choose any of the reasons... that's just what comes first into my mind at 4am in the morning while not wasting more than 1 minute thinking/typing about it
That's just plain prejudice. If Federer went 'round the court all the time jumping and provoking his adversaries, I'd hate him too. You're trying to guess what people think and if you can really do that, please guess the results for the elections too.
He IS a claycourter and last week's results are just another proof of it.
