Thumbs down Shame on the French crowd today: May 30th

the Fan's for their booing of Roddick today when he retired his match today.

his injury was documented and he tried to compete, he played 2 sets and only decided to retire after consulting the trainer to be told that his ankle could not be re-taped until the end of a set.

making a smart decision is not poor sportsmanship & its not easy, no one wants to loose in the first round (again) but the fans display today was more than poor

"DISGUSTING. SHAMEFUL. PIGS."

Really...i mean why is this necessary?

Re: Shame on the French.

Boooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo

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: Shame on the French.

Yup it should not have happened but crowds everywhere want to see a match get completed. As GWH pointed out, Rafter was booed in NY for retiring so it is just not the french.

Also, I wonder how the ESPN commentators viewed the situation considering that they criticized JHH for retiring at the AO when Amelie was just a few games away from victory.

Need ideas for a new signature...

Re: Shame on the French.

I honestly think that Roddick deserves it, he's an ass, and plus it's not like he gives shit about what the French have to say about him. He's too cocky to care, so why should you?

Well I didn't see the match, and if he actually got booed, that's not fair for sure, but it must have been by only a few people, and you don't even know if they were French...So shame on yourself for starting threads like this

Sorry for Andy btw

Re: Shame on the French.

Of course people care when 15000 people boo them.
I think in this case he didn't deserve it.

The slight difference is that it was in final, that changes everything. Nothing really in common between Roddick's and Justine's attitude.

Objectively, both were in the same losing position. What I am saying is that they were quick to jump on JHH without even giving her the benefit of doubt.

Re: Shame on the French.

The RG crowd is well known for their bad attitude. Just now they booed again when Safin smashed his racquet. The german commentator said that they boo for small reasons like players calling down the umpire to check a ball. Everybody knows that.

Also I think people treat not feeling well differently than an injury where you could do more damage if you continued playing. I'm not sure what exactly was wrong with JHH but at the time I believe most people thought it was just stomach flu or something and felt she could've toughed it out so Mauresmo could have a proper win and celebration.

Re: Shame on the French.

The French are just bad and sore losers, who only like to win by default, it is a sad day when you are booed because you are sick or unwell - whether you like somebody or not, we are a bunch of sick people here on this board and a sad day for humanity.
