From my latest column at AOL Fanhouse
I do not get overly emotional watching tennis. Well, sometimes you can’t help yourself. But in my job, it’s important to try to stay dispassionate so as not to color your views, alter the picture of reality you are supposed to paint. Here is one thing I know, though:
Sam Querrey drives me crazy.
There is no way that this guy is who he is. Tall, strong, fast, and able to hit all shots. Why doesn’t he care?
Why the heck doesn’t he care?
Querrey, seeded No. 18 and one of the leaders of the next generation of American tennis, folded up again in a major. He does it all the time. He lost Monday in the first round of the Australian Open, 5-7, 6-2, 3-6, 6-1, 8-6 to Lukasz Kubot.
Querrey seemed to be picking at his fingernails on match point.
