Sure Berrer hitting the overhead straight into the net was a horrible and embarrassing moment. But as a coach I felt that Jimmy Connors should not have been so openly disrespectful of Andy's opponent. Maybe it's because I believe in karma. I don't believe in gloating. And I also believe that what goes around comes around. When Andy makes mistakes, others may be equally unsympathetic. For shame Jimmy.

I think everybody aside from Berrer and his coach will have laughed at that one, almost impossible not to.. I doubt any offence was meant.

Everyone whiffs an overhead like that from time to time... Jimmy's school girl giggling over that point and several others was simply gross!

He was an ass when he played and he's an ass now. Zebra's don't change their stripes. He fits very well with Roddick!

Maybe somebody's coach will laugh at Andy when he gets his ass kicked. ;)

Didn't he also laugh when Roddick made mistakes? I thought there was a point when Roddick was frustrated and looked at his direction but there he was, all pink with glee.

Jimmy laughed even harder when Andy whiffed two shots in a row. None of us have any idea what was going in the box during any of those points and there is no telling what Connors was smiling at all night, it certainly wasn't the way Andy was playing.

Bad Andy, no cookie.

Well....I mean, Jimmy's not exactly known for being a polite guy. I bet he'd laugh if the Duck did that too.

Jimmy spent most of the 3rd set giggling to himself. Every time the camera went on him he was doing it. I don't think it was directed at Berrer. He just seemed to be enjoying his evening.

You are wrong. Jimmy Connors is the definition of class.

That day, Roddick was Federer and Berrer was Roddick.

So not true. He was already laughing at Berrer and simply continued laughing til the end of the match.

Like I said, what goes around comes around. Jimmy's arrogance was not a pretty sight.

I must say that I have never seen Andy disrespect any opponent. On the contrary, Andy goes out of his way to be charming and respectful. I hope he tells his employee/coach that he did not appreciate that behavior. :eek:

Don't worry. Uncle Toni will be rolling on the floor laughing when Nadal schools Roddick.

True.

And everyone smiles when a player makes a horrid mistake. Sometimes even the player does too.

No big deal.
