What was most unsportsmanship-like behavior displayed by any player?

In my opinion, the Miami incident between Maria and Tatiana was not famous for this. But it also showed the lack of emotional support Maria showed, as exemplified by the unmerciful crowd.

Rodionova is the worst for that sort of stuff.

Re: What was most unsportsmanship-like behavior displayed by any player?

i think at the US Open 2005 in the semis when dementieva took like a 12 minute break in between sets against pierce. she almost always does that sort of stuff when she is losing. but as the eurosport commentators keep on mentioning, the players havent taken any breaks in between sets and i prefer it that way.

Re: What was most unsportsmanship-like behavior displayed by any player?

Someone is obsessed with Maria How cute *squee*

I'll give you some clues:
1. His name starts with B
2. It ends with the numbers 2806
3. In between are the letters 'is'

Who could it be

It's only troll if he's directing an insult at Maria. Bis asks a question here that can be expanded into a discussion. Besides, this question is open for interpretation to various players anyway.

Another clue,

he included the number 2806 because 2, 8, 0, and 6 are the only numbers he knows.
