I don't start threads on GM.
I was just rather surprised. He kept throwing his towel on the ground instead of handing it the ball kid and rolling his eyes when he didn't get his towel fast enough. I was rather surprised as I hadn't seen him do that before.
I wasn't suggesting that it was a fan dealbreaker.
Merely reporting what I saw. It WAS really hot out there. Maybe he was just a little grumpy.
He's always a little grumpy on the court. although he doesn't throw the towel on the floor to disrespect the ballkids or anything - I doubt he'd care if they left it there
The eyerolling and general impatience, though...yeah...and he can be quite shouty calling for the towel if they don't hear him properly - though, sometimes his voice doesn't exactly carry.
He's a moody little **** at times. At Davis Cup we held up a sign, sat directly opposite where he was with the team, asking him to give us a wave (this is a group organised from his own website forum). He looked up, saw it, looked down, and never looked up again until the change of ends was over and play resumed. Miserable shit
