Echagaray's meltdown in Dallas

Something very extraordinary happened today at the Dallas Challenger. Bruno Echagaray was serving 5-6 down in the tiebreak against Jesse Witten, hit the first serve in the net, and was then foot faulted on the second serve to lose the match! He was up a double break in that set and his reaction after losing the match was one of complete shock and then he went mad throwing the racket across the court and attacking his chair... The complete match can be downloaded from http://braingame.dartfishnet.com/pag...3&g=438&id=436

Echagaray's meltdown in Dallas

Something very extraordinary happened today at the Dallas Challenger. Bruno Echagaray was serving at 5-6 down in the deciding tiebreak, hit the first serve in the net, and was then foot faulted (!) for the first time in the match on the second serve to lose the match. Echagaray's reaction was one of complete shock and then he went mad throwing his racket across the court and attacking the chair where he'd been sitting at change-overs. The complete match can be downloaded from http://braingame.dartfishnet.com/pag...3&g=438&id=436
Has anyone ever seen anyone lose a close professional match on a foot fault before?

Wow, thanks for taping the match...I've never seen a call, or a chair attacked, like that before.

I don't think you can make that call on 2nd serve at MP, it didn't even look like a foot falut!

Thanks for the link. Hilarious stuff with Bruno throwing his racket over to the other side of the court, and turning over that chair.

Re: Echagaray's meltdown in Dallas

The guy who runs the tournament/club came to my town last week and helped me with my mental game. He told us there would be a challenger at his club next week but I didn't think anything of it.

I hope he talks to this guy about the mental side of tennis, he clearly needs it.

Re: Echagaray's meltdown in Dallas

Ridiculous call to make at that time.

Champions deserve whatever they win playing within the laws of the game
