    Ancic and deCapreville fight, Ancic pushes the umpire.

    Nalbandanian is nasty and cranky, racket tossing in Tursonov match.

    Nadal was irritated by the umpire in the Mathieu match (he did have trouble finding the right mark a coupe of times) In fact he pushed him out of the way and gestured "This is the mark"

    Lots of pushing of the ref this Slam...and fighting...is tennis the "gentleman's" sport no longer?

    Nah these players are usually very nice from what we can see...maybe it's the heat or the crowd...but I think it's mostly the intensity of the matches, the 5-setters and all

    Gentlemen's game no more. Pros are only a reflection of the general population (or vice verse I don't know). Look at the people on this board and I'm not suprised at how the game has evolved.

    well... compared to other sports, that's not terrible for the moment ! ;)

    although he didn't really push him a lot, that was pretty impertinent from nadal...

    i missed the nalbandian stuff... may you explain it to me ?

    What heat? ;-) 64 F is freezing, compared to how it should be in June.

    But yeah, they are acting strangely. I agree that it's probably because it's a Slam.

    A word from Snoop and R.E.M.

    "...With so much drama at the Roland G...."
    Weirdness rulin' in the gay Par-is...

    True, pound cat...

    Full moon, and it looks red.
    Dark sun.
    And that cryptic banana reference in Revelation came true, too.
