Criticize your favorite players

This is the opposite of the "name something good about the players you dislike the most." I'm really interested in some posters' thoughts in particular.

Roddick -- can be a bit of a jerk when he's losing and a bit of a jerk when he's winning
Gasquet -- should man up and grow a pair
Nadal -- should really be called out more on the time he takes between serves. He's not tired so that's not an excuse
Korolev -- should fire his dad and get a real coach
Blake -- he's not really as nice in person as he seems

Is Blake not nice then? I always thought he was meant to be lovely.

I edited it. He's not as nice as you would think but he's not a dick.

I was thinking of excluding him in the thread title.

"R" will think it's funny, he has actually got a sense of humour. Not that he shows it often enough on here.

I do this all the time.

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".

Hewitt plays well when he's fired up, but quite often goes overboard, thus plays like crap.

Nalbandian, more tennis, less everything else.

Monfils, tactics doesn't hurt and neither does coming inside the court

Seppi, when you lead with two breaks, yes it is possible to continue like this till the end of the set and starting match from 1-4 is overrated.

Labadze, grow up, you are almost 30.

I will burn
And you will die...

Re: Criticize your favorite players (excluding richie21 since all we know what you th

Seppi - Second serve.

Nieminen - No self belief against the top players and very poor second serve.

Vicente - No law in coming over the ball.

Horna - Needs to fire up on court.

Malisse - Make the inner anger work for you.

del Potro - Don't always be the same, change a bit, you know not play a DC final injured.

Verdasco - Claudio should be in the circus.

Almagro - Yes, the head is as big as a planet, but it's actually possible for him to win matches on hardcourt.

Gaudio - The tanks, when i's not his day.

Hernandez - Too generous, needs to be more selfish.

Berdych - Variation does not mean which hand you wank with.

Tipsarevic - Got to win more matches to play the big matches, that he loves playing.

Luczak and Russell - Not ruthless enough on court, when it counts.

Koubek - Should never have given the yellow shorts away and the 2008 AO match with Mathieu, should never have been lost.

Andreev - Should be paid yearly, by the amount of backhands he hits.

Acasuso - More dope needed.

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".

Djokovic gets too easily distracted by the crowd and things going on around him. He loses concentration easily, and when he's under pressure his first serve deserts him, and his body language gives away the stress he's feeling. He needs to focus more and cut out all the outside distractions.

Safin - self-destructing
Malisse - even more so
Coria - let alone him

Grosjean - great talent, but too much dependant on his forehand; plus his heydays seem to be over
Tsonga - sometimes tends to go for too much
Gasquet - often does not go for as much as he should
Federer - no way I am going to criticize the maestro

Can be a bit of an asshole, disrespectful to some extent, sometimes plays too passively although not anymore.

Federer- He sometimes loses his cool and makes dumb errors for no apparent reason. And chokes against Nadal a lot.

Gasquet- He uses the wrong tactics and the wrong times.
