Kiefer's abhorrent behaviour

http://www.eurosport.com/tennis/rola...to896102.shtml

KIEFER TALKS DIRTIER

Whilst Sharapova was fairly restrained in her choice of colourful language, Nicolas Kiefer let himself go completely on court, and will be lucky to get away with just the one warning he received during his epic five-setter against Marc Gicquel.

The German took an instant dislike to one of the line judges on Court number two, ultimately launching a spectacular verbal volley - containing at least two words that are entirely unsuitable for this column - at the official.

And then, just as the crowd did not think it could get any worse, the controversial thirteenth seed spat in the judge's direction to show displeasure at one particular decision. His action won him a warning, but it was his final misdemeanour - aiming a shot at an innocent ball-girl - which most shocked onlookers.

Amazingly, there was no apology forthcoming from Kiefer after the match, indeed his only explanation on being questioned over the incidents being, "Did I do that? That's me."

Only time will tell if he will be punished retrospectively, but here's hoping he will be.

There was no news of the ball-girl's wellbeing.

Re: Kiefer's abhorrent behaviour

Nice.

Just wondering... do tournament volunteers have to sign some kind of form, regarding 'any injury that may be sustained over the duration of the tournament...' blah blah... not responsible... blah blah..?

Could be a wrong interpretation. Most players are spitting on court, you can always say it was in this or that direction.

It's ridiculous how the author (is it KB#1?) writes "innocent" ball-girl to make Kiefer look like a criminal. Then he writes "no news on the wellbeing" - how ridiculous is that? Is her life in danger or what?

The facts are that you couldn't see that on TV and that Kiefer only has to pay 1.500 $ for shouting at the linesman.

Re: Kiefer's abhorrent behaviour

The article makes Kiefer look more evil than Darth Vader

On the other hand, this isn't even news, we know how Kiefer can be

NALBANDIAN / SAFIN / FERRERO / MOYA / LUCZAK / DEL POTRO




Berdych - Andreev - Acasuso - Mathieu - Tursunov - Gaudio - Simon



Vliegen * Malisse * Chela * Zabaleta * Gasquet * Calleri * Djokovic * Starace


Retired and not so active players¬

SJENG SCHALKEN [] PAT RAFTER [] THOMAS MUSTER [] GUGA KUERTEN

Right.I have seen many times esp on clay! The only difference is he is the player that many people dislike,when he did one thing "wrong", (I don't think spitting is too wrong,just don't like it! ) it lets people specially emphasize it.

Well there was that deal with kiddie Edberg and the old linesman...my favorite Tennis shocker story.
