Not there today, sadly. :p

There are a few fairly regular posters here that have been known to go, so with any luck they will report back this evening. At any rate, we should hear of the incident on the Notts Open website I should imagine.

I'd be surprised if it is NOT Dima. :lol: :scared: I mean, he has a history of anger management failure, and losing comes naturally to a journeyman doubles player like Haggard.

Russian sixth seed Dmitry Tursunov was thrown out of the Slazenger Open in Nottingham on Tuesday after storming off court during a doubles match.

The 25-year-old, who was partnering Chris Haggard, walked off with the pair trailing Simone Bolelli and Andreas Seppi 6-4 3-1 after disagreeing with a line call.

The Italian pair were awarded victory and it was expected Tursunov, who was due to face Swede Thomas Johansson in the second round on Wednesday, would be fined for his actions.

However, the rulebook of the Association of Tennis Professionals states that "at the discretion of the Supervisor, one or both of the players may be withdrawn from all other events, if any, in that tournament".

An ATP statement said: "After reviewing the situation, the ATP Supervisor has withdrawn Dmitry Tursunov from the singles tournament at the Slazenger Open.

"Thomas Johansson will now advance directly to the quarter-finals."

I mean it could've been solved another way but in a way the punishment fits the crime. He denied the crowd what they paid for by leaving and so he shouldn't get the chance to perform again.

Denied the crowd what they paid for, so the punishment for him is to deny the crowd further what they paid for by withdrawing him from the singles. That makes sense.

A small fine would be punishment enough in my opinion. He just defaulted the match, it's not as if he threw his racquet at the umpire or anything.

What about denying the next day's crowd the "pleasure" (which normally it would be) of seeing him involved in his next match...not like his poor display in the doubles match had ANYTHING to do with his singles match. :shrug: So now there is one fewer match for the paying public to see tomorrow...doesn't exactly benefit them.

Don't agree with the rule, even if he behaved like a tosser. Unless there was much more to it, of course. But only the people there will know.

Horatio Caine
06-17-2008, 10:36 PM
Of course, Haggard suffered badly by Tursunov's behaviour, but I think the more fitting punishment would have been to take some of Tursunov's prize-money for this week off him, and given to Haggard for loss of potential earnings...not that he really would have earned much anyway, but that is not the point.

To all those who're saying he shouldn't have been pulled from the singles because the crowd won't get as much entertainment tomorrow:
Karlovic (defending champ) vs Querrey isn't even on centre (where most of the crowd are at Nottingham) so they had enough top matches anyway.
He deserved to go.

1. Who gives a stuff about the upper-class English crowd?

2. Your argument is paradoxical. You say that the crowd deserved to see him play, yet the crowd who have bought tickets for the following day now get nothing. And anyone who had tickets for both days, now loses out even more.

I'm telling you all since a few months this Tursunov is one of the dumbest players on tour. This guy has an IQ like a mule. Never was the word "brainless" more accurate as for this guy.

and people like jez or rosie are a fan of this tool :haha:

On the contrary, I think Dima is one of the smarter players going around. So to say that he has a low IQ is a fallacy.

The way he acts on the tennis court is a different matter. Composure and IQ are completely different qualities. There is no discernible correlation between the two.

Your country man Ludwig van Beethoven also had an irascible temperament. Are you going to tell me that one of the most prodigious composers the world has ever seen has an "IQ like a mule", or is "brainless"? I don't think so.

The fact that you think what he did is perfectly justifiable means you're obviously a complete moron.

When you step on the court, you're supposed to act like a proffessional, whether or not you think the tournament is "shitty." While pseudo tennis fans like you are only interested in grand slams, some people take the sport seriously, even doubles.

This was not a protest, it was Tursunov being a whiny little bitch.

I completely disagree.

If a tennis player thinks a tournament is "shitty" noone forces him to take part in it.
But if he takes part he is supposed to play according to the rules.

To leave the tennis court because of a bad line call, is just ridiculous and can in no way be accepted.

I am not a friend of people who just take everything as it comes and don´t go against things which they think are wrong. I think it is ok for a tennis player to have long discussions with the umpire. But at the end everyone has to accept the final decision of the umpire and if he can´t do it, he needs to learn this.

Just leaving the court shows that Tursunov is not able to accept a decision against him. However this situation was like, however obvious the false line call was, at the end everyone has to accept the final decision from the umpire.

Totally agree with this, along with the entire post as a whole :hatoff:
Tursunov is not the first or last player to be victimized (allegedly) by a bad call. He chose to overreact - costing not just him but also his partner the match with no possibility of a comeback - and now has to pay the price. Being disqualified from singles contention does sound rather harsh but, under the circumstances, still deserved.

Well I just addded that bit to be kind to both players as the outcome of the match was probably already decided, with or without the disputed line call :p The main point is that, while he perhaps wasn't 'Spartan' enough to actually try and fight for a win, he couldn't even be bothered to stick around and go through the motions :o

2 who cares about MM doubles? Anyone know who the FO doubles champions are?

3 Haggard is a 37 year old washed up club standard doubles player with 0 singles points entering every mm tournament for mm prize money. He should partner another washed up 500 year old doubles hack not a top 40 singles and doubles pro on babysitting duties.

4 singles players contracted to a tournament should not be FORCED to enter doubles.



Tursunov is innocent

This is just rediculous.

So you are saying that because the interest of the audience for a doubles match is not so high people can behave like children?

And a player who only plays doubles because he is not a very good singles player should be happy to get any doubles partner and therefore should not be bothered by crazy behaviour of his partner?

I don´t really get your point :o

Look...it is pretty simple. You don't walk off the court in huff even if you are playing a recreational league match in your home town, much less a professional event. Can you imagine sitting in the crowd watching an event and one of the players you paid $ to watch simply walked off the court?

Can you imagine Kobe Bryant walking off the court last night during the Celtics whipping of the LA Lakers in the NBA finals because he didn't like the refs calls?? So freaking ridiculous that anyone can defend Tursunov. There is simply no excuse.

I expect his fine to be major and I would not be surprise if he was suspended for a month (which would mean missing Wimbledon).

The decision to ban him from the tournament that has already started is ridiculous. It's not fair to the fans and other players in the tournament. I think he definately should be fined, maybe supended, but to pull a player out, give another player a walkover upsets the whole draw and tournament. Stupid decison by the tournament director. The incident happened in a doubles match and they pulled him from singles.

And it is fair to the fans and his doubles partner when he decides to walk off court :cuckoo:

Being suspended is worse than getting thrown out of 1 tournament so I don't see your point.
IMO, the tournament organisers did the right thing. Hell, suspend him for a while.

Yeah I am one of the very few who thinks that McEnroe was a disgrace to the sport. Anyway, Roddick said some pretty harsh stuff in his Kohlschreiber match at the AO this year :lol:

It's called respect for others and that's what humanity is lacking nowadays.

:confused:

Humanity lacks many more important things than that.
