To me the whole argument can only be based around whether Roddick took offense or not. IMHO, he could care less. So if his opponent wasn't bothered by it why should we be?
I do think Andy did take a little offense to Roger saying "I know how you feel" as was evidenced by his passive-aggressive joking response. But if I had to guess back in the locker room they both have a lot of respect for one another.
You shouldn't judge a man based upon one or two incidents if he has a long track record of being a sportsman and gentleman. How many years has Fed been voted the best sportsman by his peers? +5?
