WTF is up with Malisse?

The livescore board went from him leading 6-5 5-5 to him losing the match on a "default". Note that when Roddick retired due to injury it said "retired", not "default", so it clearly wasn't an injury. Unless the site screwed up.

Now the resutls page is calling it a "walkover".

So what on earth did he have to do to get defaulted?!

I lack direction.

Chocking makes me sad.

Re: WTF is up with Malisse?

Got so mad and threw your racket to your seat, unfortunately, you had a terrible aim, missed and almost hit the umpire, sailed to the stand and hit a fan.

That's what happened to Guga in 1998 RG

Re: WTF is up with Malisse?

He must've got the point penalty, then the game penalty, then forfeited the match? Which is absolutely ridiculous if he was up a set. I'm intrigued. I thought Xavier had improved mentally slightly

Re: WTF is up with Malisse?

WTF?!

I can't believe this! He was in such a good position to win this match in two, then he just throws it all away!? When is he finally going to mature...

Does anyone know why he got the point and game penalty anyway?

Re: WTF is up with Malisse?

Okay really weird; apparantly he didn't agree with a line judge, was arguing with that person, then played on. He made footfaults (deliberately ) , got one penalty point, so he was furious and offended the line judge, it's not clear what he said, but he got a second penalty point and was defaulted...

Re: WTF is up with Malisse?

Sounds like over reaction by the umpire

I agree that X still needs to mature but he's thrown worse temper tantrums and not been defaulted. This is messed up!!!!

Re: WTF is up with Malisse?

I'm glad and really mad at the same time. I thought he was injured He is, but only mentally! Get it together Xavier!!! DAMN IT! For once in your career, you're playing good, with no injuries! Take advantage of it!!! GOD!!! You shouldn't freak out like that for stupidities!

Re: WTF is up with Malisse?

He cursed at a line judge or the umpire, that's not acceptable. It's too immature, he should take it as a lesson.

I guess that X just can't handle things when they are going his way without complications

Re: WTF is up with Malisse?

jeez temper tantrum or what....

How many times must we of shot nerves witness the undoubted pain & suffering of muppets everywhere before we stand up against the cavemen??

One muppet, who wishes to remain anonymous, has this to say: "You know, I uhhhh cannot stay all the time at the you know, base of the line. Too much uhhhh pression."

It is your turn to help - The "Save A Muppet Foundation" needs you!
