That's high coming from a Hewitt fan isn't it.

I'll be the first guy to admit that Hewitt isn't perfect and that he acted like a brat early on during his career. No excuses for the US Open incident. Difference is the guy matured as he got older while Boredo still uses his dodgy tactics and behaviour. He just wasn't in the spotlight as much as Hewitt was because he isn't a good enough tennis player. The average tennis fan isn't aware of all of Boredo's antics during the years as they are of Hewitt's.

Look, I'll give the guy some credit from a tennis perspective. He's coming back from a rough couple of years from injury and is having some success. Good on him. Let's just hope he keeps the cheating, mother bashing and threats to players welfare to a minimum...

Robredo hasn't been in the tour for almost 3 years and most of the incident being said are way back, where Hewitt was the no. 1 scumbag on court, almost every tennis player hated him. I don't think anyone was as hated in the locker room as Hewitt was in his prime of douchery. Hewitt's antics was beyond, maybe except what Kiefer did to Grosjean, with the racket throwing. And i don't hate Hewitt, i actually back him to win, so don't say i am a hater. I am just being fair.

I am not defending Hewitt's antics and I understand why he has haters. Difference is he never cheated like Boredo did/does. Yeah he got in the face of his opponents when he got himself fired up but honestly, I find nothing wrong with that. Most tennis players are too precious anyway, nothing wrong with a bit of verbal banter between two competitors within a sporting environment. But insulting players family, blatantly cheating on countless occasions and threatening to break necks is to far in any sort of sport. And if you want to go down the locker room route, I can guarantee you that Boredo is far from popular... Put it this way... If Boredo had the same amount of success and limelight that Hewitt has had in his career, you'd be hearing a lot more about his antics...

Well you are... I just find it dumb to bash someone for certain antics when your fave does the same, it's rampant in MTF...

Not really... You keep missing the point and the difference between them. Also someone has matured and someone hasn't. Anyway, we clearly aren't going to agree on this so let's just end this convo without one of us calling the other a mug

Ajde.

Honestly, don't people ever tire of this nonsense argument. It's simple: you like some famous people and dislike others, in 99% of cases it has nothing to do with jealousy. and I sure as shit am not jealous of Robredo's looks. Plus he has a boring game and sneaky personality.

Re: Why there is no Love for Robredo?

he beat murray at the 2010 hopman cup and consequently the british spin doctor machinery decided to put him out of business.

ASI Director-General Gautam Sengupta said the list of India's treasures held abroad was "too long to handle" and there was a need for a "diplomatic and legal campaign" for their restitution from institutions, including the British Museum, the Royal Collection and the Birmingham Museum and Art Gallery.

Apart from his unsportsmanlike behaviour, there is something smug about him.

Re: Why there is no Love for Robredo?

Majority of those who dislike Robredo base their opinion on one Youtube clip and a few posts here. Look hard enough and you find that majority of the players have gone through some more or less controversial events.
