You don't understand it cause you prefer Costa.I try to understand why his fans didn't see anything wrong with his injury timeout,but I was rooting for Nico,so that's hard.Hendouble said:I don't understand why everyone was complaining in the scoring thread about Costa's "whingeing", it was perfectly justified. Lapentti is a very irritating player, he deliberately slows down the pace of the game, takes an eternity to serve and sucks all the spirit out of his opponents through his parasitic clinging on to matches he should lose.
I saw that.Believe I wouldn't have made a comment if I hadn't seen the whole thing.And LOL,how do you know what kind of neck problem it was?This is really amusing...(sorry my inner bitch strikes again)treufreund said:PS, Al took some medication and had a massage. It was probably not a major injury but I suffer from these types of neck problems and know that they are quite painful but can go away quickly´.
Lapentti and Costa get along great and there was nothing that either did that I found objectionable but it did seem at times that LAPENTTI was exaggerating his cramps at the end and isn't he the very same guy who accused Roddick (or was it another player?) of doing the very same thing in the past?
treufreund said:"After a tight first set, won by Lapentti, Costa called the physio in for treatment on a stiff neck at 4-3 down in the second. The quick massage was not enough to enable him to salvage the second set though. Lapentti's deft drop-shots and a delightful combination of cross-court strokes had Costa chasing shadows. The fans in Suzanne-Lenglen Court were not about to let Costa go without a fight though. They roared the champion back into action in the third and he regained the initiative, winning it 6-3."

so it's not like Al came back after treatment and played great to win the second set!
