Re: Why are ballbashers more highly regarded than tacticians like Murray?
Because it's more difficult being a successful attacking player in this shit-slow court era than having a defensive game. Case closed.
I have a more relevant question: if the OP really believes in what he is writing here about smart tennis being entertaining, why does he hate Simon and call him a pusher when he has a game similar to Murray's?

We should be appreciative of Federer though, because we will never see anything like him again. The fact he can still compete for slams ever after the erosion of his physical skills is really a greater testament to the natural talent he has than the period of time when he was dominating the tour.
