The buzz of men tearing up after GOATs' last match, as Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal, and the rest of the tennis world, was as much about tennis as it was about men tearing up.It was also about tennis, the beginning of good times for men.Everyone loves a good cry, whether male or female.Just that men do it less often, especially in public.The GOAT, epic rival Rafael Nada, former world number one Novak Djokovic, a slew of tennis stars, the stadium, and the rest of the world everyone sheds tears unashamedly.The Laver Cup's tear fest sent a strong note outlining: It's fine, boys and girls, go ahead and cry.THERE IS NOTHING LIKE A GOOD CRY, according to Arjuna awardee Gaurav Natekar, but I don't think Nadal should cry.Federer may have let go a few times, but we've never seen Nadal cry. Both my father (Arjuna awardee Nandu Natekar) and I have shed tears personally.I lost my dad a year and a half ago, and I am still breaking down today.The two-time Asian Games gold medalist adds that there's nothing better than a good cry, and dismisses the old saying about strong men not crying.He believes that women are inherently stronger due to their ability to let go of unneeded emotions. According to biochemist William H Frey, the number is 5.3 times higher for women.Being strong is a strength, according to former player Arjun Goutham, who says being tough is beneficial in sport and in life, particularly for men.Allerdings, it isn't just about feelings that are suppressed.Our intellectual growth is hampered, as a result of this, which makes us less imaginative. However, Goutham says that there has been a gradual change in culture, adding that showing vulnerability is a strenuous skill, and that I have learnt to cry and release trapped emotions over the years.A good cry can be a powerful form of therapy.Natekar also hopes that women and society will teach their husbands that it's okay to cry.-Suruchi Kapur Gomes, a lawyer from Delhi, is a writer.
