You have to love Brits. So proper, so polished, so personable.
Wimbledon has always been a prime example…until this year.
Novak Djokovic, the defending champion, beat Roger Federer in Sunday’s final.
And Wimbledon had the bad manners to telegraph their choice for the trophy. Both before and after the match, their social media feeds were full of Federer — waxing poetic on the possibility of his eighth title, and openly weeping at his eventual defeat.
In contrast, Serena Williams’ win in the ladies’ championship was celebrated without question or sadness for those she felled along the way.
I expect more from you, Wimbledon. Remember — even Federer had to defeat favorites in his early years at the tourney.
Today’s top men’s seeds deserve the same respect.
