Re: Week 30 : Astana, Kazakhstan [Winner: Dudi SELA]

Well, as the posters in GM already mentioned, line judges were quite biased in favor of Kukushkin, and Sela was complaining to the umpire about this quite a few times. There were even couple bad calls in the tie-break. I wasn't watching the match from the start to the finish, so not sure, when some bad blood between them occurred. I was rooting for Sela in this match, but that was a very ugly ending.

Kukushkin called the trainer after he was broken immediately in the 3rd set (Sela was in momentum after winning 2nd set 6-2 and leading 1-0 by break in the 3rd ) too.

The crowd was hostile to the point of calling Sela names and shouting profanities at him, and Sela claimed that Kukushkin was urging them on. Still, it was a classless act of him not to shake hands.
