I feel that it is perfectly normal for them to have such sentiments. I believe that sportsmen are highly competitive by nature. As such, they prepare extremely hard for every game or competition they have by consistently practicing very hard. After all, it is only reasonable to assume that every athlete or sportsman competes with winning in mind. Thus, it is naturally understandable why some sportsmen become very sentimental or emotive after losing a match. You could perhaps just imagine the level of training they've went through, the sweat and blood they've expended to prepare for such a game, and the amount of sacrifices that they have to make just to prepare for a game, which they will only eventually lose. Just by merely thinking of it, I could already feel how heart-wrenching, ego-crushing, and dream-shattering losing may be. How much more for these sportsmen who actually felt the heavy hand of defeat--of losing? It is, thus, only fair to understand why some sportsmen become sentimental after losing, especially if you know where they're coming from.
