Mr Q., thanx for that nice quote of Andy. At least he has some good tastes.
Back to the topic, well.....I like David, because I like the way he plays, he is talented, he is a Latin American player, he makes tennis more enjoyable, he is a true fighter, he looks like a pretty friendly guy, very nice, kind, etc.; and I also like the way he say: "Vamos!"
Well I did post an answer on the GM thread (before it got wrecked!), but in answer to why I like David........well, like you've said already - he's a fighter and always gives 100% on court. I also love that he is very humble and hasn't forgotten his family, his old friends or his roots back in Cordoba. He shows a lot of respect to everyone, and he always has time and patience for his fans - no matter where he is or who they are. Also, whenever I've met him or seen him around, he always has a smile on his face - always happy and laughing. Maybe the time I really "fell in love" with him was watching him once at a tournament talking with a young guy who was obviously "mentally challenged" in some way - abut 20 years old but with a mental age of maybe 7 or 8. David was so sweet and gentle and patient with him - not because the cameras were rolling or anything, but just because that's the kind of guy he is. What he does is always from the heart and not just to impress the media or "look good" on TV.
As for the other things - well - I could write a book about them - but guess I'll stick with the smile, the blue eyes, the accent, the gorgeous body etc
Chances are, the cameras weren't on him at that moment, so he really could be himself....
