If I were a horrible person I'd post the Nole horror pics or the "dance" video but I wouldn't do that even to my worst enemy ever. I hope A. has been able to avoid all of it because that could make her blind. And no, despite Rafa's optimism I'm not waiting for the clash, don't want baby Rafa get damaged again.

Congrats Evita!

Why, Novak, why? Pfffft...I like that song.

It's a bit desperate, don't you think? Esp. if you do that when the opponent is still on court.
Apparently, he's been rehearsing those "dance" moves for 4 weeks before Montreal.

Yes, I mean I don't hate the guy like A. does or anything but that's just too embarassing. No enough. Rafa does his fair share of silly things but Nole needs better PR advice pronto.

Btw how I love Rafa's genuine happy smile!

I haven't seen Novak's dancing and I don't care to, thank you.

Raonic was never particularly high in my estimation but after this incident he's even lower. That was not fair play. And to then read he considered the situation "lucky"...

Maria, any particular picture you're talking about regarding Rafa's smile? Or just in general?

Naah Milos is still cool! *Melanie should really drop by from pinterest*
I don't go around calling Delpo a crybaby, he's cool too and one of my faves. In a match everything can happen. Actually Mo Lahyani is to blame, he's been seriously slipping up lately.


And I mean Rafa's smile after a win when he's genuinely happy!

I'm not exactly blaming Raonic, I know the umpire is to blame but still. It's like Raonic himself said - if you have no hawk-eye and your opponent gets a bad call and you know it's bad - do you concede the point? Obviously you don't have to but it's nice and fair if you do. I've seen players do it, even Djokovic. IMO it's the right thing to do. Of course, often the players themselves aren't really sure whether a ball caught a line or not so they don't concede anything but in this case Milos clearly knew he should have lost the point.

I have only been awake for an hour and I wasn't home last night. I have no idea what you two are talking about and I won't be able to figure it out for at least another hour. Sounds like it's two things I won't like.

Ahh Melanie, we're fine here. Rafa is winning and in a good mood.

Milos could've 'done the right thing' I agree but that doesn't make me like him any less. He's under immense pressure to do well at home and once you give away a point you never know what might happen.
Safin conceded points too but then he was a softie to become a true champion anyway.

My new faves Raonic, Janowicz and Dimitrov look more like the Connors-McEnroe era guys, not just pc answers & stuff. So should be fun times ahead actually if we add Tomic to the mix.

Raonic messed up big time, Maria.

Raonic's actions on court is one thing. I can understand the temptation mid-match. However, he had so many people watching. If the temptation was too big during the match, he should have thought it over once he stepped off court. Apologise or something.

But no, he gives an answer like "hypothetically yes, technically no", when confronted with the question that the point was Delpo's.

Having said that, I don't think that Raonic should be crucified for this. The outrage against it is a bit exaggerated.

---

A non-PC answer is not necessarily fun or interesting. It's a cliché too often used on MTF but non-PC answers can often also be rude and/or dumb. We need strong personalities in tennis, not dumb ones.
