Federer, you are playing with fire.

My famous quote “All the world loves a winner and has no time for the loser” is about to kick in.
Either get your house in order (and by now we don’t give a rat’s ass how you are going to go about achieving that) and start winning again or just get out of the way.
We don’t have the time to be cooking up excuses and alibis every time you fall flat on your face against a tomato can anymore. You are now running on fumes and if the lease of life you got after winning the US Open is not exploited to the hilt to bring the train back on the tracks, expect a massive exodus of fans.
History is proof that the adoration of fans is predicated largely on the ‘W’. All other BS comes after. Sure there will be some die hard fans but that’s a minuscule minority.
Winning is all that matters. If your moves moving forward are laced with any other consideration, you are doomed even before you start.
This year you have actually won just ONE title with 12 losses, compared to eight solid ones from your arch rival.
We don’t want to hear about how you are feeling or you are taking a rest or you don’t have a coach or Wawrinka is not putting out, or cutting hair is getting too expensive whatfreakingever.
If you are not winning, you are losing big time. At 27 that’s pathetic.
