Queens 2012 - The Other Players

Not wishing to rush to judgement here, not knowing the full circumstances but a grandfather is a lot different from a wee niece.

We hailed him a hero here? I doubt it.

Unless you're talking about the media which doesn't matter because the media didn't seem to mind Nalbandian playing on either. It would be very risky for the media to take a negative stance on an event like that of Nalbandian's godchild or Djokovic's grandfather, so it's no surprise.

And neither did you........
I think I inferred that I didn't hear or see what he did or did not say not say then or later, but I feel that he has suffered enough for his action.

I think what he's saying is a young girl dying is much more tragic than an old man, for obvious reasons. Therefore, the family of the child is going to need even more support but Nalbandian chose not to offer that.

Perhaps he wasn't at all close to his godchild or relatives, who knows.

Couldn't have put it better myself, thanks, Mark. Loss of an elderly relative is sad, loss of a younger one tragic. But  every relationship is different - who are we to judge from outside and afar?

I'd be close if the child was gold.

The giveaway is Nalbandian's kick was upwards, central and full force landing on the guys shin whilst sidefooted avoiding injury himself.If he only wanted to kick the board he'd kick at the corner.

interesting too were his psychopathic ramblings afterwards. Self pity, apologising to the crowd for the loss of his play - not for the violence. Then blaming the ATP!lol. A linesman's brief might want to consider looking into the past for a bit of previous


Yes, we need PT to chip in here but, in that moment of red mist, I suspect that linesman personified all the evil of the ATP.

Nalbandian is a tortured guy who always knew he had what it took to win slams, but could never really find the motivation to pursue it enough. His true passion is rally driving, but he was sadly lacking in the necessary talent.

Ten years of frustration all came out yesterday afternoon.

The child was also called Nalbandian - presumably a blood relative of some kind. Maybe a godchild but also a nephew?

His cousin apparently (from googling the name of the poor child).

What some other folks have been saying about Dave: http://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/0/tennis/18478928
Next stop for him is Boodles on Wednesday, 3rd match, against Almagro. (Andy is 1st match @ 2:30.. don't know who he's playing against yet.)
I wonder what kind of reception he'll receive from the Pimm's Brigade?  shocking

They'll be too busy sampling the Michelin-starred food on offer to notice his presence.

I think this is way out of proportion to what happened, it was an accident, he said he thought the board was screwed down and wouldn't move, it was reported that he went and seen the linesman personally to apologise, away from the media, when I first saw it I thought the linesman was play acting a bit as he first of all stood up, looked directly at where the TV camera was and then decided to roll onto the ground, you also bleed a lot from a cut on the shin so it usually looks worse than it is and he didn't need to have any treatment so that sounds not serious at all, linesmans 15 minutes of fame, get a life mate, there are more serious "crimes" for the police to looking at instead of this time wasting. shocking
