A tube station with Roger's|name

02.04.2012 | Off Court, Starseite 3

In celebration of the Olympic Games in London 2012, the names of 361 tube stations will be changed to carry the names of Olympic athletes. Roger will have his own stop near the city centre. "Roger Federer" will be one of the stops on the black line, the so-called Northern Line and will replace the normal stop "Old Street".

Athletes like Lionel Messi, Samuel Eto'o, Usain Bolt, Fabian Cancellara, Carl Lewis, Michael Jordan and Muhammad Ali will be honoured with their own tube station stops during the Olympics this summer.

@zulfziz...please don't link us these kind of articles, this is a Federer's site, in this world are mad people who thinks that white is black, and this is an article which was posted on Murray website, what do you expect to put there? Do you realize how frustrated can they be? The fact is that Federer was voted the second most respectable man in the world after Mandela, the rest is blowing in the wind.

I would like you guys to just see how people can turn so pathetic to even run a site that is literally an anti-Federer site. Below is a link of one such critic who has written a literal hate message for all Federer fans.

This is the most biased article on Federer. Granted that he be a bit arrogant and takes his losses in an ungracious manner but you can't undermine his grand slams. There is a reason why many, including his greatest rival Nadal, call him the greatest person to have picked up a racquet. It's because he was able to fend of the challenges of Sampras and Agassi when he was young to the the game. He was also able to cruise ahead of his other great rivals of his period like Hewitt, Roddick, Safin, Gonza

Moreover Federer has the utmost respect for Nadal and Djokovic as rivals and also as respected personalities. Most of the quotes in this article have been completely quoted out of context. True, he isn't the most gracious person during his defeats but he isn't God to be completely perfect. He has been the most respected and recognized person in the game of tennis. Most of the quotes (not all) have been completely misunderstood by the columnist. True this is Murray's blog but you cannot degrade or

grand slams is no joke especially when he got them at 3 different stages of his life with tough oppositions and also at a time when Murray has failed to win a single grand slam despite being a great player and a fundamental link to the 'Golden Quartet'.
 
Roger Federer is an amazing personality and to potray him in such poor light showcases the folly of the columnist. This is definitely the worst ever article that can ever be written on any respected personality ever. I hope people are not mis
