Well, he's probably no saint. I think it's impossible to achieve what he has if you're a saint. All these top players are selfish and have big egos. They have to. You can't get to the top if you're too modest. But all things considered I think he's a nice guy and a great ambassador for the game. I'm sure that he's a bit cocky as well, but he's earned the right to be, and who wouldn't be in his position? But he's one of those very rare examples (Hingis being the other one) of a player that I love purely for the way they play the game. His tennis is eye candy to me, so he can do no wrong as far as I'm concerned. But the fact that I think that he's a decent bloke doesn't hurt of course.
