Article : Dani Koellerer in a racism controversy

The article is in Portuguese. A proper translation would be appreciated.

Koellerer will do anything on a tennis court to fuck with the heads of opponents, but Julio Silva isn't taking it.

Júlio Silva vai à delegacia e presta queixa após ofensas racistas de Koellerer
Durante partida válida por Challenger italiano, brasileiro teria sido ofendido pelo sempre polêmico austríaco

23/Junho/2010


Julinho (foto da esquerda) acusa o austríaco de racismo

Um fato no mínimo lamentável aconteceu ontem durante o Challenger de Reggio Emilia, na Itália. Conhecido por se envolver em polêmicas, o austríaco Daniel Koellerer desta vez parece ter extrapolado e está sendo acusado pelo brasileiro Jílio Silva de ter proferido ofensas racistas durante o confronto entre os dois pela primeira rodada do torneio.



A partida foi vencida com certa tranquilidade por Koellerer, atual número 111 do mundo e cabeça-de-chave três no torneio italiano, que aplicou 6/2 e 6/3 no rival. Porém, o que era para ser mais um confronto "normal" acabou virando caso de polícia. Após uma discussão, o austríaco teria ofendido o brasileiro e proferido ofensas racistas ao atual número 169 do mundo.



Em contato com a redação da Revista TÊNIS, Ricardo Hocevar, brasileiro que também disputa o torneio, contou um pouco sobre a polêmica, mas não pôde dar mais informações já que ainda estava envolvido e ajudando o compatriota com o caso. Segundo Hocevar, Julinho foi à delegacia logo após a partida e prestou uma queixa contra o austríaco.



"O Koellerer xingou ele no meio do jogo ontem, e disse algumas coisas que foram racismo, falou várias besteiras", criticou o tenista, que estava acompanhando a partida do colega e se revoltou com o fato. "O Julio foi à polícia e fez uma denúncia. Ele quer que isso seja divulgado pela imprensa, e vamos fazer um abaixo assinado para ATP tirar esse cara do circuito".



Para esclarecer a situação, a reportagem tentou entrar em contato com Júlio Silva, mas devido aos problemas que está enfrentando o tenista não pôde falar no momento. O contato agora está sendo feito por email e em breve publicaremos a versão do brasileiro sobre o ocorrido.


Vale lembrar que esta não é a primeira e nem será a última confusão em que se envolve o austríaco, que no mês passado chegou a ser "estrangulado" pelo compatriota Stefan Koubek durante uma partida válida pela liga local.

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: Article : Dani Koellerer in a racism controversy

They played in the 1st round and Koellerer allegedly made racist remarks and Silva has made a formal complaint.

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: Article : Dani Koellerer in a racism controversy

another article: http://esporte.uol.com.br/tenis/ulti...-do-tenis.jhtm

Silva claims Köllerer called him "monkey" and also said "go back to the jungle" and later "imitated a monkey, by scratching under his arms". Also "two years ago I played him and had troubles, he made a sign suggesting a banana"

Julio Silva definitely gets fired up in his matches.

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".

Silva went to the police station to press charges.
And the players are trying to ban Koellerere again, according to the articles.

Didn't some other guy get a 6-month ban for a racial slur?
