It’s a valid point he has a more graceful game than Andre and others, but it’s still impressive he’s not out there embarrassing himself. He moves like he’s in slow motion but it’s not like those guys are wiping him off the court with double bagels.
Just FYI - John has won two of the four Powershares champions series going on this month. Beating Courier, Chang and almost beating Andy Roddick (7-5) in the final of a third. So he is more than holding his own...
