They were doing it against Nadal, and now against Robredo. I hope that people watching in other countries don't think that we're all like that.

Cheering for your favorite is fine, but these people are cheering Robredo's errors, faults, and double faults... and even taunting him. Have a heart, the guy should have beaten your fave in three sets and had a major let down, I don't think he needs to hear it from you.

All I can say is that they better not pull that kind of crap against Agassi, or they'll be booed out of the stadium.

Today it's mainly them doing all the job, they were far worse when Blaked played Nadal, but the whole stadium was highly pro-Blake. I guess they thought this match was gonna be a lot easier.

I'll be waiting until they do that against Agassi, I don't think it'll be pretty, the rest of the stadium probably will shut them up. :p

I've never liked americans/american crowds. They are too one sided and are a mile from overboard. Yelling not cheering after first serve faults,double faults. It's stupidity.
Thats why I like the Australian Open and not the us open

I agree. I'm an American and I believe in fair play. These people are in corporate boxes and not where players friends and families usually sit. That says it all for me. If they pull that crap against Agassi they'll be thrown out.

Oh Hater...Let it go! Why do we hold tennis to this "UNCHEERABLE" Standard? Cheering makes it fun and enjoyable, entertaining...all that good stuff.

Leave the J-Block alone. No different from the Brazilians, or Chileans...i personally love the Davis Cup Atmosphere.

the whole crowd has been piss poor.
there is screaming when the players are throwing the balls up to serve.
they are too noisy during the points.
they are screaming abuse at players.

fine, support your favourite in a massively over-the-top manner, but at least shut your dumb asses up during the points!

Clarify why I am a hater?

And I even stated in my post that cheering is fine. No doubt you would have been one of those blue-shirted morons, so whatever.

What do brazilians and chileans have to do with anything in this thread? He talked about the J-Block, not americans in general.

Davis Cup atmosphere is nice, during Davis Cup or a football match.

There is a difference between cheering for your player and jeering and yelling insults at the opponent, which is what the J-Block has done in addition to just cheering James on. In my opinion, hurling insults and jeering the other player goes too far and is frankly, just rude.

Cheering and jeering are two different things and the J-Block has been doing a little too much of the latter here and at the Pilot Pen for my taste.

the j-block shows no respect for his opponents.

funny thing is, when blake played davis cup (yeah, the competition where the crowd is supposed to be one-sided) in croatia, he complained that the crowd was terrible and that it was one of the worst crowds that he's played in front of. :eek:

it's not a bit overboard, it's too much overboard, as a beginning, they're too noisy even during playing :confused: :confused: , they cheered for Robredo's faults, at a moment most of the crowds stopped greeting Robredo's winners specially in the third set..these are strong stressing factors,it can affect players on big shots , (even professionals) so it wasn't that fair kind of support :mad:
BUT, i don't expect this 'll be repeated against Agassi by any means..for plenty of reasons..

It not just Americans crowds everybody has there biases the French crowd against Nadal was much worst. Blake small cheering section does not represent all American fans. I agree that James fan are a bit much, but if you start well and get up on James you can shut them up quick
