*going to VB
's fan experience section*
Just kidding just kidding, this is my fave section on VB
(and the only one I read). Always nice to read about other people's experiences.
Would never have thought Malisse was nice, he's a wacko on court and kinda insulted Marat once so ....
Hello to Star too, keep us posted!
Oh, Malisse. So sweet and nice and human off the court.
Malisse gets his share of attention and he's very happy to oblige (he was so nice to everybody) but it's nothing compared with Nadal.
I have heard many times that Malisse is so utterly nice off court but it's another thing to experience it yourself. The fact that he was so sweet to me was one of the highlights of this weekend + as I said before, he looks so much better in real life. I'd call him good-looking after having seen him. The current picture on the ATP website is criminal
to be continued....
I think it's different in person because you can see how genuine he is. It's one thing to read about it, but in person you can see there's nothing false about his interest in others. I've not seen another pro tennis player this way. Rafa might be like that, but there is too much frenzy around him for him to show it.
Report coming up (sorry, it's a bit long
As I said, there were many, many men there for Rafa as well. It was a mixtures of people. One group was a bunch of men in their 50s, coming from The Netherlands and one of them told me that they were ready to follow Rafa everywhere.
I've seen this too. Rafter had this frenzy around him too, but most of it was women. With Rafa, it's all ages and sexes. People want to be close to him. It's that charisma thing that's so hard to define. I think Roger has as many and even more dedicated fans, but maybe his remote demeanor doesn't inspire this same frenzy. I don't know. It's hard to define and quite something to see in person.
