I feel for Djokovic at times, like Andy he seems to kop stick from supporters because thy have their hero's number, With Andy it's usually from Federer fans but with Novak it's from Rafa supporters, i hear it was pretty strong last night and all because the Spanish see Novak as the one threat to King butt picker - still this is how it is in tennis and players need to rise above it and not take it personally, which i understand cannot always be easy, I certainly would struggle with it myself so kudos to those who manage it.
The sad part is, it only really applies to everyone not called Nadal or Federer (although i understand Rafa gets booed sometimes at the French) which is understandable considering their dominance over the last 10 years, they do seem to have cornered the market on fandom, it's just a shame that the majority of tennis fans in general have failed to recognise the effort both he and Andy have put in since 2008 to try and break this monopoly, they certainly do not get the credit they deserve.
I think all of the top players have their issues and falibilities.
I dislike Fed - simply because of his arrogance and the poor sportsmanship he increasingly displays. Not just against Murray but the likes of Warwrinka.
I dislike Djokovic, Nadal and Ferrer because I do think at some point they will be outed as involved in some form of doping. I also think Nadal and Djokovic's gamesmanship crosses the line into cheating sometimes.
Equally Djokovic's magnaminity when he loses is one of his positive traits. His hug for Murray after the US Open final point was a joy. Nadal's unsolicited congratulatory tweets to Murray last year were also nice. Ferrer has rung every drop out of his natural talent, and tries his heart out for limited reward. One Masters 1000 and then only because the big guns wanted out.
I like Bahgdatis because of the way he behaved in that late running match at Wimbledon last year.
Tsonga doesn't do it for me, probably because his oTT celebrations make me cringe a bit. It is also because he usually gives Murray tough matches. Equally I was glad he got his doubles silver medal because he is another one who battles on without ever really getting the trully big rewards.
I find Raonic arrogant as well and no respecter of his elders and betters.
I am afraid I struggle to find any redeeming traits in Federer at all. He behaves as though he is God, but never faces up to the fact that a lit of his success came in quite a weak era.
As for Murray - what I respect most is his try, try again and then try some more attitude. I completely agree that he doesn't get the credit he deserves. The lad has so many demons, but has battled on until he won the prize he so desperately wanted. I treasured the comment after the US Open that if he had never been able to play another tennis match he would have gone into retirement content and fulfilled.
All in all I am hard to please...!!!
