Maybe it's just the youngsters. Different times, different heroes etc. But I dunno the demographics of the TW posters.

Sometimes I think Pete's no-nonsense, workmanlike persona on court hurt his legacy. Perhaps he felt that records and numbers will say it all for him. But stuff like that is cold (for lack of a better word). Maybe if he showed the world more of his human side, instead of just being a monstrous tennis machine, we'd find him more fascinating.
