Seems very cocky in these wtt matches. Am i wrong in this observation?
Yeah I think that he is really cocky. After watching him play a few matches on the WTT, he looks like he thinks he is some hot sh*t. I am now wondering why he is acting like this.
I heard he beat Sampras, so maybe that gives him confidence to act like "some hot sh*t."
That and he is Now at the Highest point of his career right now, and also at the peak of his confidence level. Why you ask ? he is probably the best singles player in WTT right now, singles field in WTT is not that strong. and also he won the Bronx challenger event just 2 weeks ago, which had fairly strong field considering it was a challenger event. so you have your answer.:grin:
I saw him play Jeff Tarango in a WTT singles match. Seriously a current ATP player ranked inside the top 200 has no business playing a 41 year old has-been who was never really a great singles player. But he didn't come across cocky to me. He has improved since the last time I saw him on TV (last year WTT since he rarely makes ESPN). His serve looks better or maybe it was just Tarango hasn't seen a 120 mph + serve in about 5 years
I thought Jeff bought a farm in suburban france and was making wines ??
no he divorced the French Chick- yes the one from the famous Wimbledon incident. He is back in California or that is what they said on TV.
Its hard to tell with him. I was a ballboy for a couple of Sam's matches and definitely sensed some cockiness but it kind of seemed like it could be is normal attitude.
I grew up in NorCal and I'm roughly the same age as Sam. He never seemed like that cocky of a person. It seemed like he was always in the top 3 ranked juniors for NorCal growing up and he was always a pretty nice guy. I saw him absolutely demolish some opponents and then say nice things about them afterwards. I saw some interview video of him after a challenger final and he didn't sound cocky at all.
