Exactly what I feel. Couldn't sum it up any better!

If Federer was ranked 102 in the world instead of 2, I'd probably love him to death. All the self-promotion and sore loser stuff which is part and parcel of being so successful have made him a bit of a brat as a person.

I think Rafa for sure is the best when it comes to humility. Lots of people say its just an act, but certainly I believe he and Nole are really very genuine, and handle the success much much better than Roger. We'll see what Andy is made of if he wins some more slams.

Listen up, this is a true story.

I've hugged Fabio Fognini before!

Nalbandian is lazy, and quite a nasty guy from what I gather. He has a beautiful game.

Let me try and put this another way.

If I was on a train, with limited internet access, so I could only follow the scoreboard. The first players I would look for would be my favourites. So Goffin, Stebe, Bedene, Žemlja, Seppi, Fognini, Simon, Granollers, Berankis etc. The list could go on for quite a while. The likes of Federer and Nalbandian who I like to watch play, wouldn't be near the top.

However if I was at home, and could watch the tennis live online or on the tv, the first names I would look for would be Federer, Nalbandian, Melzer, Wawrinka, Stepanek, Haas etc. That's because they all are great to watch for one reason or another. I'm not really a fan of any of these guys, though. I think I can like to watch them without being a fan? Maybe not.
As Raquel said, we love to tease here. So it's perfectly OK if you like to watch Fed plays or even cheer for him (even when he plays vs Nole as long as not here ) star cheered for Nadal in all their matches and we still love her.

George, remember when you got me.confused about your sexuality? well..... hugging Fognini?

Ok, joking he doesn't seem like a nice guy, seems very arrogant and mean. But I don't know mc about him. Lee, on the other hand, cannot stand him.

Now you are trying my patience!!!!

Fog is the only player I had an instant dislike. No reason other than the smirk on his face.

Fabio is really nice, we chatted for five minutes about Genoa CFC, his favourite football team!

And this was in the middle of a practice session.

Anyway, all this stuff about me liking Roger didn't even come from me. You guys instantly believed I'm a Fedtard. It isn't true.

Still appalled.



I like Murray's game, but don't care for him. Absolutely love Nadal and Nole's games.

I think I can't be objective. If someone has a crap personality, it's hard for me to enjoy their games. It spills over into their conduct on the court. I, however, do not think Federer is the genius he's cracked up to be. He's excellent for sure, but for me, McEnroe was a genius at the game. But, look at people who have really changed the approach to tennis. Do you think Federer has done that? Or is it because he plays a more classical game that the old timers give him praise?

It's ok, dear. it's just a recurrent joke between us. We had to joke about it but this thread isn't a dictatorship. Most of the days, anyways.

don't you.worry about it. You like whoever you want, just never cheer for Federer on this thread or against Nole on this Forum. that's it.

I say this as a die hard Nadal fan and there is at least one other Nadal fan who agrees with me, Nole is the most gracious loser. Rafa has said that it's always more difficult for the higher ranked person to lose, and he's experienced that now. But, Nole seems to be handing it pretty well so far.

Fog has a great butt. I saw the video where his towel falls off as Rafa walks by.
