Romano Grillotti. They said Kiwi didn't shake hands with him but I cannot confirm from TV.

Is he Italian?

I heard also that Kiwi is blaming Russians for bad umpiring. Why?

He is Italian.

I wouldn't blame the Russians for bad umpiring, but I would blame Grillotti for his weak authority in this match because he allowed Andreev to dance around on his head requesting one medical timeout after another and disappearing for 10 minutes in the middle of the set after he got already treatment just a few minutes before.

the umpires in the ATP are the worst thing! They have made huge mistakes.. I think they make mistakes in every single match! I agree with Kiefer if he called him crap.. he must be!

When you blow a 75 40 lead you have no one to blame but yourself.

Yes, Kiefer didn't shake umpire's hand and it means he is not able to loose with honour.
And concerning Andreev - according to the rules player can take 1 timeout on court - 3 min and another outside the court - 10 min. So everything was OK.
BTW Kiwi's timeout before 3rd set lasted about 14-15 minutes.

Great job by Igor :)

Neely, I don't know really but Marat had some problems with Grillotti last year and this year again so I wonder if he's not always strong enough ump, I mean not enough authority or smth. I have seen some other guys complaining during his matches too so... :shrug:
The Russian linespeople were actually making calls agains Igor, they did nothing against Kiwi.

You Croat fans would be first to critsise Roddick or Agassi when Roddick or Agassi would have taken three timeouts with 10 minute break away from court in USA against Ljubicic and Ljubicic looses the match. Or who is it who is complaining all time about Roddick when he do something wrong or when Ljubibitch got wrong calls in US Open?

Grillotti behaved like an idiot. Just sitting there on his chair. :( It's too easy to say it's Kiefer's own fault. Of course he should have won, but I don't get it why all the Andreev fans can't admit that A. behaved like a total asshole.

We have even one female poster on this board, who tells us in her signature to "use fair play to win respect" and then at the same time she's cheering extremely for Andreev. Does that make any sense?

Lol you are obsessed man, does every post a ljubo fan make have to comeback to something involving ivan. Thats like you saying something totally irrevalent to haas and as soon as i see your post i bring i how shitty of a player he is. I understand that your frustration since your a haas fan but really cut it down a little, not every post some ivan fan makes should involve you coming in and saying how much you hate him.

IvanLjubicic: I don't say how shit Ivan is this time but tryed to saying you that you should be careful with judging here. Because I think if Ljubicic would play Roddick in USA and loose and Roddick would had three timeouts with 10 minute break away from court you croat fans would go and want to kill Roddick. Such thing would be interesting to see how you judge situation then ;)

anwer is easy: Andreev is cute little Russian in Moscow, like the nice and gentleman Federer or some Argentina player who have immunity on this forum even when they take doping. These men never do something wrong :)
When it is Hewitt/Coria/Haas/Roddick forum police like Sjengster and company are soon there to moan about them when they only complain about call or swear about missed shot :haha:

Maybe so but If Ivan led 75 40 vs Roddick, I would not blame anyone but Ivan no matter what, even if Andy took another 35 minute shit break.
