Ali, its like u've written a 'short' bio for para..
thz for explaining d bad press issue he's having, it makes alot of sense now why his popularity's declinin. i think i can sum it up by saying fame+fortune=too much attention(bad press from media)=misundersatanding.
i've also heard that ppl in thailand r very friendly. i think its in their culture, much like japanese ppl. but every1 hav diff perspective n they choose how things r precieved so i guess his popularity isnt d num1 priority, his tennis matter d most(to me neway).
i knew thai currency was low, didnt think it was that low. US250 buys 10,000baht
no wonder y ppl call thailand second heaven. anyway abt his dad's donations, i think ppl r always quick to judge others but forget their own actions. i dont think it matter how much money he was reported donatin, either 1 or 1million baht, d amount shlding b d focus, n who knows wat other 'behind d scene' charitable or volunteer work their family might hav been helpin in that didnt get reported by d press...most of all Para shldnt b criticise for his families actions.
n i agree he is a great player, hope his results will refect that soon.
