    I loved it when Rafael Nadal kicked Novak’s a** at the US Open. That made my year. I hate Novak. He’s an arrogant jerk and a sore loser. When he doesn’t win a match, he’ll do something juvenile like smash his raquet or swear at the officials. He has the worst sportsmanship of any male player in tennis history. He’s the reason a lot of people stopped watching tennis. Roger Federer was always a gentleman, even when he lost.

    @tick: You mean, except when he makes up any excuse possible for the loss?

    @Tick, If you dont have anything smart to say than don’t say it at all… Best wishes to the couple…He is the great man and great player, he’s not No1 with no reason.

    Yes, Nole used to be a bit of an arrogant pr/ck and a sore loser, but he’s changed so much these last few years. I think it’s admirable that he’s made the effort to become a better man. As far as I can tell, he’s now one of the more gracious and humble guys on the circuit, at least in his interviews. Congrats, Nole and Jelena!

    Please, as if Nadal isn’t a sore’s only natural to be pissed after losing such games. They are amongst the greatest tennis players, their games are incredible and always enjoyable to watch!They are both competitive and I highly doubt people stoped watching tennis because of Djokovic. If they did, they know nothing about the sport. If anything he has offered some of the most amazing matches of the past few years! His techique is impeccable, and his matches(espacially against Nadal) are beautiful to watch. They are great athletes, both of them, if you can’t see and accept that , your opinion is as important as that of an onion. Congrats Nole!

    28132488″>tick: Tick, yes that is a good name for you….blood sucking little parasite. You can hate on Novak all you want but the truth is that he is as gracious a loser as he is a winner. He always shakes his opponents hand and embraces them at the net and gives them credit in interviews. He has never cried when losing, ala Nadal, who has admitted to cying for over a half an hour under a staircase, or Federer when he lost to Nadal. As for the swearing at an official, never happened, but Federer has argued with officials also and said ” I don’t give a shit” to him and Nadal has argued with officals also, and curses in Spanish.So have many others, big deal. As for the breaking of raquets, Federer has done it, and it is more because they are angry at themselves and it has never happened when Novak has lost a match. Get your facts straight! Tennis has more followers ,now, then ever because of the top three players so your argument on that is just more B.S. Really with the amount of crap you are spreading around ,you should invest in a pair of hip waders . It is poor fans like yourself who give tennis a black eye, not the players.
