Re: IW R3 Ebden def. Fish 6-3 6-4

All jokes aside, while I agree that Fish isn't really top 10 material, he's definitely good enough to be a steady #11-20. Just don't know what's eating him lately. Since the Hopman Cup thing with Dimitrov, he's been a royal douche (well, many instances before that, too; but almost consistently since then). Wonder what's making him so pissy.

A bit off-topic from original post, and probably doesn't belong in MTF, but...yes

If 3 or 4 top non-screaming players would all have the guts to stop play once the screams are belted out, and complain that they were being hindered, you should soon see the screamers being told to shut up. Players seem too intimidated to challenge the screaming hyenas. A player can say that the scream was too loud during the point and it distracted them (made them take their eye of the ball, couldn't hear the ball coming off the racquet, whatever).

That said, the umpires and their officiating bosses would have to have the guts to back them up, and not just cater to the top screaming players because they bring fans to the stands and viewers to the television screens.

Don't be fooled. The screamers can still play well without screaming. They were taught to do it to gain a mental advantage. If I were an opponent, and the umpire did not back me up on a hinderance complaint, I would belt the ball straight at the screamer's mouth as soon as I got the chance and tell them to save their screaming for the bedroom; it has no place on the tennis court.

Fish is finished as a top 10 player, hope he enjoyed the ride.

I am the Nelson Mandela of MTF

Federer, Nadal and Djokovic pander to plutocrats and charge huge appearance fees. The "trickle down effect" means that tournaments like the Heineken Open now have to pay appearance money for racketeers that many of us have never heard of. It's close to extortion.
At the end of Federer's first round match at the Australian Open a fawning interviewer asked about his kids and if he had bought coach Stefan Edberg a birthday present - no, by the way, the privilege of knocking up with 'King Roger' was enough of a present apparently.
