LOL amazing. Who is that?

Rochus winning, plus Bogomolov losing = tennis wins twice.

The same goes for me, but I actually like him

He does have character, he argued with the umpire for a whole set when he got a retarded warning. His character used to be a negative aspect when he was an annoying brat, but he has changed in the last couple of years.

yeh, even edging a slam seeding. Trying to think of comparably weak seeded players in recent years... Starace? Vliegen? GOATcia Grass Lord? At least he beat Nadal and reached a MS QF I guess Petz was seeded once I believe, but not complaining there, that's just awesome

Oh yeah the ball hitting the umpire's mic!

I usually like a player that makes some trouble on court, but with him, no.

Sometimes one big win makes a huge difference and it happens on many different levels. In Bogomolov's case it was miracle of last year's 2nd round in Miami as a disinterested Murray gave him a 6-1, 7-5 win. Probably it pumped up Bogomolov tremendously and out of a sudden from a Challenger journeyman he became a seeded player in a major. But his fairytale is near the end I think.

He's sometimes pretty entertaining with his attitude, though.

In his match with Bellucci at last year's Paris Paster's he asked the umpire if he could retire with having an injury. Seriously, who the fuck does that. Other players would fake an injury and retire or would ask the question more privately. This certainly mind fucked Bellucci, who's already a mental midget and Bogo really didn't have to be very impressive. He didn't tank it and actually played quite hard in the second set tiebreak, and won the match in 3.

Supporting the unusual strokes gang: Dolgopolov, Mayer, Mannarino, Tomic

Hmmm, I got the impression he hit that mike by accident in Rotterdam. May have been mistaken though, I sat behind the ump so couldn't really see it well.
He got a violation code for that, didn't he?
