The same applies to Djokovic, Murray etc
I totally understand occasional banter between fans of the players but this site has an absolutely terrible community
It's a funny state of affairs that's for sure. I think sports fans, like elephants, have great memories and tend to harbour grudges for real or perceived grievances. The list of grievances is long: real or faked injuries robbing an opponent of real victory, MTOs, acrimonious post match interviews and heal sniping, ungracious comments and smack-talk between players, too much of a hug or no hug, a cold handshake or a stepanek handshake, etc.
And it's like this on most sports forums BTW. Our hockey forums here in Canada make MTF look like polite and refined high society.
What I find unfortunate is when members don't recognize when a player is playing within his abilities and label him a mug when he's beat by a better player.
