Excellent article. The view that you have to be a disrespectful barbarian to be successful is becoming an epidemic in sport. I try and instill in my kids that it's important to not only have respect for yourself on the court, but also your opponent and the sport itself. That doesn't mean you can't be aggressive, just means you don't have to be an a-hole to win.
