I wish kids would emulate the pros with their on-court behavior. You can see the cooperation between the players. They are trying to perform their best, not interrupt the flow of the match because they need the match to flow well to play their best as well. When I was growing up, Borg was carrying himself well, but we were all watching Mac and Connors. These guys were very entertaining and horrible role models. Kids today can watch Fed, Nadal-who doesn't snarl, stare or fist-pump nearly as much as he used to, Djokovic, Ferrer, Berdic, and Tsonga as well as many others and emulate them. There are great role models in men's tennis right now!
