putting a towel on his knee...bliah!

If he beats federer at slam then we can talk about this. Murray has bigger troubles to worry such as being able to get past players like verdasco and gonzalez at slams. Federer has 14 slams and nadal has 6 and is already crying about his knees.

Rafa vs Fed in slams 5-2.H2H 13-7.Tell me who owns who.
Btw Fed 28,Rafa 23,Nole 22.Wait til they reach that age to say if he "owns" them.But let's not get at that.Offtopic.

I do think he feels frusterated at times since he feels like he gets little love from the tennis viewing public with the very popular Federer and Nadal always ranked over him, and now the new hyped up British hero Murray on the rise. I think at times it is frusterating to him. It is a shame that I think he got off on the wrong foot in some ways with his crazy parents, and he got unlucky to not take #2 atleast temporarily over either Nadal or Federer and now drops to #4 without ever rising above #3, and he is from a small country with limited tennis history, and then the U.S Open debacle after the Roddick match. I think all this has combined to give him a somewhat unfair public image and not get the public affection and support he deserves.

Federer has 14 slams and nadal has 6 and is already crying about his knees.

In 1981 Borg had plenty of grand slams and many probably regarded him as the goat, but it was still OK to believe that he may very easily be beaten by McEnroe if they happened to meet in a match.

So the fact that Fed has 14 slams says nothing about what would happen if he meets Murray in a match, against whom he has a very inferior H2H.

Give me a ****ing break, Djokovic is one of the nicest guys on tour from the looks of it. Yes a bit immature but I've never seen him as a player that holds any animosity towards anyone. And he is rarely a sore loser, when he goes to the net he congratulates his opponents sincerely, looks them right in the eye and congratulates them. The guy is a class act and for the most part is misrepresented by the behaviour of his parents after he won his first grand slam.

What's wrong with Djoko showing concern for a fellow player? Would you rather he come over and hit Benneteau in the knees with a hammer? Stop being so picky.

C'mon N_F, federer has said plenty of nice things about nadal as well. Yes he has been critical of nadal, murray, and nole, but I doubt he is as mean as you make it out to be. He didn't say he didn't think it nadal was injured, just didn't think it was as serious as toni made it out to be, but he later changed his opinion. If federer dislikes nadal, he would have never said things like "If I'm not no.1 he should be" or give him a ride on his private jet, or visit nadal when he was injured in basel, or other things. He might not say nice things very often, but I don't think he is a mean person.

I just have to add, no one really knows what goes on behind the scenes. We can make conclusions all we want based on some interviews, but I highly doubt the players make such a big deal about what others have said, at least not to the extent of posters here.

Freak you're just bitter. Stop making excuses you're a disgrace to Nadal fans everywhere. I'm glad most of the world doesn't come onto Talk Tennis to learn about tennis players' personalities.

You're grabbing at straws here. What does Fed thinking that Nadal not being injured have anything to do with his like or dislike for Nadal? Stop spending every minute of your existence to make Federer look like a villain.

You know, the kind of person who politely smiles to your face while he secretly talks **** about you behind your back. While I concede that some of the things Fed says (and Djoko) are ill-advised, bordering on a bit arrogant, I rest assured that I know where both players stand.

I'm glad you see it that way. I agree totally. Roddick's comments were very nasty. Almost like comments said on TW by trolls. Djokovic shouldn't have let it get to him but the crowd giving him a hard time throughout the match and supporting Roddick was too much to handle.

I don't think so. It's not like I know nadal personally, but he just seems like a person who somewhat sugar coats things because he doesn't want to hurt people's feelings, but not a backstabber. Roger is just brutally honest, but perhaps a bit too much, but it's just how they are. I don't think either are mean people.

I don't know if you mean that Novak was deliberate with Benneteau today, and if you do then I would have to disagree with you. It's just a natural inclination to be concerned when your opponent is hurt and to help however you can. This definitely wasn't an act by Djokovic. Likewise, he shouldn't be given heaps of praise (which he hasn't) for behaving the way he should have anyway.

Djokovic is very familiar with the agony that goes with having a trainer take care of you so he thought Bennetau needed some support.

Wow, Ive been a Djokovic fan on these boards for a bit, and it has been tough especially around the Australian Open and Indian Wells. People bashing Djokovic for no reason(sometimes there was a reason, but not always) Finally its nice to see that almost all posters are defending Djokovic from a few guys instead of piling on about nothing.

Do you want the reasons he has few fans? Because I'd be happy to list them. Just let me know.

Likewise, I'm happy to see him at least attempting to change his ways. He probably realizes he needs some crowd support if he's ever to win another GS title.

Fact, nice guys finish last in Tennis...especially at the top of men's game...

Nadal a chameleon who was taught to to PC all the time....he's got an ego bigger then those juiced biceps..

Fed, ego maniac.....not really a nice guy like people think...he's got a little Martina Natrilova in him...it made me sick to my stomach to see him cry like a little b....tch when Nadal forked him the last few slams....

Roddick....he's a *****, without that serve he'd be a qualifer

The Joker, an excuse maker to cover up his insecurities

Murray, the second coming of Johnny Mac, wait until he goes down in a tough match in a slam....he will be cursing like Mac...



Nice guys?

Todd Martin...always a bridesmaid...never a big winner

Blake...nice guy...not tough enough mentally...

Sampras...the only nice guy in 30 years to reach number one!


For what its worth!

You are way off on this one. lol at labeling Sampras a nice guy while saying Nadal is an ego maniac. I think you got that mixed around. Juiced biceps? Are you saying he is on steroids? Pure hatred or should I say jealousy on your part. Some bitter tennis player that never made it so you spend all your time hating on pro players. Pathetic.

Đoković is not a doctor and cannot start treating the oppo. Even if he was, he could not start pulling his leg, massaging, or getting the guy to stand up. He cannot.

The most he can really do is hand a towel, or ask the oppo how he is. It was very nice of Đoković to come over!

On my telly, the commentators were remarking that it is very surprising that 2 players are on one side of the net,( like Đoković had broken a rule), then added that there's no rule against it.

I do think he feels frusterated at times since he feels like he gets little love from the tennis viewing public with the very popular Federer and Nadal always ranked over him, and now the new hyped up British hero Murray on the rise. I think at times it is frusterating to him. It is a shame that I think he got off on the wrong foot in some ways with his crazy parents, and he got unlucky to not take #2 atleast temporarily over either Nadal or Federer and now drops to #4 without ever rising above #3, and he is from a small country with limited tennis history, and then the U.S Open debacle after the Roddick match. I think all this has combined to give him a somewhat unfair public image and not get the public affection and support he deserves.Great post thalivest and I totally agree..Well said indeed

I really don't get why Djokovic gets all the hate he gets. He seems like a really nice and genuine guy. I like him a lot as a tennis player and I am sure he wasn't acting anything when going to the other side. Sluiter came running over to Baghdatis with ice when Baghdatis got injured at 's Hertogenbosch and Santoro came with an pack of ice when Ljubicic injured himself. But now, when Djokovic does a similar thing, there suddenly is something wrong with showing your concern and helping out? Suddenly is something hypocritical to win over the crowd? Please.. :rolleyes:

Whats wrong with you? Just think about the dumb thread you have started.
How about some comments about tennis and not player bashing. There is no point to the latter and, if you keep putting out threads just to create contraversy, you will be banned. I know you are new here, but use your head, fella.

Absolute nonsense! Ramoen Sluiter also went over to Baghdatis when he twisted his knee and even brought the ice. It's the least one can do. Djoko also applauded a good shot of Benneauteu and does it often. He's a great sportsman!

Djokovic was being a good sportsman, I hate how everyone drops on anything on any of the big players trying to make it sound negative.Oh, this poster should be ignored. Not just because of dumb comments, but because the comments are for the purposes of inflaming the readers. They impart no tennis information and should be banned for their neferious activity.

Nole isn't a bad person. A joker and probably a pretty decent fellow but he's sensitive and quick to anger if he's accused of something.

That's what happened with the Roddick incident.
Now Roddick is a class jack ***. Always has been and it's only gotten worse.

I'll look for some stuff in Novak's match threads as well but honestly the amount of complaining Nadal fans do in Novak's match threads this year about his celebrations, MTO etc. should be evident without the need to look it up.

Not to mention a certain Nadal fan constantly refering to Novak as "Balkan Trash" until he got banned(temporarily).

I believe you (even if I don't recall that thread), however Nadal fans like Clarky/PSNELKE/*********/Visca etc. have accused Novak of doping a couple of times as well, can't remember a Fed fan doing it(although I'm sure there are some).

Doesn't bother me to be honest as I think all top/star players are doping(without exception) and were doing so in every era before.
