The match ws really quiet and normal until 1-0 in the 3rd set. Philippousis (serving) hit the ball which was going directly to Nalbandian's head, he could move and the point was for Australia, Philippousis dind't say sorry or sth like that so Nalbandian got really angry. In the next game, Nalbandian shouted c'mon in his face and then got broken (how stupid!). The crow was starting to shout more. Luckily, in the next game Nalbandian broke and he calmed down and could win. The referee also said sth abput the shouts but I was in the bathroom so I couldn't hear.
Seriously the crowd was behaving correctly and also Maradona, he didn't insult, I think someone advised him not to do it.
VAMOS ARGENTINA!!
VAMOS CHUCHO!!

Nalbandian is such a hypocrite it's annoying. He expected Flip to apologize after everything he said during the week? :lol:

Flip should have aimed at his nose, 90% of chance the ball would actually hit him.

not a great match for mark... in the end he seemed overwhelmed and a little too tense. The only good part of the match was when he fired that ball at david's fat head and almost hit him.

Mark didnt hide the fact he meant it...

"Without a doubt, it was meant to go straight at him. It was obvious. It's a tennis match and no matter who was on the other side of the court, I was going to do the same thing."

no not really, but i think given the fact he was playing infront of an annoying crowd and he was getting his arse whipped, it seemed like a good option to release some frustration.

...although, i think he did fire a big forehand at melzer during a match in newport a couple months ago.

Scud takes aim but misses

MARK Philippoussis admitted he literally took aim at David Nalbandian during his Davis Cup singles loss to the Argentine agitator today.

Philippoussis had local fans at Buenos Aires's Parque Roca Stadium hissing and jeering him after he attempted to drive a forehand into Nalbandian's body during his 6-4 6-3 6-3 defeat.

Nalbandian was forced to duck to avoid being struck by the ball and challenged Philippoussis to continue with such antics at his peril.

"Without a doubt, it was meant to go straight at him. It was obvious," Philippoussis said.

"It's a tennis match. It didn't matter who was on the other side. I had a short ball, the guy was sitting right there – I'm going to go at him."

The incident sparked Philippoussis into life and the Australian threatened a comeback when he broke Nalbandian for the first time in the match the very next game.

"The frustrating part for me was, at 2-1, it was very important ... that I was able to hold on to my serve and at least keep him out there, and unfortunately I couldn't do that," Philippoussis said.

"Definitely it's a little disappointing. The semi-finals of the Davis Cup, you always would like to try to put the team in a good position with a one-love lead, and I was unable to do that."

Jose Acasuso had Australia staring down the barrel of a 2-0 deficit in the best-of-five-match tie when he led Lleyton Hewitt 4-0 in the fifth set before the day's second singles rubber was suspended due to rain.

Despite Australia's precarious position, Philippoussis hadn't given up the ghost and said he'd grown a little tired of Nalbandian's trash-talk after the world No.4 spent the past month writing off the visiting team's chances of even winning a match this weekend.

"He was mouthing off. It's as simple as that," Philippoussis said.

"I don't really care about that. After Sunday, if he's still mouthing off and it's his success, then too good. If he doesn't, bad luck.

"We'll have to wait until Sunday. Anyone can talk as much as they want, it's not going to bother me. If that makes them any happier, great for them."

While he makes no secret of his dislike of Hewitt, Nalbandian thought he had a "wonderful relationship" with Philippoussis, having previously practised at the Scud's former residence in Miami, and said he put down today's clash to the heat-of-the-moment.
