Sony Tennis Open: 20th-31st March 2013

Benoit, you legend. You give that racist piece of sh*t what he deserves. I despise Michael.
Michael has just gone out 6-4, 6-1 to Fognini so that should make you happy.

Because he used a racial slur towards a fan.Here's a few articles on it.

Thanks.  I'd forgotten about that disgraceful and unprovoked comment he made in IW last year.

I've watched it again too because I'd be very happy if there were more matches like that.  Such a shame that Llodra had to go and spoil things just because he was feeling frustrated.  At least Andy takes it out on himself, not other people.

I know!I mean,treating a tennis fan horribly in any way is unacceptable-but the way he took it out on that poor woman too-and his attitude over it all.The whole thing is just horrible.

It was his attitude afterwards that really got to me.  Trying to make a joke of it all was just plain sick.

So that gives Somdev Devverman a w/o to play Djokovic, unless Rosol knocks him out, which seems extremely unlikely.  I wonder if any of Andy's opponents will withdraw?  He had two w/os last year - Raonic and Nadal.

Completely agree.Horrible,just horrible.

 No,apparently Edouard Roger Vasselin will play Devverman,as Lopez had had a bye,so can be replaced.
