I think we can find a few picky examples of players getting emotional during matches but I have never seen Mardy doing anything controversial or unfair. What examples can you give? I have seen him clap for opponents shots a lot and usually he is very polite at the net unlike Roddick or Blake!

Mardy Fish mouthing off at Gasquet, almost got into a fight with Varlet. Then there was the argument with PHM at Madrid.

I still remember his hectic match vs PHM in Madrid in 2007 when the bad blood was so much that the umpire had to calm them down :lol: They were close to fighting each other on the net more than once.
This is not to say something bad about Mardy but it was really an intense match.

What are you talking about? He's no stranger to deliberately being a prick. What was it when he tried very hard to suck Gasquet in, something along the lines "I just returned from honeymoon and you've still not beaten me" and continued blabbing during changeover, while Richard was shrugging shoulders and saying I don't care and ignoring him. Just one example that came to mind.

Yes, Fish has an issue with frenchies, I don't know why...maybe he has some trauma being abused by some frenchmen when he was a kid or something and now cannot stand them. :p

Ljuba took the match by stepping up his level when he needed to there at the end. Mardy played passively, and deserved to lose after not taking advantage of his opportunities in the 5th set.

Nice to see how much the win meant to Ivan. His little dance was endearing, very unexpected but you just had to be happy for him. I don't see him beating Bellucci, though.
