Re: Wimbledon QR3 (24) Maria Elena Camerin bt Tatiana Poutchek 6-7 6-3 7-5
Tatiana proved she's not a total lunatic so my respect for her has increased. She realised today was important so was relatively restrained. Instead of bouncing the racquet she smacked herself across the top of her thighs with the edge of her racquet. I think the former was better. You can buy a new racquet but you can't buy new legs.
She also influenced the umpire into giving Maria Elena a code violation for swearing, even though it was in Italian. She asked why MEC hadn't been given a code violation and he replied "because she wasn't talking to me"! - but after a changeover MEC used the word c*zz* again and he gave it to her.
