Jerzy. It must be hard for him. Feeling distant from those two, in ranking list and the tour.

Well, out of the two of us, you're the one whose mother tongue is English, so I sound silly arguing otherwise. But I doubt many people actually believe that and agree with you. I think Roger knows very well what he is saying. He is a truly intelligent man.

I don't know Jerovic and Ive never seen him play but hes telling the truth about Federer. He acts like hes 3 classes above everyone else (and for a while his tennis actually was). Arrogant, but it don't bother me.

Djokovic has a cool attitude. Yes, he's a show off, but I don't see anything fake about his behaviour. He has explosive emotions (like most serbians).

+1 for Janovic

It's not about the language, it's about the culture, Djokovic is the same. And i don't think he doesn't understand what is right to say and what isn't. If you understand the language you know what is appropriate and what isn't.

Hey, I'm not an expert. Just saying it how I see it... like Janowicz I agree that Roger is highly intelligent, and what I said had nothing to do with the level of his intelligence... But we will have to agree to disagree. I wouldn't disrespect someone (including you) by saying you are not intelligent enough to debate with me in English. Especially when this isn't even a factual debate, it's all subjective and someone else's opinion

I really don't understand What you two mean. give an example of a controversial statement that Roger Has made and can be blamed on lack of culture or knowledge on how to use the language?

As for Nole, the stuff he says in English that makes GM implode, my opinion is that he would have said the exact same thing in Serbian.

Default Re: Janowicz criticizes Federer and Djokovic's attitude

Seriously people, what is your problem? First you want players to show some personality and not be media-trained drones and when they actually act like themselves, then they do not have the right to criticize others?! For those who ask who the hell Janowicz is to say this about Fed and Nole, ask yourselves who the hell you are to criticize whatever top player you have bashed in the past (you know who you are). And lest someone say Janowicz has a responsibility towards the other players to be civil: he does not. His statements were made under his own name, not under the guise of an internet persona and unlike the tards here he will have to own up to what he said when Roger and Novak ask him about it. That is worthy of some respect. So despite the fact that I disagree with Jerzy's statements, I fully support his right to make them.

Actually, Federer is well aware he is sounding like he has huge self-confidence, make no mistake. the cultural difference is not that vast. It's just that Roger doesn't care. He says what he says because he DOES believe he's awesome and he likes being honest, not much to it. Besides, it's not like he's going overboard with it, only tards on MTF think Roger is a generelly unpleasant person. He's still very well liked in the locker room.

Djokovic is a show man yes but he's cut down on that a little (at least on court) in the latest years. These days his behavior is fine imo.

As for Nadal, yes he talks a lot of crap about him always being the underdog etc but it is hard to judge exactly which things he is lying about and which things he really does believe in since his childhood messed him up. Incidentally that's the only part of Jerzy's answers that I didn't like. JJ must have forgotten what a sore loser and poor sport Nadal can be. Bet Jerzy would have had another opinion of Rafa if HE was the one who beat him at Wimbly 12.

I agree absolutely,

People rant on here about players being too pretentious and fake, yet this guy gives his honest opinion and everybody is up his ass about it. It's all good until your favourite player gets attacked.

Fucking bullshit.

Nice.

Everything he said about Fed and Djokovic personality are fair game. It's an opinion. And I like it. But, the thing about Fed and prize money is just plain wrong, IIRC He sjould get his facts checked.

You know, I'm really liking these kind of attitude from these youngsters.

It might be more useful for them to show attitude on court rather than off court.
