    Yeah, I wouldn't mind seeing a link to that. If he is secretly a prick, he's done a very good job of hiding it and getting all of the media on side.

    Not sure hes a cunt, but Ive seen interviews with him where hes come off as incredibly arrogant, and not in a tongue-in-cheek Zlatan kind of way.

    It wouldn't surprise me if it were true, there's always seemed to be a fakeness to him, I'd like to see some evidence though.

    Maybe he doesn't pay his fair share of taxes given his enormous fortune. Still, I doubt many high earning sports stars do. A lot of tennis players live in Monte Carlo, probably for tax reasons.

    I dunno, to me he seems to have a genuine, infectious love for the game and everything about it. Sure there has been a few times where he might have said something that comes across as arrogant, but they could be unintentional, or a result of him being put on the spot in an interview.

    I guess it's possible that he's a psychopath who manipulates his image and is an all-round cunt as soon as the cameras go off. But at the moment, I just don't see it.

    they say he was a hothead when he was Young and playing Juniors, and there is one Story where he might have trown a fit in a drug store cause they didn't have something he ordered and wanted to pick up. But other than that there isn't much hate going around for him.

    I'm sure there is more to him that this mr. perfect Image he has. There must, but him being a cunt is far off. Also we shoulnd't Forget that all interviews you see is him speaking a foreign language.

    Smug and arrogant, I can definitely see. That doesn't make him a cunt though imo. And some of that may be a language thing, if I'm being generous.

    I'd be pretty smug and arrogant if I'd had the kind of tennis career he's had. I would at least snort some coke of a hooker's tits, Robocop style.

    And I'd have a fleet of 6000 SUX's as well.

    I remember a post match interview when he beat Roddick and while Federer was trying to sound magnanimous he said something like, "I am sure you will win it one day". Roddick looked like he might go over and punch him. He always sounds a little patronising in victory.

    What he should have said was, "you'll never win it because I'm just better than you in every way, you Americunt".

    @Mr_Sleep

    Almost as good as Muguruza's victory speech when she said "i grew up watching Venus"

    was fucking hilarious, should have seen Venus's face.

    I still think this is something that has to do with Translation. You will win it one day, or one day will be your day is something we say to cheer someone up. Or the day will come when you will be the winner.
    It is suposed to mean that the other Person is good enough for it, but was just not lucky enough today, but could be at any other day.

    I don't think he means it the way you guys are calling it out. But yeah again, what do you want to say in such a Moment. you ain't shit, so you lost.

    @THFourteen hah, I didn't see that, brilliant 😀

    I do think it is difficult to sound anything other than patronising during a victory interview. I don't blame Federer or any others for that.

    My wife's slept with him. Said he's really selfish in bed as well.

    That shouldn't even count as news.

    Australians are (mistakenly, imo) prepared to put up with or make excuses for dickhead sportspeople if they're good (see: Nick Kyrgios). But Tomic isn't even performing anymore, so out he goes.

    Tennis hasn't been the same for the past two-ish years.

    Djokovich was unstoppable but then he finally got beat by some crappy player and he keeps getting beat ever since. Not even Agassi coaching him has helped.

    Murray only won Wimbledon 2016 due to Djokovich and Federer getting knocked out early, again by some random crappy players. So he won Wimbledon again and was finally ranked world number 1.

    Sherapova was banned for two years. Serena's had a baby.

    It's been crappy past two years.
