Amen to that. I watched the tape of it again today for the first time since it actually happened cuz my mom wanted to see what all the fuss was about. The racket was no where near hitting Grosjean. It totally flies off the tv screen and clearly off the court. It didn't even land like on the court from what ESPN2 showed -- maybe they were doctoring the tape though while Mary Carillo was busy calling Kiwi a "mutt"
( she better pray she never comes near me
). People need to make drama out of something and that was the perfect thing to make it out of. But like you said, that is the thing that is pissing me off. Say what you want about Kiwi, have your own opinion, but don't make up stories about how he's trying to like behead someone else. He never had any intention of hurting Grosjean and that is what bothers me. I want to sit everyone down in my living room and play them all the tape of it happening. The thing never went near Grosjean. And then people take pix taken at an aerial angle facing grosjean that make it look like the racket went right past his face when it was very high over his head and not near him.
With that said, Kiwi still is and will always be my favorite
