That's because Djokovic and Federer didn't get an injury that sidelined them for 7 months. I will tell Nadal to stop getting injured so people stop talking about him.

Federer is a boring individual because he wears a mask and his mask is so tight on his face the fans are never going to know his real personality.

At least with Novak Djokovic he knows he's pretentious he doesn't try to pretend that he's perfect he has a silly side. Djokovic is also more charismatic than Nadal and Federer. Djokovic knows he's not perfect and he's a lot more honest with the media than Nadal and Federer are.
Oh my....not again with this Djokovic is so much more charismatic stuff. If he was more charismatic he would have more fans.

Djokovic is no more honest then Nadal or Federer. His PR has been working rounds on him to make him more media friendly and he has been saying the same politically correct statements as the others. You are right though, he is pretentious.

The current hype about Nadal is his knee injuries and all the speculation is something Nadal and his PR loves. The media hype is now is the knee injury serious as he says it is? Just like Greta Garbo Nadal makes disappearing acts he goes away for a while whenever he suffers from a shocking upset or loss. Nadal's done this before in 2009 when he got blasted by Soderling at the French Open.

Of course, instead of giving Robin Sodering credit for pulling off a shocking upset Nadal blamed his knees he's such a nice guy isn't he?

Nadal reminds me of those actors and actresses who want to maintain a mystique about themselves. Is he or is she not what the person says he or she is?

I don't think Nadal fans realize he LOVES the media attention the world media flocking to some minor 250 ATP Event it is great for his ego.

Nadal isn't some sweet genuine guy he's a celebrity he and his PR people do whatever they can to drum up as much publicity as they can and generate as much interest as they can about him.
Nadal isn't trying to get media spotlight. All the speculation has originated from posters on forums and journalists have snatched onto that. Nadal isn't a celebrity looking out to grab media attention, he is a tennis player who creates a lot of buzz and profit and surely you can see why there is so much hype about his return?

People complain that he is a drama queen because he talks about his injury, but at the same time people get upset that he isn't explaining enough what is going on with his knees?
