Oh boy, where do I start (and must say I'm surprised but not necessarily disappointed to see a more "controversial" thread like this in the normally calm waters of CCL
But, now that I have been given the opportunity, I can finally come out and say:
NO I AM NO LONGER A FAN OF LLEYTON, AND NEVER REALLY WAS!!! (phew what a relief).
I'd come across him before I'd even heard of Kim Clijsters, but never took to him. When I became a Kim fan I did my very best to grow to like him, because I thought he must have some good qualities if Kimmy was with him (and I daresay he has, but I will never get to see them, so can only guess what they might be).
I admit I went in LLL a bit and said some nice things about him, but that was all part of my process of trying to get to like him (in much the same way that you kid yourself that you like all those horrible vegetables that your mother makes you eat when you are little
But it was always a struggle for me and somehow I never thought Kim and Lleyton would last (although I can't say that I take any pride in the fact of being proved right, because I know how awfully painful it is when a long term relationship ends).
So I'm totally with Bram on this one: tolerated him when he was Kim's lover, but now he leaves me cold and I find him an irritating, obnoxious, whining mummy's boy with skinny legs (yuk!).
Now I can go back to devoting all my spare time to supporting Nalbandian and Grosjean.
Sorry Lleyki fans, that's just the way I feel.
