At least Gonzo's reckless abandon appeared to have some flair and purpose (sometimes).
Blake does come across as a genuinely nice person during interviews (so maybe that's it).
To each their own. I find his monster forehand and sweet one handed backhand and go for broke style highly entertaining. Like the exact opposite of Gilles Simon.
