Well if other people can put Andre and Andy, why not Marat?

why not Marat? Because its not true. No way is Marat the dirtiest player. Anyone who thinks so obviously just hates his guts. Marat is one the nicest guys on and off the court. He shows respect and fair play towards his opponents in every match. Can you say the same about Agassi and Roddick??

Chloe le Bopper
12-03-2002, 08:52 AM
It's not true IMO either. But I realized some time ago that not everyone sees things my way....

To some people Andre is one of the most gracious in the sport. I disagree quite strongly. He is indeed right up there - when he WINS. When he is losing he's something else ;)

But that's just my opinion.. some people see things differently.

If people want to say Ferrero is a dirty little player, I could care less. Frankly it's so ridiculous I might giggle :D

What does the term "dirtiest player" mean?

If you mean a player who does not play fair? That would be Roddick and his drama queen antics; Lapenti almost beat him up for it. If you mean someone who is literally dirty I would pick Marat he has a tendency to throw himself about a court a bit like Becker in his heyday. If you mean sexually, it might be a tie between Marat and Tommy.
