I'm pretty sure most players deep down want conditions to suit his agenda. At least the guy speaks his mind. At the risk of sounding repetitive I bet Federer would get love and attention if he started making similar comments, but because it's Nadal he gets hate, no?
Federer already draws enough adoring lynch mobs whenever he
speaks his mind. You don't have to worry about that. In fact, 'Rogi' got torn into itty bitty pieces when he once dared to opinionate that clay is a sort of second-rate surface that requires a one-dimensional skill set. According to the clay-lovers Rogi's innuendo was a sin of the highest magnitude, deserving of capital punishment or worse.. So enough already with the faux pity for Nadal's legal privileges.
Look nobody is questioning Nadal's inalienable right to free speech. It is the content of that speech that we also have an inalienable right to question, and that is what we're doing, thank you very much.
