Pat Cash and Thomas Muster, the Love Affair Continues, punch on guys

http://www.tennisnews.com/exclusive.php?pID=8475

Tempers Flare in Essen as Cash Beats Muster
TEMPERS FLARE IN ESSEN AS CASH BEATS MUSTER


After a year of toil on the Delta Tour of Champions, the Road to London comes to an end at the Deichmann Champions Trophy in Essen, Germany this week, and temperatures are running high.

Pat Cash beat Thomas Muster 6-0, 6-1 in the tournament’s opening match, and there were times when a boxing ring might have been a more suitable arena in which to settle their differences.

The aggravation began towards the end of the second set with Cash playing irresistible tennis to lead 5-0.

Muster finally set up an easy winner, drilling the ball down the centre of the court and catching Cash in the chest. Cash, convinced that the Austrian had deliberately tried to hit him with the ball, decided to have it out with Muster. The pair indulged in an angry exchange, which ended with Cash pushing Muster in the chest and suggesting that they retreat to the locker room to sort it out. Muster insisted that he had not been trying to hit his opponent, and eventually they returned to complete the match.

Cash’s dominance continued in the second set, and a disgruntled Muster refused to shake hands afterwards.

Pat Cash versus Thomas Muster: Muster hits Cash with a ball; Cash, believing this was on purpose, pushes him back and suggests they resolve the dispute like men in the locker-room. These are the “grown-ups” of the seniors’ tour.

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".

Great stuff. You often have heated exhanges on tour but rarely do you see actual contact via shoving.

These guys have been hating each other for ages, it's great.

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".

I think that's what is missing from the tour these days: pure unadulterated hate! Hewitt and Coria gave us a taste but we need more of that hate.

Re: Pat Cash and Thomas Muster, the Love Affair Continues, punch on guys

I saw the Hewitt vs Coria match live, nearly everyone was loving the heat there from these two.

The Muster and Cash one goes back a long way, basically Cash called him a drug cheat ( not proven), a prick and on court in their playing days they were always at each other. Then again Muster's gamesmanship could have that effect on people and Cash didn't appreciate getting humiliated at Davis Cup in Vienna.

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".

Muster did grate on a lot of people's nerves. Cash just seems to have a short fuse though. He wants to settle everything "back at the lockeroom" or whatever. Kind of funny.

Re: Pat Cash and Thomas Muster, the Love Affair Continues, punch on guys

The two perfect personalities to light up the fireworks with. They both got on other player's nerves big time for different reasons. Agree with NYCtennisfan, we need more of that and to this day I am still disappointed at not having been able to watch that Hewitt-Coria DC match.

Instead we get the world's #1 and #2 players sucking each other's dicks, SMSing congratulatory messages and dropping by each other's hotel room for a friendly chat

(note: before I get impaled for being a hater that last sentence was said in jest)

They should happy that they don't live in the 18th Century. Disagreements among gentlemen were resolved by duels where the winner would end up killing the loser!

Life is empty and meaningless. It is in emptiness that we create possibilities for extraordinary results
