Anyway this thread is supposed to be about discussing the match from a tennis point of view, not a character assassination of Llodra.
I'm not assassinating Llondra's character, so if you really want to stick to the topic, why pick a fight with something I'd not said.
I was expecting to come back in here to find a discussion of the match, but as you've accused me of being all nasty and judgemental I feel obliged to defend myself, but anyone who has given a positive or negative opinion of his character, can't complain if someone else gives a view, even if it isn't the one you agree with.
I was pointing out that many tennis fans had reached that view regardless of whether or not they are Murray fans, and long before this particular match-up was announced. Those are facts, and have nothing to do with my personal feelings towards him or what he said.
All I said about him was that he's an arse, which is pretty tame considering, and fully takes into account that apart form his pathetic attempt as an apology, he's kept his nose clean and assumes his comments came from ignorance, not nastiness. It also takes into account that he failed to give anything resembling an actual apology, or any understanding of what was wrong with what he'd said. If he was regularly spouting similar language, I'd have used something much stronger.
My only point was that people should be allowed to say they don't like someone who was caught using racist and misogynistic language, without being branded as an obsessive fan looking for excuses to hate someone. If people want to give him the benefit of the doubt - that's fine. It supports the point that being one of Andy's opponents is irrelevant to whether or not people like him. I'm not criticising anyone who likes him, or who doesn't think it's a big deal. I'm supporting the right for people to have honest opinions.
As for the match, I hope it's a good, but fairly straightforward one for Andy. Andy will be a bit nervous, but so will Llondra. With a bit of luck, nerves will settle on both sides fairly quickly to provide some stuff a bit like we saw in Australia. A similar score would be appreciated too.
