about the “decline” of Roger Federer. He’ll never reach number 1 ranking again, blah blah.
Look… he’ll be 29 years old this August, and he already holds virtually every major Tennis record. In the three major tournaments so far this year, he a) won the Australian Open b) got to Quarterfinals at French Open, and c) got to Quarterfinals at Wimbledon.
He is having a great year–probably the second-best season among all male tennis players this year–but since it is not perfection, it is the biggest story in Tennis. I think it’s partially due to the fact that there are a bunch of nobodies left in the tournament, particularly on the women’s side. They (like me) having nothing else to talk about.
Give it a rest, guys.
