I don't think it should be banned, just ridiculed. It was a bit tasteless in my opinion and contradicts the ultra-defensive manner in which he played the match. I feel the same way about the bicep flexing/kissing that some of the other pushers, sorry players, do after points.

I don't think he intended to cause offense, rather was focused on being an celebrity entertainer and congratulating himself. I think it was a cheesy move, but Novak is a cheesy guy (gagnam style overuse anyone?) so it isn't out of character. This isn't WWF, I would have thought only small children would find the hulk hogan theatrics entertaining, perhaps I was wrong.
I like it when Relinquis posts because then I don't have to. quoted for TRUTH.

However, I have referenced the WWF in a positive way in my comments on Murray's on court demeanor, but that was a different context. I don't feel I am contradicting myself.
ATP: Topspin is OP. Devs please nerf.
My Tennis: My serve has too much topspin and my forehand not enough.
