This is why he's so particularly popular in Houston, actually. When he played the clay-courts one year (either 2001 or 2002), his semifinal match was really badly rained out and to all the fans that stayed to watch his match when it was finally played, I think it was like around 30-50 fans, he bought them all tickets to the final the next day. And because it's the same people that go to the Houston events time after time because they're members of the club there, they've really grown to love him and follow him grow up and feel like there's a personal connection. When I was at the claycourts this past April people were still talking about this
Anyway, I think his personality is great and, like all my favorite players, I like how he shows his emotions on court. The only thing I don't like is the bull with the umps, I wish he would grow up and get away from that behavior. It's stupid and it makes him look like a jerk, and it doesn't help his game at all.
