Re: Rafa having a hissy fit?:eek:

Probably pissed that he let the match get away from him?

Re: Rafa having a hissy fit?:eek:

The thread title made it seem like he punched a ball boy in the face.

He was just pissed at how the match was going. No biggie.

Re: Rafa having a hissy fit?:eek:

He's just frustrated. He hasn't won a title or beat a solid top player in ages, and he felt he was playing pretty good. In this match Roddick all of the sudden just jumped on him, he was caught off guard, and it's not the first time he's feeling he has let a match slip away recently.

Maybe there's something trivial as well to it. Toothache, hairloss etc... What do we know?

Re: Rafa having a hissy fit?:eek:

For everyone out there who's wondering.

Rafa was getting serious pissed that:
- He got broken
- Andy's hitting forehands that he couldn't touch, which was a serious 360 compared to the opening set
- He can't stop thinking about what was happening and it affected his game
- Andy isn't helping by purposely tanking Rafa's remaining service games, knowing that Andy could easily hold, and it pissed Rafa off to the point that he tried /too/ hard and winded up making un-Rafa like mistakes.

He started smacking his legs because he realized his body wasn't reacting the way he wanted it to; which is understandable. He's not angry at Roddick, don't get me wrong. Andy made the right decision and he knew he got caught, so it's more that Rafa wasn't able to adapt like Roddick did, and he couldn't stand it.

Thanks for the insight. Where did you meet him?

US Open two years ago~ I find his broken english endearing, lol.

And I think if there was anything deeper I wouldn't know. To me, that's just face value. People are saying he's injured, but aside from this game, he was pretty much doing okay for the hard courts.

And oh, wasn't he already swiping his racket at the floor and himself at the 3rd set, too?
