Ungracious in defeat, an arrogant twat in victory.
A remarkable player, IMO the greatest of all time, but my god, I feel more and more compelled to detest him as time goes on.
Just found this thread. My sentiments exactly.
Really peed off with Roger today. He said after his win in Estoril yesterday that he was the big fave for RG, as he was defending champion, bla bla bla. Well, Rafa was defending champ four times and he never once said that he was the big fave going in. I really hope Roger and Rafa meet each other in the semi and Rafa prevails. That'll show him.
I'd prefer them to meet in the final and that Rafa totally grinds Roger into the red dirt. After Andy my support has always been for Rafa, and I reckon Andy showed Roger the meaing of humility at the AO, whilst all Rog could do was make a patronising joke about the British ("150,000 years ..."). Even his praise for Andy sounded hollow.
