Mansdorf at times displayed a temper. One time, after jumping over the net and pushing an opponent who he thought was cheating, he was suspended for a month

i found it on his wiki site

I don't remember that, but that would be a typical Israeli reaction

I'd rather wait those extra 5 seconds seeing those boobies bounce than watching some fatass kid burn away his bigmac meal.

I don't know, call me old fashioned but I like women

Re: Amos Mansdorf and his temper

I remember reading once that when he played Yannick Noah, he got so annoyed with Noah's family making noise and applauding his errors, that he went over to their box and stood there loudly cursing them out. I think Noah also accused him of aiming balls at him in between points. Noah refused to shake his hand after the match.

Try not to give us all a bad name, will you?

Amos was known for his temper, he was an emotional kind of guy.

Re: Amos Mansdorf and his temper

Not all Israelis have bad temper.
I, for example, have a terrible one.

Re: Amos Mansdorf and his temper

The only thing better than Israelis' temper is their sense of humour.

True story. It happened at the US Open 89. I saw it on TV. Noah was pissed and at the net told Mansdorf,'You don't curse at my family.' Noah's sister was in the box that day.

Re: Amos Mansdorf and his temper

I remember him playing a Davis Cup against India around 1987. He lost a match to and old Vijay Armitraj. Man, did he go ballistic.
