Fish, who also lost in straight sets to Czech Tomas Berdych on Wednesday, directed angry words at Dimitrov while the pair were shaking hands after the singles at Burswood Dome.
During the doubles, Fish appeared to hit a ball straight at the Bulgarian and then approached him as he sat in a chair during a change of ends.
Dimitrov jumped to his feet and the two men argued fiercely before the match referee rushed on to the court and stood between them. It was nearly a minute before order was restored.
Fish really spoiled the Grisho's win over him with this kind of attitude. I though Grigor was very kind with him during the match seeing how much frustrated Mardy was and when he got a luck net cord he approched to the net and appologiesd...really Grigor said in an intwerview with Bulgarian National TV that Mardy said some words during the match and the handshake which were not nice and also commented that apparatnly beeing a top 10 player you can afford those kind of behavior without any sort of warnings. Grigor is hot tempered, we now that and that's probably why at the end he reacted to Mardy's provocation, however I really think it wasn't his fault for this unpleasant situation. I hope Grisho will keep the positive memory over that match and not so much on that incident.
