"J Block" is going a bit overboard in these matches.

They were doing it against Nadal, and now against Robredo. I hope that people watching in other countries don't think that we're all like that.

Cheering for your favorite is fine, but these people are cheering Robredo's errors, faults, and double faults... and even taunting him. Have a heart, the guy should have beaten your fave in three sets and had a major let down, I don't think he needs to hear it from you.

All I can say is that they better not pull that kind of crap against Agassi, or they'll be booed out of the stadium.

Re: "J Block" is going a bit overboard in these matches.

Today it's mainly them doing all the job, they were far worse when Blaked played Nadal, but the whole stadium was highly pro-Blake. I guess they thought this match was gonna be a lot easier.

I'll be waiting until they do that against Agassi, I don't think it'll be pretty, the rest of the stadium probably will shut them up.

Re: "J Block" is going a bit overboard in these matches.

I've never liked americans/american crowds. They are too one sided and are a mile from overboard. Yelling not cheering after first serve faults,double faults. It's stupidity.
Thats why I like the Australian Open and not the us open

Another Game for Milos

I agree. I'm an American and I believe in fair play. These people are in corporate boxes and not where players friends and families usually sit. That says it all for me. If they pull that crap against Agassi they'll be thrown out.

Re: "J Block" is going a bit overboard in these matches.

Oh Hater...Let it go! Why do we hold tennis to this "UNCHEERABLE" Standard? Cheering makes it fun and enjoyable, entertaining...all that good stuff.

Leave the J-Block alone. No different from the Brazilians, or Chileans...i personally love the Davis Cup Atmosphere.

I had no problem with them today. The stadium was lethargic after Agassi, and so was I. They pumped it up.

"What kind of shape am I in now? Well round is a shape." said Roddick with a laugh. "I had a very detailed retirement plan, and I feel like I've met every aspect of it: a lot of golf, a lot of carbs, a lot of fried food, and some booze, occasionally — I've been completely committed ... The results have shown."

Re: "J Block" is going a bit overboard in these matches.

the whole crowd has been piss poor.
there is screaming when the players are throwing the balls up to serve.
they are too noisy during the points.
they are screaming abuse at players.

fine, support your favourite in a massively over-the-top manner, but at least shut your dumb asses up during the points!

Clarify why I am a hater?

And I even stated in my post that cheering is fine. No doubt you would have been one of those blue-shirted morons, so whatever.

What do brazilians and chileans have to do with anything in this thread? He talked about the J-Block, not americans in general.

Davis Cup atmosphere is nice, during Davis Cup or a football match.

There is a difference between cheering for your player and jeering and yelling insults at the opponent, which is what the J-Block has done in addition to just cheering James on. In my opinion, hurling insults and jeering the other player goes too far and is frankly, just rude.

Cheering and jeering are two different things and the J-Block has been doing a little too much of the latter here and at the Pilot Pen for my taste.

I think the louder the crowd is, the more entertaining it is to watch on TV...

But that's just me
