players should be warned for being rude to ball kids.

I hate it when you see players being rude to balls kids. There is just no need for it. I would rather see a Player warned and fined for giving it out to a ball kid than for smashing there own racket.

Clement should be banned.

I've also seen this behavior from Clement live in Rosmalen! Really no need to be that rude to those kids..

Re: players should be warned for being rude to ball kids.

Clement has always been an arse clown with ball kids. His form is longer than Ivo Karlovic is tall.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

Re: players should be warned for being rude to ball kids.

If Clement was fined for everytime he was a prick to a ballkid, then he'd be bankrupt.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".

Re: players should be warned for being rude to ball kids.

If the rule was implemented from the start Clement would have retired in 2001 due to monetary restraints.

Re: players should be warned for being rude to ball kids.

It should be enforced, why should the kids have to put up with abuse. Both fine them and issue warnings.

I agree
Its fine to get angry at yourself, everyone has a bad day utters a curse at their own actions but taking it out on a ballkid is wrong

Yeah that's a fair point, abuse of another person should be looked upon as poor behaviour more so than abusing an instrument.

Re: players should be warned for being rude to ball kids.

Taking anger out of a child who is happy to watch professionals live is totally wrong.

The ball kids in Rosmalen were poorly trained. Even other players were annoyed although they were not as "expressive" as old Arnaud...
