I figured it was something like that (the chest bumps, that they're -- o noes -- American, etc.).
I always find it so amusing how a good portion of the Americans get this automatic flack or pegged as a jerk, yet these same people are some of the bigger/biggest philanthropists and/or advocates for the sport to support/better it -- more so than many others on the tour or sports players, in general. I mean, what's up with that? What do you mean
off-court they aren't stealing candy from babies and popping little kids' balloons just to see them cry? Way to not live up to the standard/image. Geez.
But, I digress--
