I appreciate the commentary on the Nadal "sandbagging" techniques. You're correct - hardly anyone talks about it but it is seems to be his M.O. It has this intangible unsportsmanlike quality. It's a "well, if I lose, I told you so" kind of approach. Poor form. Much prefer the athletes who play their hearts out and, win or lose, congratulate their opponents by simply acknowledging they were outplayed on that day. No excuses, no sandbagging in advance...simply good sportsmen.

Hey barry, i happened to meet Ryan Harrison at Wimbledon last year when not too many seemed to know who he was. I've been keeping an eye on his progress and I reckon he could be a top ten player in the future. I'd like to hear your opinion on him, as well as other rising stars, such as Tomic, Raonic, and Dmitrov,a lthough as i look at their talents now and where I see they may progress to, I don't see a particular great rivalry emerging from any of them but what do you think?
