73. For convincing 2 sceptical guys in 1999 that he was a man to cheer for.
74. Personally thanked us for his support, when it was only 3 of us there.
75. Winning Barcelona without losing a set.
76. Overcome crippling self doubt to win a Grand Slam title.
77. For making me more interested in learning Spanish.
78. For attracting a lot of new fans through his naturalness.
79. For being very honest about his failings.
80. For making me wanting to continue cheering him on, in spite of all the chokes that he has performed.
81. Never uses gamesmanship to win matches or to throw off the opponents.
82. Speaks English very well.

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".

90. For being thankful by slapping the fans' hands as soon as the final match at RG 04 completed.

91. For what he said after winning RG 04, "Thank you, all the crowd here that they support me so much. The first two sets I was like so scared, you know (laughter). Because of all this crowd, I guess that I started to fight a little bit more and I came back, (you know). Thank you

102. For being humble when admitting that in a backhand competition between Gabriela Sabatini and himself, Gaby would win
103. For deciding to leave the hard feelings between him and Coria behind
104. For being from Latin America like me and making me proud
105. For the sweet look in his eyes! Come on! Hehe
106. For his taste in music [U2, Jamiroquai, etc]
107. Because he seems to like wearing green off court [I love green ^^]
