How strange because I always thought Stefanos was quite even tempered, but I suppose stress, heat and frustration, and it was an extremely close match, can bring out the worst in anyone. I'm glad though that his Mum didn't hesitate to give him a good talking to there and then, and I'm sure Dad had something to say as well, so maybe next time he'll think twice before he throws a hissy fit on court!
Yes it was really bad and it must have hurt the umpire so much, the poor man!
But yes I remember Denis stayed in bed for 3 days afterwards! I do think Denis felt really bad about it and he never meant it to happen.
I think Denis has remembered that incident and tries to be more aware of that sort of thing happening again.
As I am sure Stefanos will, he loves his family, he would never have achieved what he has today without their love \support , money and sacrifices, as a young Tennis player growing up in Greece their was nothing from any where else.
He has such a high profile now, I suspect his press conference was just a down playing of the incident, I do see him not only as an intelligent young player but also a caring young man , so i do believe he will learn by it
The test will come for him in the not to distant future, when I believe he needs to decide whether he separates coaching from family,it seemed to work for Nadal, not to do it , but..
