Thank you for the warm welcome. I have joined at a good time for Davydenko, or maybe I haven't
Maybe joining at this time will mean more display of dislike toward him? Honestly I can't understand why such a nice guy would recieve such bad crap, he is hardly an arrogant and rude player who deserves people talking negatively about him as a person.
I have always found that Nik has never recieved the appreciation he deserves, and it is only the people within tennis that truly understand and appreciate his game.
I will certainly be checking out the players forums, I think this will be the most interesting section and also far less argumentative. Thanks for the advice
GM doesn't need any excuse to hate on people as you will soon discover! Whether you are young (Murray), older (Federer), extrovert (Djokovic), introvert (Davydenko), a big server (Roddick), a "ballbasher" (Tursunov) or a "moonballer" (almost any clay courter!) they will find a way to hate you! At the moment Djokovic is the main butt of their hatred, and there is more respect (albeit grudging) for Kolya than I have seen for a while - but some people live to hate
I will admit here I am not entirely blameless in this regard, and have a paranoic dislike of Nadal for lots of reasons
- but at least I don't start endless threads bashing him on GM - I just try and ignore him!
Good luck with it anyway - and nice talking to you. I need to cook dinner now!
