This was a surprise, at least to me. I expected better from Harrison.

Seems like the new generation of American players can't play on grass.

Very surprised thought Harrison would win this, reward for Giraldo is a match against Darcis for a place in the 3rd round

Yes, it's good to see Christian make a Challenger semi-final.

Giraldo was fantastic what i seen in this match

if you are talking about a player of the future on that court today, it wasnt Harrison

epic tantrum at the end too from Harrison :lol:

The few times I've seen Giraldo play I have been impressed. I'm not surprised he won this

Ryan Harrison's constant racquet throwing was so childish and un-Olympic. He needs to get his emotions in check. Talented kid but he needs to get his head out of his ass.

Racket abuse is awesome, good to see someone with character (and it does help him)
But he needs to stop playing so shit, too defensive

yes, can't push from behind the baseline and give Giraldo the initiative. At this point it seems like he won't really change, though, TBH

you would think losing to blake would be a wake-up call for his tactics. If he doesn't recognize it, then he can remain a perennial floater.

Even as Expected, but still feel bad about the result. Why he still up and down, never been consistence.

Why no go to get a great coach? It's tough to see him break Top ten this year.

A bit surprised by the easy scoreline and I couldn't watch, but if Giraldo's hitting well on grass I can definitely see how this would happen.

His mentor is Roddick so the tantrums are not surprising. He has learned well.
I hope he grows up.

I see he's getting a lot of s**t on twitter for the way he acted during the match.

Anyone have any footage of what actually happened?

one at the end he just threw his racquet into the ground in fury, really ferocious throw and smashed the thing

takes some power to break a raq on grass

probably left a big hole in the court as well

I didn't see the match, but this is all over the internet. Harrison is not 15yo any more. Behaving like a spoiled brat at the Olympics is just a big no, no. It is simply so disrespectful. I just can't respect players like Harrison and Tomic. Both are behaving like big divas, yet they won nothing. huge turn off for me.

Harrison is a mug. He will be fat in 4 years when his career flops.
