I went home for lunch and was watching a part of the fourth set and I just KNEW it would end like this.
Malisse is a pathetic loser. If I go to a tennis tournament, his matches are the ones I don't want to see. I saw him play once at AO2003 against Nalbandian. He had a very bad attitude, unpleasant towards the ballkids.
Yes, he is talented but he is lazy. He does not change his game. He should play in a more offensive way but prefers to stand 5 meters behind his baseline.
Pfff, I would not even have watched part of his match is the only alternative had not been Grosjean which means unsporty, partisan French crowd.
Malisse will make a good living from his tennis since he wins a match from time to time but he could do so much more with his talent but he's almost 26, he won't get any better.
And believe me, he will become more pathetic as he becomes older. He is just one of these people who do not grow up, who basically remains a teenager. Now it is a bit dumb to behave like a teenager when you are 25 but if you still behave like that when you are 50, it's really pathetic.
