Crowd Behavior in Chile

It was so annoying to watch the Chilean public disturbing Gaudio while serving, cherring on his missing serves and provoking him all the time. This is not the first time that something like this happens in Chile. If they continue to behave like this, many players will prefer not to play there (esp. the good ones like Gaudio). Zabaleta was also very upset with Gonzalez´s behaviour and he openly criticizes him for not playing in Buenos Aires.

Re: Crowd Behavior in Chile

I saw one guy get escorted out of the place by the police and some tournament officials for creating and provoking a rucus. He held play up for like 30 seconds by walking slowly to his seat.

Re: Crowd Behavior in Chile

It´s always the same in Chile and Brasil.
They hate the argentinians and they do whatever they can to disturb the players.
Gaudio played very smart against Gonzalez and won.
Congrats Gato!!!!!!

Re: Crowd Behavior in Chile

I think it's a question of education. The American public tend to do the same in the US Open (of course, not as gross as the Chileans). But I've never seen the English public disturbing a Henman's opponent.

"The American public tend to do the same in the US Open"

What riot in the stands? I must have missed that tournament.

If you mean cheer for your own players, then that's every country. The US is simply the only country with players that make it to the final and win the slam in their own country often.

Re: Crowd Behavior in Chile

Annoying Roodick, Agassi and Serena's opponents. Sometimes, American public tend to support their players too much. But it's just an impression.

Re: Crowd Behavior in Chile

As compared to what happens to Henman's opponents at Wimbledon?

I'm just lost as to what is the problem with people from the US/Argentina/UK rooting for their own countrymen, it's actually the opposite that should provoke raised eyebrows.

Re: Crowd Behavior in Chile

Look at the players coming to play in Acapulco. There must be a reason why so many amazing players are coming there... Besides being a beautiful place the audience in Acapulco really are treating the players nicely and respectfully. I know the players love this tournament and it is not difficult to see why.

Re: Crowd Behavior in Chile

I think there is a big difference between rooting for countrymen and annoying the countrymen's opponents. You don't need to cheer on a double fault or a missing first serve or a groos error. I think it's the same difference between celebrating a good point (as most players do) and celebrating an opponent gross mistake with a c'mon.

Re: Crowd Behavior in Chile

To play in Chile is like to play the Davis Cup

I remember the last year in Bs As the final between Coria and Moya ... And all the crowd was celebrating when Moya was losing a point

Thats because the english crowds are very boring fans who do not make any noise, they barely even applaud and cheer.

Re: Crowd Behavior in Chile

The Argentine Public sucks in the Davis Cup. But in the last two Coria-Moya matches, and in the Acasusso-Kuerten match at the ATP, I don't remember the public celebrating Kuerten or Moya double faults and this kind of behavor. In fact, I do remember Guga Kuerten saying after the match "I thought I was playing in Brasill for all the support of the public". And Moya comes back every year, despite the fact that the ATP Buenos Aires is a shitty tournament for players like him. I guess this is because he has always been well treated. I wonder weather a top ten like Gaudio will ever come back to Chile.

English fans boring? Did you ever watch a soccer match in England? They have the best soccer fans in Europe... But when it comes to tennis, I admire how they behave in Wimbledom.
