Re: "Lemon of the year"

I'd go for rodionova: it doesn't happen every year that a player has to quit a match because of bad behaviour

Re: "Lemon of the year"

Really tough poll, I voted for that Swiss player and her husband´s tantrums, but Liezel was really bad too...

Re: "Lemon of the year"

Well that was the first time I've seen that video of huber and there was no need for her to shout like that at Nadia's apology. If I was nadia i'd have shouted back next time I'll do it twice as bloody hard

Re: "Lemon of the year"

What happened to Rodionova? Is she the person who lost a match because the umpire disqualified her?

Re: "Lemon of the year"


I mean yeah, Petrova is a bitch, but these kinda things happen in doubles. I've been hit by a really fast serve already and reacted quite normal, and I'm not anykinda doubles specialist, like she is for years!
