Well, Connors and MacEnroe were also the best thing to happen to tennis, but should we have said, "Oh, just let Connors and MacEnroe be Connors and MacEnroe"? Obviously not - their obnoxious, vulgar behaviour on court was just not acceptable to most tennis fans no matter how talented they were as tennis players. Thankfully, that behaviour is not tolerated in today's game.
Its important that we should not compromise the integrity of the game to sell tickets. And yes, it does hurt my eyes to watch Djokovic celebrate half-naked, and the solution is not to turn my eyes away or change the channel - I want to be able to see pro tennis without the beefcake display. My complaints are not whining - they are constructive suggestions for the benefit of the game.
If anything, your post is a knee-jerk, defensive reaction which has not considered the longer term implications of your blind defence of Djokovic. Once you think it through, you might find that you have only embarrassed yourself.
I do not take my shirt off to celebrate a tennis match victory, and I treat people with respect in my posts, so my house does not need any cleaning, and therefore your allegation is totally irrelevant to the topic of this thread.
