i read somewhere that even djokovic's colour is not considered "pure" white..........bulls**t, are brits and americans the only whites? there are several mind-blowing colours on earth..........according to me, indian, pakistani and spanish women are the most beautiful and seductive species on earth..........
Crazy discussion. Rafa's a little white boy, he just loves the beach and tans quickly.
I think Rafa's problems started when the big dogs at Wimbledon sort of agreed that the sleeveless shirts and his demeanor on court were quite unsophisticated -- it even made the paper! He didn't "fit" the mold of the "upperclass" player. I believe it said he "looks like a construction worker". Some of that stuck and since he was a clay court player initially, he just hasn't been able to shake the perception of being lower class.
I don't know, but I sure get tired of it. Right now in the Davy/Murray match, Murray has been declared the next #1 on FIVE occasions. Get's old.
Maybe this thread should have been called "Tennis Minority Report"
. It's of very little interest to anyone and it isn't understood by those who haven't watched it and felt it. I'm certainly not comparing this Rafa thing to Black or American Indian or Hispanic or any other real minority, but it has some of the same dynamics. Everyone who isn't involved just goes pffft.
To those who go "pfffft"
