7 a.m. ? Holy moly, how long is the flight from Serbia to China? Like 20 hours?

He's such a cool guy, Federer or Nadal would maybe sign a couple of autographs and be done with it.

Nice guy. I have to admit that I don't think Nadal, Murray or Federer would have been so nice.

Out of the top 4, Djokovic is the nicest to his fans.

Out of the top 4, Djokovic is the nicest to his fans.

And to winners. But he's probably the worst winner, himself, of the top 4.

How arrogant to chat casually with his fans.

I have never liked him,and this is the biggest reason why.

You talk like you've known Nadal all your life and he made your life miserable or something.



I don't think I have ever even remotely said anything that would make anyone think that. Besides,one does not have to know someone personally to gather an idea about the type of person that they are.

Next time you do a quick once over of someone,please remember that you don't know them personally,and are a judgemental heathen who has no right to decided whether or not someone is a pr*ck or not. Lol.

Nice to see him not being annoyed after a long flight!~

Eventually he will become like Nadal.....being sick of the fans pestering him for signatures.

I have historically really disliked djokovic, and there are still things that irk me, but I am softening. I have a great appreciation for the level of tennis he has brought and I do find him to be a lot more likeable and gracious than in the past.

Murray... I'm trying. But the guy is just so bland that it's difficult.

I agree with your analysis, but I can also see why these two have grown apart in their tennis careers. Novak grew up in nice mountains, while Murray was in rain and fog and psychopath bullets at school.

It's the other way around.

Nice mountains???

He grew up in the balkans war.

I agree. Novak has grown on me quite a bit actually - he seems like a pretty good guy. Murray is such a downer 24/7, makes it hard to get behind him.

Isn't it obvious that Clarky-random-number is biased against Nadal? He doesn't just flame Nadal as a player but also as a person when Nadal has done nothing to even remotely suggest he's aloof with fans (shy, perhaps, but not aloof). Or maybe you don't know what the word "bias" means, which is why my post makes no sense to you?

ETA : You say, "I presume that either English is not your first language, or that Djokovic and Murray shot the poster's pets..." You might also need to work on your basic comprehension skills as I was suggesting the poster is biased against Nadal, not Djokovic or Murray. And good luck with convincing people on the Internet that English is your first language.

ETA-2 : Wait, where is Clarky's post where he pretty much said Nadal was an a*****e and wouldn't converse with fans? I don't even see my response to it.

ETA-3 : Or did I screw up and respond to the wrong poster? Darn, can somebody help me out here? If Clarky wasn't the one to make that post, I apologize. That was meant for whoever it was that "presumed" Nadal wouldn't bother with fans.

I didn't say he was an a-hole. I said that he doesn't speak to fans if they don't measure up to his standards. Not sure what the big deal is in saying that. All you have to do is watch him when he signs autographs to see he doesn't even make eye contact much less say anything to them. He is distant and cold to them,and I think I know why but cannot say for sure.

And as much as it pains me to say it,Nadal should take a lesson from **** on how to interact with fans because he is lightyears behind the curve in that department. Now I must go barf for having to compliment ****'s manners. Lol.

And I am a SHE. Not sure how many more times I have to make that known.

That's probably because he's shy. I know because I'm sort of shy in real life and avoid eye contact if I can help it. He's probably more humble and down-to-Earth than any of the top 4.

Anyway, all good. My apologies for reading too much into your post (which I still can't find). I thought you were a biased **** or a Djotard (or whatever you call them).

I don't see anything wrong with that. That's how I celebrate all of my WTT and USTA wins. Even the wins I sits out, as soon as the match is over, I tear my shirt right down the middle. But the differences between Novak and I is, I rub whats left of my shirt in our opponents face, saying that's what victory smells like.

He is only the worst winner in terms of having a more outlandish celebration but I have never seen him not give credit or not say nice things/win or lose.

There's also the "King is dead" incident (which he didn't say himself but could have not have it said) and the "Obviously, I don't have so many injuries, right?" incident. But I still really like him because he's a genuinely good loser. It's not an act and you can see it.
