Real boxing fans wouldn't care. Only casual fans care about knockouts, the real fans are more interested in technique. Its not the same on MTF here, people have a very immature mindset towards tennis.

I love all aspects of TENNIS.

Federer - The Artist
Murray - The Tactician
Nalbandian - The Ballstriker
Llodra - The S/V
