    Tough call, I went with Henin just because Kiefer's probably didn't think his stunt through as much. He probably just did it without thinking.

    enough with the freakin bashing of players!
    I think that the henin incident was slightly more, erm, not unsportmanslike, but something...just at a loss to what the word is!

    For sure, the INFAMOUS Henin surrender down under. Nothing that happened in tennis this decade can even come close!!!

    Pretty clearly Kiefer's.

    Kiefer, with his racquet-throwing, could have unfairly influenced the outcome of the match in his favor. (We'll never know whether him winning that point instead of losing it ACTUALLY made a difference, but there's a definite nonzero chance.)

    Justine, with the retirement, could not have influenced the match in her favor.

    Therefore, Justine's infraction is much more mild than Kiefer's.

    Not even close. JHH's surrender was just that-a cowardly surrender.
    Keifer's actions were just retarded.

    In my 30+ plus years of watching pro tennis, nothing stands
    out as much as the hand incident. This last disgrace does not surprise.

    So McEnroe telling the ref to f*** his own mother was not so bad?
