Care to translate then...

I really don't understand how players claim Fed is false. I mean he has a posh image but he himself says he likes it and claims he chooses his sponsors carefully. If people choose to believe things about him that are not true, then so be it .

It's also funny the issue of prize money is the topic again when Wayne Ferreira recently claimed Fed was involved in making the slams pay more from way back in 2003 but because the ATP adopted a similar position the movement stopped temporarily (it's in a NY article by Christopher Clarey where he talks about the consecutive appearances at Slams).

Yes, because they were all major cash cows and had multi-million contracts. Sometimes I wonder where your logic comes from, AJ.

If some unknown talent came out of some random tiny country (no chance to win DC) and won 20 slams, no one would give a single shit if that player didn't have DC. The fact is, success in DC is largely determined by what country you come from or play for in the first place, which most players haven't had any control over.
