They just showed this on tv, during tsonga match, he will be asked to explain after the match.

Could this mean a ban?

Duty free would never do that. He was probably chatting up some babies for after the match.

If he was in direct contact with his coach the whole match and got rocked 6-1 in the final set, he should probably find a new coach.

Re: Dudi Sela reading text messages from his coach at change overs

Q. On the television coverage, it appeared at a change of ends you were in your bag on a phone or something.
DUDI SELA: Yeah, my phone was vibrating. It was on. So I tried to turn it off.

Q. Did they speak to you about that?
DUDI SELA: Yeah, he told me, Did you turn it off? The umpire told me, so I turned it off.

Q. Who was it?
DUDI SELA: Who was it what?

Q. Who was on the phone?
DUDI SELA: No, I got so many messages. I don't know. It was so many messages. So many phone calls from Israel.

Q. From the Prime Minister?
DUDI SELA: No, not yet. If I would win, maybe.

Wow. That answer wasn't shady at all. Very convincing.

Turn off your facebook mobile idiot.

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.

Yeah Dudi, if you were just trying to turn your phone off why were you looking at it on two separate change of ends?

Wouldn't be surprised if Sela cheated with his phone, to be honest.

There is no rule in the rulebook that you cant read text messages during the change over. some players take notes and have a notebook with them...just flip to a page #5 if you're in this situation or that situation vs this player or that play...same thing to me

but he was probably booking a flight home.

dudi
i guess no cyber sex allowed during matches ?

justin bieber is not the best in history.
funk was better than rap.
techno not better than classic rock.

numbers are not everything.
