Are these ATP jerks, using that as a motivational tool to make the finals competitive? It appears to be getting smaller with every freaking event.
What’s next? A citizen watch, a ceramic cup, a tie, a pen, Charming bathroom tissue….
Show the guy some respect, and make it worthwhile for him to lift it without getting embarrassed. I am sure, that has to be one of the most embarrassing moment holding that tray up like a 12-year old girl at a tea party, or posing for photographs next to the gigantic trophy.
Who is the freak who thought of this, and what is the freaking rationale behind it?
It is brutal to just watch the guy holding it like road kill. Have you ever seen a man holding his wife’s purse while she is gone to the restroom or whatever – with the tips of his fingers, far away from his body like a skunk?
The guy almost looks so uncomfortable, walking around with that feminine looking crap in his hand. There is no question in my mind that, that picture is the first thing that flashes in his mind, after he loses that match point. Time to wish he had lost in the semis.
Federer wouldn’t even hold his, after the FO disaster for many other reasons. He promptly gave it to his mother (even Mirka won’t stoop that low), who had it tucked under her armpit while exiting. Hey, that’s a Grand Slam hardware!!!!
Muscular and masculine Nadal looks perfect with that tray at Wimbledon, ready to serve tea and snacks to the ball boys.
Isn’t it better not to receive anything, than to be transformed into an instant waiter, on international TV for what seems like eternity? Why not add the waiter’s apron and the white cap with the food menu? That’s what you get for coming this far in the tournament. Good freaking job.
