Mmm... but what would you prefer, a player who doesn't achieve anything but is regular all year and has a perfect attitude in all his matches, or a player who has high ups and very low downs but is likely to win something big ? I mean, it's the fact that he's so unpredictable and annoying at times that allows him to come out with a Bercy final or a Roland semi.
For myself I think it's not that bad that he tanks in Joburg or Marseille because those tournaments aren't that important for a player of his caliber. At the end of the careers there isn't much difference between the player who won 2 small tournaments and the one who won 6. You look at the grand slams. I don't mean it doesn't make me angry, and of course I want him to give his best in every tournaments and only lose when fighting, but he doesn't work like that.
-of course, the problem is for the people who pay to watch him tanking. Hey, I was dying watching him getting crushed by De Bakker in Maastricht
I wanted to hit him on the head, alright. But I'm not even sure he does consciously.
