Tsitsipas and Fognini few words exchanged

Fognini was recomending to Tsitsipas a new brand of pasta since the greek was tired of eating the Barilla the tour forces players to eat.

it's all about the lush, Borg-like hair
Borg had the aura and the game to back it up. He was also 10 million times better looking than the Greek and had a far better bod. ********** looks unbathed and borderline filthy to me. Bjorn was at least clean. :)

It’s mystifying how Tsitsipas has any fans. What a complete tool he is.
Well he arguably has the nicest playing style of the NextGen so I can see why he has some fans. Heck, I used to like him before he started pushing for on-court coaching. To me that's where it all went downhill, then the RG Final loss, the extended bathroom breaks, the rest is history.

A shame. Too bad, so sad.

Nothing wrong with on-court coaching. These players sure as hell need it. We'd get some better looking matches.
 
Even though I am Greek, I honestly can't stand Stefano's phoniness and pseudo-spiritualism crap. Much more respect to Maria Sakkari, who, even though not as talented as Stef, tries to improve her tennis and not solve the world's metaphysical problems.
Who do you think is more spiritual, Tsitsipas or Djokovic?

Why did you like him before then? I could already see he was a huge tool even before all this.

I wanted to like Tsitsipas as the 1HBH heir-apparent to Sampras and Fed but he's just not. I've ended up hate-watching him whenever his matches are on.

His social media antics somewhat irritated me, but I was able to set it aside thanks to his attacking playing style, which we don't have the privilege of seeing much from the younger generation these days.

Alas, it came to a point earlier this year where his cringy off-court behavior rubbed me in such a way that I cannot ignore it anymore. I can't root for him on-court, I just keep thinking of his cringe attitude.

Not only that but his vision for the game is not something I'm aligned with. Promoting on-court coaching to me is a big No.

Fair enough. Yeah the stuff he's done this year has basically made him the most hated person on the tour right now. Every opponent is now making sarcastic remarks to him at the net after every match and people watching hate him too.

If he can pick himself up, shut all critics down and thrash the tour with major wins in a "him against the world" type of affair, I could see myself rooting for him again.

But of course, with the way he's been playing recently.. All chokes on-court involved since 2020, I rather let it go.
 
I think that Djokovic, regardless of being right or wrong in this, truly believes in the metaphysical pyramids-channel-inner-energy thing. Stefanos looks like a big faker, a post-adolescence boy speaking about things he cannot even begin to understand.
I never knew pyramids were spiritual. I thought cones were more spiritual, though toruses are definitely holier.

What did they say?
I believe Fabs was giving Stef grief about his pop's illegal coaching. Stef pulling the usual, "who me?" act.
Fabs not getting much support from the chair ump who probably recalls him referring to her colleague as a puttana.
These two guys are brilliant players with horrible personalities, no sympathy for either.

Because Fab gets mad on court he has a horrible personality? What a laugh. He’s incredibly charismatic off court and has little ego, unlike the Greek, who is a total narcissist and a-hole. This is a “horrible” personality?

I agree Fabs is charismatic and has a great game - when things are going his way, when he's in a good mood, and when he feels like trying. Fab's problem (to me) is he is a tanker and there is nothing worse you can be in sport. Fabio cheats the sport and the fans when he does it. Stef just cheats his opponents.
