Yeah, he won't be reading this obviously, but I feel I need to do this.

I've been making jokes about his first round losses, and the whole "I was once up 4-2 on Nadal" thing he'd "tell his grandchildren". I'm going to stop that now.

Every time I see the guy, he busts his butt on every single point, and never quits on anything. He does have respect for this game, and he wins whenever he can win. I'm going to root for the guy the rest of the way on.

He might read these boards.. it wouldn't be that much a stretch, if the guy loves tennis. But yeah, Russell is a fighter, I always enjoy watching him play.. though unfortunately it's rather sparingly due to TV coverage. But yes, props to Russell.

I'll also apologize to Nadal for saying his injuries are fake, and also saying he won't last until 30 due to constant injuries. I'm stopping that right now.

He's a good lad, and deserves what comes his way. I'll root for him in future.

I apologise to Federer for saying he has a fat nose. I now realise it is only because his dad is loosely based off of Super Mario and there is little he can do to change that.

Michael Russell is a journeyman- who definetely should be respected as mentioned- He held matchpoints against Guga Kuerten in French Open 12-13 years ago but lost- and Guga went on to win the FO. What if Michael had won that match, maybe his career would have looked very different?

I apologize for lambasting your frail psychology exhibited in major finals. After all, the acorn does not fall far from the tree. Immaturity should be expected from the son of the infamous cougar and Twitter stalker of Deliciano.

I'd like to say sorry to Djokovic for underestimating him.
