Re: Why do people around here seem to dislike James Blake and Tommy Robredo so much?
Get the impression people may have lost money on Blake over the years, but other than that & the fact he's inconsistent & a bit of a choker, I don't get it at all: he's good to watch when he's on and seems pleasant & articulate. Of course Rafatards hate him because he's got a better record against Nadal than against Fed, but who cares about them? As for Robredo, he does most things well but nothing exceptionally well, which makes him boring, & it's annoying to see a boring player in the Top 10, as he was for a while, but this is no reason to *hate* him.
