meh, Burrow. Nole doesn't try hard at all, it comes to him naturally and effortlessly. He is a born goof. Trust me, we who've been following him forever know this.

and yeah, I miss that young goofy Nole, nowadays he is just going after his own business, being always politically correct etc.

I half-agree. I still give some props for trying but he's not as good to watch on a tennis court as RF, Safin, most of the new balls guys and he's nowhere near the charisma of some of the other dudes. Still, he's better than RN.

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.

I prefer Rafael Nadal, he doesn't come across as smarmy and smug. He can be completely obnoxious, like the Rosol match, but I prefer someone who doesn't crave love and attention.

Roddick is a staple for one of those guys who's an obnoxious bully against lower ranked opponents, but off court he has that way about him that is just naturally funny and deadpan, whereas Djokovic is obviously forcing the humour, which to me is counter productive.
