I was hoping Malisse would win this match, but a good match by both guys.

I have lost all respect for Massu today. At 4-4* in the fifth set with Malisse serving at 15-15, Massu hit a deep ball and shouted "LONG" so Malisse thought it was out and let it go, but it went in and gave Massu a crucial point and momentum boost. What a cheating scumbag. Malisse even acknowledged it before he served, he said "Everybody knows you do stuff like this."

In what language did Massu yell? English? :confused: (Not that I doubt that Massu was an ass)

Oh yeah...Nico hit the ball, and in the very short period of time that it took for the ball to go across the court Nico was able to position himself to see that he had a chance to confuse Malisse by yelling LONG and figured hey this is a way to cheat and win - so yelled LONG! In English....a language he only uses when he has to.

:haha:

I have to re-play the match after Rafa's match is over, but there was one point where the announcers on ESPN said that Malisse was complaining that a person behind Nico stood up during the point, and he was complaining about it.

And complained between changeovers to the umpire that he didn't like all the noise the crowd was making.

It was a heavy topspin ball with little pace, he obviously saw that Malisse was unsure whether or not to go for it. Anyway, he either said OUT or LONG just as the umpire said it and it visibly confused Malisse.

Massu is no saint as you make him out to be, you go and criticize all players and chastise any player that is beating Massu or leading against him, but you refuse to acknowledge anything that he does wrong. Even during the Olympics, he was clearly taking minutes between points which was clearly against the rules.

Excuse me???

:haha:

I've never even seen your name until today.

Name which players that I've dissed here.

One, I've never said Nico was a saint....nor do I want him to be. ;) :devil:

And if you read my last post on Nico's board, I did criticize him. I said he was serving poorly, that his bh is terrible, and if he didn't improve in those areas, he'd lose against Max in the next round. Plus I criticized him strongly for blowing a 2 set lead.

So...now what's your point?

If you're upset that Malisse lost, sorry. I like Xavier. If it wasn't agianst Nico, I wouldn't want to see him blow a two break lead in the 5th set. But don't accuse Nico of cheating when he didn't just because you're upset about it.

I like both players but it was disappointing to see Massu do that in the fifth set, totally unnecessary.

You`re excused.

I taped it and am watching the replay.

1) At 4-4 in the fifth set, Nico was serving.
2) The score was never 15-15. It was 0-30 Nico down after two points.
3) Brad Gilbert and another guy were the commentators, and Luke Jensen was doing color from behind the chair.
4) The point in question was at 4-4, Nico serving 15-30, Brad said that a person behind Nico stood up in the stands during the point, and Malisse was complaining about it. Though it looked like Malisse was complaining more about the call gesturing that the ball was long rather than in. And Malisse's behavior prompted Luke Jensen to say something not so nice about Malisse. (And btw even if Nico had yelled, Malisse wasn't going to get to that ball - clearly a winner).
5) After they came back on, Luke Jensen who was right there, said that Malisse was complaining to the chair umpire asking him to quiet down the crowd and people were standing up. Luke said Malisse was upset with Nico because Nico told him to just play (which I found amusing since Nico complains a lot himself. :lol: .)

If you are going to accuse a player of cheating, you should try to get the story right.

Your fanaticism with Massu has led to your ignorance towards his antics and double standards.

:haha:

Then I guess Luke Jensen and Brad Gilbert are Nico fanatics too. ;)

But this wasn't for you - it was to set the record straight for others reading this.

You've obviously got something against Nico...and now myself...so I don't really care what you think.

I have received several reps agreeing with my post. They will not be named , but it is to show that I am not alone on this.

I watched a little from the third set onward
didnt see the end of the fifth as they moved to another match
but how did Xman blow his lead
his was a break up & about to have a double break
what a tough loss
2 strong players meeting very early on in the tournie
either will be extremely tired
what did MAssu do?
