What if this "Federer" didn't really exist, except as some Jungian figment of the imagination of all those aesthetes who ever had to sit through a Luis Horna vs. Mariano Zabaleta match on clay... maybe he started out as an idea in the mind of some Sega Genesis game designer, but the algorithms just got out of hand and he leaped across the Great Divide like some character out of a Philip K. Dick novel. Or maybe he's just a good old-fashioned hologram, like on your credit card.and
Q. From the time you were down Love-40 in the first game of the third set, you did not lose a point of your serve until that mishit.The whole thing here. I know this doesn't fit my theory about Roger and Rafa, but what the heck - maybe they're both androids.
"Federer": That's awesome. What, that last game or what?
Okay, how could "Federer" not know? I submit to you that only a creature or fabrication without emotion or the power of abstraction (yet cleverly programmed to mimic a young human by frequently saying, "awesome!") could be so oblivious to what he/it had just accomplished.
P.S. For fellow Nadal fans, as disappointed as I am about his exit from the US Open, here’s the latest version of his blog.
