Nalbandian with bad behaviour / nearly disqualified

JMG

After the re-break in the 2nd set, Nalbandian (with already one warning) smashed the racket a couple of times and got another warning. Then he showed bad behaviour (obviously for minutes) and didn't want to continue the match. Schüttler got 2 games for free to go 6-3 4-3 up. Then Nalbandian gave the match away with unmotivated errors.

At least that's what the Halle website says.

At least that explains part of the reason why Nalbo lost 6 games in a row in the second set having been 3-0 up.

Well, considering what is written on the homepage and what Rainer said in his press conference I think that must have been an historic bad outburst from Nalbandian if even Rainer is so shocked by what happened. Very very bad of Nalbandian acting like this :smash: Sure you can get a warning for smashing a racket, nobody cares, maybe sometimes even a point penalty, but if you're still acting like that and this report sounds as if he was going completely nuts and crazy like a wild animal, then it's really very strange if you also get game penalties and when you are at brink of disqualification from the match. He also said that he delayed the game for several minutes.

Good for Nalbandian that the other matches scheduled on the Centre Court took too long so that his and Rainer's match have been moved to an outside court with no TV coverage :lol: Or else lots of more people would have witnessed that ;)

So that's the reason it was such an easy win for Rainer... :lol:
I was suprised he didn't even needed three sets... But this explains a lot! ;)

This is the only one of David's matches in Europe I have missed all year (typical bad timing), so I can't give a first hand report,- but from what I hear David did behave badly and deserved the two game penalties and whatever fine will surely follow. He might be my favourite player, but I don't condone such behaviour in others and I can't condone it in him either. Denaon is right in that he does have some personal issues to deal with right now that are causing him stress - but that's no excuse. I am sorry that Rainer was caught up in this fiasco - kudoes to him for keeping his head and winning the match - and I'm sorry for the German fans that had to witness such a spectacle. :sad:

Wow, I just read Rainer's press conference. Unbelievable that Nalbandian stopped playing for about 10 minutes! The umpire really should have disqualified him.

Why don't they have a camera on that court? :angel:

David!!! :rolleyes:
Now I can finally understand why he lost 6 games in less than 15 minutes.
I hate seeing him like this, I hope he can put his head in place for once and stop acting like this. It's unacceptable. One can understand he's having a very bad personal moment, but if this is affecting him sooooo much, he should stop for a while, and once he's ready come back. This is not good for tennis, for his fans, his rivals and more importantly for himself... :sad:

I guess it just exploded inside of him and several factors accumulated to this that he was so frustrated with the play, with himself, with anything else: bad play, being moved to an outside court on rather short notice, against a home crowd favourite, wrong decisions, personal problems, not much success in the past (but he still won Munich not too long ago! but relatively bad results in the rest of the tournament since AO), a bad day, not in the mood for playing tennis?! we can only guess as we can't look into his mind what was going on :shrug:

As far as I know, the loss of his father at the end of last year and a hepatitis (-like ?!) desease a two or three months ago which is difficult to get rid completely because you may still feel weak for longer time after that until it's completely gone out of your body. These are two things that I heard of.

Nalbandian outburst has Schuettler going through
07 June 2005


“I have never seen something like this before,“ a puzzled Rainer Schuettler said after his dubious win over David Nalbandian. A solid performance saw Schuettler winning the first set, and the two exchanged breaks before the crowd witnessed a memorable out-burst.
Up 3-2, Nalbandian repeatedly smashed his racket and received back-to-back game penalties that gave Schuettler a 4-3 lead. Nalbandian, who also asked for the supervisor, finished the match without any effort.

“That was a strange match,” admitted Schuettler, not at all a grass court specialist. “But after all, it was good to hear the game, set and match phrase again.” Hot-blooded Nalbandian, a former Wimbledon finalist, stormed off the court in anger paired with thunderous catcalls.

Wow. Not a Nalbandian fan but wtf did he do??? And if his personal life is that bad it might be a good idea to take a break. Sometimes when life is rough you try and lose yourself in your work but it seems as if he's losing it in his work which is tennis.

Maybe someone saw it live and can report?

Like Malisse and Schalken he should be eliminated from this match. Is angry because Schuttler has good day to beat him after 5 loss matches and acting like idiot in this match.

I'm so sad to read this. David is by far the most talented Argentine player. However, no matter what his personal problems are, he can't behave like that. I hope by now he has realized what he's done and he apologizes to the public and to his opponent. Argentine best tennis players' conduct on court is not up to their game level.

why doesnt he takes some time off if he has personal issue, I hate to see him play so badly - doesnt do him any good at all

my thoughts exactly, he should give himself a break and come back when he's fully focused on tennis again.

It is difficult...each player has a character and then, things happen, in life, difficult things, like death of a parent, or coach, an injury or illness, regular lesser things, too, relationship disappointments, and each player comes to these events with different stregths and weaknesses. David's father's death has left him anxious, frightened and raw, and somehow compromised his physical health. My guess is he is fighting depression with anger, cycling between the two. Time off from tennis might be necessary but could push him further into depression. We can only speculate what stresses his father's death put on him, how he and his family handles loss and grief. Anyway, I hope he will apologise, even if that doesn't do much for the underlying situation, it will square him with the public. I am sure he is hoping that playing tennis will help him feel better. It certainly backfired today, sadly.
