You are an abortion!

Who said it and when?

I ask, because the Mickey Mouse stuff that brings WWIII on this board is nothing compared to what players of the past said and did.

Jimmy Connors during the 91 US Open, right?

Yep, Connors to the chair umpire. Bonus points for what he said about kissing (also to the chair umpire) and who the chair umpire was.



C'mon, Lleyton!

David Littlefied. (I had to look this up.)

This is from SI:

Quote:
Among the things Connors said to Littlefield were: "Kiss me before you do that to me. ... You son of a bitch. ... Get out of the chair. ... You're a bum. ... Get your ass out of the chair. ... Don't give me that crap. ... You're an abortion." But Connors was neither warned nor penalized.

"Jimmy was about as gross as he could get," said CBS analyst Mary Carillo. "But I've heard him say it before. It's very tough to hear and very tough to take."

Said one former player, "Connors has always been an -------. It's just that now he's everybody's favorite -------."

The next day, when Michael Mewshaw, who wrote the definitive book on the men's circuit, Short Circuit, asked tournament referee Tom Barnes whether Connors would be fined for what he had said to Littlefield, Barnes replied, "Get out of my office."

"Excuse me? Are you the guy who decides on fines?" said Mewshaw.

"I'm the guy," said Barnes. "Now get out of my office, or I'll call security."

Later Barnes said, "It is our policy that the officials have to report any code violation after the match. They did not, so it is a nonissue."

Well, O.K. If you're a music store manager, do you send back the offensive CDs and tapes by the rap group N.W.A., or do you invite the louts to make a personal appearance so you can draw a panting mob?

Re: You are an abortion!

Expect the Fed-haters to be nostalgic about Jimmy now and conveniently forget about Agassi's indiscretions.

Need ideas for a new signature...

Re: You are an abortion!




I am a fan of Federer, Gasquet, Baghdatis, the long-deceased Safin, Youzhny, Nalbandian, Rochus, Tsonga, the sadly-departed Santoro, and good, hearty, competitive tennis matches. The quality of my life does not rest solely on who wins these matches. In fact, I would even go as far as to say that I can live quite happily after a player I like chokes, mugs, bashes, or otherwise succumbs to a loss.

Re: You are an abortion!

Littlefield retired very soon after that match.



C'mon, Lleyton!

Re: You are an abortion!

TennisFool, I think you'd get more of a response to this thread if you titled it "Roger Federer eats dead babies (the live ones scream too loud)".

Emotions of a Safin fan


I smell bagels!!! Lots of them!!!

Re: You are an abortion!

That's nothing compared to "Too Big". Pales in comparison with "He's a joke when it comes to injury". And oh, "Look at HIM and look at HIM and you tell me what the similarity is" (I'm forgetting the exact wording from Lleyton) -- what about that? Big Jim had nothing on the trash talkers of today.
