Sounds as if Gimelstob and Labadze would get along just fine.

Actually what bothered me most was not the tacky fratboy crap he spouted but the stuff about wanting to hit her with the ball and if she didn't leave crying he hadn't done his job. I thought that actually was a really unpleasant thing, coming from a very bad place in someone's personality.

You might not have been as bothered if you had heard the actual interview. Both of those comments (and all of the others) were answers to specific questions from the radio show hosts. He was talking about a specific tennis match and playing mind games. There were plenty of body serves/direct volleys in the mixed doubles matches shown from Wimbledon so it's a legitimate tactic, it was just so stupid to talk about it the way he did, even if he really does dislike her for whatever reasons.

But this thread is about Irakli, and Cyborg is right, he's just laughable.

Best twitter posts of the epic match:

@dougrobson - Whoever is supplying Mahut with hair gel needs to ink a sponsorship deal now.

@Wimbledon - FYI, with @Wimbledon live scoring devices, please add 50 to the games in the fifth set of the Isner v Mahut match.

@HolterMedia - Nice to see that a three-day test has come to tennis here @wimbledon.

Re: Labadze: "Women should only open their mouth in bedroom"

Irakli and his dinosaur comments are fairly meaningless (though I'd still pay to see him decked by a woman for it)

It's the more insidious sexism that's the problem these days.

There's no sexism problem in the world at the moment. People mistake comments about WTA not being tennis as sexism.

How much would you pay?


I really have a hard time taking Irakli seriously, but that's based on my own previous encounters with him.


I agree about the insidious sexism. I don't care if any man wants to go on and on about who is hot or who he wants to have sex with as long as that same man can openly admit that women are, as a whole, just as smart and capable as men, period.

Re: Labadze: "Women should only open their mouth in bedroom"

Labadze is a nutter, but if he said that during a match, in the heat of the moment, then it should be taken with a grain of salt. It's different than saying something like that in a press conference or an interview.

Sexism has been cured the world over, apparently.

Good to know.

Re: Labadze: "Women should only open their mouth in bedroom"

Is this Mrs. Norman, and Dick?



Dick Norman rings a bell. Wikipedia says he's the oldest player left on tour. I remember a doubles player similarly named, I think. Maybe it's Dick Stockton...who would be American...not Belgian.


Ease up, a little on Irakli Labadze. We, who have inserted our foot in mouth, and rotated....well, we've all done it.

Re: Labadze: "Women should only open their mouth in bedroom"

Labadze needs to shut up and mow the lawn.


"What kind of shape am I in now? Well round is a shape." said Roddick with a laugh. "I had a very detailed retirement plan, and I feel like I've met every aspect of it: a lot of golf, a lot of carbs, a lot of fried food, and some booze, occasionally — I've been completely committed ... The results have shown."
