Tennis is the ONLY sport I know of where players are allowed to abuse both verbally and with hand gestures to the head chair. In baseball or any other sport they would be out. I heard that a couple of days ago Koubek called the chair a *ucking idiot? Outrageous behavior.

They should be fined so high, they are forced to have manners.

Did anyone watch that Eurosport-Top 10 of tennis player freak outs? They´ve repeated it like millions of times during the FO this year. I just love it, it´s so much fun to watch. Andy is in the top ten twice;)

Must be great, but also very hard to be an umpire.

Jennifer is probably the woman who freaks out at the chair the most...

What the f***, she doesn´t!!! :lol: I love Jen vs. the Umpire, sometimes it´s better than the match she´s playing.

well kiefer made an ass of himself once more at 6-5 in the fourth set with a point-penalty for hitting the ball in the stands, a foot-fault which was correct and two shots from Henman which were on the line :rolleyes:

and in the end he started cursing to the umpire and the linesman i'm surprised he got over it

what an idiot :mad: i've never liked him

It's different with tennis though, because if you toss one player, the match is over, but in a team sport, the game continues. The players know that they can get away with it, so they do it. I think it's funny when they yell. I know that if I paid a lot of money for a ticket, I would be really unhappy if a player was disqualified for yelling at a chair ump.

Even though people get ejected in team sports, a lot of them act worse than tennis players. I've seen people yell right at the umpires face, pick up one of the bases and walk away with it and beat the crap out of water or gatorade coolers. I've also seen bench brawls, fist fights and plenty of violence. And who can forget Bobby Valentine getting ejected and coming back to the dugout in a Groucho Marx disguise.

Old Jenifeeer was a couple of times starting to rip into the Ump. a couple of matches ago and the ball wasn't even called out, She must have thought it was a close call so She prepared to smarten the bugger up just in case!
There's certainly no flies on Miss Capster!

From the little I have seen of her (very little I admit), Lindsay appears to like to ask the umpire whether she/he is retarded... In an extremelly annoying american accent too :D ;).
