I think we as tennis fans strive for perfection too much
Obviously, we strive for perfection in both ways: when it's our fave they're never good enough or when they're "against" they're too good

Exactly like this maybe that's the reason my feeling for Nole went a little down after the first slam of 2012, he was too perfect winning everything and I was happy for Rafa when he came back winning on clay.. And now it's the same again with Novak being too strong since the start of the season and Rafa having to climb up again the rankings (not that #5 is bad...)

And I totally agree here too I'd never have a problem with Roger's perfection, he's just a pleasure for the eyes when he plays and I agree with what I heard on tv today by Ljubicic (whom is a friend of Roger), they said how they'd rather see him more rarely (like now, he's right taking a break until may) but seeing him 3-4 more years playing with caution and keeping healthy (say, 15 tournaments per year), than seeing him play a lot (like 20) but having to stop in 1-2 years.
And... I wish I was there during Chrissie's years, she must have been a Queen on clay. I wonder how she was when she had that 125 matches streak on clay over 6 years
