Fish/Dimitrov Incident

Just wondering if anyone can link me to some footage of the Fish/Dimitrov altercation at last nights Hopman Cup match?

I saw some of it briefly on the news but would like to see it again.

Maybe some of the Bulgarians have some footage on their news sites???

From what i saw i don't think Dimitrov did too much wrong...got a lucky net cord and Fish snapped from that point onwards.....compounded by the fact Dimitrov was thrashing him....And the mixed doubles Fish deliberately tried to hit him, followed up by a verbal altercation whilst walking past....

Fish, who also lost in straight sets to Czech Tomas Berdych on Wednesday, directed angry words at Dimitrov while the pair were shaking hands after the singles at Burswood Dome.

During the doubles, Fish appeared to hit a ball straight at the Bulgarian and then approached him as he sat in a chair during a change of ends.

Dimitrov jumped to his feet and the two men argued fiercely before the match referee rushed on to the court and stood between them. It was nearly a minute before order was restored.

Re: Fish/Dimitrov Incident

I can't say I'm that surprised. Mardy is a pretty sore loser.

Re: Fish/Dimitrov Incident

I liked Mardy, but how the time go i must say not so much lately. It looks like he can´t handle that he was humiliated by some young player, who is way more talented and will achieve more in his career.

Tennis-Dented pride caused Fish tantrum, says Cash

Mardy Fish blew his top in a bad-tempered Hopman Cup encounter between the United States and Bulgaria because he was embarrassed about being thrashed by his young opponent Grigor Dimitrov, Pat Cash said on Saturday.

Fish received a code of conduct warning for spitting in the direction of noisy Bulgarian fans during his 6-2 6-1 thrashing by 20-year-old Dimitrov on Friday and the pair had to be kept apart in the mixed doubles of the tie.

Tournament referee Soren Friemel confirmed he would compile a written report for the directors of the event and former Wimbledon champion Cash said he believed Fish was suffering from dented pride and unable to control his disappointment.

"You don't often see that, a bit of face-to-face on a tennis court," said Cash, who is working as a television commentator at the Burswood Dome.

"Mardy clearly was not in great form this week. He played pretty poorly and absolutely got annihilated by the youngster.

"Reading between the lines, and I don't know what happened, but it looked like Grigor was just saying to Mardy: 'What have I done wrong? I haven't done anything. I'm just trying to have a bit of fun here and you're attacking me, for what?'

"I don't think there's too much wrong with it. Boys just have to get on with it. They're fierce the competitors, that's the bottom line."

The Hopman Cup is an ITF event but no report will be sent to the governing body. Friemel said he did not expect the board of directors of the Hopman Cup to sanction Fish.

"I think it's better if you ask him (Fish)," Dimitrov said. "I'm sorry if I did something wrong. I'm going to apologise to him in the lockers when I see him, but I don't want to say much else about it."

Dimitrov boarded a flight to Sydney straight after his final Hopman Cup match. He played his first qualifying singles at the Sydney International just three hours after arriving from Perth and won.

Re: Fish/Dimitrov Incident

It's funny Fish would blow up at Grigor of all people. Who could get mad at him?
