So I was just watching highlights of the Nadal-Soderling match at RG 2009 when I saw a recap of this http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vUuVU03lY1c incident. Didn't seem too lighthearted. I also seem to remember reading that Federer disliked Soderling, who is also generally disliked by the other players? Any similar videos/incidents he was a part of?

Rafa was pulling some gamesmanship on Soderling and he threw it right back at him. Whats wrong with that?

I have never read about Federer disliking Soderling.

I have seen an interview with Murray where he said that he never got along with Soderling.

Nothing. But the way he shook hands at the end of the match was sort of pathetic.

I read it once or twice but can't remember where. Could be false, though.

I forget where I read this, or who even said it. It was something about how Soderling had a reputation of being unfriendly, because he didn't chit chat much with the other guys, but that he had been warmer of late (at the time of the article). I'll have to look that up and bring back the link.

i once heard a commentator describe him as "boorish" which means having unrefined manners. maybe he does come off the wrong way to some people.

Not chit-chatting is fine. The things I've heard and read about Lendl in the locker-room cross all limits of civilized behavior.

He did? How long ago was that?

He said it in an interview in May of 2011.

No,his reputation is just bad with Ralph. He basically mocked Ralph in Wimby and destroyed him at his beloved slam.

This is probably the most known occurrence.

Federer HAS to LOVE Sodering like he loves Mirka and the twins.

I don't know about the rest of the players.

Never knew Lendl was such a bigoted jerk and a bully . Always thought of him as the ice man , a loner shunning any human interaction. Love Pat Cash and have to believe he wouldn't lie about a situation like this .

What's wrong with publicly mocking someone, you mean?.

I have never read about Federer disliking Soderling.

I have seen an interview with Murray where he said that he never got along with Soderling.

I've read it here, for whatever that counts, lol.

Wow about what Cash said about Lendl...

Federer said he practiced with Soderling in the past back in 2009.
