Some sportswriter asked Roger about his dropping to number 2 soon. His answer was "I don't care".
Some writer asked Rafa about his becoming number 1 soon. His answer was "I don't really think much about it"
Now the writers run off and build a story around these comments. Are you kidding me? Just write your stinking story and leave a guy who just lost in peace. Leave a guy who is playing the best tennis in the world alone to work on keeping it up. Let them play while you do the writing. No wonder Serena Williams is blistered for her comments after losing at the Wimbledon final. I think a player after a tough loss should say, "None of your stinking business" to the dumb sportswriter who asks, "How does it feel to lose?"
