    so, does anyone know what cheesed off Capdeville at the end of the match that they got into a fight with Ancic??
    I only saw a little clip, but they were ready to kill each other. I wonder if they'll be fined... I presume so.

    yeah, i couldn't figure out what he was upset about either... did he think the ball bounced twice on ancic's side?

    on ESPN they said something about Ancic considering the point over before they called it... I don't know... it's just bizarre to see this kinda reaction.. Capdeville is a pretty quiet kid. and Ancic doesn't seem the fight-picker-upper type.

    no, there was pretty decent physical contact until the umpire stepped in... no punches or anything, but i think that was only a second or two away.

    sounds like a typical tennis player fight to me, a bunch of yelling and no punches, one of the ballgirls was probably holding ancic back...

    ancic hit a drop shot and was very certain that capdeville wouldn't get it. so he walked away before the point was officially over and shaked the umpires hand.
    capdeville considered this disrespectful and got mad. ancic should have waited and walked to the net to shake hands. not nice either.

    Yeah, sounds like Ancic wasn't quite classy enough, but Capdeville must be a nutcase. And sounds strange to me that Ancic would yell back and break his racquet. Obviously there's something else between those two.

    Yeah they just showed something about it. I didn't see Ancic break his racquet though. They just pushed each other around a bit before the umpire stepped in.

    Basically what happened was that Capdeville hit a drop shot and Ancic ran to it and got it over and Capdeville couldn't return it (or didn't try, I couldn't tell). This was on match point and Ancic had just won. Capdeville apparently thought that Ancic had hit the ball twice before he got it back. They yelled at each other a little and the umpire broke it up. I did not see Ancic smash his racquet.

    Yep, Capdeville complained to the umpire about the twice-hit which wasn't successful. Then Ancic came to shake hand but Capdeville just got pissed and kinda shoved him away.. then they started yelling and pushing each other. He did say in the interview that he got mad at the umpire, not Ancic, though. Ancic was like.. I won the match, I don't care. :D

    Ancic smashed his racquet on the chair afterwards but it didn't break though.. (which also proves that Yonex has better built than Head?)

    Violence in tennis courts: It's not related to the Ancic vs. Capdeville incident, but 20 years ago I saw Claudia Casabianca, a good argentine player, getting slapped in her face by his furious father, who, completely out of control, entered the court and hit his daughter in front of a couple thousand people. Just because she wasn't following his coaching.

    No, it was because of the supposedly double bounce and why the chair never called it. I saw the post match interview on espn, but their english was barely coherent, but it was definately about the bounce and the chair. The early handshaking probably got the shoving started though...

    For what it is worth, Ancic put his hands on Capdeville first.

    I think it would have been appropriate for the chair umpire to put both guys over his lap for a good spanking.

    after they shoved each other, and umpire broke them up, ancic was about to put his racquet into his bag, but instead he got pissed and smashed his racquet into the chair

    That's pretty loser-ish. "I just won a match, but the other guy pushed me and called me names. I'll show him by cracking one of my own racquets."

    Maybe they'll start playing tennis in the "octagon". I would definitely pay for that. Tennis and UFC, can't beat that.

    Trust me....neither one of those guys wanted to fight. Ancic looked scared to death and acted fairly womanly about the whole situation. He should have stood there and discussed it like a man with Capdeville and then if they couldn't resolve the issue, I would invite him to meet me somewhere off of the grounds.

    Thanks for the link. That was hilarious. The funniest part is that the umpire looked like he could snap both of those skinny players in two.

    Looks to me like they must have a history. And Ancic was the first to strike. The other guy must have said something. I'm guessing that Ancic is the bad guy here, not Capdeville.

    Haha, I love the post comments by Ancic. He does not want to go too deep into it, doesn't think it is a big deal. The interviewer is just trying to get some dirt and gets absolutely nothing from Ancic. Can anyone explain what Capdeville was saying in his interview? I am not good enough in Spanish to understand it.

    Yeah, then you brake your knuckle or metatarsal and you kiss your million dollar career goodbye. That's just stupid.

    ok, I'll try to explain this... Capdeville said that he didn't have issues with Ancic, indeed he talks about how hard it was to play him, but, his problem was with the chair empire who in his opinion made several bad calls in favor of Ancic. while there he said he was going to shake hands with ancic when Ancic said "you've been crying the whole match" along with some bad words and a little push. this cheesed Capdeville off and then what we all saw.
    I think based on that interview that Capdeville was definitely the bigger man there. and his explanation much more mature than Ancic's

    I suppose after you saw the video you realised Ancic wasn't trying to break his racquet but he just threw it on the bench. If you just wanted to kick someone and were stopped by the umpire or whatever I suppose you would calmly put your racquet in the bag?

    I don't have a clue what really happened, who started it...was it Ancic pushing him out of no reason, or Capdeville saying something before that...but surely Ancic did a better job not commenting anything. Unlike Capdeville. We'll never know who's telling the truth, but Ancic could've blaimed Capdeville but he didn't.

    It seems highly unlikely that after winning in 3 sets a player would attack his oponent without a reason. Something must've pissed him off badly.
    Although, pushing the umpire wasn't a good idea...he'll get fined for that one I'm sure.

    Was there a double bounce? Video is grainy but it sure looks to me like it bounces twice. What does everyone else see?
