It's a great analogy actually. Wozniacki was critisized far more while she was number one than Maradonna was when he was going through a slump. Besides, let me get a bit cocky: If I was a professional athlete I don't think I would care much about what they would write about me because, well, the reason why I would be competing while they are just writing about it is that I can and they can't. I mean, why should a Federer, or yes, even a Ivanovic care about what Pete Bodo writes? He's just a fat guy who would probably have a heart attack if he had to run 100m.
