I'd forgotten this thread even existed, which might have been a good thing given my own feelings about the 'gentleman'! I was hoping Nadal would beat him today and take some of the wind out of his egotistical sails, but as far as I'm concerned now Berdy might as well not bother turning up. He just hasn't got what it takes mentally to beat Djoko, nor has he the game.
I don't trust Novak. Don't like the company he keeps. I feel that gamesmanship can progress to cheating and that has happened with Novak. It was up to the umpire to decide against Novak at netgate but he didn't and that left the way open for Novak to do the right thing. He didn't. Indeed, he claimed he didn't know it was against the rules!!!!
Ditto. Even beginners know you don't hit the ball once it's on the other side of the net. Also I don't think it's just coincidence that he's become even more unpleasant since he took creepy Becker on board.
FF is now ahead
of Andy in the "race to London!"
So what? No big deal that at this stage of the season. I'm more interested in the rankings anyway, which was the ONLY reason why I didn't want Nadal to beat him!
