I honestly don't understand where all the hate is coming from either... I mean, if you don't like a player, fine - just ignore him! Why go out of your way to convince the world that he is the most evil person ever? And then, when players and tournament directors and what not actually say that he is NOT evil but very nice, friendly, hard-working, compassionate etc - people who actually know
him - then of course those people are crazy.
They're probably just jealous or lead very sad lives to be spending so much time and energy on someone they hate
I do hope he wins this title now! I always hope that of course, but now just a little more to make a point
