The best way to analyse this is to forget about big 3 losses against each other and to analyse the reaction when one of them loses to a journeyman or someone you wouldn't expect. Then see how much hate that particular player receives. Then you get your answer.
Simple. As. That.
Indeed. Your avatar provides a very good example. I don't remember Fedfans calling for karma when Tsonga was not doing well last year or lost against RF after his win at Wimbledon. I do remember Rafitards still foaming at the mouth because Soderking was too strong in 2009 at the FO.
