I like Novak Djokovic.
Federer is impregnable. He is as difficult to like, and as easy to admire as Tiger, or Jordan, or, say, a Sachin. Rafa is far easier to like, but he is just too tough, just too streetsmart, and just too much of a ‘stud’ for us average joe tennis-fans.
Novak tried hard. Novak is talented, but not in a Federer way, in a nice, Sampras way. Novak pokes fun of others (in a very harmless way) by imitating them (did you see the Sharapovak? Or the Nadalovic? Superb!). Novak is nice and kinda cool in interviews. And also, Novak is skinny, has spiky hair, and is very, very geeky!
Novak tries so hard to be liked, it hurts….
Nerds of the world unite!
