I don't mind the Fed haters. They do it because they recognise the greatness of Fed and cannot argue against his awesomeness. They mangle stats, they claim running side to side is as much fun to watch as inspirational shot making. I mean, they are wrong, obvs.The moment Djokovic retires is when 90% of his fans disappear and never watch another tennis match. This is not an observation tainted with malice, it's simply fact. None of them know anything about tennis history or care one thing about it. There are a number of outstanding Nole fans here, everyone knows who they are and respects their input here. The rest are far more into hating on Fed 24/7 even when he has played only 6 matches this entire year. One would suppose it's envy and jealousy. When Novak passes Fed for weeks at #1, it will be much more about embracing the Fed envy/hatred for most of them, than being happy for their guy. It's a bizarre and sad way of fandom, but it's ubiquitous in that particular fan base.
The ones I don't get are those who just aren't fussed. I don't know how you watch Fed and go, meh.
