Clips or Accounts of REALLY BAD Handshakes

Well what would Wtaworld be without drama? Same as tennis, where we all love the drama on the court and all that awesome stuff . So I just wanted to start this thread to hear what people have to say or post about handshakes which have turned out to be horrible.

One that comes to mind is obviously Patty's "handshake" with Hantuchova. Or her semi-slap semi-handshake in Berlin with Ana (http://youtube.com/watch?v=dN3cREkFbmw. Or her lack of handshake at 2004 Charleston against Martinez. Alright this is not a hating session either because frankly I love Patty and her feisty attitude.

So, do you know any other handshakes? =P Please post your stories! (Can't wait to hear about Rodionova ).

Serena. Simona. Ana. Petra. Venus.
Clijsters, Henin, Dementieva, Davenport.
Martina Hingis - "No one else played like Hingis - no one could."

There was a clip of Anna K. and Hingis playing as juniors, and their handshake was so bad.

Re: Clips or Accounts of REALLY BAD Handshakes

You can find a "non-handshake" between Smashnova and Golovin on YouTube that's pretty amusing. Listen to Tati on the last point....

Re: Clips or Accounts of REALLY BAD Handshakes



I remember someone telling me about Schiavone squeezing Bovina's hand in some European tournament. That would be awesome to see

Serena. Simona. Ana. Petra. Venus.
Clijsters, Henin, Dementieva, Davenport.
Martina Hingis - "No one else played like Hingis - no one could."

Re: Clips or Accounts of REALLY BAD Handshakes

The infamous handshake between conchita and patty at charleston in '04

Patty didn't like conchita's mannerisms.. such as always wanting the same ball that she won the previous point with.. Patty got sick of it and started hiding the balls in her skirt



When conchita finally won the match.. Patty acted as if she was going to shake her hand, then pulled away at the last second and called her a "disgusting bitch."



Conchita then turned to the ump and asked if she heard what patty said to her.



Classic

"I want to do things on my own terms, I can't have anything take me out.
I have never given up and it's important for me to prove to myself that I can do this, and to prove to me that i'm a champion.
If I were just to sit down, lay down and give in, then I wouldn't have any respect for myself."

Re: Clips or Accounts of REALLY BAD Handshakes

No one can beat the Conchita-Patty "handshake"

Sharapova / Bartoli / Azarenka / Rezaď
Cornet / Karatantcheva / Kirilenko
Safina / Dulko / Görges / Shvedova
Fedak / Czink / Harkleroad / Gallovits
Kleybanova / A.Bondarenko / Watson

Re: Clips or Accounts of REALLY BAD Handshakes

YEC 2001, Lindsay vs Kim, Lindsay was so mad at a line call, instead of shaking the umpire's hand, she hit her (the umpire's) chair with her racket!!
patty/conchita still the mother all all kinds of weird.

Rena- a tennis great! 22 at striking distance.
