    Imagine if a top player now went right for the guy? I can't imagine Federer or any others doing that...maybe Murray.

    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?

    Can they use the Hawkeye retroactively for some McEnroe and Connors matches? LOL

    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.

    (note: that last sentence was satirizing your Roddick bashing)

    What does "disprespectful" mean, by the way?

    shut up. roddick said some very bad things about a human being. Do you know the word "disrespect". What roddick did was very wrong and no one should condone him.

    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.

    No, this is the worst behavior on a tennis court.

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DnQp9YoLl68

    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.

    Oh, and the Gonzalez reaction was really dangerous too. There was a ball boy close to him and he could've gotten glass shards in his eye.

    Hopefully noone says that these are worse than Serena...Lendl hitting McEnroe is part of tennis, granted it's not the sporting thing to do. But none of these videos did anyone THREATEN to harm another player or judge.

    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.

    Yeah, and the glass flew at Sweden's prime minister or king. I can't remember who it was.

    The commentator sounds likes he is asleep. What a clown. But like the Serena call he thought is was ridiculous.

    He is, its rea;;y bad for the game what he is doing. Thats pretty disrespectful to say that to an umpire. Roddick is always looking to get attention, he really is the "Kanye West" of tennis.

    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.

    The Connors and McEnroe tirades were more funny then what I would consider "absolute worst behavior".

    To the OP:

    The link to the Martinez Schnyder isn't right... can you link us to the right one? I've actually never seen it .

    I think we need to change thread title to "Videos that make Conquistador cry like a little baby about Roddick because Conquistador IS a little baby"

    Seriously, Calm down?

    And don't you dare compare KANYE WEST to Andy Roddick
    cause 1: Kanye has nothing to do with tennis
    and 2: his music is garbage

    Yes that should be considered one of the funniest moments in tennis not what the OP describes "absolute worst behavior". The McEnroe tirades are more funny then something that should be looked down upon.

    @ ConquistaTROLL

    You really are the king of hyperbole, calling Roddick a disgusting (or however you spelled it) human being for showing anger, as if you've never done anything wrong before and are a perfect person. Someone get this hypocrite outta here. You really are the most annoying poster on all of TT. Saying shocking stuff just to be shocking doesn't make you bold, it just makes you annoying ConqistaTROLL.

    Wow what a b**ch.
