it is to del potro's credit that he didn't take the bait. he is a genuinely sporting guy, pity the rest of the top 10 generally aren't

No need for that. It seems most posters around here are very well acquainted with the intricacies of Roger's PR brain.

For example, ask dencod. He knows his stuff.

Of course his going to say that after he just beat the guy, It's so easy to be gracious after a win.
Lol, I always laugh when people start playing experts and try to convince others what they want to see is the truth. Hilarious, really. I suppose Roger should have been tripping Murray when they were walking around and trying to make him look like an idiot.

that's not at all what all of the people who approach him much more than us say, they say he's a very natural person, and I've read plenty of those things from many different persons, and he's very often in public situations, being the most interviewed and sollicited tennis player.

And in his interviews imo he showed that he valued sincerity a lot (which includes teasing which is a part of his character) which is a kind of character I can understand.

But I know that many people who have not approached him think many bad things about what he "really thinks" for whatever reason.

As for the negativity when Murray was with the medal, maybe it was just envy that he didn't have the gold medal ?

But the first truth is that, as many people said : Del Po is a guy who is universally appreciated by players, as Tsonga and Nadal (in a lesser extent for the latter) are ... and contrary to Berdych and Söderling for instance.

As for Murray being hated by Federer ? I think you haven't understood everything Fed has said about Murray in his carreer, the topic is much more complicated, Fed has always appreciated Murray a lot actually (contrary to Djokovic), he has just thought he doesn't use his talent the way Fed would like him to do, in an offensive way (and more importantly Murray is a touchy guy ... however less so than some of his fans like MuzzaLovah )

sometimes I had the impression that he was touchy, more sensitive than others, but anyway British newspapers and some of his fans like you have been very touchy about a few words you compiled which I all knew but one and which didn't have to be taken so harshly imo if you considered other very nice things Fed had said about Murray for a long time (and which Romismak seems to have also missed)

The way he says like, the Guy takes like 10 EVERY time





No for real, I think after their close matches / somewhat same personality he likes DelPo a lot. I don't think Fed and Rafa are friends of each other but they do respect each other and Fed definately doesn't hate Rafa.

I also feel that Fed thinks Murray is more talented than Djoko and always liked him better. The way he speaks about Murray now that he has won a slam (that he deserved it and he saw it coming) is also an indication that he likes Murray better.

Re: Does Federer like Del Potro better than Djokovic or Nadal?

Roger likes Delpo - many reasons, 1st Delpo likes Roger - idealizing him and so on, Roger seems to like people who are in public saying how Roger is best and so on - Delpo always is praysing Roger, i would say from top 10 Delpo is the one which Roger likes most

RAfa- well it was mentioned many times, thier rivalry and media attention - they seems to get along, but i think they are not friends, they respect each other as big name in tennis and tough competition, but that´s it

Nole - not much to say, incidents, like DC, MC yelling to Nole´s camp and everything, i think Nole always liked Roger and was trying to get along with him, just Roger doesn´t like him for many reasons, they now also respect each other, and i honestly beleive Roger like him more and just is aware of fact Nole is good and trying to get along, but nothing more

ANdy- well this changed dramatically, Murray few years ago had talks like he wants to beat Fed and so on, but lately really Roger´s interviews about Andy are surprisingly nice - someting happened there between them off court, maybe Andy is supporting Roger´s decisions on board, who knows, but Andy right now i think get along with Roger

Tsonga- Roger seems to be popular among frenchmen, he speaks their language, but don´t know another reason, but Jo and Roger are getting along i think

Berdych- not much to say - Roger´s big career losses came to Tomas when nobody was expecting them - Olympics, Wimby10, USO and so on.

Ferrer- Roger never lost to him, Ferrer is prasing him, but his limited english and personality don´t think make them friends, but at least we can say Roger doesn´t have vs David for sure

Don´t have time to go to more players, but from top guys Delpo is Roger´s favourite kid i think
