    Why aman bhai? Omala, if you had been in my place in that Indian national final against Paes all those years ago, you'd be calling him an asshol*e as well.

    I read that Paes was difficult to work with (to put it mildly), but I don't remember what happened. Care to share a summary so I don't have to do some research? :p

    Bender bhai ... awfully bad memories that I'd rather not recollect but I'll do it for you. In the final of the Indian National tournament (sometime in the 90s), I played Paes. He was heavily favored to win and indeed, the match was rather one sided. To give you an idea, it was like Federer or Nadal at their peak playing Carreno Busta or Kevin Anderson. Now with the result being utterly predictable even before the match starts, can you imagine either of Federer or Nadal fist pumping their opponents unforced errors, on points that are not even critical? Now that was exactly what that fuc*ker did against me. Fist pumping my double faults and numerous other points where I committed an unforced error, and all of this in a tournament that most non-Indian players don't even know exists!

    Look at that video soundog posted showing Paes' disdain for a tennis legend. If 'class' bit this guy on his a*rse, he wouldn't know it!

    Bhai, I have reasons for considering Paes an asshol*e. Now I don't know if Aman bhai has any reason for calling me an idiot, other than possibly that he's a huge fan of Paes! :)

    As the obvious underdog I'd take this as a compliment.
