Rusedski's saying Gael should be punished for warping the crowd and the Tournie Referee into playing on
This is SO wrong, I haven't had time to read other threads at all, but I hope people have set the facts straight?
We all could see that Fognini first wanted to keep playing and only changed his mind much later when he saw his coach, is Rusedski blind or what? My commentators had gotten it. And they all (Gaël, Fabio and the supervisor) have confirmed it since then. Fabio answered he wanted to keep playing when the supervisor asked them, that's why they played on, of course!
Gaël played like crap, as expected, people can criticize him for his game as much as they want, but he really didn't behave badly, it annoys me big time if he gets bashed for that. He did nothing wrong. That was the most positive thing for me, actually, at least he swallowed his pride for once and he tried until the end, which he hadn't done for a while.
