Safin SHOULD have dropped his pants again at this unsportsmanlike French crowd!

This would have been a great gesture for this treatment after winning a match!

You should be allowed to get treatment only at changeovers, not in the middle of a game. Unless you have twisted your ankle or something like that.

Stylish as usual, the French reserve their boos only for the creme-of-the-crop.

Everyone gets their fair amount of boos :D It's part of Roland Garros :bowdown: it doesn't mean they don't like the player, they are just way opinionated :angel:

They loved Safin's trick and I think they were booing the umpire, or Safin for complaining to the umpire coz he was given a penalty :D

im glad that newspapers and magazines are talking about how stupid this crowd is. wish this way they realise how pathetic and stupid they are and stop booing to players and others.

i wouldn't have booed safin if he did this, but there's no reason as to why blisters couldn't have waited a couple more points, if it was already at deuce.

Safin deserved the boos for his tactical timeout when Potito was serving for the match at deuce.

i dont know if you all understand Spanish but Safin said in Spanish something like to the referee
" fuck you , i dont give a fuck about you all (referees), all of you are stupid hos.........)
dont know if you all saw/heard it but i saw/heard it and i counldt believe that the referee did nothing to him like the Portuguese commentator said "......but hes Safin........". that made me so pissed off

HE deserved every single one of those boos so I don't see a problem :scratch:

I agree, Safin should have dropped his trousers again. Maybe this time they would've got a better camera angle ;)
