Why is Jon Wertheim so disliked?

I was just reading another thread and there seems to be a lot of bad feelings towards him. I don't understand why. I like his columns and I look forward to the mailbag every week! But apparently I'm in the minority as far as wtaworld goes. Please someone explain why!

lol @ dementrova. that's basically it. the same reason that every commentator is disliked on these boards -- because one day, they told it like it is about a certain player, and the fans haven't stopped crying

"It’s always been, ‘I wonder what she’s got, Sharapova?’, because I don’t see that she’s got something that special… Or do you know? Can you tell? What’s so exceptional about her?”

If speaking the truth makes me an annoying person, then so be it.

Plus a few of us are jealous and want his gig! (Although I suppose after a couple months of every one of my columns being about ED a lot of people would hate me more than him )

Come on, his tongue's way up Venus' butt, he wrote a whole book about how the whole tour is jealous of Venus. Then, like last year, he's saying that Venus has had a better career than Martina Hingis, like it's a no-brainer. I can see coming out either way on that one, but it's not an easy analysis.

That's basically it. Many williams fans are psycho-obsessive or just really immature and can't take any criticism.
I love Lindsay and Serena, but most of the time when they get criticism, it's deserved. Besides, everybody's entitled to their own opinion anyway.
