Coaching from Tony? 30 seconds + for serve?

Can't look at players eyes during handshake, when losing?

Not my tv commentators (Star Sports), They certainly thought it was NOT OK.

They (vijay and the other guy) repeatedly said it was unbelievable that Nadal used that tactic etc etc.

More of the same petty shit from Nadal that we've seen for years. He was only more blatant about it because he was on the verge of defeat. Not to worry, though, Rosol wasn't affected by it and took out the trash.

I didn't watch it, but the way I've always seen things like this are that you're going to do what you need to do to win, and if that means getting under the skin of your opponent, so be it.

Poster Ash86 said Rosol said that rafa had already apologised to him 3 times for bumping into him. Yeah, he did it intentionally?

Also, lastly, I agree, that all this crying shit is pretty fucking boring. It's like, whatever. Rosol didn't give a fuck, so why do so many people here give a fuck? It ultimately does not matter at all, except for people mad that Nadal's reputation is good. Which is really what the complaining is about. All this morality bullshit is totally fucking comical, coming from people of THIS forum, who say the rudest things about these players. Now all of a sudden, it's all about being clean and sportsman. Yeah, right.

I saw it, and it was clearly intentional. That's what the reality is. Then when Rosol reacted, Nadal started saying sorry. Nadal tried to get into Rosol's head, and he was upset with tactics Rosol was also using. Both guys were using tactics, so I don't understand why only Nadal is being singled out. Both guys in fact, were blatantly using tactics. That's just how it is. People will need to accept the fact that is what is going to happen, and it will not change. But what Nadal did was wrong, and out of order.
