Safin pulls down his pants and gets punished by umpire...!

LOL...I dunno who of you are watching Safin vs. Mantilla, which is by the way a great five set match.

After a very cool rally which Safin won (amazing), Safin just pulled down his pants (yes he was wearing underwear) for a very short moment and laughed along with the crowd.

Then he got punished by the umpire, he already received a warning, so he lost a point...itīs soo hilarious!

This is really Marat's match to lose. Felix didn't step up when he had a mp and he served for the match how many times? 3 times??

Marat had (according the IBM stat board) 105 uf errors to 94 winners in the match, that's just sloppy play. Mantilla in contrast had 37 uf errors on the match and 34 winners, that's the kind of play you expect from a guy like Mantilla....

If Marat wins or loses, he can't play this way against Coria, Hewitt, Federer, or any other big name he will lose....

I got so pissed at Marat for not closing out this freaking match in the 4th that I'd personally like to fly to Paris and bash his head in with one of his rackets!

His serving after 4-1 in the fourth was pathetic. He jumps ahead 40-0 on serve and still manages to lose his serve? He jumps ahead 40-0 on Mantilla's sevre and still manages to lose the game?

TBE is right: He should be shot.

And I don't even have money vested in his win. I'm just so mad at him for not closing this match out!

and if he gives that lousy, "i'm tired" excuse i'm gonna get someone to shoot him! :D

tennisvideos
05-28-2004, 12:08 PM
Well that was just pathetic what the umpire did - penalising Safin a point for pulling his pants down. I just reviewed the DVD and Marat hit the most spectacular drop shot after retrieving a drop shot and then in celebration pulled his shorts down. Both players were smiling and it was all in fun. It certainly wasn't offensive ... the opposite I thought. ;)

The funniest thing is that in the slow motion replay the 2nd time you can see Mantilla checking Marat out in his undies. :lol: ;)
