Interesting video of Roddick. I've seen that video once but I never noticed that he moved his right food up on his serve back then.

I personally think the Malisse one was worse. What was he so angry at?

No way. Murray threw a hissy fit when Del Potro hit a ball at him last year.

By the way, I don't know why Lendl's video is on here. That's not bad behavior. It's a perfectly legal tactic.

Are you crazy or something? The Malisse video was much worse, he was screaming in the umpire's face and smashing rackets. I would have been so scared. In the Roddick video, he was pretty much throwing a tantrum like a 5-year old. Are 5-year olds disgusting human beings?

People like you are the reason for all the bad things in the world.

Did I condone what Roddick did? What he did was wrong. I'm merely pointing out that what Malisse did was many times worse.

Should I shut up because my opinion is different than yours?

I do not know the word "disrespect" personally. I know what it means, however. However, it seems that you don't know how to spell.

Oh, and that Lendl video doesn't belong here. It was 100% intentional, but it's an entirely legitimate play in tennis. If your opponent is crowding the net, you are entitled to go right at their face to discourage them from getting so close.

The most spectacular tantrum I remember is McEnroe smashing a row of water bottles or containers (glass, I think) on a bench -- with his racquet. Haven't been able to find it, but I believe it was during a match in Sweden.

Absolute worst behavior ??
I don't think so.

Serena raised [or more acurately lowered the diginity of the sport ]
the bar last week. The Roddick or Malise outbursts were anger vents and
not assaults with a weapon and a threat to kill.

And the ruling bodies are still silent.
So sad.

ooo wait, heres a video that beats the malisse video.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5sr3A10qZkE&feature=related

Roddick is a disgusting human being. A person with a huge ego and is extremely disprespectful. I cant believe people actually like him

I disagree with you here. I thought your first video (malisse) was a much better example of bad behavior. In fact, that player was unbelievably out of control! This Roddick clip was much more of a run-of-the-mill yelling from a player to a ref type of stuff. ..nothing particularly new. BTW, I like Roddick.

These things make you think...

If the Big Eye (or whatever it is we call that camera nowadays that watches the line calls) was around back when many of these videos were shot, would we have had as many fun scenes to replay here? Lots of players yelling at at the refs....

In any case, Mac's my all-time favorite yeller!

Really Bad Sportsmanship:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1aDy1v8YpzU (McEnroe)

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1JwbmhFOLbg (assorted players)


Someone with GREAT sportsmanship and behavior, Borg, who never showed his anger. Watch this rare event:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=amG_wgdh44U

I put Borg up there with Laver as far as guys that acted impeccably on court. Sampras was also well behaved, Connors and McEnroe were horrible. Nadal and Federer, while both being very good, in terms of sportsmanship/behavior, both lose points. Nadal overreacts with fist pumps, etc., while Federer has been known to have some angry outbursts/question everything, once in a while. You never saw Borg do ANY of that EVER. He just went about his business, seemingly unfazed, never breathing hard, whether he was winning or losing, all the time. He was never out of a match, and a great front runner.

Nadal fist pumps have nothing to do with bad behavior. They express joy, excitement and determination.

I agree CMM that the Nadal outbursts do express joy, excitement and determination, but at times, he uses it as a bit of "gamesmanship" or intimidation of his opponent. He does that to Federer quite often. It's not too bad, but it's not exactly perfect behavior/sportsmanship. I really don't mind it, but as far as old school behavior, it's a little over the line. Yet, he's a lot better overall than a lot of other players and I think he exhibits good sportsmanship overall.

I dont know about all you guys, but apparently everyone has forgotten Serena's 'little' outburst. You guys bring up all these other players (Mac, Connors, Safin, Roddick, Fed?, Nadal? etc) but they just argue and whine, some more lividly than others. However, Serena verbally threatened to kill a lines-man, then she immediately denied it! What nerve?! In all these videos that have been posted not one player has threatened to kill a lines-man or an umpire. Serena is the only one, to my knowledge, to have done this. Then to try and save face, she apologizes to indirectly to the lines-women she threatened. Then she posts on her webpage, twitter, facebook, whatever, her apology again, but still denies saying that she threatened to "shove a ball down [the lines-woman's] throat and kill her." It doesn't matter whether she foot faulted or not. Half of these videos are based on whether the ball was in or out. The way she acted after receiving the penalty was appalling. This shows her true character.

I fully agree here ! !

But it is worse than that.
What Serena did was a criminal act punishable by incarceration.

When Serena made aggressive moves toward the linewoman [twice] she was guilty of an assault for which she would be arrested in a normal life setting.

Furthermore, when she was waving her racquet a few feet from the woman's head is became an assault with a deadly weapon.

Don't believe me ?
Ask any lawyer.

The threat to kill and subsequent denials just add to this unbelievable behavior never seen in modern professional tennis history.

The really sad part is that she does not seem to know the magnitude of what she did.
She seems to think her celebrity status puts her above the law.
And the ITF, WTA, and USTA apparently feel the same way.

If i remember correctly some of the JMac calls looked pretty bad, but his reaction was the highlight.

Does anybody have the vid of Nadal vs Fed Wimbledon were the ball looks to land about 30 cm out and after fed challenges hawk eye shows it as in.?

what does the article about baghdatis have to do with anything?? it is behavior off the court, for one, and secondly, i don't see what's so bad if he did participate in a "social uprising." he is proud of his country, and taking a stand against what he believes wrong--turkish occupation of northern cyprus. there is nothing wrong with that; in fact, i find it commendable. more players should get politically involved, use their presence to help change injustices. that's why ashe will always be one of my very favorites. :)

Oh, and that Lendl video doesn't belong here. It was 100% intentional, but it's an entirely legitimate play in tennis. If your opponent is crowding the net, you are entitled to go right at their face to discourage them from getting so close.

This guy completely loses it!! So funny I am loving this thread. Foot faulting in third set breaker on match point... really sucks.

Fortunately, as a fan of UNM tennis, none of the UNM tennis players would do anything like that. Personally, I think that the soccer player was just following the example of our illustrious football coach (http://sports.espn.go.com/ncf/news/story?id=4608686).

From earlier in the year Fed Cup, nearly the exact same situation as the Serena match, yet Pennetta doesn't get the point penalty on MP or even a warning for her actions.

Pennetta wound up winning the match.
