.. and mercifully you are not smart enough to ever be either.

If I throw a bottle at a wall in frustration and someone inadvertently walks in front of it and is injured, I can't then claim it was their responsibility to look out for flying objects. In any situation, the law takes into account perceived risks. Had the linesman been injured by a ball in play, that would have been a perceived risk. If I walked onto a rugby field and was injured, that would have been a perceived risk. It is not contingent on a linesman or ballgirl or spectator to get out of the way of a tennis player acting violently. Your defense is a joke.

Unlike Mr. Eleganza, it appears you have failed to read and understand different subtleties of my commentary, even after I clearly acknowledged Mr. Eleganza's suspicion.

David Nalbandian fined for throwing water at Australian Open staff

"What kind of shape am I in now? Well round is a shape." said Roddick with a laugh. "I had a very detailed retirement plan, and I feel like I've met every aspect of it: a lot of golf, a lot of carbs, a lot of fried food, and some booze, occasionally — I've been completely committed ... The results have shown."

But that water incident was clearly another accident. It was not his intention to get that person wet. All he was doing was throwing water in their direction and they should have ducked for cover. It is always up to the would be victim to be on the alert at all times and take the necessary evasive actions when needed... Please stop digging up all these accidents. Nalby's never intended to cause trouble. He is a gentle soul.

Re: Is David Nalbandian a hero or a mug?

not sure if he's a hero, and I don't really care to be honest

The only reason he called out the ATP is because he didn't want to apologize and he wanted to make it seem as if he kicked the board simply to make a point.

Re: Is David Nalbandian a hero or a mug?

Nalby's game is classy ...too bad he isn't. Anyone who is accussed of assult three time in less than three years should seek help. Hope he will get it before it's too late.

He's a clown who will be remembered for the recent kicking incident and not for whatever passes for his "career". Overrated mug, to be honest.

I'm not sure how anyone can call an assault, "the slightest mistake" and it's not even as though this is the first time he has behaved badly either. I doubt the police will end up charging him but hopefully the threat of it happening will force him to finally grow up. He's been behaving like a spoiled brat for too long.

Re: Is David Nalbandian a hero or a mug?

"assault" "thug"

some of you have led very sheltered lives.

11 years on tour and the best examples of nalbandian being a Bad Person people can come up with are throwing some water, kicking a box and calling Henman a phony. lock up this menace now.

Re: Is David Nalbandian a hero or a mug?

Some people seriously consider a hero a man who hit a good worker just because he is a talentless child.
