Nalbandian with bad behaviour / nearly disqualified

After the re-break in the 2nd set, Nalbandian (with already one warning) smashed the racket a couple of times and got another warning. Then he showed bad behaviour (obviously for minutes) and didn't want to continue the match. Schüttler got 2 games for free to go 6-3 4-3 up. Then Nalbandian gave the match away with unmotivated errors.

At least that's what the Halle website says.

David I dunno what might be that, but I believe he's not over some personal issues..... He'll be ok.....

At least that explains part of the reason why Nalbo lost 6 games in a row in the second set having been 3-0 up.

Re: Nalbandian with bad behaviour?

Well, considering what is written on the homepage and what Rainer said in his press conference I think that must have been an historic bad outburst from Nalbandian if even Rainer is so shocked by what happened. Very very bad of Nalbandian acting like this Sure you can get a warning for smashing a racket, nobody cares, maybe sometimes even a point penalty, but if you're still acting like that and this report sounds as if he was going completely nuts and crazy like a wild animal, then it's really very strange if you also get game penalties and when you are at brink of disqualification from the match. He also said that he delayed the game for several minutes.

Good for Nalbandian that the other matches scheduled on the Centre Court took too long so that his and Rainer's match have been moved to an outside court with no TV coverage Or else lots of more people would have witnessed that

Best of luck to all Germans : Nicolas Kiefer | Rainer Schüttler | Lars | Florian | Tommy

Damn, would have liked to have seen that outburst

My German guys are like the cast of the Wizard of Oz:

Rainer = Lion
Kiwi = Scarecrow
Tommy = Tin Man
Flo = Dorothy

...but I still love 'em

Re: Nalbandian with bad behaviour / nearly disqualified

So that's the reason it was such an easy win for Rainer...
I was suprised he didn't even needed three sets... But this explains a lot!

Good luck to ...

Re: Nalbandian with bad behaviour / nearly disqualified

This is the only one of David's matches in Europe I have missed all year (typical bad timing), so I can't give a first hand report,- but from what I hear David did behave badly and deserved the two game penalties and whatever fine will surely follow. He might be my favourite player, but I don't condone such behaviour in others and I can't condone it in him either. Denaon is right in that he does have some personal issues to deal with right now that are causing him stress - but that's no excuse. I am sorry that Rainer was caught up in this fiasco - kudoes to him for keeping his head and winning the match - and I'm sorry for the German fans that had to witness such a spectacle.

Re: Nalbandian with bad behaviour / nearly disqualified

Wow, I just read Rainer's press conference. Unbelievable that Nalbandian stopped playing for about 10 minutes! The umpire really should have disqualified him.

Why don't they have a camera on that court?

Just imagine what the RG fans would have done with him.

Re: Nalbandian with bad behaviour / nearly disqualified

David!!!
Now I can finally understand why he lost 6 games in less than 15 minutes.
I hate seeing him like this, I hope he can put his head in place for once and stop acting like this. It's unacceptable. One can understand he's having a very bad personal moment, but if this is affecting him sooooo much, he should stop for a while, and once he's ready come back. This is not good for tennis, for his fans, his rivals and more importantly for himself...

Re: Nalbandian with bad behaviour / nearly disqualified

I guess it just exploded inside of him and several factors accumulated to this that he was so frustrated with the play, with himself, with anything else: bad play, being moved to an outside court on rather short notice, against a home crowd favourite, wrong decisions, personal problems, not much success in the past (but he still won Munich not too long ago! but relatively bad results in the rest of the tournament since AO), a bad day, not in the mood for playing tennis?! we can only guess as we can't look into his mind what was going on

Anything could have caused this, however there's no excuse.

Re: Nalbandian with bad behaviour / nearly disqualified

I have certainly lost a lot of respect for Nalbandian today.
