Nadal's sportsmanship in the Rosol match

Many here have mentioned Nadal's violations of the time and coaching rules, but today was something else. What do you think of Nadal's behavior this match? Hopefully someone finds the video of the bumping on the changeover.

Re: Nadal's sportsmanship in the Rosol match

His career spanning violations of the rules regarding time taken between points and the illegal coaching are the real issue.

More bad sportsmanship from Nadal.

How can Nadal ever have been given the Stefan Edberg award for fair play? He is the dirtiest player in the game, and tried it again against Rosol. It was disgraceful him bumping into Rosol on purpose. Rosol was not doing anything wrong and yet Nadal tried his upsetting tactics again.

Goodbye to bad rubbish.

Not as bad as Shitray cursing every time he loses a point.

Nadal in ultimate diva form. I was vacuuming during his rant to the chair umpire. It was seriously about Lukas's breathing?

Re: Nadal's sportsmanship in the Rosol match

Nadal has always been a cheating, poor sport. Tonight only added further evidence as if it was needed.

Re: Nadal's sportsmanship in the Rosol match

Nadal didnt cheat in my opinion.

Congrats to Roger Federer on his 17th record breaking GS title and becoming the best player that ever played on grass and breaking number 1 record.You deserve it Roger

Re: Nadal's sportsmanship in the Rosol match

He is taking advantage of seat judges not enforcing rules that for a reason are in place. What is laughable is that sometimes when he is facing a strong player (obviously not a chance today for that to happen) they give him a warning for taking too much time between points, but they never give him a second (more than that would be dreaming) warning even though he doesn't make any effort to correct his misbehavior since he knows the seat judge would never have the balls to give more than that. Nadal can win even 20 slams before he ends his career and retire as the toughest grinder to ever have played tennis, but I just can't see past this crap. I guess we have to wait for the new generation of players to enter in top 100 and start to employ constantly this tactic, before the ATP will do something about it, because Nadal and Djokovic will always be protected.

Re: Nadal's sportsmanship in the Rosol match

Nadal has plenty of problems that we all already know about. Thread isn't necessary.

Federer / Haas / Safin / Gaudio / Kuerten / Youzhny / Nadal / Gonzalez / Ljubicic / Hewitt / Soderling / Wawrinka / Coria / Nalbandian / Kohlschreiber

The less I think about this match, the better. I have enough things in my life that are depressing me.
