my 5 cents on this is ...


Canadian exchange rate inflation. In the US, out thoughts are only worth 2 cents.

Lendl is still thinking in terms of the era he played in.  Back then, the players did not really get along with each other.  He and McEnroe couldn't stand each other for real.  Connors and Mac did like each other, and so on.  There was bickering and backstabbing back then.  The #1 players usually stood off from the other players in the locker room...even Pete didn't 'hang' with other players.  But in this era - things have changed.  Generally the players (ATP players) like each other.  They talk, hang out, joke around, practice with each other, etc.  So I think Lendl is doing an injustice to Murray by having him act like they did back in his day.  Just my thinking....

I missed those old days when they were really rivalries, the hawkeye was not there and the complains to the umpires.
somehow the atmosphere this decade seems like the 60's, (all friends), the difference is the money, public relations/campaigns and the coverage.
now, for example it is strange to see a player, a veteran like stepanek, showing the finger to his opponent, tipsarevic.
It's almost like they all work for the same company these days.
While I understand that the pro tour is indeed a business and that traveling with the same group year in and out can't help but bring people together, I often wonder if this isn't just another symptom of homogenization. :(
my 5 cents on this is ... I don't think that Djokovic, Nadal and Roger really like one another at all ... they are all just trying to be politically correct ... they are big competitors.  not sure I like it. I preferred Nole when he seemed to be a villain back in 2007/08. Nowadays, they all act, they say nice things ... oh, honey darhling, you are great ...  no, no you are are ...  I've, personally never liked Rafa /Roger butt-kissing ... so fake ... but whatever ... prime Roger hated a young Novak ... now when Nole is #1 and a multiple GS champion, Fed is praising him like there is no end ... meh ... should go back to Nadal/Ferrer match ... I just paused it so I can skip stupid commercials.  :))
That's what I just said.

Let me rephrase MT style-

BunchaPCb**ches.


Perhaps that's why I'm not a fanboy of the top 3.  Winky Winky Baby!

 How Andy Murray will get to the top ? If Andy can win the Year end & then go on & take Ozz,he will be very close.This year Andy does not seem to worry about Masters points,2013 he might make a lot of points from Masters with the way things have gone in 2012.
