France v. US Altercation!!!!! Anybody hear about this one?

or did i miss the boat already. Not to start a swarm of gossip or rumours, but it was in a freaking french tennis magazine. It said that after Nicolas Mahut and Julien Benneteau beat the Bryan Bros at the US Open, that they met up at a restaurant or something, and that there was an altercation. But that now it was water under the bridge. Anybody know about this? who do you root for anyway?

Re: France v. US Altercation!!!!! Anybody hear about this one?

You at it again Frog? I mean some of the American players must have a problem with Benneteau. I know there was definite heat between Fish and Julien. When Fish said to him " you are one of the worst players on tour, and I will never lose to you again" at the after match handshake.

As for the second part of the answer I wouldn't be going for the Bryan brothers.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

At it again? anyway, i had no idea there was friction. Fish is probably my favourite male player so i suppose if Fish doesnt like Benneteau, i suppose i side with Fish.

does anyone know about the altercation though?

Yeah, Fish is one great guy saying something like that to someone at the after match handshake, especially after losing to them.

As for the altercation I can find out eventually.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

Fish is funny. he seems cool, like a surfer dude with a tennis raquet. he makes hi tech sounds when he plays, so hes gotta be cool. Benneteau seems very nice though. he was hanging with the kids at RG last year with Julien, and he seemed very friendly

I hadn't heard about this, but if only because I like Mahut and the Bryan brothers chest bumping creeps me out, I hope the Frenchies kicked some ass

I lack direction.

Chocking makes me sad.

btw, FB, I like Fish too, but that has to be one of the most shitheaded things that anybody has ever said after a match.

I lack direction.

Re: France v. US Altercation!!!!! Anybody hear about this one?

I dont even know fish, i dont have cable. ive seen him at RG and recently at Bercy, otherwise its his hair and his California style that i appreciate. i dont like rude comments like that. i read in french tennis magazine "court Central" that Mahut and Benneteau said there was an altercation. not trying to stir up trouble, but if its in a magazine than at least 10,000 or more or whoever reads it, knows about it. anyone know what happened?

I thought he was from Minnesota originally.
