Why do you hate Bogomolov?

I saw him last week in Rotterdam, he just has such an awful attitude on court, no character at all!
The same goes for me, but I actually like him :lol:

He does have character, he argued with the umpire for a whole set when he got a retarded warning. His character used to be a negative aspect when he was an annoying brat, but he has changed in the last couple of years.

Boggy easily belongs to the biggest failures in the Top 40 ever :facepalm:
yeh, even edging a slam seeding. Trying to think of comparably weak seeded players in recent years... Starace? Vliegen? GOATcia Grass Lord? At least he beat Nadal and reached a MS QF I guess :p Petz was seeded once I believe, but not complaining there, that's just awesome :lol:

Oh yeah the ball hitting the umpire's mic!

I usually like a player that makes some trouble on court, but with him, no.

Sometimes one big win makes a huge difference and it happens on many different levels. In Bogomolov's case it was miracle of last year's 2nd round in Miami as a disinterested Murray gave him a 6-1, 7-5 win. Probably it pumped up Bogomolov tremendously and out of a sudden from a Challenger journeyman he became a seeded player in a major. But his fairytale is near the end I think.

He's sometimes pretty entertaining with his attitude, though.

In his match with Bellucci at last year's Paris Paster's he asked the umpire if he could retire with having an injury. Seriously, who the fuck does that. Other players would fake an injury and retire or would ask the question more privately. This certainly mind fucked Bellucci, who's already a mental midget and Bogo really didn't have to be very impressive. He didn't tank it and actually played quite hard in the second set tiebreak, and won the match in 3.

Hmmm, I got the impression he hit that mike by accident in Rotterdam. May have been mistaken though, I sat behind the ump so couldn't really see it well.
He got a violation code for that, didn't he? :cool:

It was completely by accident (I believe he wanted to give the ball to a ball girl) and the ball hit the umpire chair with almost no pace at all, that's why it was a retarded warning.

That was exactly my impression of the incident as well (for as far as I could see what actually happened - I thought I had perhaps missed something as to why he got a warning).
Rather a :stupid: decision of that ump to give him a warning for that, indeed.
Accidents do happen, umps... :rolleyes:

I'm going to use this gif everytime someone takes out this mug.

Really cute. I suppose that you know what the translation of "Bogomolov" would mean in English? For those not in the know, Bogomolov = The one making a prayer to God. And I wish I had come up with this cute gif :) because Bogomolov is an incredible turd.
