Not like it's not the truth. They only come out for Federer matches, they are the classic gloryhunter crowd.

Don't think it has anything to do with all the Fed matches played during evening hours when people get back from work?

The courts were filling up nicely by the time the Djokovic match started.

It's always been like that with Fed. Obviously Djokovic is well known there as well from his Beijing appearances. Tennis in China is all about appealing to the richer people not the masses, look where they put the stadium.

Apart from the top 4 most of the crowd have no clue about tennis on the men's side.

It's not that different in most other places.

Its not about the deitification of the 90's, players werent as prepared as nowadays they were, so you could see who had the pure shotmaking ability out of nowhere like Agassi, Kuerten or Kafelnikov, three players that I respect and that would simply gop out there and try to beat the shit out of the ball not wasting much time.

I have all the right to like that and like similar players like Soderling, even if its not the same.

OTOH, tacticians that liked to concentrate alwyas existed, McEnroe would take ages to serve too.

Yep, but he played S&V so it's all forgiven...

And rafa is not so much a tactician as a big OCD cat

Following your logic I have the right to like Nadal too without being called a clueless fangirl or everythingSpanishtard, no?

He freaked out when he lost to Gabshvili injured in Kazan destroying the racket afterwards.

Other than than, nothing , just a pusher clay courter. It was meant to be a joke actually, but Andreea cant hate spaniards (or at least is what they say), so we are trying to discover if she can change tastes

Djokovic:

Quote:
"I never went to university," he added. "Well, if I can say, that's one wish that I have in life, one regret, that I would like to go in some university, because I really like the idea of educating yourself and being a part of a group of students. It's a fun period in one person's life."

Murray:



Quote:
"I don't read books," Murray, 25, said, as if he were allergic to it, "I mean, I go on the Internet a lot and read stuff online, but I don't read books. I haven't read a book since I was about 14 or 15. I got halfway through the third Harry Potter book. It was the first one that was really, really big. It was like 600 pages. I stopped around 200. I haven't read a book since then."

She doesn't even hate Gruntollers ?

Yeah, unfortunately we don't have a lot of upcoming talented ballstrikers. Boluda was pretty talented but he kinda did not deliver

Djokovic: smart but a hypocrite, unsure of himself, always looking for others love and approval( Well, except when he wins matches anyway )

Murray: honest, doesn't fear being taken for a half wit
