Sore loser: rarely if ever acknowledges applause of crowd when leaving court after loss. Sometimes won't even look opponent in face during handshake (most recent ex.: Tursunov in Indy).
Smug winner: Davis Cup home ties last year. I think it inspired someone to start a thread of disgust here. Uses J. Block like its Davis Cup at the USO, when USO is a slam.
J-Block: They're horrible.
Ultimate Fedmug: didn't he win the honor?
Phoniness factor: especially re: "nice guy" image because of the above. Roddick is a tool on court (if only in the time-honored Connors tradition), but at least he's honest off court.
And yes, definitely the RR fiasco.
Otherwise, he's great!
I'll admit my view of James is tainted by the fact that he used to whup Rafa. But when James beat him at the USO, it was a thrill because James was coming into his own and he'd faced so many terrible crises. He was sporting in victory and in defeat. Not so often the case since.
But maybe he'll come around. He's doing a better job of rebounding during matches instead of pouting when he's behind.
