Horrible result for tennis

Unconvincing looking performance from Robredo

So someone recently informed me that my sig was empty. Said I needed a life affirming motivational quote by a positive role model like Einstein or Oscar Wilde...

Here's a tip. Don't regret nothin'. You ain't got the time. Before you know it, you'll be 60 something years old giving free advice to some cheapskate runt... Then going home and regretting it.

-Drunk 60 something at Poundland

I don't know how you can call anyone boring when you enjoy watching Nishikori

Robredo can be pretty boring, but at least he has more personality than the likes of Nishikori and Berankis and is one of the few players to still use the single handed backhand, and pretty well too.

Ah could be because Kei is an extremely attacking player despite his height, while Boredo is the epitome of a pusher: his whole game is pretty much getting the ball back in play.

Not to mention being a jerk doesn't qualify as having personality. His disgraceful antics have not been forgotten ie Barcelona final vs Gaudio and Hamburg semis vs Ancic.

Against Gaudio in the Barcelona final, he took an MTO when serving for the match and 15-40 down (so two break back points for Gaudio) despite no sign whatsoever of an injury and then came back moving like a rabbit to serve out the match. Good thing that a few months later Gaudio got the big one, winning Roland Garros.

Against Ancic, it was just poor sportmanship, not admitting to an extremely obvious double bounce in a crucial moment of the match.

But there are plenty more examples, like his match vs Kohli. People shouldn't mistake being a jerk for having personality.

You think Nishikori is an extremely attacking player and Ferrer is a defensive pusher, you really don't know anything about tennis, do you ?

What does his height have to do with anything? Since when did being under 6' automatically merit a passive style? There have been many powerful and flashy players in history that have been short. Look at Rios, Agassi, Grosjean, Nalbandian, Ilie, Coria, Clement, Benjamin Becker, Arazi, O. Rochus, Puerta, Davydenko, Costa, Corretja etc. and even the likes of Hewitt could/can play aggressively and approach the net with certainty.

Robredo's whole style is not pushing, that's utter nonsense if I've ever heard it. Just because a man doesn't possess lots of finishing power doesn't mean he's a pusher. He approaches the net far too much to be considered a pusher, for one, and he tends to go for the lines often on anything that's not within a couple of feet or so of the baseline on his forehand as well as possessing a good drop shot. I don't even like him much at all, but he's far from a pusher, especially when your judgement of attacking tennis is pretty lenient considering your comment about Nishikori of all people playing "extremely attacking tennis for his height".

Personality good or bad, he has one.
