Milos in Montreal touching the net against Del Potro and umpire didn't see it?

Clifford

Bring on Justine!

Hewitt against Blake....US Open??

Leizel Huber hitting a ball after it bounced twice and pretending it was a legal hit. This was on match point. Her and Raymond did lose the match, though.

Leon

USO 11 Doubles final, Melzer & Petzschner vs Fyrstenberg & Matkowski, breakpoint.

Petzschner returned the ball with his leg. No doubt he knew that. See one of most obvious youtube video.
And MP eventually won, alas. History is ambivalent.
For me, the most disgusting case. Since then, I can't stand Petzschner and not respect Melzer too much.

Gary Moser

Wow, that makes Gonzalez a REPEAT OFFENDER: He did the same exact thing at the 2008 Olympics!

Hall of Shame champion Gonzo. Glad he is gone, so good !!

Leon

Love your humour, Gary!

Replays showed the Huber violation clearly, too. Mirza and Vesnina jumped up and down and hugged... they knew they won. Raymond hung at the back of the court, looking confused. I guess if I get into my most charitable frame of mind, I can say "yes... it is within the realm of possibility that Huber was lost in the moment and didn't realize what happened." But I don't believe it for a minute. (And, from my perspective, cheating against Mirza at match point is as close to a mortal sin as you can get.) Melzer/Petzschner, however.... ball hits your leg, you know it. Milos had to have known too, think I.

Gary Moser

Thanks, Leon. I try.

But that's impossible because Olympics happen every three years!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Leon

OK, OK, TP, like your one, too.

Stella

Justine calling Clijsters ball out ( when it wasn't ) and then winning the event -- AO 2004. Still makes me mad

Stella

I'm a big milos fan but this was not his finest moment.

Stella

Olympics are every 4 years -- 2016, 2012, 2008 , 2004 etc.

so 2009 never happened

Stella

going waaaay back 1985 USO Flach and Seguso against Noah and Leconte. Ball grazes Flach's hair , He doesn't admit --- waiting for the ump to call it . Knew it had happened.


Leon

Oh, my...it went crazy!
Dear Stella, you are the best - against those silly men desperately pretending to be witty.

Stella

Men are from Mars etc etc..

And I go ballistic if someone calls me " dear "

Leon

Sorry then. In the village I live it sounds normal. Far from Canada, pity.

Surely there is a difference between "Dear Stella" and "Stella dear". Do both send you ballistic?

Stella

Dear Stella is fine. Stela dear drives me nuts --- it's how they talk to little old ladies in England when they are condescending

Nedl: On-court coaching - Brazenly, remorselessly and endlessly.

Federer: Sorest and most ungracious loser in the history of sports.

sperry

Thanks... good thing they won it anyway... Ida blown up a building or two if they had lost.

sperry

Most brazen... yeah... nadal: "where should I serve it?" Tony tells him. Comical. But you can do and say what you want when you have a big enough name.

Clifford

Yup- that's the one.
The Hewitt example was when he accused a line judge of conspiring against him because the official and Blake both had dark skin!

This entire thread is owned by Serena -- biggest cheat in tennis history. You can shut it down now.
