    Personally.......I'm getting sick of all of these over reacting- on GS clinching points.........well.....perhaps not over-reacting.......but the whole ......'watch ball go out, drop to your knees or back and begin crying......



    I ask the tennis heads here.......who do you call be the least excited......non-chalant after winning the GS????


    I want to see some variety......maybe like a Muscle pose ala Hulk Hogan or Bolt from Jamaica. Or just some dry smirk.....like.....big deal.....I was suppossed to win...........


    All this crumbling to court ala Rodge and Serena....is kind of old

    Safin Aussie Open 05? Of the more recent ones Djoker in the AO 2011 was pretty muted, which I liked. I too am sick of the "falling to the ground" routine.

    Trends change. In the 70s (check Billie-Jean King's matches), the standard victory action after winning was flinging the racquet above the head and jumping over to the other side and a quick handshake there. That was it.

    From a personality stand point.....I emulated him. Not tennis wise....lol


    I absolutely loved his demeanor. You cant tell if he is winning or losing......if he just ripped a sensational FH Winner or framed the ball 20 rows into the stands.........He just wouldnt give you anything as far breaking down mentally or giving up. Always level headed. Just adjust your strings and go back to the next point. Thats why he was my fav. player for years......but then again....so was mcEnore before him.

    When I play....I always guage where my opponent is emotionally.

    I dont care about non challant or whatever.

    I know that Rodg's reaction was not emotional enough. It was almost like he faked it. He admited that the moment was lost somehow.
