Just to be clear, I was never accusing you. Like I've said, who it was doesn't matter, what does matter for Mick's sake, is that they should stop reporting posts of mine that may offend them. If they offend Mick, and he reports them, then fair enough - but others need to stay out of it, hence why I made those posts publicly, as I really don't want to have to personally PM the 40 or so people who voted for Mick in the pop con final, which IIRC - he lost, going away.

This Andreea often agrees in private to what she vociferously denies in public. I can also attest to that.

I had great uncles who were dragged away from their home and family to work for nazi-Germany. It's not as if they had a choice in the matter. The nerve to ask them to pay taxes for forced labor.
Sorry but this would really made me laugh if it wasnt so tragic for all involved

It was quite amusing to hear the clapping just suddenly turn to geering. I walked out halfway through the interview yelling some obscenity at him that he of course couldn't hear but it made me feel a hell of a lot better.

Basically, Berdych lost a lot of people today. Everyone walking out of the match were disgusted.

Almagro may not be a total sweetheart either but he wasn't at fault in that famous incident against Safin either (in Portugal IIRC) when Safin refused to shake his hand.
Again, couldn't agree more

I was really impressed with their relentlessness. They didn't waver at any point and never looked likely to run out of boo-gas.

Re: Comedy and tragedy thread - Rafachat Vol. 76

Peta, you can forgive Berdych now.
---------------------------------------
Tomas Berdych says he made a mistake by refusing to shake Nicolas Almagro's hand after beating the Spaniard in the fourth round of the Australian Open.

The Czech won in four sets but accused the Spaniard of deliberately hitting a ball at him while he was at the net.

Berdych was booed by the crowd during the post-match interview on the court.

But later he said: "What happened from Nico was not what should be happening in tennis. Maybe we both made a mistake, so it's even and that's it."

The incident occurred towards the end of the match when Almagro fired a short ball directly at his opponent at close range.

The seventh seed was forced to put his arm up in defence to prevent the ball hitting him in the face.

The shot was legal and the Spaniard apologised straight away.

But Berdych refused to shake hands with Almagro at the end which led to an eruption of vociferous booing from the crowd on Hisense Arena.

However, later the Czech revised his thoughts on the incident saying: "We don't have any problems together.

"Even if we see each other at other tournaments there won't be a problem. We can meet and have a practice."

But he remained frustrated with the Spaniard's choice of shot.

"Whoever has played tennis knows the court is pretty big and you always have space to put the ball in," added.

"And even if you stand just three or four metres from a guy [you don't have to] try to hit it straight at the face."

Giving his side of the argument, Almagro added: "I played to win the point and I leave with my head held high.

"The support of the public showed what happened. They were aware of what happened on the court.

"It was an important point as it was for a 0-40 but these things happen in the game of tennis."

Berdych, who beat the 10th seed 4-6 7-6 (7-5) 7-6 (7-3) 7-6 (7-2), will play world number two Rafael Nadal in the quarter-finals after the Spaniard beat countryman Feliciano Lopez 6-4 6-4 6-2 in two hours and 25 minutes.

Re: Comedy and tragedy thread - Rafachat Vol. 76

Well earlier he said he had no regrets about refusing. He's just saving face cos he knows he acted like a prize dick. He's lost me

I still don't believe Almagro did anything wrong either.

What mistake did Almagro make? He tried to apologise right away and it doesn't come across as an intentional shot either.

^ I saw the video. Almagro wasn't even looking to see where Berdych was. Just reacted instinctively to the point.
