Hilarious video from the Geneva Challenger qualifiers

http://www.passion3ds.com/Gag1.wmv

That is David Benabou of France playing against Maxime Bonami. I swear, 95% of the people here would be able to beat him.

By the way, this is my first post. So, hi and all that.

Re: Hilarious video from the Geneva Challenger qualifiers

this is hilarious !
Welcome to MTF StrangeAttractor

By the way, I had to check the final score of this Benabou guy (just to make sure) and no he didn't win a game, Maxime Bonami's honor is safe.

Re: Hilarious video from the Geneva Challenger qualifiers

that serve is one of the funniest things I've ever seen. To be fair, his backhand slice looked ok on the odd occasion.

I wonder who'd win if Benabou played Alex Bogdanovic. Could be a tight match

Re: Hilarious video from the Geneva Challenger qualifiers

In the french rating system, Benabou is only 30/2 (ITN 8, USTA 2.5) , while the other guy is -4/6 (ITN 2, USTA 6.0) which is normal for entering challeger qualifying.

Re: Hilarious video from the Geneva Challenger qualifiers

Hilarious to some extent, but also pretty sad. This guy took it serious! What a waste of time, and tournament money.. I wish I had played, I'd have a good chance compared to that prick

Re: Hilarious video from the Geneva Challenger qualifiers

This guy is brilliant and with some work could be a future star and as for the serve he has nothing on Karsten Braasch in that regard.

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".

Re: Hilarious video from the Geneva Challenger qualifiers

Damn right about Karsten... I cannot believe the wrist flick! There are better club players than this joke.

You just want to go to Pepe's Bodega that's the only reason you want to play in Båstad.

Seriously, I am going to coach him and make him a star, he can beat opponents, by making them laugh at his game.

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".

Re: Hilarious video from the Geneva Challenger qualifiers

They both look awful, but the guy who serves like a woodpecker (god he is a disgrace!) He moves like a robot too

I went to a grade 4 sussex event for u14's and there were much better players than this guy.
