...is a throwback to the days of the gentleman amateur who would sink ten pints of an evening then go out the following day and score the winning goal, hit a century or fight umpteen rounds with the heavyweight champion of the day. He is enormously talented and leaves it at that- he doesn't even have a trainer- perhaps because he thinks there are more important things than sport (as indeed there are.) In any other era he would have dominated, but in the age of sports science and ice baths its not going to win him many championships.

This is one side of his sporting personality. The other side is King Rat.

He is a poor sport. The worst kind, the kind that tells an opponent in the middle of a match that his friend 'fucked your girlfriend'. Because he was losing. He throws rackets, screams at umpires and is so much worse than Jimmy Connors ever thought of being. He comes from serious money, so its easy for him to think there are more important things than sport. He doesn't have a trainer because no one will put up with his didoes! I am so glad Rafa beat him today!

It's too bad. If he could harness that excessiveness and learn to be a better sport, he could be a winner. Instead, he's going to hang around the edges until, like a supernova, he burns out from his excesses.

We were watching him yesterday. He's clearly got an enormous talent. If he disciplined it he could be up there with the big three. He went toe to toe with Rafa for three sets and then right at the end decided he'd had enough and just stopped trying. His bad behaviour at the start of the match was like nothing I've ever seen. He was chunnering at the umpire continuously. It's as if he was to create chaos around himself in order to function at his best.

aimed a serve at Rafa's chest. Rafa took it well, and let his playing speak for him. Mr. Kyrigos makes Johnny Mac's bad behavior look not quite so bad...even though it was.
