Classic Tennis tantrums

Quote

a good one is Resudski at Wimbeldon when he was playing Roddick and he was a break up in the third set or something  it was a very important point that went againt resedski at a crucial point in match.. he had a go at umpire and swore the bbc had to beep it out

Tantrums always remind me of McEnroe - it wouldn't be a match if he didn't have one!  All adds to the 'show'.

McEnroe is king in this department! Even in last years seniors doubles match he was showing more passion than people in the main draw.

You haven't lived unless you saw the golden years of Ilie Nastase, Jimmy Connors and Johnny Mac.

I still would crown Connors king. His use of four letter words was quite stupendous and his venom was all encompassing.

BAH, Today's players are mere amateurs. Smile

Nobody had more fire than Connors. When asked what he felt about his opponents, he described them as sonsofbitches who were taking food out of his own kids' mouths.

Very Happy LOL GrabC that is a great link.

I'd forgotten Goran had to withdraw when he'd broken all his racquets  roflmao  though Safin annoyed the hell out of me when he made it an integral part of his game. ranting

I dont like Safin at all, as regular readers will know.
