    From the Bermuda Royal Gazette on the Mardy Fish-Oscar Hernandez match at the Bermuda Challenger over the weekend:

    "In terms of talking points, the match between Fish and Hernandez was undoubtedly the game of the day, particularly as both players were not afraid to make it perfectly obvious that they cannot stand each other. While the first set passed off without major incident, by early in the second both Fish and Hernandez were trading insults from their chairs in between games while also giving the chair umpire as hard a time as possible.

    Then, after losing his serve, something Fish said to him as they crossed in between games clearly riled the Spaniard, who shouted "watch what you say to me" at Fish before lodging a vociferous complaint with the match official -- all of which his opponent seemed to find highly amusing...The atmosphere remained as poisonous as ever after that, with both players screaming across the net virtually every time the other made a mistake, with the umpire's pleas for them to "be professional" going totally unheeded.

    Afterwards, an angry Hernandez did not pull any punches, accusing Fish of arrogance and bad sportsmanship. "He always acts like he is better than everybody else but I think today proved that is not true," he said. "He is not the best, no matter what he thinks. I was just trying to concentrate and get on with playing my game and it was him who kept making trouble. As I was walking to my chair at the start of the second set he walked passed and told me to 'f*** myself' which made me very angry."

    Why do these guys hate each other so much? I hope they settled their differences off the court.
