Which is the Blake incident you mentioned?? I can't remember. And Ferrero seems like a cool guy, maybe I missed something
Cañas was still suspended. Agassi got the ATP to cover up a positive test, he was linked to doping as well, then there were plenty of classless antics. Catching a serve in a DC tie, mocking Karol Kucera's balltoss, plenty of bullshit with Agassi.

Just do a search here on Blake and Round Robin all the info is there if you really want to know the details. Ferrero there was the Davis Cup 2004 final where he didn't handle the fact he was passed over for Nadal in the singles and bitched throughout the tie.

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".

Fed at #5 is about right. As the best ever and a classy guy you will have legions of haters, but you don't want to be #1 either, as that means there really is something wrong with you.

Re: MTF 2012 Most Disliked Players of all time. Update Post #306

If everyone had bad reasons to hate a champ, why were Borg & Laver very loved & lauded?
even sampras got more respect than federina on grass courts. . LOL For Borg, Laver or sampras, it'd be a joke to roll around in front of his pigeon opponent like there was heroism in beating a clown.

There are no trolls for Borg & Laver, but Fed IS a long time fanboy troll for himself. No room for a fed fan to fit on his ego throne. Not even Agassi
& McEnroe have total unawareness of their own
Stupidous disease.

Most people are over age 25. They watch their fave players, so there's no fun in paying attention to federina's ego antics.

Wasn't the Round Robin "scandal" against Blake though? Why would people hate him for being shafted by Del Potro's retirement.

And I don't think Ferrero was unjustified there... Sure, in hindsight, it's easy to defend Nadal. But at the time, his coach had decided to put in a youth over him, a clay court major champion and proven DC hero, in a DC final. To each their own, though.

Actually it was all about Blake trying to change the rules to suit him and since he was the vice president behind Ljubo as an elected player rep, that's not something that should be done.

Ferrero was unjustified there of course he was. You play within a team and the coach says someone is playing instead of you don't have a hissy fit. As for hindsight I said it was right then or do you need forensic.

Draw for the DC Final: Nadal Gets the Nod

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".

Make that no, since your votes have already been counted.

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".

Delpo is not ultra religious, he dedicates his wins to his sister who died in a car crash at the age of three, he's been doing it since he was a boy and i never see you say anything about Nole or Baggy who always kiss their crosses.

What's with the growing anti-religious bigotry lately?

"What kind of shape am I in now? Well round is a shape." said Roddick with a laugh. "I had a very detailed retirement plan, and I feel like I've met every aspect of it: a lot of golf, a lot of carbs, a lot of fried food, and some booze, occasionally — I've been completely committed ... The results have shown."
