    Nadal's entire between point routine/post winner stare-downs/grunts/serve motion

    Federer's hair adjustment

    Murray's c'mons/whats/screams

    Sharapova's screeches/dainty fist pumps/c'mons

    Djokovic's (former)chest thumping/victory face

    and the list goes on...

    LMAO, good list. I would have to go with Sharapova out of these.

    Murray lame "come on"s, Hewitt yelp "come on"s, Hewitt chain jiggling, and Ivanovic loud stutter step on hardcourts before opponent serve are all honorable mentions.

    Nadal's butt picking. It's quite nasty to be honest.

    I think Murray's "c'mons" are what bothers me most.

    Djokovic's bouncing lasts the longest and is most noticeable.

    I hardly ever notice Roddick's and Nadal's quirks.

    Where's Federer's hairdoing and weeping in public like a regular cry-baby?

    lol.

    He's the only ever man i've seen cry when losing a slam. :(

    Infact, I thought it was quite disrespectful to Nadal.

    How about all the moaning on the court?
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WF6NWfqX8Hc&feature=related
    Anyone here think this is normal??? Pretty soon we are going to need earplugs to protect ourselves.
    Firm action is needed, I would suggest this
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EsCKEQt8DIo

    Wow another record, the first losing finalist to ever cry:D
    But I guess they all wanted to cry though and be off the court as soon as possible. I think he tried to control his emotions but couldn't. It is not disrespectfull, it is not like it was his choice to cry it just happened.

    Roddick doesn't jiggle his shirt. He jiggles a much more important part of his body.

    So we can conclude you are unsuccesfull in life and you either think you have a hot girlfriend or you are dreaming of a hot girlfriend. Most likely the latter. Whereas Federer ...
    Are you sure you are not just jealous and a little bit bitter?

  34. I hate Nadals buttpicking, and Nadals time-delays. The referees on the ATP-tour are sissys for not giving his ass more warnings for time-delays.

    Bryan brothers' gaymo (gay and emo) chest bumping. Wait... that's not politically correct... and they're brothers. (Sorry masses.)

    Federer's hair adjusting. Cut your hair!

    Nadal's bottle placement routine. The buttpicking isn't annoying because I wouldn't play with material in my crack either.

    I'd rather be gay, poor and happy than straight, rich and miserable.

    But to each their own.

    I just hope one day you'll grow up to be less of a jerk than you are now, kid. And I hope you start wising up about voicing such opinions in public. You could get yourself into a lot of trouble.

    Ugh! I totally agree! He reminds me of my dog. It's like he gets tired chasing his own tail and needs to hold on to the ball so he can catch his breath.

    You know Verdasco's started doing the bottle OCD alignment thingy. Maybe it's just a spanish thing? :D

  39. Soon he will start with the time-delays also, there should be NO siestas on the ATP-tour.

    The point of my 'lecture' was that happiness matters more than sexuality. But I'm VERY impressed you can regurgitate other people's material and switch words around.

    A gold star for you!

    I was reading an article in UK's Observer from June. Apparently Nadal cried for an hour in the changing rooms at AEC after losing Wimbledon in 2007. Then he wouldn't leave his house for a week after. :p

    i'm not stupid, i'm in top sets in english and maths at school, don't treat me like an idiot.

    Happiness does matter, but are gay people actually happy?

    Hm... I don't really know, perhaps you should take a pen and a notebook, track down every individual gay person in the world and ask each and every one whether they are happy. I'm afraid I can't speak for the global gay community.

    I would have to say it's a toss up between nadal/joker and the endless amount of time they take between points, or sharapova and her mating calls on the court that crack the paint on my walls.
