Well if other people can put Andre and Andy, why not Marat?

Maybe we should have a communal rolleyes session for everything we don't like.

Maybe I should get myself dizzy for people carelessy chucking Ferrero out of the top 5 (it's okay, this happened last year too and I just bumped the thread up a year later to giggle )

I lack direction.

Chocking makes me sad.

why not Marat? Because its not true. No way is Marat the dirtiest player. Anyone who thinks so obviously just hates his guts. Marat is one the nicest guys on and off the court. He shows respect and fair play towards his opponents in every match. Can you say the same about Agassi and Roddick??

It's not true IMO either. But I realized some time ago that not everyone sees things my way....

To some people Andre is one of the most gracious in the sport. I disagree quite strongly. He is indeed right up there - when he WINS. When he is losing he's something else

But that's just my opinion.. some people see things differently.

If people want to say Ferrero is a dirty little player, I could care less. Frankly it's so ridiculous I might giggle

I lack direction.

Chocking makes me sad.
