Nope.  Never heard of CJ either.  But then I don't watch very much TV.

Barry Milnes (Not sure how it is spelled) a real pain according to him Andy is the only one in the whole world who swears on a tennis court.

Andy has been fined for swearing but so has a certain Mr Federer too Very Happy  Not the worst though, I think Ferrer has been fined the most for that.  I'll have to find the article search

Novak Djokovic: 4,500 US dollars (500 for racket abuse at 2007 Wimbledon, 500 for ball abuse at 2010 Wimbledon, 500 for racket abuse at 2010 US Open, 1500 for coaching at 2011 Australian Open, 1500 for racket abuse at 2011 Wimbledon).
Rafael Nadal: 2,000 US dollars (coaching at the 2010 Wimbledon Championships).
Roger Federer: 1,500 US dollars (audible obscenity at the 2009 US Open)
Andy Murray: 1,800 US dollars (audible obscenity at the 2007 US Open, and racket abuse at the 2011 French Open).
David Ferrer: 9,250 US dollars (5,250 for audible obscenities, and 8 counts of racket abuse at 500 dollars a go, so 4,000 for that).

There's an interesting top 10 on there of the worst offenders - based on fines from the last 6 years.

Fascinating!  Djoko really is a bad boy naughty and I don't know why he wasn't fined for racket abuse in last year's USO final when he slowly ground his racket into the court until it was a manged mess.

Got special pleasure though when Fed was fined for swearing at the umpire during that USO final - I can even remember the exact expletive! lol

Seriously dislike know-it-alls and smarter-than-thou people who, if something isn't done their way, or to their liking, then it isn't the right way.

When people on this website constantly use exclamation marks at the end of their sentences. Might as well revert to using capital letters! Because you always seem to be shouting!

I know I'm paranoid. But am I paranoid enough?

When you're washing up and the action of pushing the cloth inside a mug squirts a load of water up your sleeve.

Haha!  Or the minute you turn your battery operated toothbrush on, just before it gets to your gob and you end up with toothpaste splash all over your lovely black dress.  Frown

The solution to this is blindingly obvious, Elly! (sorry for the ! Veronica wink)


Just happened to me, so was reminded of it - people who stand in front of you in busy bus queues and don't move out of the way when your bus comes but it isn't the one they want, so, despite trying to shove past them, you end up missing the bus and have to wait ages for the next.
