    Stupid idiot: he deserved what he got, and ruined the game for the spectators. I can remember when Tim Henman did something similar back in 1995 (he thumped a ball at the net in frustration after losing a point, and hit a ball girl on the ear, making her cry). He had the cheek to try and argue he`d done nothing wrong.

    I don`t know what it is about tennis players and childish petulance, but they just seem to have far less self-control than other professional sportspeople.

    I`d like to see his face when he hears he`s been disqualified.
    It`s rare you see someone get what they deserve.

    What a fool! You simply cannot DO that! He`s lucky if he`s not banned for months.

    I think Andre Agassi started the tantrum trend didn`t he?
    I don`t recall anyone doing it before him.

    I agree with bassman56. "Nasty" Nastase was the first bad boy of pro tennis.

    (1) Disqualification
    (2) Forfeiture of tournament prize for runner up
    (3) Further fine and suspension
    (4) To be charged with assault

    They are currently looking for more books to throw at him. I am surprised they aren`t suing for damage to the sign.

    @Groogle: The funny thing is that he wasn`t losing the game at the time this happened. He had won the first set 7-6 (7-3). Yes, he was trailing in the second set - 3-4, after this point - but he certainly had not lost control of the match.

    He did lost control of his temper, though - obviously - and that`s that.
