Gilbert would be the crazy king though :lol:

Ilie Nastase.

Compared to Nastase the worse mcenroe was a really gentleman.
Nastase was far ahead everybody.

How is Jimmy Connors getting off the hook without even a mention in this thread?

That said, I'm thinking Nastase. Maybe Pancho Gonzales? Nah, Nastase.

For current players, Irakli Labadze, whose nickname on the circuit is "Freakshow".
Is Labadze even a current player anymore, or is he back in Georgia living like a king?

Honorable (dishonorable) mention: Rios, Gaudio and the master of pout, Nicolas Kiefer.

BTW: Mac and Marat would be happy they were on the top of this list. If Blake were reading this, he'd probably feel embarrassed.

05-02-2007, 05:59 PM
I used to think it was Safin but Gaudio's recent break down on the court convinced me that he is in McEnroe's league. Safin still has a slight advantage.... he did pull his pants down in Roland Garros.

Malisse was defaulted (at the Miami masters) because he allegedly cursed at a linesperson. He denies it to this day. Quite frankly, I think he had cause to be ****ed.

After Johnny Mac tipped a television camera on the cameraman, find it hard to accept his behavior as just crazy. Just cannot recall the tournament. Now this guy is on CSI:NY!

Jack Brasington or Vince Spadea?
I saw Brasington and someone else play Federer and I think Allegro. Good behavior all around. The Federer funhaus was in full glory.

Goran is deserving of a spot on this poll, but he is so beloved, maybe that is why people leave him off. Also because there were three of him and really only one of him was the bad Goran.

Kobble
05-02-2007, 09:06 PM
How about Goran holding his hand up as Rafter's serve is on the way? Goran and Safin are crazy in a lovable way. Nasty was just over the top, and McEnroe was plain rude.

What do you mean by crazy? Showing a lot of emotions when things don't go well? That would be Safin, Nastase, Goran..

Disrespecting your opponent, cursing at umpire, cursing at opponent and humiliating them in any other way? that would be Roddick, Connors, etc..

Good point Vlad. But I think history has been kind to Ilie Nastase. Look, I'm one of the three or four biggest Nastase fans I've ever known, but I would be the first to admit that he was not just kooky hilarous and talented.

Sadly, Nasty was, at times, abusive and disrespectful toward his opponent. The Hans Jorgen Pohmann match at Forest Hills is a case in point. I was at that match -- with seats good enough to hear every single vulgarity. I remember them vividly. I was a little kid, so I did not understand it all, but believe me, it was sad to see, and jarring to think that the situation could come to blows at any moment.

Makes Jimmy and Roddick look like 14 and unders. So I'd probably move him to to your second paragraph.

But he's also blessed with the lovable gene. Crazy for sure.

Know whatcha mean,
his craziness can't be seen,
beyond obscene,
the way he primps and preens.

Vincenzo skates,
then he contemplates,
the fate,
of the girl across his dinner plate.

His game's not really positive
nor is it negative.
But at least he is sensitive
to the needs
of the ladieeeez
like the winds in the trees, oh geez,
it's time for practice,
He's gonna whack this,
groundstrokes side ta side don't miss,
you cannot act this...
tennis player thing,
the top ten is gonna ring
with the name that's sure to bring
fear. Yeah this is clear.

His name is Spadea,

Agree. This post should be renamed "Craziest player asides from Koellerer". I have mixed feelings about him. He's fun to watch (not much for his tennis) but there are times he makes you wanna see him expelled from the tour. Even makes his opponents cry sometimes :cry:

I was playing Geddy Lee of Rush and had a great game in a pro am. And then I started playing with him on a semi regular basis. I noticed that the guy was more competitive than any pro I have ever played against. Which is probably why he got to where he did.

The second last time I played with him, he couldn't really get much going. All of a sudden, he takes his racquets, plural, out of his racquet bag and promptly makes like Pete Townsend and destroys them over the net post. I mean, turning them into confetti. So I think he should get a mention.
