CH Kaohsiung R1: [WC] Lee def. De Voest 7-5 3-6 7-6(12)
Unfortunately, I only caught the MP, where Lee hit a dropshot and De Voest couldn't catch up to it. He was angry at the ump after the match, and De Voest is known for being ultra cool and calm so did anyone see what happened?

It's really, really amazing that De Voest never even made the top 100.
But matches like this show why
I am the Nelson Mandela of MTF
Federer, Nadal and Djokovic pander to plutocrats and charge huge appearance fees. The "trickle down effect" means that tournaments like the Heineken Open now have to pay appearance money for racketeers that many of us have never heard of. It's close to extortion.
At the end of Federer's first round match at the Australian Open a fawning interviewer asked about his kids and if he had bought coach Stefan Edberg a birthday present - no, by the way, the privilege of knocking up with 'King Roger' was enough of a present apparently.
