King Arthur And His Excalibur

Post by ... on Sun Jul 30, 2017 8:08 pm

My oh my!

Federer knows how to woo!

After naming his AO17 trophy Norman and taking it to a mountain top, he now names his number 8 Wimbledon one to Arthur and takes it out for dinner.

Is Wimbledon his truest love or what!!!


The man even has a poetic gene in him...oh, I am totally smitten now...heelp! Love Blush

I love this personal "relationship" he is now having with these "late" trophies.

It even made me dream away and imagine where I'd take mine. tongueout

Oh, to be the fly on the wall of his heart and hear the words he shared with Arthur at that dinner...

Cos best things and feelings are unutterable, aren't they!

I read recently that Roddick threw all his trophies in the bin when he moved house...

I don't think he'll quoting Shakespeare or Frost anytime soon Winking

I think any sportsman or athlete tries to reflect and experience their success at different stages of their career. In Federer's case that's a lot of experience.

Seeing the old guard have a late flurry of success is always quite heart warming, especially in the case of those who might not have savoured the moment first time round. I always recall Tony Adams when he scored that fourth and final goal vs Everton 1998 at Highbury during Arsenal's surge to the title and that celebration, the closest to spiritualism I have seen in a celebration of vicotry. Given only a year earlier his life and career was seemingly in the toilet. It was like he was finally at one with himself. He said afterwards that he went to a spiritual place for that split second and Martin Tyler's commentary was absolutely bang on "that sums it all up"

Speaking of this level of dedication, I had a chat with Haddie about her husband dying. Very sad circumstances.

Sad not going to ask specifics obviously, but I did see she put out there during a debate and I did ask SB to pm her my condolences. I didn't want to registers on the site again and have to perform 10 posts just to activate the pm function. I just hope she herself is ok and obviously hope that everyone on 606V2 is sending their condolences.

Why would he need to quote Frost or anyone...

It's his moment, his feelings, his poem.

Most poems never leave the heart and bravely excape to paper.

It was context. Meaning that from my perspective it's not poetic, more of a playful range of emotions coming through.

It is his moment indeed. I can imagine the best kind of success is like surprises. When you don't expect and it happens, must be delightful in big measures.

If you are in touch please give my condolences. I remember that he'd been unwell for a long time.
