Roddick's post-match outburst against the umpire?

does anyone know if he will/can be fined for his profanity-filled outburst after beating Bellucci? Are the rules the same or different if a player addresses an umpire in such a manner after a match is finished? I agree Roddick had a play on the ball and the umpire made the wrong call, but Roddick once again shows how much of a jackass he is with this kind of behavior


and of course his worshipper Patty Mac says nothing while it happens

No, it'll be swept under the carpet, just as it was in the past with him.

Should have been kicked out of 2 or 3 tournaments I can think of, and he wasn't even penalised a point.

I thought this was the Men's tennis forum and not the Women's tennis forum. Change your tampon.

he should-it's against the rules to swear at linespeople, umpires, ballkids or your opponent. Roddick blatantly swore at the umpire post-match. His behavior as usual is not acceptable.

says a Murray fan and your boy's a pusher-maybe he can finally win a slam if he joins the wta.


and yes this is tennis, so Roddick should act according to the rules

Criticism is criticism, no matter the use of language. The umpire deserved it, end of story.

Does this mean the umpire should unleash f bomb tirade at Roddick when Roddick makes a mistake with a hawkeye challenge?

Roddick dropping f-bombs and throwing toys out of the pram on court.

This is a brand new development.

Yeah, no. Also, the umpire made the right call.

This is not really unusual behavior for Roddick. Quick to anger, but fair, check out his press conference.

Re: Roddick's post-match outburst against the umpire?

Roddick has already stated in his press conference that he had talked with the umpire outside of the court after the match and they pretty much settled their dispute.

Again, Andy's heated in a match but off the match, he's a good guy. So please don't make it a big deal, as he himself wants to move on as well.

Re: Roddick's post-match outburst against the umpire?

Roddick is man enough to admit when he is in the wrong and that he wasn't 100% right out there on the court with his actions and thoughts like he did in his post match press conference. Serena could learn a thing or two.
