Why does MTF hate Almagro?

I though you guys like the attacking game style. I've read he is ugly, has bad attitude, behavior etc.. But seriously, these things are more important than his game??

Never ever give up

mental midget
awful attitude
general douche

basically the spanish roddick without "the looks" the ladies go for

God is Love. To know Love is to know God. So ask yourself if you hold any hate for another in your heart how can you have room for Love, room for God

Re: Why hate MTF Almagro?

he's not pretty enough to have the female fanbase that several much more detestable mugs on here have.

I don't have an opinion of him either way really. He's a bit of a dick and I'm no way a fan but I like watching him on clay. He's a mug on every other surface though which doesn't really help his appeal. generally has an awful attitude on court too.

That doesn't explain the sort of hatred he's getting on MTF, though and this applies to many players who aren't getting as much hatred.

It's disproportional to his tennis results. The higher up, the more haters a player gets on here but Almagro?

Re: Why hate MTF Almagro?

As soon as Almagro has a relevant win, his fans will begin to pop up like you wouldn't believe.

Re: Why hate MTF Almagro?

he's said to be a bit of a dick but i don't hate him at all. in point of fact, i quite like his game. he probably has the prettiest backhand in the top 20.

Yeah the ATP made a sacrifice a decade ago and decided to buy a domain, start a site and publish the rankings every now and then. It's amazing what technology is capable of doing for us these days.

I honestly don't know that many players with such appalling attitude on court, in all respects mind you, from sportsmanship to body language. Beats me how anyone can like this guy (despite having quite a game, at least on clay).

As for the second part, I think the chokes like the one against Nadal raise his profile significantly, though personally, for me it's all about his demeanor. I have high tolerance for headcases, but low for dicks.

That's part of it, yes. There are basically two matches that increased the hatred to disproportional levels IMO.

One against Safin in Valencia in 2006 and the other one against Nadal in Roland Garros in 2008 (6-1, 6-1, 6-1). The Almugro nickname really kicked in after that match.

I don't agree that he always chokes against Nadal (as some like to suggest). He put up a great fight in last year's Roland Garros and that's forgotten to only remember the bad results because the triple 6-1 sticks.

Re: Why hate MTF Almagro?

I don't know why Almagro hates MTF, probably a mutual thing.
