I am appalled with his conduct. He has ruduced himself to mere chav with his booing of a respected official - just because she correctly applied the rules in ther Razzanol v Williams match

Eva Asderaki knows more about the rules of tennis than this imbecile who is masquerading as President of FFT. Just shows you, you may have the flash suits and a classy title- but you may never be a classy person. He is a disgrace

I actually think the ITF should step in an censure this prat for his embarrassing behaviour.

All he is is a chav!!

And while I am on the subject the amount of bias being shown to French officials in giving them matches on the showcourts is embarrassing - and all male officials.

If you are not gold standard/and or have not put in the hours on the ATP or WTA tours you should not be elligable for the showcourts. Not even Wimbledon are this biased

Grand Slams have the right to put their country players on show courts if they want. France has a lot of good ranked players (Tsonga, Bartoli, Simon, Gasquet), some well known tennis players that have already done great in Roland Garros or in slams (Clement, Benneteau) and the others players are/were facing top seeds (Mahut, Devilder, Razzano) or were last one standing (like Johansson this morning).

Nothing was shocking in the schedule.



Everything about the FFT president is right though.

I am not referring to the players - I mean the umpires who on the show courts they are showing bias to - even if they are not putting the hours in on the respective tours or gold standard officials

I'm watching the tournament since day one and most umpire on showcourts are talking with an accent :shrug: I don't remember having seen that much French umpire there.

Agree.

Asderaki did a stellar job as usual.

I love Serena but that was a hindrance at the US Open as it was here at the French Open for Razzano.

He's just jelis cause she's half his age and hot to boot.

May the cult of Asderaki live on :worship:

I find no fault :shrug:

The English are just frustrated because they have NO players in the top 50. Murray is Scotch. Amazing that the head of the French Federation would root and stand by an underdog French Woman in the heat of a match! This umpire overdoes the hinderance rule. She will be warned about it, if she hasn't been already. I dare her to make such a ruling against Serena again-LOL!!

She does not overdose on the hindrance rule.

Unlike some she actually applies it.

Why should somebody be penalised for doing their job correctly? :shrug:

:weirdo:

She did a very good job. Stop !!!! I am French, but I've never booed someone. I would boo someone if he is being disgusting.
In that case, no one was being disgusting.
In Bercy 2008, everyone was butthurt at Fed and Nadal retiring so they booed Nadal, and I applauded him despite being disappointed because I paid for a few matches that didn't happen :rolleyes: Or during Tsonga-Roddick Bercy 2008 or Sharapova-Henin 2010, the crowd was totally behind both Tsonga and Henin. I was very loud, but never booed. I even applauded Roddick and Sharapova when they were doing a good job.

So being French and rooting for the french underdog doesn't justify all.

:facepalm: Let me speak your language. It's the equivalent of Bud Selig actively booing oh, I don't know, CC Sabathia because he struck out Ryan Braun in the World Series with the bases loaded purely because he's from Milwaukee.

As a leader of a sports organization, you're supposed to promote impartiality, respect for the game and the rules.

no i am not allison laing - but i know a bit about the officiating - if this odious president has been having words with the referee and encouraging him to shunt eva asderaki off to outside courts because he doesn't like it when rules are put into practice then surely such an ignorant idiot has no right to hold any form of office let alone a presidency

Of course, he alone would not do such a thing. I think the players and officials of the WTA and ATP would be aginst this rule staying as it is, or being enforced unnecessarily. People who attend sporting events, even officials, tend to get carried away in rooting for a player or team. The important thing is that Razzano was not deprived of a victory by a stupid rule or a senseless official. All rules are not perfect or fair, therefore, all rules should be subject to change. I still think this Eva is as attention seeking fool, who will make enemies of players and fans for no good reason.

I'm firmly in the camp of people who think this man is a biased idiot. He and the French tennis federation are already responsible for Marion not going to Olympics, backing other players that are not one but several leagues below her. His thoughtless chauvinistic comments here only confirm that he's the wrong man for the job. It is as it so often is. Brainless people in expensive suits berating others who actually know a thing or two.

And given Asderaki is young enough to be Gasschessins daughter it must doubly wounding for an old fogy who only played rugby union like him that she knows better than he does.

Showcourt today

Kvitova v Bratchikova Julia Minori - Norway - Silver Standard
Li v McHale - Mariana Alves - Portugal - Gold Standard
Schiavone v Lepchenko - Eva Asderaki - Greece - Gold Standard


Why should Gasschisson get away with his bad attitude towards Asederaki when all Eva did was correctly apply the rules
