i was surprised malisse didnt freak out after his last shoot (it looked liked a winner) was out. even the linesman showed its good at first, just later changed his mind and shouted out. this isnt the same guy who was defaulted against ferrer in miami
But he was discussing endlessly with the umpire on some other stuff.
I've read somewhere that he has very good eyes and is often right when he challenges calls and other stuff, and I understand that is can be very irritating when linesmen and umpires make mistakes. But by now he should know that it is all part of tennis and that in matches where 3 winning sets are needed, it's levelled out between the two players in the course of a match.
Malisse has to learn that if he is a tennisplayer, he has to let his racket do the talking. If he wants to be a linesman or and umpire, he should put away his racket and do that job. I'm sure he prefers to be a tennisplayer.
At the end of the day, they did not make him lose, he made himself lose.
