The most hated man at the US Open?

I've never seen anyone disliked as much at the US Open as Greg Rusedski.

The crowd supports Americans of course but often with a lot of support for other players. For example, Corretja was treated very warmly last night, despite the pro-Roddick atmosphere. Corretja has always been popular here and there were lots of shouts "Vamos, Alex."

With Rusedski, it doesn't matter who he's playing. The whole crowd was rooting for Paradorn the other night.

I don't know if it's the way he adjusts his socks between every point, or the negativity and arrogance he just exudes.

His incredibly unsportsmanlike comments about Sampras will not help him in the future ("I lost the match. He didn't win it.")

So true, plus the fact that before the match, he was quoted saying something like "Sampras does not frighten anybody anymore, I am looking way beyond that match"

Well, his (Rusedski's) stupidity frightens me !

IMO Rusedski's comments warrant the reaction he got from the crowd!

He must have been looking towards his plane ride.

You have to answer for Santino, Carlo.

I always knew he was a jerk

In the middle of the night
I go walking in my sleep
Through the desert of the truth
To the river so deep
We all end in the ocean
We all start in the streams
We're all carried along
By the river of dreams
In the middle of the night
