I don't think it was any of the stuff u mentioned. Think about it, he was going through a lean patch in his career winning only 1 of the grand slams last year. But this year he really worked hard to reach the finals of a major grand slam only to end up with the runners-up shield. And in addition he was on the verge of rewriting record books. He really wanted it. He may be a champion but he is a human.

Hi there. I actually kinda felt sorry for Roger when he burst into tears during the Australian Open awarding ceremeony - and that's saying something considering that I'm a die hard Rafa fan. Putting myself into his shoes, I don't think I could blame him for being overcome with such an emotion to the point of being pushed to tears. I think that Rafa was gracious enough to try to comfort Roger by telling him that he is still a champion, that he has accomplished so much so far, etc. My only gripe would be that Roger bursting into tears has kinda, sorta become quite a scene stealer and I think that Rafa's feat of winning his first hard court Grand Slam and becoming the first Spanish player to win at Melbourne should have been received with more fanfare.

I think it was both - touchy and wussy. But I don't want to censure him because I know how hard every sports man has to work to reach good results. Crying is emotion usually showed when you feel emotionally too good or too bad. I think he had a right to fall in tears. Even it looked a bit wussy.
