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.
