Do you believe that pros should try harder?

To win, I mean?

As an example, when they take an L—beatdown or nailbiter, all the same—are you left scratching your head as to why they didn't go for the win?

It's the same thing with serves into the bottom of the net called faults, incidentally.

Why wouldn't they challenge that?

Seems to me that it comes down to effort.

I agree with all of you.

I mean, let me be clear:

I'm not expecting anyone to give two ****s.

But a single bowel movement is not asking too much.

You have to differentiate between the blatant tankers and those who just are so mentally weak they give up after they lose the first set. The (sporadic) tankers are very few in number: Nick and Tomic primarily, but also Fabio. Yet there are countless others who just throw in the towel once they get down a set. Those types are Gasquet, Monfils, etc. Obviously all of the should try harder. It's incomprehensible to me that Nadal is practically the only guy who is still fighting for every point even when down two sets and a break.

Yes! Djoko should try harder to become as popular as Fedal because I love his cringey performances ... "I had to practice in empty pools and just threw hearts at you ... WHY DON'T YOU LOVE ME?"
