Re: Daniel Köllerer life-long suspension

I was hoping to see him at Wimbledon, as well; shame.

Re: Daniel Köllerer life-long suspension

Mixed feelings on this. He was a loser but misunderstood. Deep down i feel he's a man with many demons. A nice guy who just wants to please everybody. He's a big kid, who never grew up who loves having fun and taking the piss. He well and truly won me over at the US Open. Really misunderstood

That being said he's a crap tennis player and has never made any impact on the tour whatsoever. Another journeyman will take his place. The sad thing is that he will be forgotten.

Re: Daniel Köllerer life-long suspension

Just the latest attempt to get rid of all personality in the sport. They only want guys that lick each other's balls all day like Federer and Rafa. Koellerer must have trash talked the wrong guy. Maybe he fixed some matches too, but he's way down the list of guys that should be banned for that, as he actually provided entertainment value.

I was watching him pay DelPo from the first row at the USOpen 2 yrs ago. he was NOT amusing/funny. He was frightening actually, as if he could snap and just go berzerk on another player or fan. My friend took a photo (he tried to get as many players as possible that day) during a changeover and Kollerer looked as if he was going to jump in the stands and kick the shit out of him- he had a mean grimace/scowl on his face with his eyebrows turned down and his teeth showing like an animal ! Good riddance !

Say what?

Koellerer had it coming. A complete and utter moron with no respect for anyone. That said, he could be funny sometimes.

Re: Daniel Köllerer life-long suspension

Summary.

It's his own management that announced it, as it's not official as of yet. Found guilty of match fixing and he is not likely to appeal the 100 000 Euro fine due to lack of cash.

If they were truly serious about this, then they wouldn't have gone after a guy who has more form than Federer has GS titles, as they say small fish.

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: Daniel Köllerer gets a life ban from tennis for match fixing

They ban fixers? News to me.

So someone recently informed me that my sig was empty. Said I needed a life affirming motivational quote by a positive role model like Einstein or Oscar Wilde...

Great tip to stay fit and mobile: If you run up and down the stairs two steps at a time at least once daily, there will never come a time when you can't do it. Until of course one day you mistime a step, collapse and break all your bones... That would suck. But you had a good run.

Re: Daniel Köllerer gets a life ban from tennis for match fixing

Let's face it, he was pretty blatant about it. Most of the usual suspects only do it a few times a year. Koellerer at one point did 3 matches in a row, and possibly 4.

You can't get away with that with the media aware of fixing nowadays, and the atp/itf wanting to be seen to do something.

As usual, they only target the lower-ranked players.

On the contrary, Koellerer with his idiotic behaviour pretty much attracted negative attention to tennis. He was the black sheep.

Really.

Please do share the numerous similar examples to this that would support this claim.

Actually they wanted to get him off tour years ago, but didn't have anything on him to do it. Yes, I'm very aware of his antics but he is small fish when it comes to fixing.

If the ATP were serious then they'd have helped get rid of Forstman one of the IMG top brass for betting when he shouldn't be doing that. This is the classic make it look like they're doing something.

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".
