Re: Faithful Mitya Slaves Cheering their Strawberry-Cream Hills Master in WIMBLEDON!!!

Re: Jarkko Nimienen (22) def. Dmitri Tursunov (27) 7-5, 6-4, 6-7, 6-7, 9-7


"Drama at the end there. When Jarkko broke for 8-7, Dmitry hit a ball. Umpire said he aimed it at him and gave him a point penalty. Then when they shook hands, Tursunov grabbed his hand and pulled it hard, pulling umpire forward slightly while glaring at him. Umpire pulled his hand away and Tursunov pointed up at him, and then tournament referee had to step in in case anything else happened."

I have to say it's all very surprising. Not Mitya style..He must've been really misjudged by this umpire, guess it wasn't just one mistake..Unfortunately during this Wimbledon umpires screwed up many times[take Henman's match 4 example]..Still shocking..
