    I saw that as well...didn't surprise me tho, that was one of the sweetest matches I've seen in a long time (Dimitrov's groin exploding, Monfils stopping mid-rally and winning the rally TWICE, horrible commentating from Jensen, etc.)...it should have ended in a smooch.

    I don't know why Dimitrov didn't bestow similar affection on Ferrer in Cincy, does he not respect him or something?

    that's one of the weirdest things ive seen. when monfils rejected the tongue, they went to a cheek kiss thing that you see only with women. what the heck is with this dmitrov guy.

    Monfils is much better looking and much better kisser too.:) In Europe, it is ok for guys to show Affection for each other by kissing each other.
    We should try this more in USA as well. We might develop deeper more meaningful friendships...................:)

    Joeldeli, in your next match, Kiss your opponent instead of hand shake after the match. I am sure you will find meaningful friendship.

    Dimitrov has been training in Paris, so I guess he gets along well with many French players like Monfils, Tsonga (you can see that in the Wimbledon match between these two.) or he simply wanted to do it in French way for the winner. :p

    Grigor was totally punking him, but the look on Monfees face was totally priceless.

    Will you play Tennis And Music since he has asked you to play multiple times and then finish the match by locking lips?

    Its not the cheek kisses, its the fact that Grigor went for a mouth to mouth kiss....

    He must have confused monfils with another french player, gasquet.

    I just hope Monfils keeps his wits about him in the showers!

    'Haha, did you squirt shampoo on my back again Grigor!?! I already told you I have plenty!'

    After a long match....Dimitrov had to feel a bit dousy.....he was aiming for a cheek kiss....but almost missed. Monfils assited him.

    It isn't ****! I've been to europe and it is like that with my cousins and the people there. A polite gesture.
     
  36. Well I'm down for the first part but uh...not the second...

    This isn't an attack on the gaye lifestyle thread or on customs in Europe.

    Its a thread that exposes comedy gold on Grigor's part. Its obvious they're good buddies.

    Its funny as fuch.

    So we have one young player (Harrison) getting lambasted by the board for having a temper after losing, and another (Dimitrov) for trying to kiss another man on the mouth after receiving a straight set loss.

    I think I will put my money on the fighter over the lover to have a better career.

    Oops. Kissing in sports in quite common. In Spain it's very normal to see after a substitution or a goal. On the cheek of course...

    The custom(at least in Eastern Europe) is to kiss on the cheek, not on the mouth. Especially when the parties involved are men :)

    Obviously Grigor's aim was just a bit off, but it was hilarious nonetheless :D

    Dimitrov did the double cheek kiss thing when he lost to Chardy in Paris

    he must be pretty good friends with the french players i think

    Well Monfils rejected him, but in NYC there are plenty of ladies up late that won't, oh the life of a tennis pro.

    Dimitrov is seriously pushing Karlovic as my favorite player. That smooch bit proves that he has humility to go along with his star power, maybe even more than Djokovic. We'll see. It will be an enjoyable ride for all tennis fans throughout the years he spends as #1 in the world.

    +1 on that.. the cheek thing is as french as it can be.
    But, Grigor goes straight for the mouth and there's no comedy about it afterwards, it's so strange :)
