What does it feel like being No.2?

I am not a great tennis follower but for some reason I am a big fan of Roger Federer. Actually the question should be, ‘What does it feel like moving to No.2 from being No.1 for a looooooog time?’ Obviously it doesn’t feel very good after all…

Yesterday I was forced to watch the match between the legend and the wanna be legend and it indeed was phenomenal experience. During the trophy presentation the chief/announcer called Roger the No.2 player of the grand slam, Roger just smiled, and am sure everyone could see how badly he was hurt. He kept a brave front all the while and collected his trophy. I could see the expression on his face and how heart-broken he was.

Then we was handed over the mic to talk and thats when his fans would just not stop yelling out to cheer him up and show the support and they were empathising with him which Roger is just not used to and broke down….

I could not stop the tear rolling down my cheeks and was trying hard to hide it, did not want my husband to know about it. But he did and was not very shocked.

He was then asked to compose himself and talk later and Raphael was called to collect his trophy. He walks in and the first thing he did was hug Roger. http://www.rogerfederer.com/en/index.cfm. The No.1 player called Roger the No.1 Player in the world… which showed the amount of respect he had for him.

In my fan list Roger will always be No.1 player, no matter what.
