I think we have to allow Kev his little journalistic flourishes Aileen - I'm sure Andy's Boys won't mind and after all Glee is a v popular programme.
Good for Andy defending the players against Rochus. Unless he has proof he shouldn't make such remarks.
Liked this line from the DT piece: Then he came into his press conference wearing a T-shirt with the legend “Prepare, Attack, Destroy”. Which is exactly how he goes about his tennis these days.

I doubt Andy could make a claim for libel as he isn't mentioned specifically, but then I don't know how far being named by implication would stand up under English law.
However I can't see the ITF being too impressed with this statement, and it's possible they could call on Rochus to explain himself -

“There’s a lot of cheating,” he said. “Simply, people don’t like to talk about it. I simply would like to stop the pretending. This hypocrisy is exasperating.”
