There are just too many posters on these threads trying to stir up trouble and hatred.
Lleyton is not a bad kid. On the court he can come across as a tough customer at times, but off the court he has never done anything wrong - I think he comes across as a pretty decent guy. I think the big problem is the press. I don't think he is keen on them, esp after he has been given a rough time by them over the years (even by the Aussie journos). I don't blame him for being media shy. After all, he's a tennis player first and foremost. I think he might even be a little shy. Cut him some slack. How would some of you guys handle the spotlight and the press on your case all the time? Some people would like him hung for swearing or hitting some damn flowers on the side of the court...
In fact, we should cut all the players some slack. There is far too much negativity and hatred on these boards. How about some sunshine and happiness. After all, what you sow, so shall you reap.
