Re: What you dislke about your fav player?

Federer: his inability to acknowledge that the other guy played better, especially with Djokovic and Berdych.

Nalbandian: he cares too little about being a great player.

Gonzalez: he retired

Safin: he retired

Re: What you dislke about your fav player?

murray needs to stop being a sour faced little plook

sampras needs to teach players these days how to properly serve and win grand slams, instead of playing golf

edberg should lock up modern players in padded cells until they can properly volley

tsonga needs to learn how to return a serve. and hit a backhand

That he's retired.

"What kind of shape am I in now? Well round is a shape." said Roddick with a laugh. "I had a very detailed retirement plan, and I feel like I've met every aspect of it: a lot of golf, a lot of carbs, a lot of fried food, and some booze, occasionally — I've been completely committed ... The results have shown."

Murray's inability to convert match and break points.

Rafa's inability to fix his knees.

Yeah, except that he actually got some right at Wimbledon 1.0 and Wimbledon 2.0 this year - I nearly keeled over in disbelief!

Re: What you dislke about your fav player?

It surprises me that Ferru can't speak better English, because I've heard him give interviews in Italian. He likes to read and study, so it surprises me that he hasn't learned to speak better.

Re: What you dislke about your fav player?

Sampras - For getting old and letting grass court mugs win Wimbledon

Fed - Press conference muggery

Henman - Not being the Brit to end the Wimbledon final streak/ being a mental midget in general.

Re: What you dislke about your fav player?

Murray - Being too human for Tennis. Needs to take some lessons from his superhuman thighs.

Raonic - Not developing the tactical nous that makes a top 5 player yet.

Dolgopolov - entertaining me too much with his randomness

Tomic - Bernie T doesn't even have a rap album yet

Oliver Golding - The kid can get frustrated mid-rally. Needs to realise he can't win every point, especially at this stage in his professional career.

So someone recently informed me that my sig was empty. Said I needed a life affirming motivational quote by a positive role model like Einstein or Oscar Wilde...

Here's a tip. Don't regret nothin'. You ain't got the time. Before you know it, you'll be 60 something years old giving free advice to some cheapskate runt... Then going home and regretting it.

-Drunk 60 something at Poundland

Re: What you dislke about your fav player?

Murray - the abuse he sends toward his players' box. It's been curbed a bit with Lendl around but there are still times you wonder about how long the others have put up with it.

Ferrer - in my opinion, he's the most attractive player off court. But you cannot tell based on his on-court appearance (on the ladies side, Zvonareva is the same way). Agree about how his limited English, as endearing as it is, ends up hiding his intelligence.

Gasquet - when you can tell the exact moment he's checked out of a match. Also has an on-court vs off-court appearance issue, like Ferrer. Except while Ferrer's on-court style seems functional, Gasquet ends up looking goofy between points.

Andy Murray: 2012 Olympic gold and silver medalist. US Open Champ. Wimbledon champ. Never been prouder of him.

The Brian Baker Story. Proof that truth is stranger than fiction... until Hollywood buys the rights and proceeds to keep screwing the script up.

Re: What you dislke about your fav player?

Roddick:
1. That he drastically altered his fundamental playing style.
2. The firing of Brad Gilbert and subsequent hiring of Dene Goldfine
3. The occasional deference he showed towards Fed.

Murray:
1. The Nadal fanboyism
2. His occasional regression into utter passivity.

Safin:
1. His failure to be more of a presence over the course of the last decade.
2. The periods in his career where he seemed so disconnected from the game.

Each of them: I don't mind their respective on-court attitudes in general. I've never felt embarrassed by or for them during any rant or confrontation save for certain exceptions (Roddick vs. that poor USO lineswoman in 2010). But I seriously hate it if and when they've allowed their emotional outbursts to hinder them in any way, which has been unfortunately abundant.
