Did Rusedski receive a warm reception in his home town?

Just wondering if the great Yankee Brit got booed in Montreal, or whether all has been forgotten and he is just another tennis player now.

He didn't get booed. People didn't cheer like crazy for him (not like they do with Nadal, Agassi, Roddick etc.) but he was received warmly for a change.

Yankee Brit? Canuck Brit, unless I somehow missed his American connection.

Erm, Mary was BORN in Canada but didn't grow up here, so I hope you're kidding Mista.

I lack direction.

Chocking makes me sad.

hahaha. Poor Greg, thinking he's important enough to be some major traitor, and the Canadians don't even care. Canada wins.

Re: Did Rusedski receive a warm reception in his home town?

After 10 years I would hope people finally moved on.

About time. As much as I don't like him, the resentment toward Rusedski was really disturbing. In 95 I understand because Rusedski did some immature things and it just happened recently, but after that?

Re: Did Rusedski receive a warm reception in his home town?

RDS and TSN still show his matches and talk about him saying he probably would have done just as well playing for Canada, which I think is crap since they don't seem to fund sports as well as other countries

the people that didn't know who Rusedski is probably don't follow tennis much

didn't know Rusedski could speak french too

his reception with the media is not as bad as it used to be, from what I've seen on TV anyway...

Mary Pierce from what I understand is just born in Canada (montreal ?) and Rusedski is not a Yankee (I can't remember his background but his last name should be a hint? )

how would you like it if Andre Agassi represented Armenia instead of the US??? Would you not hold a grudge for more than 10 years?

Not only is she born in the French speaking region of Canada, yes Montréal, Québec but her mother Annick is French too.

Why would anyone hold a grudge for that? As I understand it, Rusedski has British citizenship and lives there. Whats the problem with him representing GB then?

Re: Did Rusedski receive a warm reception in his home town?

Rusedski is of Polish descent I think. From what I saw of the crowd, they didn't boo him.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".
