Alex is one of the friendliest players out there.

Alex is a very smart tennis player.

Alex speaks several languages, again showing his higher intelligence!

Alex is "worth it" as he said in his L'Oreal TV ad from Spanish TV... "Y yo lo valgo"

Alex has a great sense of humour in any language

Alex can win on clay, outdoor hardcourt and indoor.

Alex has won the year-ending championship, in Hannover 98.

Alex beat Agassi, Sampras and the then French Open champ Moya to win that championship.

... more to come!
Because he's got a very nice brother (Ivan)

Because he always seems to be so friendly to fans

Because he's got the most beautiful eyes in the ATP tour

Because of his great backhands

Because he says good and nice things about his opponent very often

Because he's got great taste in music and movies

Because he could beat Sampras on grass (DC 2002)

Thank you Hybrid, you are very huggable yourself and yes all those reasons you have stated plus others are all very good reasons to like Corretja.

Here I found something from my travels to the Aus Open in Jan. It's slightly edited, I will post all of the stuff related to Alex during this tournament.

This was during the days before the tournament.

Corretja and Gaudio were both practicing, how great it was for me as I happen to like both of them . It was a bit warm so I sat in the shade and watched them play, and David (Mallorcan friend) was telling me about the Davis Cup when Argentina should have won. He likes Gaudio style of play, but doesn't like him too much. They were hitting quite well, though Gaudio seemed to have a problem of moving forward to finish the points.

After training I spoke with Gaudio for about five minutes, I met him before and having a distinctive appearance has its advantages. Then I spoke with Corretja for some time as well, before he had to have a shower, he is definiely one of the nicest guys on tour, and hopefully he can do some good work again, bu it will be tough.

Alex as usual had the better of Gaudio even in the practice sets.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

Re: Why do we love Alex?

the first match i saw him play was when he defeated thomas enqvist in indian wells 2000. a great match which showcased the speed and tenacity of his former self.

i did recently watch him play sargisian in the first round of the u.s. open. he imploded, launching balls and breaking a racket which he through into the crowd.

i love his grinding spirit, creativity, footwork, and of course his solid backhand.

i hope he can get it together and make one more run.

if only he could stop pulling up on that forehand of his...

Re: Why do we love Alex?

Here's another reason:

Alex has the "legendary" thighs... [no more comment on that one!]
