I've watched him since 2002, and in all that time, the circus they call Davis Cup in Chile has called him every name in the book.
I feel the same way Nicofan. So much pressure on him and whatever he does, the press finds fault. I mean, if its true Hans wanted to play Paul instead, I think the alleged reaction would be understandable (and I'm sure I would have a similar reaction if it were me). So whether the account is true or not, it really is immaterial for me. I guess I just hate to hear negative accounts of him (or anybody) that are basically heresay.
