  1. That was funny. I enjoyed that. Although when Roger loses to Novak at the U.S. Open I want to go to nearest bar and cry in my beer.

  2. Haha great list Jonathan!! Good relief from the irritating buzzing in my life that is probability. Favourites have to be 7,8, and 11, the latter for the sheer accuracy!

    Although when Roger loses a slam semi, I do manage to convince myself I can punch through walls πŸ˜€ (what makes it worse is that they aren’t my walls)…

    John πŸ˜€

    1. Cheers John!

      To be honest they all make me laugh! I like the draw one now, too funny.

      Haven’t got a wall punching gif, you’ll have to video it and send me it. Although all being well it won’t happen again!

  3. Brilliant, but you forgot one — When Nadal fans say Rafa lost to Roger because nads was tired, injured, etc.

    CUE video of a alarm clock scene from Groundhog Day

  4. “When Federer gets broken when serving for a set”. That is my favourite! That is my literal reaction every time. Plus the reaction to Murray being the favourite cracks me up. Thanks very much for this. It’s not often I can relate to something so perfectly!

  5. Laughing out rolling on the floor!….That was hilarious but so close to the heart…my personal feeling…when roger loses to Ra-fail or djock-itch i feel like 5 and 16! when he wins my wife says “seems like federer has won that’s why you are in such a great mood” πŸ™‚

    1. I know man, I was like that in US Open semi 2 years ago, annoyed at first then like πŸ™

      Sounds like your wife knows you well πŸ˜€

      Thanks for the comment.

      1. I should do something similar on my blog but don’t worry, I won’t steal your gifs πŸ˜‰

  6. hilarious and genious !!! my favourite one is 3 because the gif is so funny. i can really identify with number 4 since i watched the 5th set at work with 10 people and the way i behaved they really thought ive lost it. my second favourite is number 7. exactly the way my face looks πŸ™‚

    1. Thanks! I still can’t decide on a favourite as I keep changing my mind! I do laugh at Number 11 though an awful lot.

      I just changed 5 to 4 in your comment btw as I knew which one you meant πŸ˜€

      1. thanks for changing it. is 11 taken from the movie baseketball ? very funny film πŸ™‚

  7. Mostly perfect. My favs- 3(epic expression lol), 7, 8 πŸ˜€ , 16, 22, 23, 25

    13 – special mention coz the gif is so good. The girl is too cute πŸ˜€ 19- nice expression.

    11 – I just laugh when they say that about Murray, 24 – Nothing can express what I feel when that happens, particularly against Nadal, the headbanging smiley comes close i guess.

    1. I’m glad you like so many of them!

      11 is hilarious because both their looks work so well.

      Here’s one solely for when Fed gets broken when serving for a set against Nadal:

      Hair Pulling

  8. Bwahahahahahaha! When you’re all in agreement Fed got a good draw. That was side-splitting funny!

  9. Excellent post, Jonathan.
    Laughed my head off. Sooooo true, that’s exactly my life as a Roger fan. Brilliant! [especially 3,5,8,11,18,21,24 with jim carrey]

    1. Hey!

      Thankyou πŸ˜€

      I must have looked at these 100 times today but I still laugh when I see them!

      I’ve just decided I like em all!

  10. Wonderful collection! I guess we all feel the same.
    I had given up watching tennis, walked past the family room at my son’s home, saw Fed in the semi-final at Wimbledon in 2003, and said, Who’s That! I was hooked.

    thanks for the laughs!

    1. Thanks Judy!

      For some reason I thought I’d replied to your comment!

      I love how every Fedfan has a story of how they started watching him! I think for most it was love at first forehand.

  11. Oh my God, this post is great, really really fantastic, I liked so much. Congrats Jonathan, your blog is the number 1 like Roger. I follow your blog from Guatemala in Central America.

    1. Cheers Vicky!

      Oh I bet that Simon match was tense live, I remember watching it on TV, 2 set lead playing well then the Frenchman hits back!
