Almagro acted like a petulant kid for much of the match and Safin acted like a petulant kid after the match. Not a lot more to it than that. Both of them have the tendancy to be pathetic and both displayed it in that match.

koellerer deserved every bit of that.. hillarious too.

handshake fail for good reason, these players (almagro, koellerer) are the most pathetic annoying scumbags on tour. im not sure about capdeville though.

edit: add stepanek too that, and murray although he has reduced the cmons slighlty.

It's no situation being referred to, only a discussion of the way rules and rankings work. The poster failed to recognise that whichever portion of the year a player earns his points in, they are of equal importance when it comes to the end. Only reason I put that in my signiature is because actually I was in the minority in having a correct understanding of that simple fact.

Any match that Federer loses to Murray, Del Pony or Joker has an unsporting handshake from the 3 times Stefan Edberg fairplay award winner.

I remember that after Philadelphia's semifinal '93, Rostagno literally shook Woodforde's hand who won 7-5 7-5. I saw it only once, 17 years ago, unfortunately no video on youtube but it's been recorded in my memory as something very weird.

"Derrick Rostagno was fined $1,000 for hitting a ball at the umpire after a controversial line call during the U.S. Indoor".

In this match Gonzo should break his racket over Sodo's head.

It'd have been funny and totally deserved.

Paul Capdeville is the other guy Ancic had a bit of a dispute with.

i think capdeville argued with the umpire because he wasn't happy with some line calls. then ancic told him to shut up and the fight started. it looked more dramatic as it actually was.

Remember watching this match on croatian TV, Crapdeville was behaving like shit all match long; complaining about every call(of course there were some wrong calls) and argueing wih the line judges, ball kids etc...

It was so cold, Roger's face was so funny. Like he felt disgust to touch Berdych's hand. Berdych always gives a strong handshake and looks his opponent in the eye, and Roger went right at the end of the net to make sure he ran off quickly and barely glanced at Tomas :lol:

I got the impression that Federer didn't like Berdych's roar. Federer was smiling though.

What happened here?

Safin fell near the net and called trainer. He had pain on his ankle if i remember well.
Almagro acted like a mug ; he didn't even ask Marat if he was "ok" and continued to play.
But i think it's more because "Mugro" was too young "mentally", not really by "wickedness".

One of the funniest ones which sticks in my mind is the Davy / Fed match from a few years ago. It was the first time in a long time, if ever, that Davy beat him. Davy it seems was quite pleased with himself and wanted to have a chat with Fed at the net, or was expected some praise, who knows. Well Fed ended up giving him the greased hand walking handshake. Davy, for whatever reason remained at the net for a few seconds and gave an expression of surprise. Either he did this to make Fed look like a Jerk or it was genuine disappointment, I don't know.

Does anyone remember which masters event that was. Footage would be hilarious.

I also miss 90's tennis, but you cannot compare a guy like Agassi -who had such a charism he totally embodied tennis- to nowadays' players who don't have such a personnality.
Andre Agassi had the most chaotic career which suited perfectly his caracter, and that's why he used to be liked so much by the public (of course his tennis was spectacular too, I greatly enjoyed his matches, especially his 1999 victory at the French Open which was so emotionnaly intense!)
Guys like that are so rare... I'm wondering when the next talented showman will show up;)
