50 greatest sporting insults (tennis)

http://www.timesonline.co.uk/tol/spo...cle2178440.ece (full list)
35 "You can't see as well as these f***ing flowers - and they're f***ing plastic." John McEnroe's rant at a line judge is spoilt somewhat by the second clause.

...25 "Eighty per cent of the top 100 women are fat pigs who don't deserve equal pay." Richard Krajicek, the 1996 Wimbledon champion, on why there should not be equal pay. Later, he clarified his comments, saying, "What I meant to say was that only 75 per cent are fat pigs." Charming.
...22 "What problems do you have, apart from being unemployed, a moron and a dork?" John McEnroe calls it how he sees it to a tennis spectator
...13 "I’m not the next [Anna] Kournikova — I want to win matches." Maria Sharapova, the Russian tennis player, brushes aside an attempted compliment.

But I, being poor, have only my dreams
I have spread my dreams under your feet
Tread softly because you tread on my dreams

Re: 50 greatest sporting insults (tennis)

richard krajicek... the fact that he jokedf about it when he said 75% is actually more annoying

Re: 50 greatest sporting insults (tennis)

What made Krajicek's remarks even worse was that the guys in the media LOVED it. I wish I hadn't thrown out my old tapes cuz I had this on video. The media types were rolling in the isles during his press conference, and if I remember correctly the second part {"What I meant to say was that only 75 per cent are fat pigs."} was actually offered by a "journalist" and Richard laughed and nodded and then said it.
