    We all have our favourite player, but who is your LEAST favourite and why?

    I don't really hate players. That's a very strong feeling to give to a complete stranger I've never even met. But I do dislike some of them, especially Serena, for all the same reasons @greenjam mentioned:

    Who is your favourite current male player

    I want to say Federer, but I'm pretty sure he'll be the most popular player here :( soooo I'm giving my vote to my 2nd fave:

    Not a fan of Tsitsipas

    I tried to see it like that as well, but then he said in an interview during this AO that he'd really like to have more friends on tour. He blamed the use of cell phones and how everyone seems to have one 24/7, making interactions a bit more difficult, and also the way some groups of friends...

    Only their fanbases. Zverev doesn't have Twitter, and Stef has been pretty quiet. But the fans are saying stuff like "my fave reached a GS SF first" and "my fave actually wins tournaments" :laughing: I put the blame on the media, though. It's like it's impossible for them to recognize Stef (or...

    Not a fan of Tsitsipas

    Sure! I'm the kind of person who loves to watch videos of promos, backstages, interviews, and all kind of off the court stuff, especially of the Next Gen. You can get a pretty good idea of the kind of relationship they have with each other when watching them with their guard down. For example...

    It already started. There's a passive aggresive war going on right now on Twitter between them. It's hilarious :-D but also very sad for me, as I'm part of the Saschanos fam :cry:

    Patrick Mouratoglou

    Patrick Mouratoglou is arguably one of the most annoying personalities that has taken over the tennis world in recent years :rolleyes: I respect him and even admire him for what he has done to Serena's career and the creation of his academy (I'm all in for any kind of support to young players)...

    Not a fan of Tsitsipas

    I had the chance to read the other thread before it was deleted, and there some really good points about Stef's attitude and behavior. I always got the feeling there was something off about him, that he wasn't very liked by people in the locker room, and I just couldn't get it. He always came...

    I have one question regarding Zverev

    Matt Zemek posted a few days ago an article that touches a little bit on this subject. It's named "Borna Coric And The Happy Shadow Of Alexander Zverev", and he makes a point about how Zverev's early success has made all the focus, expectations and, subsequently, the pressure of his generation...

    2019 Australian Open 4R - [4] Alexander Zverev vs. [16] Milos Raonic

    90% of players his age had four (or three, depending on your appreciation of Murray) ATG type of players completely dominating GS events for more than a decade, an entire generation of players getting lost with lackluster achievements due to that domination, and the whole media expecting for...

    Why Federer fans should get fully behind Tsitsipas for AO win

    Fed doesn't seem very fond of the comparison :confused:

    How can Zverev overcome his mental demons?

    That's exactly what Kvitová is doing now, and it's working great for her:

    How can Zverev overcome his mental demons?

    Maybe that's where the problem is. I'm not saying this is the way it is, I'm just sharing a theory I found very interesting: I was listening to The Tennis Podcast, and David Law and Catherine Whitaker mentioned something along the lines of Zverev's entitlement being a product of his own...

    Don't get me wrong, the pain of seeing both Federer and Zverev lose is still very alive in me. I love Tsitsipas, and I'm trying to see the positives of him having a good result, but no amount of optimism is going to change the small resentment I now have towards him :cry::mad:
